has spring sprung...

Good morning everyone did you all have a great day yesterday, I hope so...I didn't get my afternoon lying around (do you feel sorry for me lol), my lovely Dad came home earlier than I though and he rang me as he needed shopping so off we trekked to the supermarket, I hate it on a Saturday as everyone who works all week seems to do their shopping then as they have no choice so its packed...but shopping in the trolley we even managed a put the world to rights coffee, my wonderful Dad sorted out this country and them every other one in trouble, its amazing what a pot of tea can do for world peace isn't it, maybe that's where the world leaders are going wrong lol...I have visions of all the arguing and fighting stopping because its time for tea, that would be fantastic wouldn't it, mind I know it might be sexist but I think a lot of the worlds problems would be solved by putting woman in charge, they at least can see the sheer waste of life, time and money it was...right I'm off my soapbox now and onto my card for today which is using the stunningly drawn Mummu's Bike, now who else would that be by but the talented Mo from Mo's Digital Pencil, I can honestly say hand on heart there isn't a Mo image I don't love and believe I have many of them lol...have you seen the new ones she has been drawing if not go check them out...bet you fall in love...I coloured Mummu with distress inks and used these stunning papers I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, they are from the Prima 6x6 paper pad Fairy Belle, its like all Prima pads, floaty and dreamy and beautiful...oh and I had to show you my new favourites from Bunny Zoes too, its these gorgeous sweet little wooden alphabets I used for the Spring word, arent they fabulous and they have like a coloured edge to them that really makes them pop off the page they come in a box and there's loads of them, 250 in fact...they are the Wooden Ornaments - Alphabet, I can guarantee you will be seeing these again many times...I finished my card with a muted pink seam binding bow and a couple of punched butterflies, the yellow butterfly I cut from the paper...the fab sketch is from the Papertake Weekly challenge and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Catz challenge and Crafts 4 Eternity challenge too...we are having family dinner tonight so Phil is baking today and I'm making salad and jersey royal potatoes to go with the pies...yum yum...whatever your up to have a brilliant day...oh and don't forget you only have a couple of days left to enter my candy if you haven't already and there's a second chance to win too just see the sidebar for the links

PS - our cherry tree is in full bloom despite the gray skies - so it must be spring. I don't expect the blossom to be there tonight tho - strong winds forecast!

Sherri said...

This is so beautiful. I had never pictured it done in pastels & I love it in the soft colors! I'm with you. I think women could do a much better job running the countries! After all, they are already experienced in budgets & running their families so they are ready to hit the deck running!
