The gremlins are still about - Whimsy & Stars new release

Good morning everyone...well those little gremlins are still about, I remade my cards yesterday morning and I have a habit of throwing them on the floor to dry and I stood on one of them...that one has gone in the bin and is not being remade as I cant look at it again lol...then the hairdresser rang me to say she had to cancel as she was sick, so its today the dreaded haircut, lets hope that one goes ahead or I run the risk of going away with hair looking like a busted sofa...good news is that Dads car is being fixed on the 3rd May, the delay is because of all the holidays here but at least he has a date for it, and they will replace the door with a new one so it should look good as new (fingers crossed)...I'm looking forward to dinner this evening though as my Dad and Daughter and her other half are all coming, I love family dinners don't you...my card for today is to show you some of the gorgeous new images from the new release at Whimsy and Stars studio
I combined these three images for my card, aren't they so cute and perfect together celebrating...they are Birthday Wishes Girl, Birthday Chickie and Ballerina Teddy...I coloured them with distress inks, glittered them up to within an inch of their lives and teamed them up with these lush Prima Sparkling Sweet paper pad papers from Bunny Zoe's...the sentiment is from Lily of the Valley I think and I finished with a ribbon and some pearls on their crowns...the sketch is from Sugar Creek Hollow challenge and I'm also entering this for the Spoon Full of Sugar A right royal knees up challenge too (I hope they count as they have crowns on)...I'm trying hard to get some blog hopping done before the weekend but you will have to forgive me if I don't catch up until then as I still have all the posts to schedule yet and pack and shop...ooohhhh who said holidays were a rest lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and keep your fingers crossed for me that the hairdresser is better as the busted sofa look is not good for a woman my age is it

So soft and sparkly. You do make beautiful cards even when the gremlins are about!

Tricia said...

Mina, I *love* your Whimsy and Stars card! I had to come over from Mabelle's blog to tell you so. The soft colors are just lovely and the glitter is the PERFECT embellishment. It looks like a fairy tale!!

Michelle said...

oh so sweet - love how you combined all the images! I need to learn how to do that (assuming you used a computer program). I also love your coloring. I must admit that I want to try and learn how to color with distress inks. Your creation is just beautiful!

Sharon Basel said...

Mina this is lovely. The soft muted tones of your card are wonderful - those papers are beautiful together and I like the pearls on the crown. Thanks for sharing this with us at Sugar Creek Hollow.
