better late than never...

Good morning everyone, how are you all doing?...I hope your all well as there's a lot of colds and flu going around...I was just having a think about my Mum this morning and thanks to some of your fab comments was thinking about all those wonderfully wise and daft things our Mums say to us that we don't cherish until its too late sometimes...do you have any wise or funny things your Mums said to you as I would love to know...I woke up yesterday morning to two big deep scratches on the inside of my upper arm, bleeding and everything...now I have been known to sleep walk, which is something Phil worries about when hes not here, I think he feels one night I will take a dive of the top of the stairs or go for a walk outside and has visions of me tramping down the road in my jimjams...I cant figure out where these gouges have come from or where I must have caught my arm, twice...weird or what?, maybe it has something to do with the full moon...its a day for philosophy today as I would love to know how my Dad can ring and ask if I will go with him for bread and coming back with his loaf and three bags of shopping for me when I needed nothing at all...now that's even weirder isn't it lol...anyway enough waffle today's card is late it should have been posted yesterday but I couldn't get on to post it and had to wait until now...its for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge, wow thank you all so much for entering last month for my choice of lace, we had an incredible 457 entries...the challenge this month is Fairies...I really wanted to use this fantastic Michelle Perkett studio Flower Goddess digi so decided with a little help from a Martha Stewart butterfly punch I would add some wings to this beauty to make her a fairy, I coloured her with distress ink and made some of the flowers 3d...the beautifully bright and summery papers are from the Wild Rose Studio 6x6 paper pad Cherry Cupcake of course you can get the papers and image from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with some lush satin ribbon and a satin ribbon sentiment with a few teeny punched butterflies...the fab sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge and I'm also entering it for the Stamp Something something punched challenge too...when you have time pop on over to our challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT's lush work...I haven't a clue what I'm up to today except I'm not going shopping because I really don't want another three bags of shopping...have a great one everyone

Hi Mina, maybe you were crafting in your sleep...lots of sharp objects. My Mom's idea of "words of wisdom" is dont eat yellow snow. Hee Hee, hope you get better ones. Your card is gorgeous!!! I just love blue and yellow together and your coloring is fabulous. ~jeni :)

D K Crafts said...

Hi Mina. Beautiful colours on this card, sweet image and great layout. Sounds really weird what happened to your arm. As for mums, mine always had a saying for most things and I find myself repeating them to the girls. Donna

Gorgeous card Mina, love the delicate colours you use.

Sherri said...

Another beauty! Such delicate colors & beautiful bow! How strange about your arm. Do you sleep with a cat or dog whose claws might have scratched you? Take care!

Barb said...

Oh, Mina, this is so beautiful! I like the 3D effect with the flowers and the colors you used. Great idea using the butterfly for wings! Pure genius! You mentioned advice your mom gave you. When my mom turned 60 I put together a book using quotes from all of us kids as well as her friends. Her name is Helen so I called the book "Helenisms". Nineteen years later she still has that book sitting on her coffee table! The one thing I always remember her telling me is "Pretty is as pretty does." That and "are you still in there coloring? It's after midnight!" Some things never change! Thanks for your note today. I'm doing well, just had a period of burnout I guess.

Barb xoxo

Lorraine said...

Such a pretty card, Mina! Now you've got me wondering about my mom's sayings. I would love to document it - once my brain is working, lol. And two deep scratches?! Not to sound weird or anything, but have you ever thought of getting your house blessed? (of gremlins and the other one that hurt your arm in your sleep, too, was it?) If you are the one truly doing it to yourself in your sleep, then I'm curious to know what the heck you dream about and yeah, you should be locked down, lol! Take care of yourself, girlie!!!

Stressed Stamper said...

Oh I love this - perfect and wow - what a bow - love how you have lifted out her flowers

You are producing a card a day and I just don't know how you do that and have every one of them so darn perfect. This one's a treat. She has a great nose! Lovely colour work and clever addition of wings! Hugs, Lesley
