next installment of the swimsuit saga! - Sunday Sketch and Stash challenge 34 + Saturday Challenge 95-Its a mans world

Good morning everyone and I hope your all well and happy...right episode 97 (or does it just seem that many) of the swimsuit saga, I went onto the Additions website and found a few nice swimsuits so bought them and they are on their way as we speak, so fingers crossed it will be sorted if all the bits fit into them anyway...have you ever, whatever happened to being able to go to a shop buy three swimsuits and be sorted, or was that in my youth lol...right onto my card for today which is for the fabby sketch over at Sunday Sketch and stash challenge, I used this fantastic little Hanglar image coloured with distress ink and my new stash is these amazing papers from Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend range this striped and red numbered one is called Tube Socks, isn't that a brilliant name...I added a sentiment from another CC paper and a rumpled red ribbon and buttons from my stash...I hope you like it, I'm also entering this for the Its a Mans world Saturday challenge too...have a brilliant day everyone

Hi, Mina. I Knew you could !... talking about the final episode of the swimsuit saga! This year I won't probably go to the seaside despite we have a house in Versilia- Tuscany otherwise the saga will go on ... for me! The card is so cute, these stamps are gorgeous and this little cook is perfectly coloured! hugs. Miria

Hi Mina. Lovely card. Cute image and beautifully coloured. Hope swimsuits are perfect when they arrive. They are definitely the hardest item to get for holidays. Donna

This acrd is gorgeous Mina and you've coloured that great Hanglar image so well! I really wish I could find a way to buy Hanglar images at properly structured prices - they seem to be as rare as hens' teeth and they go for silly money on ebay.
Good luck with the cozzies!

This is cute! Love that image of a "boy" baking! Oh, and what does "be sorted" mean? Anyway, I'm still refusing to do the new swimsuit shopping thing. If I really need it, I'll do the one piece w/ a skirt wraparound thingie...LOL.

Lovely card Mina - at first I thought the stripey paper strips were paint tester strips that you can get from B & Q! Now there's a thought..... x

Sue said...

Yet another gorgeous card.Love the colours.

Shelly said...

Very cute card, Mina. :) The swimsuit issue isn't because you're aging. I swear that they're using more spandex in suits than they used to. When I tried on my clothing size in a suit it sucked so tightly to me that I felt like I was getting a mammogram. lol I ended up having to buy one size larger than I wear in clothing.

tilly said...

What a great card, the image and sentiment go so well together lol, I love it
