Happy Monday everyone - Bunny Zoe's Crafts Monthly Challenge-Vintage + Friday Sketchers 114

Happy Monday everyone I hope you all had a brilliant weekend...despite three hours online last night my swimsuit saga is still ongoing...I'm despairing of ever finding one and it seems skinny dipping or bra and pants might be the only options left lol...I have a vision of small children scattering lol...anyway onto my card for today which is for our new challenge over at Bunny Zoe's Monthly challenge which this month is Vintage, all your creations last month were incredible, there are some massively talented crafter's out there in blogland...I picked 1940's-50's vintage and used this amazing new Magnolia from the Bon Voyage range shes called Travelling Tilda and shes a dream to colour with that sweet little hat...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with some of the stunning papers from the Fancy Pants My Family paper pack, the sentiment is from it too...I finished with some string, just plain old household string, a button and a beautiful crystal headed pin...everything I used I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts except the string...I hope you like it and when you have time hop on over to the Bunny Zoe's Crafts Monthly Challenge blog to have a look at the rest of the teams lush work, I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers so am entering my card for it too...have a fantastic Happy Monday and don't forget to smile you never know who will smile back at you

I remember when my mum was young she once had a knitted swimsuit .. i could always get my needles out !!
Trouble is ... you cant actually swim in it ... as it stretches in the water lol!
Hope you have more luck today

It's not Monday here yet...whew, lol. That image is too cute - definitely looks vintage. Love your coloring and the colors/design you used on your card make her pop off the page. And I keep forgetting to tell you that I love your card that is pictured in your blog banner (it's one of the reasons that got me hooked on your blog - along with your fab sense of humor)!

Gorgeous Mina, and definitely has the period feel to it. That Tilda is so sweet but your colouring of her makes her magical. Superb as always. Hugs, Sxx

Miria said...

Hi, Mina. This card is superb! I like everything of it. Actually, Tilda's hat has a vintage look itself. I think I'll give a try to the BZ challenge. No offence but I can't help smiling reading about your swimsuit saga! Hugs. Miria

Mandy said...

Hi Mina,
Beautiful card...Love the new Tilda and your colouring is amazing...Hope you get the swimsuit sorted..I must admit when I was looking it was awful I had bit's of my body I didn't know existed showing up in a swimsuit,it got to the stage where I thought a polo neck sweater and a pair of three quarter trousers where my only option..lol.. hence I don't wear a swimsuit very often only when a ten minute warning on the beach has been given,don't want to be responsible for frightening children and animals...
