consider it hexed...

Good morning everyone are you all well?...thank goodness Phil got home earlier than we thought so of we popped out for lunch then up to the craft shop for the wedding ribbon and you will never guess what...I only bought the ribbon...ok now don't all faint at once lol...mind I had just received a parcel of goodies I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts so didn't really need anything, you will be seeing some of those new goodies next week...cant wait to get my scissors cutting into some of the papers I bought...and you will not believe it but it rained all day, yes I know shock horror how unusual is that lol...my card for today is me putting a hex on the rain, its been hexed to go away and bring the sun...let me know if it works you never know I could rent myself out for all sorts of hexing lol...I used this beautiful little boy from Mo's digital pencil, its from her new Summer Kids collection and this little fella is the Straight Haired Boy version...of course I didn't just get him and you will see another one soon...they so remind me of holiday with our beautiful Daughter, she travelled everywhere with us from she was 6 months old...she had a floppy eared dog soft toy who travelled everywhere with us and had its own little name and address tag, just in case, she never ever left it anywhere...I still have the torn and worn with love Sally in my memories box under my bed...do you have a memory box like that?...anyway back to my card, the amazingly colourful paper is from Echo Park's Summer Days collection called Quilt, perfect summery colours aren't they, I finished with some cheapo foam letters that were in pink but colour brilliantly and a selection of buttons to match the papers...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop challenge and I'm also entering it for the Card Crafters Circle challenge and the Crafty Calender Challenge...I have a lot of ribbon and lace cutting to do today so don't think we will be straying farm but then you never know do you...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and keep an eye on the sky in case my hex works lol

Beautiful sunny card Mina, love the image and colouring and fabulous papers..I have a memory box, and my daughters first ever baby frock was in there, and as she never had daughters herself,I put it on my big cream Teddy bear on my bed, so I can always see it..
