Im loving orange...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a fantastic bank holiday weekend, for those who got the bank holiday of course...the heavens opened very early in the morning here so we decided we would go to the Antiques Fair, so many lovely sparkly things (Phil thinks I'm part Magpie) so we spent hours there and I bought two gorgeous blingy brooches, one for me one for our Daughter, the woman said one was 1940's and the other 50's...hhhmmmmmmm not sure about that but they were only £15 for the two so I thought they were a bargain anyway...then we decided to have lunch in the Hotel where it was, we went for a platter for two which at £11 we thought would be a nice not too heavy lunch...omg I have never seen so much food for two people...it made the table groan...the light lunch idea went flying out the window...home, changed and relaxing for the rest of the afternoon was called for, well we had to rest our full tums didn't we, so a nice day all in all...right now onto my card for today which is using this fabulous Funky Kits cutie, its from the Home Grown Sugar Nellie collection and is called Faye and Freddie, isn't she a sweetie and I love that frog...I coloured her with distress ins and of course she has wings and you now I have to use glitter on wings, its the crafting law isn't it?...how amazing is this paper from Graphic45, I'm loving orange atm for some reason and this colour combo with the green leaves and splash of red is just lush isn't it...the paper is from the Tropical Travelogue collection and is called Island Jewel...maybe I love this paper because it reminds me of tropical holidays oooohhhhhhhh wouldn't you just love a few weeks somewhere tropical...I finished my card with some of the lush flowers cut from the paper, a sentiment from my stash and a lush two tone orange ribbon...the lush sketch is from The Sweet Stop challenge and I'm also entering it for the Anything Goes challenge and the Crafty Calender challenge...I'm having a crafting day today, I feel the need to colour and when you gotta colour you just gotta haven't you, you girls now what I mean don't you...whatever your up to today I hope the heavens don't open on you and you stay dry and warm
