I so want that dress...


Good morning everyone are you having a fab weekend...anything nice planned?...we had loads of plans for this weekend we were going out to lunch then off to Belfast to the Christmas market opening then a visit with my Sister and her lovely family, all shot down in flames though as Phil's place have a massive audit starting on Monday and he has to work this weekend now...oh well it cant be helped can it so instead I'm off to a car boot sale with our beautiful Daughter and her other half instead...you never know what bargains you will pick up do you, I'm looking for some picture frames, different sizes and shapes, I have a feature for my hall wall in mind, I will show you if it works out...for the first time in a long long time I'm going to Phil's office works Christmas night out and I'm so so nervous, not about meeting everyone, I'm a friendly person I think and get on with most people, its what to wear...do I dress up because I'm always nervous I go overboard or do I go with trousers , high heeled boots and a nice top....aaaaarrrrgggghhhhh help...I asked Phil to ask some of the girls in the office what they were wearing but he refused saying he isn't going around asking everyone what they are wearing for it...I maintain they will know exactly why I'm asking don't you think so?...I can kinda see his point though, might come over just a tad creepy lol...now the dress this little beauty is wearing would be so wonderful to wear wouldn't it, so festive and feminine...although I don't have her legs lol...this is the beautiful Kraftin' Kimmie - Lola Lollipop and shes on sale for this weekend...all Kraftin' Kimmie and Magnolia stamps are a massive 20% off and there's a huge 15% off everything else across the whole store for this weekend at Bunny Zoe's Crafts so hop on over and pick up a massive bargain or two...I coloured Lola with distress inks and paper pieced her dress and bow with the same lush papers I used for the background and the cut out sentiment...they are from the Bazzill Basics 6x6" Multipack - Believe...I finished my card with some fabulous aged gingham ribbon, a piece of lace and a button to mimic her lollipop...the lush sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Lady Anne's Challenge and the Craft Punked challenge too...right I'm off to wrap up warm, I have a feeling I will need it at the car boot sale...whatever your up to today I hope you will be warm and cosy

Wear this dress! It's fab! I want it myself. I actually want the shoes too but I know I couldn't walk in them. It's a fab card, Mina. Love your Gingham ribbon. I think Phil should ask in the office. He doesn't have to ask everyone - just two ladies (preferably ones that are not 18!) Failing that, a good pair of black trousers and a fancy top has always worked for my dos (that reads doos by the way) in the past. Enjoy your now changed weekend, Mina. Hugs, Lesley

Wouldn't matter if you wore a burlap sack, Mina, they'll all love you anyway for who you are! Wear whatever you're comfortable in (other than your nightgown, lol) Bet there will be folks there in just about anything else! Enjoy yourself. Hope you had fun at the boot sale and found some goodies.
