oops a bit more yellow sneaked in...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and looking forward to your weekend, I have to give a big massive huge thank you to everyone of you who donated to Steph's Marathon appeal yesterday, all those who did wow your so wonderful and please don't forget to add another link to my candy for your second chance...there's still loads of time to give if any of you would like to the link is here...Phil is off to the motorbike racing tomorrow but you know what...I really don't mind at all, now I see him every night the weekend is going to be time for us to share and enjoy and if it makes him happy then I'm all for it...I think before because we only had weekends there was a lot of pressure on to pack everything in and although I would never have dreamed of asking him not to go I did mind a bit that he spent another whole day away...a lot of the pressure is off and I'm sure hes pleased to get away from me for a while lol...right now onto my card for today, have you ever seen more colours in a paper than in this one, oooohhhh and a bit more yellow (see I warned you lol)...the amazing paper is from Echo Park's For the Record collection and is called Apron Strings, stunning isn't it...I used this stunning Crafts and Me digi called Ocean Rose coloured with distress inks and finished with a lush checked ribbon and bow and a few buttons...I'm entering this for the Creative Card Crew challenge, Divas By Designs challenge and the CES challenge...well I'm off out with my lovely Dad for a catch up coffee and a bit of shopping today, cant wait...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

How was Phil's first week at the job?? So much better to enjoy each other every day and not feel the need to make "hapy" weekends!!!
Yellow is so difficult but you managed it well Mina!!
