at lllloooonnnnggggg last...

Phew that took a long time but finally something is working...right start again, good morning everyone what you up to this weekend?, anything exciting?...Phil's away racing again so I'm on my own but think I might head out to town that's if there's a break in the constant rain....how soggy can a country get do you think?...don't you think its funny that we have to one of the wettest countries in the world yet every year there's hose pipe bans lol...just how much rain do we have to have before the reservoirs are full...I think a lot of it is down to bad maintenance and we have a lot of leaks, story of our lives lol...right now finally onto my card for today which is using this beautiful image from Darcy's Diaries, I love this gorgeous image but cant help feeling its quite a sad image she is called Swinging Blues...I coloured her with distress inks and even coloured the background but its really hard to see...the lush papers I teamed her up with are from the Cosmo Cricket 6" x 6" Mini Deck - Baby Jane I love the colour combo in this pad as its one I normally wouldn't use but it really works...its from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the punched butterflies and the sentiment are all from the same pad too...I finished with a lushly rich red satin bow...the sketch is from the Just Inspirational Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Cardmadfairy's Digi Days challenge and the Totally Gorjuss challenge too...btw a few of you have asked how the house hunt is coming on...it isn't lol, who knew it was so hard to find something that both of you love but very hard it is, but we are still looking....ssssshhhhh I quite fancy having a look at a 4 bed penthouse apartment overlooking the river but don't tell Phil lol...right I'm off to check out the weather forecast in case I need my bad weather gear for the whole day so I can head out, we women of a certain age rust if we go out for too long in a bad weather you know lol...whatever your up to today I hope you don't end up soggy
