be careful what you ask for...


Good morning everyone, did you have a fabulous day yesterday?...anything exciting, go on tell us all and make us jealous lol...we went out for lunch and a little teeny bit of shopping, I didn't find any curtains, well that's not kinda true I narrowed it down to four...oh no wheres another woman when you need one lol...we went into a little shop in town to get some stuff to feed the wild birds, there's hundreds here and I love watching them so what better way than to feed them...I know it sounds kinda bad but the best things to feed them in winter are Fat Balls which is a mix of fruit, seeds and fat that they need for the winter...but when I went into the shop I couldn't find them but there was no way I was going to ask a male assistant if he had any fat balls lol...so I sent Phil instead, he came back knowing where they were and after a min or two I asked him did you really ask him where they were, no he says I asked where the wild bird food was as they are beside them...now why the hell didn't I think of that duh lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this stunning Crafts and Me Hannah Lynn digi called Summers Day, shes stunning but makes me feel cold looking at her she needs a fleece and some woolly socks on I think lol...I used my usual distress inks to colour her and a stunning Bo Bunny paper called Smoochable Huggable...lush colours aren't they...I finished with a pink gingham bow and some hearts cut from the paper...I'm entering this for the Card Crafter's Circle challenge and the Clearly Inspired challenge too...we haven't anything planned for today except I'm going to make some chicken and vegetable soup for all the family to enjoy on Monday, its one of their favourites and goes really well with crusty bread for a winter dinner...so I will be up to my elbow in vegetables...whatever your up to today have a great warm toasty day

Lovely card...Hope you find your curtains...I know what it is like to search....I am trying to find a big 8 x 10 rug and pillow to go with for my front room.
I've been looking off and on for about 3 months!

Funny that you talked about curtains. I got mine yesterday and in one was a little mistake....so I can go back today and wait again 3 weeks :-(
Sweet card Mina.
Today I will be doing some crafting and making Lasagne.

WHAHA it's just like asking the waiter if he has frogglegs lol!!!!
We make these fatballs our selves....fill a plastic cup with animal/vegetable fat, lots of good stuff mixed through, piece of rope in the middle and let it get hard...remove the cup and the birds have a feast!!!
Lovely card Mina, cozy warm colours!!
