ever wished you hadnt got out of bed?...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy today...boy did I have one of those days yesterday...the days that should definitely be spent in bed...everything I touched fell to bits, I tried my very very hardest and everything I tried to make went wrong, I even fell down the stairs (just the last two so nothing more than a bruised ego) and stepped off a chair when I was changing a light bulb (I know not a good idea when your having an off day), I even set fire to my toasted sandwich lunch...after that I just sat huddled up on the sofa just in case anything else happened lol...oh well today can only get better (maybe I shouldn't have said that)...anyway onto one of the cards I managed to make and even though I'm not happy with it I thought I would show you anyway as I love this little fella, isn't he just a fab image for a boys card, hes from The Stampfairy and is called Tommy Sports1...as soon as I saw this paper at the weekend I knew I would use it for Tommy, its perfect for him isn't it...its from Echo Parks Sweet Summertime collection and is called Citrus Circles...I coloured this little fella with distress inks and paper pieced his hat and jersey with the reverse of the paper...I finished with some string, ribbon and buttons from my stash...the lush sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp...I'm taking no chances today and heading out its too dangerous staying indoors lol...whatever your up to today have a safe and sound one everyone

Smiles... Oh dear Mina.... I do hope today is better! But you did make me smile - why do we always smile at someone's misfortune? LOL! One of my fav programmes is 'you've been framed' - I giggle like mad at people falling over and hurting themselves!!
This is a fab card.... such nice bright paper and I love how you've coloured that image - and yes, it is perfect for a boy!

He's just adorable, Mina, and I think the card is perfect despite the hard time you had with it. I hope today proves to be safer and more productive for you! Thankfully, I haven't had a day like that in some time and hope I don't for a while longer.

Take care!

Oh my lord, Mina, I just LOVE that little boy image to bits! So stinkin' cute! And you've colored him perfectly - even paper pieced him! As to ever having wished you hadn't got out of bed? YES every day, lol! Hope your day went a lot smoother than yesterday!

Linda said...

Mina, Mina, Mina. You must listen GF, someone was telling you NOT to get out of bed. On days like that grab a cup of tea, a good book and "hunker down" for the day. You are dangerous to tempt fate like that. Ha Ha

This little fella is cute. Like the bright color scheme too.

Jannie said...

hi Mina this is so beautiful ! I love the cute image and gorgeous detail too.
Have a nice day

Hugs Jannie
