theres nothing like new boots...


Good morning everyone how you all doing...well I hope and enjoying your week...another day of wall to wall sunshine yesterday in fact it was so sunny I could only sit in my craftroom for about 30 minuets until I was so hot I had to go downstairs for a drink lol...now I never thought that would happen, of course I had to pick the sunniest room because of the wonderful light but didn't consider how hot it would get with the sun streaming in well duh lol...its a British disease isn't it, complaining about being too cold in Winter and too hot when the sun shines...its not usually me though, I love Summer and would dearly love to live somewhere warm all year round, but it always makes me chuckle when your standing in a queue in the supermarket in June and someone is moaning about how warm it is and I think 'give it a day or two and they will be complaining about the rain' lol...gotta love em...right now my card for today and how wonderful it would be to see a fairy get some new leaf boots wouldn't it...I can just imagine this little beauty sitting in a garden doing them up cant you...shes from Crafts and Me and is drawn by Sue Rundle-Hughes, isn't she just beautiful and shes fabulous to colour too...shes called The New Boots and I used my usual distress inks to colour her...the lush papers I used are from the Kaisercraft-The Lakehouse paper pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts many moons ago so is out of stock Im afraid but there are loads of brand new ones on my 'to buy' list, I finished with a fabulous piece of lace, some two tone ribbon and a Prima flower from my stash...I cant remember where the sketch is from but Im entering this for the Card Mania Challenge, Bearly-Mine Challenge and the City Crafter Challenge too...I haven't a clue what I'm up to today, might be a bit of crafting or even mooching or even shopping...you never know...whatever your up to today I hope wherever you are the sun shines on you even if its just for a little while
