Dance in the rain...


Good morning everyone I hope your all having an excellent week and are doing loads of fun things while I'm away...give me the gossip so I can read it when I get back...well well look at me wifiying it up in our hotel...yes its the real me, Wexford is stunningly beautiful, lushly green and loads of thatched cottages we are loving it, we have been out and about and taken loads of fab photos to show you all when we get back...it poured from the heavens yesterday just as we were getting out the car and this gorgeous bronzed little old man toodled over to me saying , these are for you mrs, too make you smile` and pressed two toffees into my hand...how lovely was that and needless to say it made me grin ear to ear...right now enough irish gossip and on to my card for today...I chose this stunningly beautiful Princess from the C.C. Designs Sweet November Princesses stamp set...I have so enjoyed colouring and paper piecing these beautiful little sweeties...I coloured it with my usual distress inks and paper pieced her skirt using the lush papers from the My Mind's Eye - Oxford Lane 6x6 Pad...aren't these papers just sssssoooooo fabulous...I love the colours...I added some of the cutest little flat backed pearls from the 3mm Mixed Colours Flat backed Pearls pack and a gorgeously coloured yellow bow made from Organza Ribbon - Sunflower (25mm Wide)...I based today's sketch on one from Mojo Monday I think...sorry the old memory is rusting up lol...everything for today's card is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...well our holiday is half way now and I hope we have managed not to use the umbrellas we took with us but not banking on it lol...whatever your up to today have a good one
