a little bit more Glitz...

Good morning everyone Im feeling loads and loads better today, phew thank goodness for that as I was beginning to bore myself lol...its my lovely Dads his[ital appointment today to have his other eye measured for his new lense, he says he cant wait to get the other eye done now he has one done, mind he does see dust and fluff that he didnt before and he says he needs his carpets cleaned now, see what happens when he can so well I get a job or two to do lol...hes hoping he will get it done before he is off to my Neices wedding in Sicily...isnt he lucky, wish I was going but the numbers are so tight even us Auntie's arent invited which we understand of course but my Dad needs to be there for his Grandaughter...he has instructions that now he can see the hairs on a bats wings he has to take loads of photos, he wanted to borrow my camera but I just couldnt do it, I tried to let go but just couldnt stretch it that far lol...so we are lending him Phils camera as he dosent mind...anyway now onto my card for today which is using the last MayzyArt image I bought, this gorgeous ballerina is called Digi Dancers Ballet, isnt she a sweetie, I coloured her with distress inks and used a little bit more of this lush Glitz 6x6" Paper Pack - Pretty in Pink paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, lush colours arent they...I used one of the sentiments from another sheet from the same pad for the sentiment tag and finished with some lush Satin and Organza ribbons and a few buttons...the fab sketch is from Stetch & Stash challenge and Im also entering it for the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge and Paper Crafting Journey challenge too...right Im off to get ready, why on earth do appointments have to be so early in the morning that your half asleep in the waiting room...whatever your up to have a brilliant day and I hope you get a lie in
