bling, bling, bling...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and having a brilliant week...well wwwwoooohhhoooooooI'm finished the invitations at long last (that goodness for that I hear you all cry maybe now she'll stop moaning about it lol), 75 of them all done dusted and ready for parcelling to reach my Niece in loads of time for her end of July deadline...all I need to do now is 60 order of service and menus but they don't have to be thought about for a few months yet phew...we went out to breakfast yesterday with our gorgeous Daughter and then went for a walk in town, now there's this fabulous little jewellery shop, you know one of those places you just cant resist looking at the diamonds in the window, come on we've all done it...so while Phil's getting the ticket for the car park I always nip over to drool at them, there's this beautiful solitaire I have had my eye on for ages, it has my name written all over it...so I'm standing with a pool of drool at my feet and Phil comes over 'Are you still drooling over that ring'...err yeah lol...ok says Phil come on, he only went inside and bought it for me...I know! I was gobsmacked too, not gobsmacked enough to say no though lol...I will take a photo and show you my new bling, its gorgeous...I will have to walk round with my hand on my face so people notice now lol...and for those people who asked no I'm not lending him out lol...right enough waffling onto my card for today which is using this fantastic little sailor boy, isn't he adorable...of course only Mo Manning can draw that much expression into an image...this little cutie is one of the set called Sailor Boys, another amazing value set from Mo's Digital Pencil...I coloured this cutie with distress inks, had to colour it twice though, the demon red struck, it gets everywhere doesn't it...the stunning papers are from one of the new ones I bought at Bunny Zoe's crafts, the Graphic 45 8x8 Paper Pad - Little Darlings pad, its a stunningly gorgeous pad...I finished my card with a Little Darling banner cut from one of the papers and a red gingham ribbon to bring out the red in the image...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop challenge and Im also entering it for the Creative Inspirations challenge (I used Ribbon, Blue & polka dots from the bingo)...We are having a big family dinner tonight so we have to go shopping for the gubbins to make it today...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
