all you need is....


Good morning everyone, whats going on we had more wall to wall sunshine yesterday and our deck being the little suntrap that it is was actually warm enough to sit and enjoy it, even if it was only on the way back from the bin and for a few minuets but I still cant believe I was sitting out in the sunshine, what next flowers peeping their heads out too soon to be able to resist the snow that will probably arrive next week...don't do it flowers lol...our family dinner was fabulous last night we had Phil's homemade Ham & Egg pies, salad, garlic and shallot roasted potatoes and fresh blackberry's, blueberries and strawberry's with greek yogurt to finish and it was just as yummy as it sounds too...I love it when we all eat together it reminds me of when our Daughter lived at home even if it was many many moons ago...we enjoyed it so much we tried to get them to come for dinner tomorrow night but of course they weren't having any of it lol...right now onto my card for today and its an old favourite Sugar Nellie stamp I used...shes by Diane Duba and is called Believe...I used my usual distress inks for colouring and some lush papers from the Bazzill Basics 6x6" Multipack - Antique Aged Papers, I love this lush pack the papers are really like old aged paper...I finished with some large black letters, a cream bow and a splash of red to match her lips with the gorgeous Red Ruffle Rose, the papers and rose are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop Sketches Challenge and also entering this for the Crafting By Designs Challenge and the Dream Valley Challenge too...I'm not sure what I'm up to today but I live in hope of a bit more sitting in the sun...whatever your doing have a great one
