cute as a button...


Good morning everyone well this is my last live post for a week we are off on our holiday in the morning...but as usual because I'm a bit obsessive I will be posting all week thanks to technology...don't you just love technology...we had to have a quick visit to the shops yesterday to pick up some things you just cant go on holiday without...you know those essentials like a new nail varnish, hairspray etc lol and of course we had time for some coffee...while we were sitting having a coffee I spotted a middle aged man on the next table scratching off a scratch card, of course I couldn't help a sneaky look...I almost fainted, he had six £10 scratch cards, 5 scratched and the one he was scratching away at...then he ripped them all up went away and came back with another 4...omg how can anyone afford to waste £100 on scratch cards...I must admit although of course its his money and he can do what he wants with it, it made me feel sick at the thought of how much he was spending on them...am I the only one that thinks that man has a real serious problem...my lovely Dad was flabbergasted and him sitting open mouthed trying not to look at him was a little funny though lol...right now onto my card for today...how gorgeous is this digi from Sugar Nellie, shes from the Simply Sassy range at Funky Kits and is called Tiffany...I coloured her with distress inks and used more of these amazing papers from the Kaisercraft - Needle & Thread 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the sentiment tag is from the same pad and the bow was made with Organza Ribbon - Pink (25mm Wide), I love this ribbon so much...do you like the little spotty buttons?, well they are actually made using a punch and papers...I had forgotten all about this punch, I bought it years ago and it was at the bottom of my punch box...the fab sketch is from the Feeling Sketchy Challenge (the punch is the button punch) and I'm also entering it for the Inky Impressions Challenge and the Saturated Canary Challenge too...right I'm off to do my packing...don't forget to pop back while I'm away, oh and I will be having some candy too you don't want to miss that do you...have a fantastic week while I'm away and whatever your doing have fun

What a dreadful waste of money, we occasionally buy a £2 scratch card and if we don't win that's it. Couldn't possibly spend anymore than that. Your card is so pretty, must get this girly out again, love her, have her in rubber. Have a wonderful holiday x
