now is this a thought or a threat???? - Friday Sketchers sketch 137 + Do you stack up challenge 2-Distress it

Good morning everyone...well it wasn't a very successful house hunting trip I'm afraid...either they were too far out of town or the ones that weren't were teeny poky flats or houses with no parking, but my eyes are peeled and I have only just started...I felt in the need for some comfort food last night so I made something I haven't had for years and years...two slices of wholemeal bread with good Irish butter, very thinly sliced banana in layers and added honey then toasted, brown sugar works well if you have no honey but open the sandwich and toast the topping which makes the sugar caramelise...yum yum yum real feel good comfort food, try one they are fantastically delicious...right now onto my card for today which is using this amazing image from Crafts and Me, this voodoo fairy I think is my favourite from the Brigid Ashwood stamp sheet 1, she is absolutely fantastic to colour, I used a sentiment that could be either a threat or a kindly thought, you make up your mind lol...the stunning paper is from Crate Paper Kate Collection and is called Flower Girl, I distressed the edges and used some lush glittery ribbon and made a pinned bow with it too...I finished with more pins on the sentiment, Im entering this for the Do You Stack up challenge and the sketch is from Friday Sketchers...I hope Teresa will have sheet 2 of these stamps in soon as I cant wait to colour more of them...right now I'm off to do some serious crafting today as I still have loads to catch up on...have a fantastic day everyone and watch out for stray pins lol

Oooooh, what a gorgeous card, Mina! I can't imagine why you say your colouring is a bit off since your visit to the mainland - it looks pretty fantastic to me!
I won't be able to comment so much this week since I'm on hols on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and dependent on mobile broadband but will catch up with everything on your blog soon. In the meantime, good luck with the house hunt!

Hi Mina,
I love the design paper and the fabulous image on this card. Brilliant work.
Sorry the house hunting didn't go too well but the dream house is out there somewhere. BTW mashed banana with honey mixed in is one of my favourites - spread on pumpkin seed Ryvita - Yum.

This image is so fun!! In fact, I could use his voodoo to cast a "be nice" spell on a couple of people! Your card is amazing and so beautifully colored. Now, off to the kitchen to look for some bananas and honey --- that sounds yummy!

Grenouille Greetings said...

Lovely make, Mina! Fab image and beautifully coloured! Hugs, Lesley

Wilma said...

Fabulous card Mina - what a great image and I love the colours you have used. Not so keen on your comfort food though - sounds a bit sweet and sickly to me but then i prefer savoury to sweet - just an old sour puss!! So you are looking for big city life again, close to craft shops etc. Hope you find one you like soon. :0) xx
