I'm bbbbbaaaacccckkkk.....


Good morning everyone and yes at last I'm back, did you miss me, bet you never even noticed lol...we have had a fab weekend...Friday afternoon my lovely Dad spent outrageously flirting with his audiologist while she switched his hearing aids up another notch...he can almost hear a pun drop now and there's no chance of whispering behind his back now lol then Friday night was a surprise dinner party in a local hotel for my Aunt and Uncle for their 50th wedding anniversary...how amazing is that 50 years, you should have seen their faces when they walked in, it was a total surprise and a lot of tears flowed from everyone...it was fantastic catching up with all the family and my Dad, Sister, her husband and Phil were there too...our Daughter and her other half were meant to be there but she was still away but she was gutted she couldn't be there and it would have been a chance for her other half to meet everyone who only get together at occasions like this...we had a shopping, lunch kinda day on Saturday then Sunday was a family lunch, our beautiful Daughter came home for a day and a half and was full of excitement and brimming over with all the things she had been doing and how much she is loving it to bits...I'm so pleased for her and was so full of pride when she told us how well she is doing I thought I would cry at one stage...soppy bugger I am lol...phew that was a lot of info, see what happens when your broken down for a few days lol...right now onto my card for today...now who else could draw this stunning image but Mo from Mo's Digital Pencil...this is the fabulous Baby Fairy Bee, she is just so so cute in her bee outfit isn't she...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from one of my new buys from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, they are from the Kaisercraft - Remember Me 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad, now you all know my passion for paper and I love Kaisercraft pads but this one is something special, some are flocked some are glossed, its just a shame they don't show up more in the photos...you will be seeing a lot more of this pad as its so lush I wont be able to resist using it...I finished my card with some Thickers letter stickers and loads of punched butterflies...the fab sketch is from the Crafty Catz Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge and the Joanna Sheen Challenge too...it will be a busy busy busy week this week as we are away for a week from Saturday for the holiday for my Dads Birthday present, so packing, doing posts doing DT work etc, I will probably pass myself in the hall a few times I'm sure...have a fabulous day and I hope its a bit more relaxing then mine
