Chocolate and Strawberry!

Good Morning to You All, I hope all is well with you and that you have great plans for he weekend, even if it's just a quiet one.

We are going to a friend's BBQ this afternoon, I hope the weather holds, a bit watery looking just now, but it might pass over.  It's one of the "boys" and it will be lovely too see his wife again whom I've not seen since New Year. So good food, and of course the "Band" will give us some music, and I've got my knitting, yes I'm a sado taking my knitting with me, but I can talk and knit at the same time, s why not.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my Oldie card yesterday, I appreciate your visits and comments. I had  new visitor yesterday too, Norm and he left a lovely comment too. I don't know if you know Norm, he posts on Mrs. A's blog at 5 of the o'clock each day and tells of his adventures of the day, he's a great character and he has a lovely girlfriend called Sammy. You can find Norm here

My card today is another for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge;
I've gone for Chocolate and Strawberry this time, another favourite combination of tastes and used images from the Honeysuckle Butterfly and you can find them here, papers are form a beautiful paper pad from the works and I've mounted the image on to Chocolate and pink Centura Pearl card.
The colouring is with Gansi Tambi Watercolours after having embossed the image with Wow powders in Copper.
The beautiful ribbon and stickpin are from the bundles of the most gorgeous embellishments that I won from Wendy, Spanish Crafter.  The colours were just perfect.

The card is just for my box, hence the For You sentiment.
I'm off to get a bit of ironing done now and will watch an episode of Colombo at the same time, I've always liked Ironing and watching the old black and white films on BBC 2 that used to be on.

Oh and just to say, I didn't get a Fairy back from Skye, unfortunately, Ken and Alistair didn't geanywhere near the Fairy Pools as there were so many Tourists, couldn't even get into the car park. They had planned to go into them, but felt they would look chumps trooping along in their wetsuits, they did go to the Viking Village where there has been lots of excavations going on, said that was so interesting. There rain was awful though, but they enjoyed themselves nevertheless.

Cheerio for now and see you soon,
I would like to enter my card into;
and also;
