Cows are girls too...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend, I hope so...I'm feeling a bit better today...I slept all the morning away yesterday, I think you were all right about sleep being the best treatment, I felt a little better when I got up so we went out for a little walk around the shops and ended up buying a new 'us' dinner set, teacups and saucers, teapot, creamer and sugar bow, casseroles well just about everything actually, then poor Phil cleaned everything else out and stacked it all up to take to the charity shop...we are now the proud owners of a complete dinner set for 8 picked by us...mind when I got back I was shattered and had to have another snooze...you will be pleased to know my lovely Dad got to Sicily ok and is well and enjoying the sunshine in their huge villa, isn't he the lucky one...now I'm feeling a bit better I AM going to do some crafting today, well that's the plan anyway but you know what plans are like lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge, this month the theme was chosen by our lovely Maria Theresa and she chose the fab one of Girls, Girls, Girls...now remember cows are girls too lol, my card is using this stunning Magnolia Summer Memories - Little Miss MuuMuu stamp, how cute is she and fantastic to colour, I coloured her with distress inks, the lush papers are from the Bazzill Basics 6x6" Multipack - Vintage Marketplace paper pack, I love this amazing pack so colourful and fantastic weight of paper too great to distress, I finished with some pink seam binding and a beautiful flower from the Prima Flowers Primmers - White Cotton pack...I had to use some of my favourite Wooden Ornaments - Alphabet letters for my Moo sentiment...I'm entering this for the Lets Ink It Up Challenge, The Ribbon Girl challenge and Allsorts Challenge too...right I'm off for a lock in the craft room and I'm not coming out until I have created at least three cards...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and if you get the time pop on over to Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge and see the amazing makes from our fab DT
