butterflies everywhere...

Good morning everyone are you all well...go on let me know what you have arranged for the weekend...anything exciting?...Phil has to pop into work today so we cant go far as its his turn to be in charge in case hes needed, I need to go to the craft shop for card to make my blanks with though (well that's my excuse ssssshhhhhh dont say anything lol)...we had a lovely lunch the other day and then I held my Daughters bags while she tried on just about everything she could get her hands on in a vintage clothes shop, of course I ended up buying her a jacket that looked like it had been made for her, its a shame the prices weren't vintage lol...but it looked so stunning on her it was worth every penny and I think shes all set to head of to Amsterdam on Monday ...my lovely Dad is home on Sunday but then hes straight off for a week in England, international jet setter at 79 not bad eh?...right now onto my card for today which is using this stunning Cerridwen image from Saturated Canary...isn't she beautiful...there's three stamps on this card though, the two butterflies are from the Kaisercraft Clear Stamps - Tigerlilly this is just two of the butterflies from this stunning set, I stamped the butterflies on some of the Kaisercraft - The Lake House 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad papers which I also used for the card...another amazing Kaisercraft paper pads, I bought the stamp set and pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts I finished with some lush pink ribbon and punched lace...the sketch is a past sketch from Mojo Monday...I'm entering this for the Cute Card Thursday challenge, The Ribbon Girl blog challenge, Saturated Canary Challenge and the Digital Tuesday challenge...well I'm off to finish my Daughter and her other half's washing as their washing machine has broken down, just in time to do all the washing they needed done for Amsterdam...hhhmmmmm funny that isn't it lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant fun one
