aaaaacccccchhhhhooooooo.....


Good afternoon everyone at long last I have managed to do my post...my poor little laptop had a virus bless it...my galaxy tablet was fine but I couldn't post my pictures on there as they were saved on my laptop...so after a lot of checking and scanning and rescanning I think I have got it so fingers crossed everything works ok now...phew right start again...did you all have a fabulous weekend and do something exciting?...we were supposed to do the long put off trip to Ikea on Saturday but sods law Phil got called into work and spent the whole day there....so part two we decided we would go on Sunday but I couldn't ask Phil to spend his only day off trekking through a shop now could I...so instead we had a chill day but did manage a detour while we were out for coffee to buy a few new plants for the garden (you can always find somewhere that sells plants cant you lol)...right now I better get on with my card hadn't I before this goes kaput again even though all my bits are crossed for it not too...I used this fantastic Mo's Digital Pencil image for my card today...I love the look on her face don't you it always makes me smile...shes called Bad Hair Day and she reminds me of when our Daughter trimmed her fringe when she was about 12...it was as short as her fringe and just as spiky lol...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and paper pieced her dress (any excuse for cutting out lol),,,the fabulous papers I used and the sentiment tag are from the My Minds Eye - Oxford Lane 6x6 pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I love the colours in it don't you...I made the sketch up as I went along but am entering it for the Brown Sugar Challenge, and the Alphabet Challenge  too...I'm off to make dinner for tonight now as my lovely Dad is coming for it...it has been fantastic catching up with him this weekend, then maybe a little bit of sun while it last as its meant to be stormy this week...oh no out comes the umbrellas again its a good thing we kept them close by lol...have a fantastic day everyone and watch out for those virus's floating around they are little devils

Oh my gosh. I have to have this one. My granddaughter, Caroline, the princess, did this several times. She said she wanted to be a "barber" when she grew up. LOL. I love the polka dot and plaid paper combination. Stunning.
