at long long last...


Good morning everyone yes your eyes don't deceive you I have a card to show...about bloody time too I hear you yell lol...well you all having a good weekend then and did any of you try my recipe,,,if any of you did I would to know if you enjoyed it...we had a lovely day yesterday doing nothing special but its so rare we get a Saturday alone we really enjoyed mooching around shops, buying the food for lunch today and wandering around the new clothes in the shops (though we didn't buy any)...lovely day all round...and I even managed to find a teeny bit of mojo creeping in too...all that was needed was one of Mo's Digital Pencil images to give it a little shove, I'm not sure its back yet as I struggled to get it done but its peeping over the wall lol...this is the gorgeous First Day Faye, isn't she so so cute and shes perfect for any little girls first day at new school don't you think...I coloured her with my distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the Prima 6x6 Tea Thyme paper pad I bought ages and ages ago from Bunny Zoe's Crafts but I don't think its in stock anymore...I really like the contrast of that black paper and it looks a bit like a blackboard doesn't it...I finished with some lush rick cream satin ribbon, a bow, a button and a key charm (would you believe I found a whole bag of different charms stuck in the back of a drawer, I really need a proper clear out don't I lol...the fab sketch is from the Everybody Art Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Paper Crafting Journey Challenge and the The Hobby House Challenge too...we are having the whole gang around for lunch today and roast beef with all the trimmings are on the menu followed by my homemade cheesecake...I love family Sunday lunches don't you...I went into the kitchen last night and Phil had done all the prep for lunch, he's certainly a keeper isn't he...I'm off to see if I can do some colouring before I need to start cooking...whatever your up to today I hope its a brilliant day for you and your family
