magical...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well...can someone please switch that big tap in the sky off it seems to be stuck on sprinkler setting, it has been raining here for the last 24 hours and everything is very soggy...ok now enough is enough lol...hands up everyone who thought we would find sunglasses for my Dad...nope you were wrong and over coffee came to the conclusion it would be easier for him to get what he wants in Dublin Airport...well that was my excuse not to go to anymore shops anyway lol...I did get his Euro for him though and a few more bits and pieces, he is so looking forward to the wedding in Sicily and I so wish I was going too, but there isn't the space so I will just have to settle for phone photos of the day and sitting here in the soggy rain...do you all feel sorry for me lol...right now onto my card for today, how stunning is this beautiful Mermaid Lola from Make it Crafty, she is amazing to colour too...I used my usual distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Fairy Belle pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I love this pad, the soft muted colours and patterns go with so many images...I added a beautifully soft grey organza ribbon and bow, pretty little gems, a crown charm and a stick on sentiment from my stash...I cant remember where the sketch is from (my brain is waterlogged lol) but I'm entering it for the Cute Card Thursday, Simon Says Stamp challenge and the Paper Crafting Journey challenge too...I'm all by myself for the next two days as my lovely Phil is away camping so he can do some marshaling at the races, so two days of crafting, crafting and er maybe just a bit of crafting I think...I'm looking forward to trying out some new things I have wanted too for a while...bliss...whatever your up to today have a fabulous one and I hope its a dry one too

Hi Mina. Your card is stunning. The image is so beautiful and I love all the sparkle on her tail. Those papers really are yummy, think I may have to invest in some - lucky I have some birthday money left to spend.(it's going fast though!!)
Hope the weather dries up for you today!!
