Oh what a beautiful morning... oh what a beautiful day...

Even my singing isn't stopping this lovely weather!!!! YAY!!!
People in the UK obviously know we don't get many 'hot' days so I am making the most of it..flipflops and 3/4 trousers lol... (although I will wear my flipflops now until November!!!- very warm blooded lol)

So yesterday was a totally fab day!! It was the Hobbycraft Fayre at the NEC so I met up with Fluff and Crafty Emma  we had some fun looking around and we may have purchased a few things too lol...
One thing that I loved was how many bloggers I met... It's funny isn't it, I have known some of you for over a year and you have become such fabby friends, yet we have never met!!!

So I have 2 cards again today...

Firstly My CES card.. This week we want you to go DIE CUT CRAZY!!!!


My image is a Gorjuss girl (I didn't realise what a dream they were to colour!!)
The ticket is from Whimsy stamps
I have used a nestie die cut, the ticket die and the swirl (Marianne design)
The papers are MME and along with the buttons, flowers and charm they are all from Crafty Emma's store!!

I am entering this into:

Ladybug crafts - Monochromatic


Moving along with the times - precious metal (Charm!!)

Cupcake - Monochromatic

One stop crafts - Angels and Fairies

Then secondly it my week over at SWEET STAMPING.

this week it was a challenge and the winner picked - the weather

So here is my card:


The image is from Pollycrafts new release..isn't she a beaut??
The papers and sun are from Echo park - which you can purchase over at Crafty Emma's store and they are now releasing some 6 x 6 papers yay!!!
I have to say I am really pleased with how this card turned out..you know what it is like when you imagine something!!

I am also entering this into:

Prarie Fairy - Oh so spring!

Totally Gorjuss - Spring is sprung

Hope you all have a fab weekend xxx
