Good morning everyone did you all have a fabulous weekend...we headed for Ikea yesterday, our beautiful Daughter and her other half needed to go and her car is still broken down so we decided we would make the sacrifice to take them (yeah right lol)...of course we didn't need anything at all and still managed to spend more than they did...£50 later and some massive bargains including a picture frame and poster to go in it...the picture frame is huge and was a bargain £7.50 but the poster was £7 reduced to £3.99...but when we got to the till he charged us £3.99 and then it was discounted £3.99 so it was free????...I asked him if that was right he says that's what it scanned so it must be...well who am I to argue?....ooooohhhhh I do love a bargain don't you, but that's ridiculous lol...after that we went and picked up our new Christmas tree for the kitchen but as we didn't get home until after 7pm we still don't have them up and I also bought new floaty curtains for the kitchen and would like to get them up first so maybe today but as Phil has the day off for Christmas shopping I don't hold out much hope...oh and we are getting my Christmas present today too, I have my eye on a pair of boots so Im hoping they have them in stock in our closest Clarks store or it means another trip to Belfast...such a shame lol...right now onto my card for today how lush is this fantastic stamp from Crafts and Me...its by the super talented Robin Pushay and is called Tree Top Blessings...such a beautiful Christmas image isn't it...I coloured her with distress inks and glittered just about everything I could think of...the star, her wings and the flames on the candles...the amazing papers are from Graphic45's Christmas Emporium Collection and is called Tis The Season...I finished my card with a gorgeously glittery Noel sentiment (this is a decoration I bought in the sales last year) and some pearls...I'm entering it for the Lady Anne's Challenge, Paperplay Challenge and the Totally Gorjuss challenge too...right I'm off to get the war paint on, a girl cant go boot shopping without her lippy can she girls...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

What a beautiful card Mina...love the image & of course it is colored to perfection! Would you believe I have never been inside an Ikea? The largest Ikea in Canada has just opened last Thurs. in Winnipeg so in my next trip into the big city I will check it out. I have heard so much about how wonderful it is...hope I'm not disappointed! Maybe I'll get as great a bargain as you did!
