Good morning everyone did you all have a lovely Sunday...did you notice I was missing? ISP is playing silly tricks connection was in and out on Saturday then went off Saturday night and only came back about 8pm last night...I had posts to do too aaaaaarrrrrgggggghhhhhhh why does things like that always happen when you need to get things it sods law do you think...anyway I'm calm now lol...we didn't do anything yesterday at all, the heavens opened and it didn't stop pouring until last night I was expecting an ark or two floating up the street at any second lol...but at least we don't have it as bad as some places in the mainland and the USA, I watched an amazing time lapse video last night on Facebook of a snow storm it was like something out of a movie as the snow covered everything including the window it was being filmed from...really scary...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge, so everything I used except the ribbon came from Bunny Zoe's Crafts of course...this month the challenge is Flowers & Pearls...I couldn't resist buying this stunning stamp set from Kaisercraft when I saw it...this one is called Kaisercraft Clear Stamps - Periwinkle, another stunning set from them...I coloured it with my usual distress inks and teamed it up with one of their stunning paper pads, these papers are from the Kaisercraft - Pickled Pear 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad...stunning colours aren't they...I finished with a few strips of pearls, a mix of 3mm and 4mm mixed pearl sets and a bias binding bow...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Papertake Weekly Challenge and the Delightful Challenge...I will have to show you the card I had for yesterday another day, well ISP willing that is...I'm going to spend today sheltering from the rain and crafting I think, I fancy a bit of crafting therapy...we all know those sort of day don't we...the kind of days when you need to create something, so fingers crossed my mojo stays intact for it lol...whatever your up to today if you have time pop on over to the Bunny Zoe's Crafts blog to see what the rest of our fabulous DT came up with...have a good dry one everyone
