its here at last...


Good morning everyone I hope your having a good week despite the snow and bad weather...isn't March supposed to be the start of spring...well I guess that slipped by a week past Sunday lol...well its here at long last, my lovely Dads 80th Birthday, I wont show you his card today as I think he should see it first don't you...he and my Sister came back last evening and they had a fantastic time at the hotel, he said he felt like a king even if he was shattered, he nodded off in front of my fire bless him lol...I just hope he likes our presents as much (ssssshhhhhhh saying nothing yet just in case of prying eyes lol)...I cant wait to see him today for his massive birthday hug though and then out for coffee before I tell him about his first present...right now onto my card for today which is using another of the new Bags of Fashion stamps from Sugar Nellie...this one is the beautiful Chelsea coloured with distress inks and teamed up with some lush papers from the My Mind's Eye-Oliver 6x6 paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished my card with a stunning organza ribbon bow and a few flowers I bought ages ago from a craft sale at The Works...I love this fab Charisma Cardz challenge sketch don't you?...I love to mix shapes like this and think I have an OCD thingy for symmetry lol...I'm also entering this for the Artistic Inspirations Challenge and the Addicted To Stamps Challenge too...I'm off to ring my Dad to make arrangements for today...isn't it strange how much Mum's love other people's birthday's except their own lol...whatever your up to today I hope you have a brilliant one with a little added sunshine
