the beauty of Summer...

Good morning everyone how are you all and are you up to anything exciting today, I will be home now hopefully and we are going out this evening to dinner with our darling Daughter who is celebrating her 26th birthday today...I still don't feel old enough to have a Daughter that age you know where truthfully I'm old enough to have a 36yr old lol....sssshhhhh don't tell anyone though...it shows I'm getting old anyway as our Daughter is getting a tattoo from us for her birthday, she already has a very delicate white one on her foot which is a kinda stylised scroll, this one will be peach and a teeny tiny branch of flowers on the side of her hand...my Dad said does she not want something 'normal' and all I could think was how I would love one too lol...mid life crisis maybe although according to my Sister I'm well passed middle age (gee thanks Sis lol)...right enough waffle my card today is for the Sugar Nellie DT and this is the stunningly beautiful Summer, isn't she amazing, I coloured her with distress inks and I finally think my colouring mojo is coming back...someone remind me never to go away without my inks to have a paint please...two weeks without colouring is too long I think...I teamed Summer up with Basicgrey Marjolaine papers, I love this collection...the sketch is from the fab Sunday Sketch and stamp challenge...have a fantastic Saturday everyone

I had to chuckle when you said having a 26 year old daughter makes you feel old. My Grandson is 26 so I daren't think about how old I feel!
A beautiful card Mina, I adore that image :o)

Your coloring of herhair amazes me. Beautiful Mina.

Happy Birthday to your daughter and enjoy your dinner.

Mina please grow up. You are not OLD. My youngest child is 41!! Now that is REALLY OLD!

Hugs from an old lady to a sweet babe! PS Get the tatoo!

Lorraine said...

Whew, I'm finally catching up with blogland, lol. I loved seeing all of your latest card creations, girl, and this one is just gorgeous! Your coloring rocks and love the design. You're only as old as you feel - wait, I feel really old & tired these days, lol - ha! But I have thoughts about getting a tattoo. At least your daughter has delicate ones and does not want a whole sleeve of tattoos, lol. I hope you had a nice trip and have a really nice dinner!
