drip, drip, drip...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and have a fabulous weekend planned...ok now enough is enough, whoever is in charge of the great tap in the sky we have had enough turn the sprinkler off or I will need to get a lot of wood and nails to build a crafters ark...is it ever going to stop?????...I hope its not too bad where you are and your all safe...our beautiful Daughter is off to a fancy dress party tonight but I managed to wriggle out of making her costume this time at least, I didnt want a last second dash around like for the ringmaster outfit (do you remember that)m shes going to a wild west themed party as a saloon girl and wow does she look amazing in her costume...oh how I wish I could look that good but then again she has some of her Mothers genes lol...are you up to anything exciting this weekend? oh go on tell me we have nothing planned at all and I love a little nosey lol...right now onto my card for today how gorgeous is this little cutie from Mo's Digital Pencil shes called Carolina and I think she is so beautiful and those carrots are brilliant arent they...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with some gorgeous papers from the My Mind's Eye - Honey Cake 6x6 Pad, lush arent they and I finished with some fabulous green seam binding, a sentiment and a beautiful Prima flower from the Prima Flowers Charlotte - Snow, I love this set...the fab sketch is from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and Im also entering it for the Totally Papercrafts challenge and the Chocolate, Coffee & Cards challenge too...Im off to get the war paint on just in case we decide to do something exciting or unexpected, well you never know do you...whatever your up to today I hope you stay dry and warm

Gorgeous card! I have this DP, and would never have thought to use it like that. Love your colouring with the DI, I need to give that a try too. Do hope your weather improves, ours is to be very hot....where's the happy medium? My hubby's not too well, but we are hoping to get out a bit with family. Hope you get out a bit too.

Hello!

I love this card - so perfect! Wish that I could trade you some of this heat and sunshine (high 90's again in the week ahead is the forecast) for some rain! We need the rain so badly - everything is turning brown! Wishing you a happy weekend!
