Beautiful Bear

Good Morning, looks like its a great start to our Jubilee weekend, well, it is weather wise anyway as it wasn't too good a start for me this morning.  Looks like my partner decided there was room for a new hobby in my life.....plane spotting! Let me explain.....I got up this morning at 7.30 to drive to the airport to pick up my partner at 8 am, so off I go to the airport, coffee in travel mug, sun shining, hair sticking up like a ducks bum but hey, who would see me. I pull up at the airport....and sit.....and sit....counting the planes, 1...2...6...Its now 8.30 and no sign of him, so I phone him, no answer, phone him again..no answer, must be picking up his luggage....plane must have come in late...My phone goes...ah there he is I thought....a sleepy voice comes over the phone....where r u I said, in bed says he....Omg I've missed my flight he says. Arghhhh, you can imagine the conversation i had with myself as I drove home Arghhhhhh. So, plans have been changed, we were all supposed to go to Lurgan show today but now there is one less, I'm not at all impressed! But, on a lighter note, we will still have a lovely day and the weather is perfect. 
Moaning over....for now! Here is a little card I used with a penny black stamp called 'Dream a Dream' Mmm, I know someone who does far too much dreaming!! I have coloured this little bear with promarkers and kept the design clean and simple with designer papers from First Edition 'Up Up and Away' , I love the script on this sentiment, think its so pretty, its a stamp from Hero Arts. I've punched some little flowers to coordinate with the flowers on the branch and added some little gems to the centres. This card did start out as a card for my Dad but its way to girly so I've made him another one, I'll post that later. 

Right, I'm off to get ready for the show, think I need to get out of the house and inhale some nice fresh air to get rid of this negativity, going to sit on a nice blanket with some food and watch some horses. Enjoy your day whatever your doing. Catch you all later. x

Haha your partner sounds just like mine :P I had the same situation at the train station a while ago! On the upside, if you're anything like me and my man, he'll do anything to stop being given out to haha, so take advantage of it! :D

Fab card, I love the papers and that image is adorable :)

What a sweet card - lovin' the cute stamps and pretty paper. As for your OH, I believe that it would be only fair for him to maybe fund a little stash shopping. Not unreasonable, under the circumstances! Thank you for playing at Sweet Stampin' this week. Tracey x
