rocker...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and had a fabulous weekend, it was supposed to be cold here yesterday but we decided to head for a boot sale and while we were there it was very warm and sunny which is fantastic unless you took notice of the weathermen and dressed for the cold, five minuets in and I was ready to strip it all off lol...we had a great time mooching but the only thing I saw I loved was a really funky 60's coffee set, you know the type, tall and angular but they wanted too much for it and wouldn't budge on the price so I gad to just walk away, we went and got Phil some Cuban food to sample, which he loved...after that we had our beautiful Daughter and other half round for dinner, two days back and she is loaded with a cold the poor thing...but it meant they didn't have to cook so they enjoyed their dinner...right now onto my card today which is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly Challenge...this month it was my choice of theme and I chose...Ribbon...and every single thing I used on my card is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...this cute little fella is from Bildmalarna...isn't he just gorgeous...hes called Mimo rocking horse and I coloured him with my distress inks and paper pieced his little outfit (any excuse for more cutting out lol) and added some glitter using Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust, I also used another stamp for the banner across the ribbon its the Bildmalarna - Mini Christmas banner cut out and raised up to make it look 3d...well 3d ish anyway lol...the fabulously yummy papers are from the lush Echo Park - Reflections Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad...perfect colours for Christmas aren't they...I added a ruffled bow made with Gingham Wired Edge Gold Thread Ribbon - Green, I finished with three pendants from the Wooden Flourishes - Pennants FL441 set covered in paper from the pad, a few scattered pearls from the Mixed Bag of 3mm Flat backed Pearls and the cutest little charms from the 5 x Snowflake 6 Charms (B024-W) bag...the fab sketch is from the Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Card Crafter's Circle Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge too...I haven't a clue what I'm up to today, the weather is supposed to be ok but I don't need to go out so might just fit in some crafting instead of heading out...whatever your up to have a brilliant one
