every girl need a set of pink twinkly wings...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...we had gorgeous sunshine yesterday, isn't it amazing what a little bit of sunshine does for peoples moods, everyone seemed to be lighter and smiling, but I don't know if it was the sun or not but I saw two traffic accidents yesterday both involving children being picked up at school...not serious thank goodness just a couple of dents in the side and back...I hate the thought of kids being in accidents like that though don't you, there's only one thing wrong with sunshine, it shows up the dust something shocking doesn't it...I had a mooch and a bit of a shop yesterday and bought a couple of gift cards for my beautiful Daughters other half's birthday which was yesterday, then they came for dinner last night and I even got him a cake complete with candles, we sang to him and made him blow them out too, hes one of life's sweeties, such a kind and gentle soul who wouldn't hurt a fly and would give you his last breath and most important he worships our Daughter...I always buy gift cards for men's presents as I think unless they have said they would like something specific they are the hardest people to shop for so a clothes shop voucher and a HMV voucher should sort him out with a game and a new shirt I think...I don't somehow think he would have appreciated socks lol...ok now onto my card for today which is using this fantastically adorable C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Nymph Lucy isn't she gorgeous and look at those fantastic wings, I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her dress...aren't those papers just lush they are from the new Glitz range and these are from the Glitz 6x6" Paper Pack - Pretty in Pink pad, I love this new paper range and bought two of them...the papers and stamp are both from Bunny Zoe's Crafts
I finished with some black and pink ribbons and a circular sentiment, I also cut out one of the teeny roses from the paper for the centre of the sentiment...the sketch is from the Totally Gorjuss challenge and I'm also entering it for the DYSU challenge and Fairy tale challenge ...I'm hanging around the house today until I hear how my Dad got on with his appointment and if the sun is still shining I might have to do a little bit of dusting, I know I shouldn't mention the H word but needs must when the sun shows it up doesn't it...whatever your up to today step away from the dusters and have a brilliant one
