I met myself...

Good morning everyone before anything else I want to say massive apologies to you all for not visiting in a while, house hunting and invitations seem to have taken over my every spare hour, so by the time I sit down at night I'm shattered, in fact Im sure I met myself in the hall yesterday lol...I promise as soon as the invitations (this week defo) I will be visiting you all, I have so missed my hopping around your fabulous blogs...Phil came home a bit early today and he made me put the invitations aside and go out for a few hours, nowhere special just a little mooch around a shop and out for a loaf and milk but at least it was out and we had a giggle and a coffee then it was back home where I got back to the invitations while my wee darling made dinner, and very yummy it was too, sausage, mash, green beans and onion gravy, I might not tell him when I'm finished the invites if he cooks like that for me when I'm busy lol...anyway my card for today is using this sweet Sugar Nellie Home Grown Birthday Princess isn't she a cutie, I coloured her with distress inks and used this stunning double sided paper from SEI Claire range called Sincere, dont you think this is a really pretty colour combo...I finished with some grey organza ribbon and a few gold tinted Prima flowers...the fab sketch is from the Willow Sketchie challenge and I'm also entering it for the That Craft Place challenge and Lets Ink it up challenge...Im doing some catch up on DT work today then a bit of cooking I think, and you never know I might do a bit of surfing around your blogs, I need an infusion of your inspiration...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one
