butterflies & bunting...


Good morning everyone did you all have a fabulous weekend...ours was kinda quiet but at least the sun came out yesterday, its amazing what a bit of sun does to people isn't it...we went for a little mooch around town and even though it was still freezing cold I found myself sitting in the sunshine with my face turned upwards, its lovely to feel the sun on your face isn't it...of course the winter blues aren't helped much when you return home to your neighbours asking if you will keep an eye on their house while they are off to Tenerife for two weeks is it lol...I so wish I was going with them, oooohhhhh for two weeks in permanent sunshine sitting around a lush pool sitting daft drinks with even dafter umbrellas in them...mind I would have to go alone as poor Phil doesn't even get a full day without either phone calls from work or being called in, he even had to go in for three hours yesterday evening too so dinner with our beautiful Daughter and her other half had to be postponed until tonight...it cant be helped though and we know we are lucky him having a job after our panic last year...never mind we live in hope of somewhere warmer not too far down the line...theres nowt like hope is there lol...right now onto my card for today and how spring/summery are these stunning papers and image...everything on today's card is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...this cute little girl is from the new Crafter's Companion collection....isn't she a real sweetie?...the stamp is called Angelica and Friends - Grace and the amazingly lush papers I used are from one of the new Prima paper pads...these are from the stunning Divine Pad, I cut some of the bunting and the ruler from another to finish and added some of the brand new Prima Butterflies - Divine they were a perfect finish and I didn't think it needed anything else do you?...the fab sketch is from the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Joanna Sheen Challenge and the Totally Papercrafts challenge too...I'm having a crafting day today, I have loads to do and feel the need to cut things out lol...whatever your up to today I hope wherever you are you get to enjoy some sunshine

Well...I did sit outside in the sun on Saturday. With temperatures of 20-22 °C during the daytime you won't hear me complaining, esp. since February last year was extramely cold and wet (from a Greek perspective, that is). Too bad I had to stay in yesterday to get some work done. Then again, I'm happy I have nothing to complain about work and the financial benifits this brings.
That image is really cute indeed and you've coloured her beautifully, as always.
