Morning Minah glad you got sorted with your swimsuit i have the problem of being too long in the body guess it was from when dad put me on the rack to strech me. lol. Love your paper piecing and your papers just a stunning and striking card.

Poppet said...

Beautiful card Mina, I love the paper piecing. I'm glad you've now got your cossies, it's one less thing to worry about before your hols. I always find going on holiday stressful and we only go camping in England I would be a nervous wreck if I had to go on a plane abroad. Have a great weekend. :-) xx

cardmaking bird said...

Absolutely beautiful, Mina - it really is stunning!! Congrats on the swimsuits - I hope they're the perfect fit. The reason I say that is a group of my friends just went away to Cyprus and on the first day they were all round the pool. One of my friends dived in, her bikini top parted like a pair of curtains and her bottoms ended up round her ankles and our other two friend's husbands were standing round the pool!!! Curse those Primark bikinis!!! Ha, ha! Marie x

Jodi said...

Hugs
