No Fairy visits yet - The Sugar Bowl challenge 47-Maria Theresa's sketch

Good morning everyone are you all warm enough it is freezing cold here I just cant get warm, I was sitting last night with my polar fleece on, my pj's and my fluffy dressing gown and socks, a woman came to the door collecting for charity and as I opened the door she was hit with a wall of heat as my heating is pumped up to 25degrees and she says 'are you cold?'...well duh lol...the fairies still haven't brought my head back just yet I went to the shop with my Dad and then tried to get into the wrong car when I came out, my Dad was sitting in the car watching me cracked up laughing now don't you think he could have tooted or something, men huh...if you know any friendly fairies tell them enough is enough please before I end up driving away with someone strange lol...my card today is for the Sugar Bowl challenge which is a fab sketch by Maria Theresa which I tipped on its side for the image to fit properly, I used this fantastic stamp from the Simply Sassy range called Pillow talk isn't she a fantastic image for a teenagers card, I really want some of the new ones but will have to wait for my shocked purse to recover from the NEC first...the lush papers are from the Basicgrey Olivia paper pad and I finished by adding a zip pull tag and green ribbon and a yellow Prima flower...I hope you like it and stay warm everyone and if you live somewhere warm send me some please

Yes, that image is perfect for a teenager's card and it's beautifully colored! And after hearing your stories, I think I need a fairy to bring back my head, too, lol. I am always doing crazy stuff. As for warm - hey, you can have a whole bunch - it's been way too hot & humid here lately. yuck.

Diane said...

You're right, Mina, that image is perfect for a teenager's card (I'm thinking number 1 granddaughter now!) I love the way you've coloured her hair and I think I spot some of your immaculate paper piecing in there! Fabulous work!

She is so cool and hip and this is one gorgeous card Mina. Had to laugh at you getting into the wrong car. My Mum did that years ago and like your dad I sat and laughed while she told the man in the car to hurry up as her fish and chips would be cold lol.

Beautiful card, Mina. It always amazes me how you get hair so right! I just can't do it.
Your little tale today reminded me of a story my cousin told me. She had come out of a restaurant with a group of others. They had all meandered across the parking lot and as she sat down in the middle seat of the people carrier they had travelled in, she pointed to her sister who was trying to get into another car and said "Oh look, Andrea is getting in the wrong car". Nobody answered and it was at that point that she realised not only was it her in the wrong car but there was an entire nknown family in there with her!
Hope the fairies bring back your noggins soon! Warmest wishes, Lesley
