come fly with me...

Good morning everyone have you got anything nice planned for today?...go on make us all jealous and let us know...well there was no trip to Ikea but instead we went for eggs benedict for breafast then a trip to the craft shop, its a good thing theres a comfy sofa in there I get to chat to the girls, shop and Phil relaxes and chats away too...I bought er...have a guess lol...papers and ribbons, well there was some lush Graphic45 and Echo Park papers so I just couldnt resist...its a serious addiction isnt it...oh and I bought extra ribbons Im going to have a ribbon giveaway this week, they are gorgeous colours too and I will throw in some of the checked wide ones I have been using...lush and such beautiful colours too, so watch out for it as you dont want to miss a chance of winning them, Im still not used to having Phil home full time but I am sssssooooo enjoying it, although hes at work its feels like holidays as thats when we spent our time together, although I do seriously hate with a vengeance cooking, I will do everything I can to avoid it, when our Daughter was living at home I cooked every day was organised with meals etc but just kinda got out of the habit while Phil was woring away for all those year...I hope the habit dosent come back lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this sweetest cutest little Marianne Design Clear Stamp - In the air, isn't it sssssssoooooooo cute and it made me go aaaaahhhhhh when I saw it...I coloured it with distress inks and teamed it up with the lush new Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Song Bird like all the stunning Prima pads its so beautifully soft and the designs are stunning, the teeny little tag is cut from the same pad too...the pad and stamp are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...all I finished my card with was some more of the lush brown gingham ribbon I bought at the craft fair...the fab sketch is from the Try Stampin' On Tuesday challenge and Im also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and CCEE stampers challenge too...we are heading out for a walk today if the weather holds up...if its warm we might even go for a picnic, I love picnics mind my idea of a good picnic is tapas from M&S with dessert and a chilled bottle of something sparkling so they happen rarely lol...whatever your up to have a fantastic day

Hmmmm those papers are sooo lovely! I know just what you mean about the cooking...makes me batty to have to do it ALL the time. Not even the cooking, but figuring out WHAT to cook! Sounds like you are really enjoying having your darling Phil around all the time, certainly a pleasant adjustment!
