Bird on a Swing

Hi, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. It was a lovely day here today. My son arranged for a friend to do a little job on my car this morning so I didn't get it back until just after lunch time. A couple of different warning messages kept popping up, some glitch in the computer and it needed a wire upgrade? as well. Luckily he also noticed one of the headlights wasn't fully functional and popped in a globe for free. There is another small job that needs doing and he has ordered the parts and Laurie can do the work for me so no labour cost involved. Yeah!!! He's a motor bike mechanic, but has done work on his own cars so can use that knowledge on the car.
Had several of the kids drop in today and also leave dogs here for a "visit" with our dogs. Our youngest daughter came for tea - we had roast beef and roast vegies. Finished off with a glass of Muscato as I accidently knocked the bottle out of the fridge and it made the top come open slightly and was leaking out so....LOL, we had to drink it.
My card for today was made using SU Pacific Point for the basecard, a layer of SU Wisteria Wonder and then a chequered yellow DP from We R Memory Keepers called "TRAVEL light" a freebie pad with a magazine. The little image is from Bugaboo and was printed onto white card and coloured with Copics and adhered to a piece of the blue card. I cut 2 different size nesties - one in Wisteria Wonder and the smaller one in the DP added a sentiment from a retired SU set called "Hello Spring". It was inked in basic grey. Added another small piece of the DP backed with the Wisteria Wonder and finished it off with 3 purple rhinestones. For the inside I used the negative piece of the diecut - adhered it to a piece of the blue that I had cut out the centre of so when I stuck it down, the Wisteria Wonder would show through.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Catch the Bug - Photo Inspiration - Easter/Spring theme
ABC DT Challenge - Anything Goes
Fairy Fun Fridays - Anything Goes
Well that's it from me tonight.
