Thanks for visiting my blog today. It's wet and windy in Kent today - a bit different to the beautiful blue skies we saw on Monday! My husband and I took a day off work today and had a very productive day. We had a big clear up in the garage and took a car full of rubbish to the tip. Then we visited Toys R Us to buy Thomas' birthday present. He's really into Fireman Sam at the moment so we got him a lovely box set with all the characters, a fire station, fire engine, helicopter and ambulance. We had lunch at Pizza Express (another discount voucher!) and then home to do a tidy up in the spare bedroom (my craft room) before picking Thomas up. Unfortunately I'm back at work tomorrow.
We're up to challenge no.44 on the Truly Scrumptious blog. We have a sketch for you to follow with the optional extra challenge of using Petals, Pearls & Pins.
It's been a while since I used a Magnolia image and I love this Tilda sitting and picking the petals off her daisy. She is coloured with a mixture of aqua Promarkers and distress inks. The papers are DCWV Linen Closet and the sentiment is from Personal Impressions. I couldn't find my pins so I added some pearl sprays which look quite similar to pins!
I thought I would share this picture of Thomas with you. I tried to get him to help me make some biscuits on Monday. He was interested for about 30 seconds and then went to get his step and proceeded to wash all his trains in the washing up bowl. This took about 45 minutes and he was soaked by the time he had finished!
