Hello Friend!

Hello my lovely blog chums, I hope you're having a great week so far, when I got home from work, my intention was to take the dog out for a walk beside the river, however, the rain was belting down, and the wind was blowing so much, that I decided to park that idea, and there was no objection from the little chap......obviously there are countless other housewifey tasks that could have occupied my time, but instead I decided to do a little colouring, which then led to making today's card......
This little sweetie comes from a Lili of the Valley pad, she has been coloured with ProMarkers. The papers are from a Raspberry Road pad. The sentiment is my own creation using Baby Lexi font. When we were in Scotland several weeks ago I went into a little haberdashery store to buy ribbon to use on the  wedding invitation samples that I am working on for my step daughter (I will tell you more about this in a future post) I spotted a jar with the gorgeous little buttons with a red gingham bow attached, and I couldn't resist popping a few into my basket..... aren't they cute! Added a couple of acrylic gumdrops from YNS, as a finishing touch.
