hop, skip and a jump - its a double day

Good morning everyone, how fantastic is this weather I'm loving every single second of it and even the fluffy socks has been discarded to be replaced by my Birkenstocks...I love the air when the weathers like this everything smells so fresh and clean doesn't it and everyone seems to have a smile on their face...right I wont waffle on as its a double day and a release day and a hop day...phew...well today is the long awaited release day of the new Country Cousins from Sugar Nellie, you can finally pop on over to Funky Kits and buy to your hearts content...but first onto our final day of hopping for you...don't forget to leave comments for the chance to win too

your should have arrived at my blog from the amazingly talented
JANE
wow isn't her card just stunning, this little bit of sugary cuteness is called Schoolgirl and I have to admit she is my very favourite, I think I judge favourites on how much fun they are to colour and I loved colouring this cutie...I used distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers and cut out tags from Graphic45...I finished with some ribbons, a few wooden letters from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and a beautiful angel charm...the sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches and I'm also entering it for the Lexi Creations challenge too

your next hop on our hop is the fantastic
VICKY
just wait until you see what she has to show you...wow, enjoy the hop and don't forget your comments

right now for my second card for today which is using this oh so cute and just in time for Fathers Day release from the Stampfairy (many thanks for asking me to be your Guest DT for May), this is the gorgeous Herb Basketball release avail at the Stampfairy shop, the basketball image I used for my sentiment is a freebie today too...I coloured him with distress inks and found this lush paper at the bottom of a paper stack but I'm so sorry I haven't a clue who its by but its perfect for a Fathers Day card isn't it...I finished my card with a lush gingham ribbon and knot and a few buttons scattered around...I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge and the Try it on Tuesday challenge...phew that was a long post today and thanks for sticking with me

I'm off out shopping with our beautiful Daughter today, spot of girlie chatter, lunch and retail therapy in the sunshine, now that's a perfect day don't you think...whatever your up to today I hope you get to enjoy the weather too and thanks for staying through my long long long post
