talk to the bear cause the face aint listening...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well, have any of you anything exciting planned for this long weekend, any parties or anything?...we are heading to Donegal on Saturday morning to visit one of our favourite places, Glenveagh National Park and instead of driving there and back we have decided to have a romantic break in a hotel in Letterkenny for a few days...I'm looking forward to it, Glenveagh is a stunning place it has such spectacular scenery and the gardens are stunning at this time of year...plus I got a real bargain break...oooohhhdon't you just love getting a bargain...I went for a little mooch in Town yesterday and found nothing but was quite sad that almost all of my favourite clothes shops have close over the last year and now two more stores have close, a sign of the times I guess but its very sad that our Town centres are going downhill so fast isn't it...I got my hair cut then out with Dad to get him some shopping for while we are away, back home and I even managed to get some crafting time before dinner...I love busy days like that don't you...right now onto my card for today...I love love love this sweetie from Mo's Digital Pencil, look at that face its so cute and funny isn't it, shes called Talk to the Bear and I coloured her with distress ink, these amazingly stunning papers are from the Bazzill Basics 6x6" Multipack - Vintage Marketplace pack I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts gorgeous isn't it and they are those fabric feel type of papers too, do you know what I mean sorta cotton like and rip brilliantly...I used some lush pink seam binding and a few cut out roses from the papers to finish...the fab sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge too...I'm off to make a couple of cards for while I'm away so you have something to look at when you come by and then sort out something to wear when we go out to dinner (I need a lot of luck with that job lol)...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and if anyone gets at you just tell them to 'talk to the bear' lol
