Loving Life

How should  a Saturday morning start - with a bacon buttie and a cup (well a mug - I'm Northern!) of coffee in bed - bliss.  Follow that with a Ginger adventure and the weekend is off to a cracking start.  The adventure today was a walk I've been meaning to to for a while.  So I got Steve to drop me off at Daisy Nook on his way to cricket and I walked from there to Park Bridge (great visitors centre and a very helpful warden)and then back towards Hartshead Pike. 

On the way from Daisy Nook to Park Bridge

Park Bridge

With my steps done it was time to settle down to some crafting.
One of my aims is to enjoy every day and to share that with other people I meet, as you never know what's just around the corner.  This week I heard about a fellow blogger and crafter, Michelle, that's had a terrible accident which has meant she's lost an eye.  Her friends have organised a card drive for and as she loves donkeys, I used this lovely little donkey digi download that was designed just for her to make this card.  I was inspired by the challenges at:
A Spoonful of Sugar - sending donkey smiles
Meljen's Designs - circles galore - with little donkey in a circle and the dotty paper I think that's plenty of circles.

I decided to have a play with another of my Patchwork Polly stamps.  This is the ever so cute Chloe, looking like butter wouldn't melt.  The patchwork squares were made my stamping onto Basic Grey Kioshi patterned paper and then adding further details with my Copic pens and then all softened with some antique linen distress ink blended over the top.
This card was inspired by the challenges at:
My Time to Craft - angelic
Sweet Stampin Challenge - things with wings

So I've had my play day today, which means it's homework day tomorrow!
