just a few flowers...


Good morning everyone are you doing anything exciting today?...my lovely Sister and her wonderful family are coming for a visit with my Dad to help celebrate his Birthday...I cant wait to see them, we don't see each other as often as we should do, things always seem to get in the way don't they...the appointment at the audiologists went excellent yesterday and as expected her charmed her to bits...he has lost a lot of top and bottom range from his hearing and needs two hearing aids...but good thing is they will make life so much easier for him and they are tiny so very discreet which is what he wanted and even better they will be fitted in two weeks time how excellent is that...I cant wait to see his face when he can hear again...brilliant start to his Birthday celebrations isn't it...right now onto my card for today which is using another of the fabulous Janey's Digi Designs, this is the beautiful Freesia image...these are my all time favourite flowers I love the smell of them and they are like an instant smile for me too...I coloured them very softly with my distress inks and teamed them up with some loose sheets from one of my Prima pads I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts (there's a store wide sale on at Bunny Zoe's atm, 10% off so click on the link at the bottom to go straight there)...in fact they might be from two of them as there is always a few loose sheets in my pad drawers...I finished with some ribbon and a lush black satin bow...I haven't a clue where the fab sketch is from but if one of you know then let me know so I can credit them with it...I am entering this for the Crafting for all Seasons Challenge, Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge and the Ribbon Girl challenge too...I'm off to get the old war paint on to head out for lunch with Phil, then an eye appointment for my Dad and then the arrival of my Sister...oooohhhhhh a busy day ahead I think lol...whatever your up to today I hope its a brilliant one for you all

Freesias are my favourite flower, too. When I was a student, I would buy them quite often in yellow or cream, since they were quite cheap, they lasted long, took up little space and smelled wonderful. I also had them in my bridal bouquet almost 12 years ago, but this time they were of a deep fuchsia pink shade.
Have a wonderful weekend & celebration.
