I need to get one of these...

Good morning everyone I hope your having a fab bank holiday...I'm still not here but here in the virtual sense again, thank goodness for scheduling...we should be heading off into the Donegal mountains on a picnic today, weather permitting as the tops of the mountains have been know to have all four seasons in an hour let alone a day, so fingers crossed we don't need our thermals and hot water bottles for the picnic lol...I once went for a drive with my Sister and her family who were visiting from England and we decided to take the kids to an ice cream factory and had to go across two mountain tops to get there...it was a beautiful spring day when we lefts as we crossed the first mountain there was thick thick fog and we almost killed two sheep, coming down the other side there was hail, across the top of the next one was snow, down the other side rain then bright warm sunshine...see what I mean lol...my Sister was gobsmacked and spent the whole time shaking her in disbelief...right now onto my card for today which is my version of all the Red, White and Blue themes going around and is using this amazing King for the Day from Mo's Digital pencil, well who else would it be by look at that expression...I coloured him with distress inks and paper pieced his amazing chair (I so need to get one of these for Phil, I want to see his face do that lol)...the fab paper is from K & Co's classic collection and I used some red and white ribbons a couple of buttons and a tag from my stash to finish...the lush sketch is from the My Time Made Easy challenge and I'm also entering it for the Delightful sketches challenge and the Moving along with the Times challenge too...I will be back in real time on Wednesday but have a post tomorrow for you to see too...whatever your up to today enjoy the holiday
