back to normal...

Good morning everyone are you all enjoying this fantastic sunny weather, I'm loving it, its so wonderful not to have to put the heat on at night, I still haven't forsaken the woolly socks yet though...you never know do you...we went for a lovely drive and walk yesterday morning and then for breakfast...although I had to bite my tongue while I was in the breakfast cafe, there was two workmen there who were making obscene gestures behind some schoolgirls backs...it makes me so mad and sick to the stomach they were so pervy and creepy, they think its ok to do that in public and I was so tempted to go over and say something but the girls were leaving and the men caught me watching them and got embarrassed and stopped....aaaarrrrggggghhhhhh what is wrong with them...your ok you can come out now my soapbox moment is over lol...right now its a normal day today no blog hop so I have made my card using this so so cute little CC Designs Swiss Pixie Rainy Day Birgitta isn't she so sweet sheltering underneath her leaf...I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her sweet little dress with some of the lush Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Fairy Belle papers, this is such a beautiful pad but then which Prima pads aren't lol...the pad and stamp are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts I finished my card with some beautiful purple organza ribbon and bow and a stunning charm I bought a few weeks ago from a local shop...amazing isn't it. The sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Saturday Challenge and the Creative Inspirations challenge too...I'm going to have a crafting morning then I'm cooking for my Dad and Phil and making Fajitas...but don't worry I'm not quite domesticated yet lol...whatever your up to today I hope you get time to enjoy the lovely weather
