Loving the sunshine

Good morning all you lovely crafters.

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Well goodness me, we've had a really sunny couple of days.
So off we went to the toy shop to buy swings and slides and sandpits and anything else that would fit in the car and boy was it a struggle. By the time we loaded up with seats down etc I just had enough room to slide in with my legs to the side and a huge box on my knee. Good job we didn't have too far to go, took me fifteen minutes to straighten up when my hubby unloaded me from the back of the car!!!
It was worth it though when I saw my Grandson's face light up when he saw his 'playground'.
The slide was a huge hit.
Oh my, to have so much energy.

Next purchase...... a comfy padded chair for a well earned rest (and forty winks) haha.

My card for today.
Just for a change... not,'s another sweet Magnolia Tilda.
This one is Divine Tilda.
I really love this stamp.

I coloured her in using my Aquablend, Spectrum Noir pencils.
