Happy Mimosa...

Good afternoon dear bloggers what a weird day it's been here weather wise. One minute lovely sunshine, feeling quite warm, next minute an all out mighty downpour with water running down the streets. Then 10 minutes later the sun back out, what is going on? Luckily I've not had to go anywhere today, but my eldest Meghan came in from school like a drowned rat, (not at all happy might I add!! LOL !!)

 I managed today to get a card finished without too many stops and starts, I think it was something to do with all the new toys someone got for their birthday! Kept them occupied for ages! great!! There were a couple of fights over certain things but on the whole a peaceful morning.

So onto my card which today is made using a Bildmalarna stamp called Happy Mimosa. She's such a sweetie, reminds me of a rag doll I had as a little girl.

I went all out pink and more pink today, I do love my pinks. I think after doing my sons card and using boy colours I'm allowed to indulge today!!LOL!!
As usual I've used Wild Orchid Flowers on it as well as some pale pink feathered babies breath flowers that I buy from my local haberdashery shop, which is also fantastic for ribbons. The ribbon on here is from there too.

The papers Ive used are from another first Edition pad called Love Letters, I'll say it again I just love these pads so much, there is so much in them and the designs are just delish!

The little wired irredescent heart beads are from my one and only local craft shop, Days to Remember in Falkirk. I went in to get stocked up with bazzill cardstock and as usual found loads off other things that I just had to have, well I did!!

As is my usual I have to highlight as much as I can with stickles. You can never have enough glitter!
This card will be for sale on eBay later if anyone is interested.

I dont think I will have time for a post tomorrow as Meghan and I are off to the degree gradutes art show at the Glasgow School of Art.
Meghan would love to go this art college when she leaves school and is very excited to have been invited to the private showing of the degree show, it goes public on the Friday I think. So we are having a girly night out, very rare occasion I might add.
If I'm allowed I may take some photos to put on here.

I would like to say another thank you to my new followers, and esp to Karen who has a list of new blogs to watch for and has very kindly put this one on the list.

Well I'm off to cook dinner, the little one is standing beside me holding her bib!! me thinks she wants fed !!LOL!!

love and hugs
