it doesnt always have to be white...


Good morning everyone how was your weekend?, anything exciting...well all our plans came to nothing yesterday we didn't move anything as the heavens opened and threw everything at us...a bit of rain a bit of snow and sleet and was blowing a hurricane, so we decided not too risk getting anything too wet and nobody relished lugging stuff around in that weather...we didn't even get out to buy her house warming present either...so not a very exciting day all in all but we did head to the pet store for some essentials and for me to coo over the Degu's...if you haven't heard of them look them up but be prepared if you don't like mice kinda things...I think they are so so cute and always manage an aaaawwww...oh and I nearly bought a knitted cable sweater for the kitten but caught sight of Phil's 'your nuts woman' look out of the corner of my eye and changed my mind lol...now for my card for today...now who says wedding cards always have to be white?, well this one certainly isn't, in fact I think it has a bit of every colour in it...this stamp is from Wild Rose Studio and is called At the Altar...its beautifully elegant isn't it, I coloured it with my usual distress inks adding a bit of Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust, the stunningly beautiful papers are from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut 6" x 6" Paper Pad, I added a bow made from my favourite Organza Ribbon - White (25mm Wide) its so easy to make lush bows with this wired ribbon I used a sentiment from the Kaisercraft Mini Clear Stamp set - Wedding and added some beautiful roses from the Marianne Design Paper Roses - White/Blue (RB2214) pack and for a finishing touch I stuck on some beautifully coloured pearls from the Mixed Bag of 5mm Flat backed Pearls, everything I used today is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I made the sketch up as I went along but am entering this for the 4 Crafty Girls Challenges, The Ribbon Girls Challenge and the Delicious Doodles Challenge too...I think its a bit of tidying, organising boxes and maybe a bit more colouring practise for me today, thank you all for the encouragement yesterday I am definitely going for the dodgy paper reason for rubbish colouring...well you all agreed with me too didn't you lol...whatever your up to today I hope its a brilliant fun one for you

Paper is not white but oh so romantic. Just beautiful as always Mina. Winter storm for us today. Bad thing is we are expecting lots of ice which is bad for the power lines. No fun without electricity. Crazy thing is I live in the Southern United States. Our average winter weather is in the 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Crazy winter this has been.
