sssssshhhhhhhh its a secret...

Good morning everyone...hands up who's been busting to know what I was up to yesterday? ...well its my little Sisters 40th Birthday on Monday and for the last few months her lovely Husband has been arranging for all the woman in the family (including my Sister and two of her grown Children from England and me and my beautiful Daughter) to all get together for a girlie night...so the plan is that we all arrive at her house in Belfast and get ready together (omg her poor bathroom lol) then out for a meal and to a club then all back for a sleepover...sort of a grown up PJ party except with wine lol...well that's the plan and because I'm not here I will let you know what we all got up to in tomorrows post as I will be back late tonight....oooooohhhhh isn't it a brill idea, I think we should make it a yearly thing don't you....right now enough girlie screaming and excitement from me onto my card for today which is using this amazing Mo's Digital Pencil image...I love love love this image its the look on their faces I think, only Mo can draw those expressions don't you think...these two are called Tia and Friend ...I coloured them with my usual distress inks and teamed them up with these amazing papers from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Doodle Deux I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts but I think its sold out atm...I love the colours in this pad they are so unusual but really work well together...I finished with a red knotted ribbon and a few buttons...I haven't a clue where the sketch is from as my sketches are getting all mixed up with the upheaval here but its a fab one anyway...I'm entering it for the Twisted Tuesday Challenge,Party Time Tuesday challenge and the Truly Madly Crafty Challenge too....right that me for today I'm hopefully having fun according to plan...whatever your up to today I hope you have a fantastic time
