pink and girly and no more beasties....

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and enjoying some sunshine...well I did go out yesterday and just managed to get back in through the door when the heavens opened...see told you if I went out it would tiddle down, but I did manage to get some blogging done last night and I really enjoyed it too...many apologies to all those people still running around screaming from last night when I showed you all my wee beastie from the craft room...I think it must have something to do with the warm weather as I had some cereal last night and guess what I found in it...an earwig...I have a thing about earwigs, when I was young we always came to Ireland to stay with our Gran and I remember getting up one morning, hurrying to get dressed and pushing my foot into my shoe feeling something in there and when I tipped it up three earwigs fell out...I had the screaming abdabs and ran around my Grans house completely freaked out so since then earwigs make me squirm, so you can imagine how far I threw the cereal bowl although I wish I had got rid of the earwig before I threw it as I couldn't find it after...uuuurrrrrggghhhhhh...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge over at Colour Create challenge, this weeks its our lovely Julies choice of Pink, White and Green with the added option of Cooking (oops I forgot) don't you just love this colour combo its one of my favs...I used this stunning little Nellie C's Flying frog stamp from the new release from Nellie Snellen, I coloured it with distress inks and of course had to add some glitter glue didn't I...well fairies and glitter glue are just meant to be together aren't they...the fab papers are more from the new release Magnolia Sweet Rainbow 6x6 papers these are Dark Pink Rainbow flower and Light Pink Rainbow Flower, the sentiment is a stamp from the Kaisercraft mini stamp set - Friends set (these sets are amazing value), these are all from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and I finished with some lace, ribbon and flowers and punched leaves from my stash, I'm entering this for the Cardmadfairy digi days challenge which is Oh so girly and the Fussy and Fancy Friday summer challenge too...right I'm going to have another craft day today...when you have time pop on over to Colour Create to check out the rest of our wonderful DT's fab creations...have a wonderful creepy crawly free day everyone

I had to chuckle at your 'wee beatie' it's probably more frightened of you than you are of it LOL. Now earwigs and rain beetles are a different matter altogetherm they give me the screaming abdabs, shudder

Poor Mina. I would scream too, but throwing the bowl was not smart because who had to clean up the mess? Maybe your pretty little fairy popped in and cleaned it for you. .)

Hi Mina! Love this card.... and believe it or not, I had that stamp in my hand today - went to a fab craft shop in Skipton, and my lovely OH came over with it in his hand while we were there.... that and another one with the frog on a toadstool... which is the one I opted for! They're lovely!
Oooh and your earwig story reminds me of de-earwig-ing my mum's dahlias when I was young... she used to put jam jars filled with straw upturned onto sticks - and the damn bugs would climb up into the jar, then she would empty and drown them! Eeeuuugh! But at least her dahlias where nice... LOL!

Oh goodness, I'm rattling on now... anyway,,, loved your card - will use my image soon! Ain't my OH wonderful picking stamps for me in a craft shop? lol!

Hugs
Christine x
