Life is a bowl full of cherries...


Good morning everyone do you feel in need of a weather forecast lol...yep still grey, windy, dull and tiddling down here so nothing changed here...but at least my card for today has a touch of summer about it...oh by the way thanks for all your replies about the dog in the boot incident...I have searched everywhere but can find nothing that say its illegal...shocking isn't it...it should be against the law I think, its seems a really shocking and cruel way to transport a puppy...I have watching the Chelsea flower show over the last few days and now have a massive and I mean huge list of plants I would love for the garden...now all I need is a nice friendly millionaire to come shopping with me...it would cost a small fortune for the pots to put them in never mind the plants...oh and the drooly garden furniture I have been looking at too...oh well a girl can dream cant she...I saw a chair in Next called an Apple pod and thought wow that would look amazing then I saw the price tag £1099...its here if you want to have a look and drool over it to...right enough of talking about things out of reach and onto my summery card for today...this is the gorgeous Kenny K's Troublemaker stamp from Whimsy Stamps...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these gorgeously coloured and fresh papers from the Carta Bella - Cool Summer 6x6 Paper Pad...I love this lush pad don't you...the tag sentiment is from the same pad too, I added some of the fab Section Smash Tape to the edges of the middle panel and finished with a yellow velvet knot and a few Christmas berries for cherries...see berries aren't just for Christmas lol everything except the ribbon and berries are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from the Feeling Sketchy Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Charisma Cardz Challenge and The Cutie Pie Challenge too...I'm making dinner for the family tonight for a get together for our beautiful Daughters birthday on Monday before my lovely Dad is of on his travels again tomorrow...hes off for a visit with my Sister in Belfast for a few days...the change will do him good I think he gets a bit stir crazy when he hasn't been away for a while...whatever your up to today I hope its a brilliant one
