a Sunday covered in roses...

Good morning everyone I hope your having a wonderful Sunday...the weather was sunny here yesterday which Phil was happy about, there's nothing more miserable than being outside all day long in the soaking rain is there, although his face was a little bit red last night from the sun and that's with sun screen on...poor lad lol...I didn't go out all yesterday but did a bit of cooking and a bit of crafting too so managed not to just lie about...it would seem the sleepy sickness has worn off a bit...we are heading to Town today for a little mooch about and some lunch so stretching my legs will be nice and lunch even nicer...its the Belfast craft show this week are any of you northern Ireland crafter's going to it, I think I might just head there on Thursday to stock up on some essentials, I mean where else can you get huge rolls of easilift tape for £1 each, its worth the trip just for them I think...right now onto mu card for today which is using the stunning Iris from Crafts and Me, I love the look on her face don't you, so peaceful and serene...I coloured her with distress inks and of course glittered her wings, I used the K&Company Julianne 6x6 paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts again, this pad is such amazing value it last for ages and I still haven't used even half of it...I'm so pleased I bought it...I finished my card with some beautiful cream satin and blue organza ribbons and roses and leaves cut from the same pad...a little hint for you if your cutting out flowers like these cut them from the bottom layer, I traced around the blue layer and leaving an edge cut out the flowered paper and cut them from that, does that make sense at all...the sketch I made up as I went along but I'm entering this for the Sweet Stampin' challenge, Simon Says Stamp challenge and the DYSU challenge too...I'm off to finish a card then get ready for Town, whatever your up to today have a brilliant sunny one
