Pink say cheese

Morning all and good news the sun is shinning. 

Back from the Village Hall this morning.... cuppa and cakes and had my cards for sale
Had some little helpers today, one of the ladies had friends over from Switzerland and
the children just loved looking at my cards. Bless them.

Here is my card for today and I am really in the pink faze of my "life" 

so to speak everything I am doing recently is pink.... a little while ago it was purple. 

I have been using up bibs and bobs from my stash for this card. 

Stamped using AlteNew Say Cheese stamps onto a pink mopped up background paper
mounted onto pink card and then onto another mopped / pink card.

Added the sentiment, coloured in a grey butterfly to make it pink, used my alcohol pen to make
the ribbon "pink" although it looks orange, and added a Craftwork cards punched out rose.

Mounted all onto a pink card blank. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Create and Inspire - 50

Ikes World Challenge - Pun intended

Well best get on and see whats what. Getting a new BT hub today so I hope that I
will not have any problems installing it.

Thank you for coming over to see me today.

Mum had another small fall this morning, "off the loo" not sure what is happening
there, she thinks she fell asleep while on the loo????

I have told her to get a whistle to blow so that she can get the carer in to help her.

This was the carers suggestion as Mums bathroom is a little way away from where the
carer sleeps. 

I am not feeling too good today, got pains in my tum... not sure what thats about so
going to get a hot water bottle now and rest for the afternoon.

Have a good day..
