Spring has Sprung.......


Afternoon peeps, hope you are well and have had a lovely Easter break, must say its typical April weather dodging the showers, although yesterday when we went to Liverpool for the day it was lovely, blue sky all day, bit breezy when we went round The Albert Docks but can't complain. Shopping is really good there and I managed to spend far too much on 4 artifical flowers from a lovely Sia shop which I spied as we went past on the bus, I've put them up until I do a bit of revamping later on in the year, knowing me I'll forget where I put them......lol. Mind you I didn't spend as much as my son did on trains, we had originally gone to Liverpool to find a shop there which stocks virtually every train, (it was set up like Argos for trains, by the way I mean minature trains as he is going to build his own layout), we caught a double decker bus to the shop as it was about 4 miles out of the city centre, haven't been on a double decker bus in years and we managed to get the front seats on the top deck.......big kid at heart.

Todays card is featuring a Teddy Bea image and I've used some of the new delish papers from Prima,( the image is coloured in with Prismas and then I added lots of Star Dust stickles, I'm out of another pot of that now, its the only thing I ever buy several of at a time apart from tape. The pearls are from Mei Flowers as are the little sequin flowers and the roses are from Wild Orchid crafts.
