Lilac angels rule...


Good morning everyone do you have anything exciting planned for today?...we had loads of plans, we were heading to Belfast, shopping, lunch, a visit to Ikea a look at the Christmas light and a visit with my Sister but it all went out the window because Phil got called into work and it looks like he will be there most of the day...oh well plans are meant to be broken aren't they and I don't get annoyed about things that cant be helped...life's too short...we had a lovely night at the light switch on last night but boy oh boy was it cold, I thought at one stage that my nose had dropped off and I'm sure I heard the thud when it hit the pavement lol...the children in the procession to the tree were wonderful, each dressed in such beautiful colourful sparkly costumes...and Santa of course but instead of reindeer he had two massive shire horses...it was lovely to watch and really magical, but would you believe I forgot my camera, gutted... right now onto my card for today...doesn't this little darling in lilac and blue just rule...shes adorable...she is of course a Saturated Canary image and I coloured her with distress inks and of course followed the crafting rule that wings have to be glittered...well how could I resist...shes called Christmas Angel and doesn't she go perfectly with these lush papers from the Echo Park - Winter Wishes pad although this fab pad is a Christmas one I think the colours are so pretty they would work brilliantly any time of the year and I love pads you can use anytime and not just for an occasion don't you, this pad is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...we paper crafters have to be a bit thrifty don't we...I finished my card with some lush lilac ribbon from my stash and a sentiment cut from the same pad...the fab sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge and I'm also entering it for the Digital Tuesday Challenge and the Charisma Cardz challenge too...so now all our plans for today are out the window I haven't a clue what I'm up to today...it might just be a quiet sorting Christmas decorations day ready for tonight's great 'great putting up trees challenge' night tonight...if I get a chance to take any I will post some photos of our trees tomorrow...if not it will be next week...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and I hope all your plans go right
