DT card Pansy

Well..the third day of Colin's retirement and we're still on speaking terms. There has been so much to finalise with our business I think it took all of Monday and part of yesterday but today I can box everything up ready for the Inland Revenue, what's the bet I have lost something? Oh yes...I forgot...today is my birthday. After Colin forgot this morning (a bit of a nudge was all that was needed) I am now being sung to on a regular basis. Although being called 'Birthday Girl' is a bit of a reach for the old imagination (I can guess what the grandchildren would say, probably something to do with a monkey in the zoo) Colin is off to bowls this morning and after a visit to the local town I think I will have a 'me' day. A spot of gardening, colouring and generally just chillin' out. I have just had to update this posting...Conversation with my ever lovin'
Colin 'I was going to take you out to lunch but it might be a bit late'
Me 'That's ok, maybe get a chinese or fish and chips tonight'
Colin'I will have to see what I feel like, meaning said chinese or fish and chips'
Me 'ARRGGGGHHH!!! Is it me??? men!
This weeks lovely image from Christine very easy to colour so I've made a couple of cards in different shades. The pansy's are printed onto watercolour paper, coloured with promarkers. Butterflies made with a Martha Stewart punch and swirls and ladybird made with my cricut. Tied tape from stash and the greeting and frame from my craft studio.
I hope you have a really nice day today, the sun is out already here in Norfolk so I hope it is good warm'ish weather for you too. I have entered this into the challenge at
The Paper Shelter Challenge 64 Birthday  http://thepapershelter.blogspot.co.
