could I get a better match...


Good morning everyone how are you all? well and happy I hope...the weather here is terrible so so windy and wet and miserable but never mind I managed a trip out with my lovely Dad yesterday just for an hour as I'm still not 100% but it was lovely to get out, I haven't been out for over a week so the fresh air did me the power of good...of course we had to have the 'put the world to rights coffee' too...I fancied a cup of Earl Grey but the cafe had no teabags...when I asked for one they said they had run out of them and were waiting for a delivery...am I being daft but because this cafe is in a supermarket couldn't they just get a box off the shelves duh lol ???...I settled for a coffee though that will teach me to be picky wont it...right now onto my card for today...how perfect is this fabulously cute Sugar Nellie stamp called Stitch paired with these amazing papers from the Kaisercraft - Needle & Thread 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, you would swear they were made to go together wouldn't you...when I got this stamp I knew I had the perfect paper pad for it...I used my usual distress inks and everything I used for the card is cut from the paper pad except for just a few (yeah right serious button overload lol) buttons from my stash...I made the sketch up as I went along but am entering this for the Card Makin Mamas Challenge, Craftyhands Challenge and Sister Act Challenge too...I'm having a day in bed again today, well maybe a bit of crafting will creep just don't tell Phil he will tell me off like he did Monday when I went out so ssssshhhhhhhhhh keep it to yourself lol...whatever your up to today have a warm, cosy one

Wow. I love this, sweet image and fab papers and detailing. I know what you mean about the tea, I was once told in a cafe in Sainsburys they didn't have any salad, yet the supermarket was full of it!
