loads and loads of flowers...

Good morning everyone, I'm not mentioning the weather today as I'm rapidly becoming one of the weather police lol...how are you all, well and happy I hope, are any of you lucky enough to be going away for Easter, we aren't as Phil is marshaling at the races all day Friday and Saturday (for those that dont know he marshals motor bike road racing in his spare time), so I'm looking forward to loads of crafting and some old movies on tv, there's always some goodies on isn't there, my absolute favourite films are sci-fi or scary...the scarier the better as long as they aren't too gory though...my idea of heaven is a cup of Lady Grey tea, tucked up in bed and watching a really scarey movie in the dark...my Daughter doesn't know how I do it when I'm all alone in the dark...but I think real life is far scarier than any movie don't you...whats your idea of heaven?...thank you all so so much for all your positive vibes yesterday I don't know if its worked yet but with all those good vibes its bound to have...we wont know for about a week but will let you all know as soon as I can...right no more waffling Mina onto my card for today...how gorgeous is this little sweetie, shes from the brand new Stampavie Sarah Kay collection and is called Alice in the Morning, isn't she so pretty and girly, I coloured her with distress inks and used these lush papers from the K and Company Sweet Nectar 6x6 paper pad, the flowers I cut out from the same pad (btw theres a try me pack of these too in case you didnt want the whole pad) and because they were so gorgeous I didn't use anything else on my card except a sentiment...the stamp and papers are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I'm entering this for the Papertake Weekly challenge, Stamp with Fun Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge (my favourite tool is my teeny little curved pergamano scissors I use to cut out everything)...I'm off to do the dreaded weekend supermarket shop tomorrow as we are having family lunch on Sunday and I wont get out again before...ohhhhh my life is just one mad social whirl lol...whatever your up to today have a good one
