Hello Love and Crushed Curry from Stampin' Up!

When it's a gloomy old day you need a colour like Stampin' Up's Crushed Curry to give you a lift! That was the idea behind today's card, made to cheer up a friend.

Add to that lovely bright colour a bird singing his heart out, sunshine, sequins and a directional arrow saying go, go GO! and surely this card couldn't fail to put a bit of pep in anyone's step!

I used a couple of strips of the Color Me Autumn washi tape and my favourite of this year's Stampin' Up hostess sets, Hello Love.

I hope my card cheered my friend up but I should have lent her my youngest son!

I bought some pears from the market the other day, gorgeously ripe and bursting with juice. My boys had one after dinner yesterday and the youngest immediately wanted another. "Could you get one for me?" I asked as he hovered over the fruit bowl, looking for the best ones. He began to sing in the tune of the Adele song 'someone like you'. "I want nothing but the best pear for you-hooo!" he wailed. He carried on in this vein until the end when he gazed soulfully at me and sang: "Sometimes the pears are ripe and sometimes..." he paused and said abruptly: "Sometimes they aren't!"

See you tomorrow,
