an apple a day...


Good morning everyone I hope your having a brilliant weekend...bbbbbrrrrrr its cold here, but not as cold as some other places in Britain so I'm not gonna complain my lips are sealed, just in case...our Daughter and her other half had a brilliant time in Amsterdam but where shattered when they flew in so we skipped lunch to get them home for a snooze...but they picked up the ball of fluff adorable sumo cat later in the evening...I must admit though I wont miss the hair, it has taken me ages with the aid of a lint roller and a roll of sellotape to get the hairs off my sofa and that despite the fact she lay on an old towel and not on the material...the hairs get everywhere...oh and I wont miss my itchy nose either...we didn't do anything on Saturday, well I say that but I did a few hours playing in my craft room while Phil did a clean up of his shed...so we didn't just sit on our butts all day lol...right now onto my card today...go on have a guess who this cutie and her best friend are by...go on...you don't need much of a clue with that beautiful drawing do you...its from Mo's Digital Pencil of course and is called Elke and Bear...I coloured this stunner with my usual distress inks and had brilliant fun cutting it out...the lush papers I used are some of the few I have left from the Kaisercraft - Remember Me 6.5"x6.5" Paper pad...this is a beautiful paper pad and like all the Kaisercraft paper pads there are four sheets of sentiments and embellishments at the back of it which is where the sentiments came from, the pads from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished my card with what else but a few buttons (well I couldn't resist any longer)...the fab sketch is from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge and the Charisma Cardz challenge too...I think we are heading into town today for a little pre Christmas shopping mooch and coffee, so wish me luck with my many lists for Christmas, I will need it...whatever your up to today have a lovely warm wrapped up one
