can you believe it...


Good morning everyone are you all well and busy this weekend...anything nice planned?...the heavens opened here yesterday so Dad decided to stay in Belfast for a while longer, plus my poor Sister was rear ended the other day when she was out shopping (her car not her of course) and I think she needs a bit of help with running around as her car will need fixed...good thing is no one was hurt just a few bumps and bruises, it could have been a lot worse, and the man who hit her admitted fault so it will all go through insurance...thank goodness...so I spent the day online shopping and crafting and doing a bit of tidying then when Phil got home from work we had to head to the supermarket then, I'm sure its not something you look forward too when your just in from work but it cant be helped, well he could always stop eating I suppose (yeah right lol)...we are meant to be heading for a car boot sale this morning but it depend if this rain ever stops as its tipping down and a bit miserable for walking round a boot sale, so fingers crossed...right now onto my card for today and yes your eyes don't deceive you its not a Christmas card, can you believe it...instead I used this little cutie stamp from Sugar Nellie, shes called Artist Betty, isn't she cute and perfect for a card for any little budding artist in your family...I coloured this cutie with my usual distress inks and paper pieced her little beret...the stunning papers are from the My Mind's Eye - A Happy Heart 6x6 Pad, lush colours aren't they, I bought this pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished my card with some buttons, a distressed knotted ribbon and a distress flower...the fab sketch is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge and I'm also entering it for the Bearly Mine Challenge (new thing is the stamp) and the Inky Impressions challenge (my old thing is the pad which I bought about 6 months ago)...right that's me for today I'm off to get the war paint on and make a final decision as to what to wear for Phil Christmas dinner tonight...wish me luck I need it lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
