sand storm????

Good morning everyone did you all have a wonderful weekend?...I think we have finally recovered from our trip thank goodness, we had a little mooch around Town yesterday and went out for a lush lunch at a great little bistro...yummy food and the most amazing decor as its also a shop what I would call knicky knacky shop, you know one of those places that sells nothing you need but everything you would love to own...gorgeous pictures especially but astronomically expensive...when we came out there was a mini storm going on, the winds were swirling and it just ripped my umbrella out of my hand and when we got back to the car it was covered in a film of sand????...we are about 5 miles from the sea so go figure where that came from, what on earth is next raining frogs???...anyway onto my card for today which is for our new monthly challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge, this month the theme is a really easy one of Anything Goes, so whatever you would like really...I chose this stunning Tilda from the new Summer Memories collection called Rose Garden Tilda, isn't she stunning, I'm loving these new ones they are a little bit smaller and more delicate feeling than the normal Tilda's and beautiful to colour...I used distress inks for mine and teamed her up with these stunning Magnolia papers called Rose Garden (rose one) and Sage Kitchen Cloth (check one) aren't they beautiful...the stamp and paper is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with a checked ribbon and one of the roses cut from the paper (I love doing this any excuse to cut things up lol)...the fab sketch is from Creative Inspirations challenge and I'm also entering it into the last ever CES Challenge and the Lovely hAnglar & Sweet Magnolia challenge too...I'm having a crafting day today my scissors are crying out to me to cut more things up, so I'm going to fish out all the lush papers and ribbons I have bought over the last few weeks...btw did you all enter my ribbon candy, they really are fantastic ribbons and there is loads of them...its on the post below...whatever your up to today watch out for the frogs
