am I dreaming...


Good morning everyone...is it a bird, is it a plane...no I do believe its the sun...we had wall to wall sun shine yesterday and the temperature actually sneaked into double figures (only just mind lol)...I spend a lovely afternoon meant to be crafting but actually sitting in my office chair soaking up the sun shining through the window dreaming of summer days and the smell of flowers...isn't it strange how obsessed we British are with the weather...do you think its because our weather is so changeable or maybe its just we like to have something to moan about lol...anyway I did manage a little bit of a play yesterday and managed some colouring too...with that and the sun I really enjoyed my crafting afternoon...right now for the card I did make yesterday...how stunning is this Funky Kits Digi...I love these Sugar Nellie Simply Adorable's don't you and never get tired of colouring them...this is the beautiful Melissa, I think she has a real ethereal feel to her (oooohhhh big word for this early isnt it lol)...shes so beautifully soft isn't she...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and used some papers from the stunning Prima Tea Thyme paper pad I got ages ago from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the softness of the colours really suit her don't you think...I finished with a pink seam binding bow and a large pink flower...the lush sketch is from the Tuesday morning Sketches Challenge and I'm also entering it for the brand new A Little Bit Crafty Challenge and the Party Time Tuesday Challenge too...I think I might either head into town today or spend another 'crafting' day today...I will hopefully actually get a lot more crafting done today though...are craft rooms the best place to craft do you think, isn't there a lot of distractions crammed into one place and way to much to play with lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and I hope you manage to get some sun on you wherever you are
