Beauty...

Good morning everyone did you all enjoy your Friday, did you get away for the day or stay at home, Phil didn't go to the racing and spent the day with me instead, what a little Darling isn't he...we went out for lunch and yummy it was too, had a little mooch around some shops and later on I cooked Chinese food, yes I know I cooked it don't all faint lol...Phil's away at the racing today though so I'm all alone for the whole day as hes usually very late back...so crafting and maybe some tv today...btw I forgot to tell you all about a bit of excitement that happened the day before we went down to the farmhouse, I was just getting ready to go in the shower and Phil was getting some things together to take with us and I heard really loud screaming for help, you know the panicky feeling you get in your chest when you hear something like that well I dashed out of the bathroom looked out my bedroom window and the young woman who has just moved in across the road from us was on her knees in her front garden leaning forward with her head in her hands screaming help I dashed out the bathroom and met Phil in the hall who was heading for the front door, the man next door and two neighbours further up the cul de sac were running towards her at the same time, I had visions of her being cut open or worse...they were having an argument and he wouldn't give her the keys to the car would you believe...we all asked if she needed help and she totally blanked us and on her feet as quick as a flash continued to scream at him through their front door...well really woman you nearly gave us all a heart attack lol...anyway onto my card for today, how amazingly beautiful is this Spring Fairy Aleta from Mo's digital Pencil...she is so gorgeous to colour but then when isn't one of Mo's images...I coloured her with distress inks and used this shaped paper from the Prima Madeline collection, I don't know what the sheets called though as this was by itself...I loved this paper so much I only added a ribbon and bow to finish...the Beauty sentiment is already on the sheet...there is no sketch today but Im entering this for the Fairy Fun Friday challenge and the Delightful Challenge...I have loads of printed images to colour today not for any reason just for the sheer pleasure of colouring, oh and I might just make a couple of cards with them lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and if you need to run out in the road make sure your not in your dressing gown lol

Gorgeous card and I just adore the way you have coloured the image.....
That woman sounds slightly odd, wonder whether she has a mental illness to make her behave that way?
