Im seeing spots...

Good morning everyone I hope your doing well and have a good week...we went shopping yesterday, I was just noticing and a few people we met have commented that my Dad is looking really well, I think his eyes were really getting him down and he just wouldn't admit it...now he has that wicked twinkle in his eyes back, if I could just get him to go see an ear specialist and getting his hearing sorted out he wouldn't have to constantly ask me what people are saying...thing is he asks me way after the event and some days my memory isn't the best and I cant remember...you know if you put my Dad and me together you must get a whole person that everything works on lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Crafts and Me challenge, our challenge this time is Pearls and Lace, I used this stunningly beautiful Spring image from Sara Burrier at Crafts and Me for my card, gorgeous isn't she...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with this lacy paper from Kars...I love this paper its so so pretty and perfect for this challenge...I used the lace paper to cut out circles for the fab sketch from The Sweet Stop challenge and finished with some different coloured pearls...the sketch is a really simple one but looks fantastic don't you think...I'm also entering it for the Paper Sundaes challenge...I'm hopefully going to finish off the cards I started at the beginning of the week today, well that's the plan anyway but you never know do you, the call of the outside might just call to me...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and if you have the time pop on over to the Crafts and Me challenge to see what the rest of our team came up with
