Dream...


Good morning everyone did you all have a wonderful weekend?...we had the quietest of days yesterday and Phil even enjoyed painting and repairing some garden furniture while I did a bit of research for my lovely Dads break away...I forgot to tell you where we are going didn't I...well we are going to a lovely little cottage at the foot of a mountain and on the edge of a loch in County Mayo...its only just over 100 miles from where we live but we didn't want to make my Dad sit for too long travelling, it can make you kinda stiff sitting in a car so we plan to stop a couple of times on the way down too...I have a list of things to see and do, I thought it would be quite hard to find loads to do with someone in a wheelchair (hes fine walking with crutches but not long distance or for a long time) but it was easy most places are set up for the disabled now aren't they...thank goodness...so plans made, cottage booked and paid for all systems go...it doesn't seem a lot to get him for his 80th but we will do our best to make it an unforgettable trip for him...right now onto my card for today...I fell in love with this Sassy Cheryl cutie when I saw her and had to buy her...shes called A No.2 Pencil & a dream...fab isn't she, I love how the pencil line trails to the message...I coloured her with distress inks and used some of the stunning Kaisercraft - Pickled Pear 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts for my card...I love the muted colours in this pad, all the embellishments like the clock and the scalloped strip under the ribbon are from the same pad too...oh btw I just announced the new Guest DT members on the Bunny Zoe's Crafts blog too...I finished with a lush organza ribbon and a few pins...the fab sketch is from the Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge (turned on its side though) and I'm also entering it for the Marianne's Design Divas challenge and the Sassy Cheryl's digi challenge too...we are off out today as Phil is off work for St Patrick's Day...I haven't a clue where we are going or what we will do but we are going out anyway...see now that's organised lol...whatever your up to today I hope its a good one for you

Hi Mina. I just popped over to see what I have been missing the last couple of weeks. Life getting in the way of blogging. LOL
