splish splash...dont get water in your cocktail...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fabulously wonderful weekend...my sister and her family, Dad and our beautiful Daughter and her other half were all down for dinner on Saturday night, I made pies then we had chip shop chips with them for dinner and there was loads of laughter, eating, giggling and chat...everyone said how much they loved the warm welcoming feel of our house and how much at home they felt, so we must be doing something right mustn't we lol...the best day was yesterday though all the girls (including my fantastic 4 year old Niece who is definitely a diva in the making) had a girlie shopping trip to town to see if we could get our outfits for the wedding in October...and...we did, my Daughter bought a skin tight knee length 50's style dress, its stunning and of course it help having a size 8 figure she is going to wear it with leather gloves, clutch bag high heels and a fascinator, Sis couldn't decide on what to get so bought 3 dresses and she will chose later and take the others back (I hope she chooses the blue one its stunning on her and us great with her colouring...beautiful) and I bought a gorgeous jacket in a kind of brocade pattern in soft grey and black to wear with a John Rocha dress I bought ages ago...so a really successful trip and I loved being out with them all too...of course the little un had to have her lip gloss on and buy some girlie bits and pieces...she is so a girlie girl and so so adorable...right now enough waffle Mina onto to today's card, how perfect is the fantastic Gloria By the Pool by Mo's Digital Pencil...now how on earth did she get a photo of me to copy lol, yeah right, I wish I looked that good in a swimsuit...I coloured her with distress inks and used these lush Bo Bunny Back to Basics Smoochable words papers...I wont be entering any challenge for the next two weeks as I'm am only here virtually after today...but all the sketches except a couple I made up are from Mojo Monday...I finished my card with some pretty buttons...I'm off to pack today so wish me luck I don't forget something vital...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and wherever you are I hope you get a bit of Gloria's weather
