BFF...

Good morning everyone I hope you all had a brilliant day yesterday, its was another soggy one here, it poured all day and most of the night again but my lovely Dad went out for a little mooch with me anyway and we had a little walk through Lidl too, I love their jam sssssssoooooo much its scrummy on croissants so I grabbed a couple of jars at 80p each...oh I do love a bargain don't you, and my Dad loves their chocolate digestives too so we got some of those for him too...hes back off on his travels tomorrow, off back to Belfast and then the Monday after next hes off to England, I'm so pleased hes able to get out and about like that I think it would break his heart if he was stuck in the house, remember how bad he was when he couldn't drive after his eye operation...my card for today is using this fantastic High Hopes stamp, its called Cat Trio and I think its perfect for a BFF (best friends forever) card don't you...I coloured them with distress inks and teamed them up with these lush papers from the Glitz 6x6" Paper Pack - Vintage Blue pad, stunning aren't they...I finished with a punched border white ribbon and bow and a fabulous Prima Flowers Primmers - White Cotton flower...everything except the ribbon is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts , the lush sketch is from The Sweet Stop Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Sweet Stampin' challenge and Di's Digi Design challenge...we are of to the Ikea sale today, I couldn't resist any longer, I tried honestly but theres no way...I think we might stop for a spot of lunch on the way too...whatever your up to have a brilliant day...oh I will be back a little later with my Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly candy winner
