springs arrived with a little bit of blossom...

Good morning everyone, well I'm still not here but here if you know what I mean...don't you just love technology, I cant imagine life without my laptop now isn't that weird how much you get used to technology...right now because I'm not here I'm going to leave you a joke everyday instead...so here we go...
Becky prepared a pasta dish for a dinner party she was giving. In her haste, however, she forgot to refrigerate the spaghetti sauce, and it sat on the counter all day. She was worried about spoilage, but it was too late to cook up another batch.
She called the local Poison Control Center and voiced her concern. They advised Becky to boil the sauce again.
That night, the phone rang during dinner, and one of the guests volunteered to answer it. Becky’s face dropped as the guest called out, “It’s the Poison Control Center. They want to know how the spaghetti sauce turned out.”

lol good one isn't it...right now onto my card for today which is using this beautiful new stamp from Whimsy stamps, its by Elizabeth Bell and called Whimsy Apple Blossom, isn't she stunning, I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her dress with some of the spotty paper I used, these stunning papers are from K & Company Sweet Nectar 6" x 6" Paper Pad scrummy aren't they, such gorgeous bright colours, I cut one of the sheets out because I loved the shape and that's what made the card shape, I finished with some more of the Prima Flowers Perie Bebe - Meadowlark pack flowers and I finished with a rich coloured Satin ribbon 15mm RED from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, fabulous colour isn't it...the paper, stamp and flowers are all from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, the great sketch is from the Sketches by Carly challenge...I will be back tomorrow with another card and a joke too maybe...have a brilliant day everyone
