an apple a day....

Good morning everyone, well how was your start to the week, good I hope...thank you all so so much for your good wishes yesterday for our new home, I can not wait to share it all with you, believe me you will go through every little mishap, mistake and finished moment with us even if you don't want to lol...I will get round to you all tonight to thank you all personally, your such a brilliant set of crafters...I'm quickly gathering up a folder with ideas and I would love to put a few to you all if you don't think it would be pain or you would get bored with them, I think everyone needs someone to bounce ideas off don't you, poor Phil is the loveliest man on the planet but he seriously cannot get excited about paint, wallpaper, fabrics etc and when I ask him what he thinks of something I usually get the male no...you know the one the shrug of the shoulders and totally bewildered look lol...my gorgeous Daughter is at the age that shes interested but only if shes doing it herself if you know what I mean...so I need some fellow crafters to bounce some ideas off, are you game...does anyone have any experience of mood boards, you know those things the designers pull out casually as if it hadn't taken them hours to make up, I wonder if they work or get you even more confused...right now onto my card for today which is using the stunning Mackenzie from Sugar Nellie, I love her cute little apples don't you and they are perfect in red...I coloured her with distress inks and used this gorgeous checked paper from Kars for the colour combo, a different way to use red, white and blue isn't it...I finished with some red card to edge the shapes, a big red organza bow and a Prima sparkly flower...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Paper Shelter challenge and Scrappy Frogs Challenge ...I'm having a crafting day today I need to get well ahead so I have some time to get started on boxes, I looked at my craft room yesterday and so wished I had a magic wand to just transport it all...oh well I guess its a good excuse for a sort out isnt it...whatever your doing today I hope its fun
