its ok there's colouring today...

Good morning everyone how are you all, I hope your all well and staying free of all the virus going around...is the plural virus or virus's, no that doesn't look right at all...I went for coffee with my Dad yesterday and I don't know if its the recession getting to people or just the time of year but everyone seemed to be very grumpy and short tempered, I even had a disagreement with the lady in the coffee shop, she was very nasty and cheeky when the hot water machine was broken and I dared to ask her very nicely if she would boil a kettle for my Dads tea, you would think I had asked her to walk to a well and draw some water before doing it...but I gave as good as I got lol...I'm dreading doing my Dads shopping with him today in case I get in a punch up...oh well at least I have my Dad and his two crutches at my back lol...my card for today is back to my usual colouring, and I was having a little look through my digis while I was backing them up and found this gorgeous Christmas teddy bear from Rick St Denise, isn't he gorgeous, I think its that look on his adorable little face, so happy looking...I coloured him with distress inks, oh by the way someone asked me what I used for shading on white, I have a Marvy grey water colouring pen which I use and I use the Pumice stone distress ink when I want something softer than grey, which is what I used on the bear, would it help anyone if I listed the colours I used, well when I remember what I have used anyway lol...the fabulous paper I used is a double sided one from Echo Park Wintertime collection and is called Falling Snowflakes, I used a gorgeous gold thread wired Brown Gingham ribbon for my bow from Bunny Zoe's...this is lush ribbon and really holds it shape because of the wiring, the gorgeous organza with the Merry Christmas on it was a gift from a mate many moons ago...I finished my card with a wreath charm...the fab sketch is from Sketch N Stash challenge and I'm also entering the Allsorts challenge I'm also entering this for the Wild Rose Studio celebration blog hop...right I'm off to get the armour on for the supermarket...take cover everyone lol

Good for you, Mina. Stand up for yourself. (Especially when you have your Dad's crutches behind you!)

Love the coloring on the Teddy. Will be looking forward to hearing how the shopping trip went...if the armor was necessary or not! I think that people are getting a bit more testy...but you'd think that the ones that have a job would want to keep it!!

Sarpreet said...

This is gorgeous Mina, love the layout and colours. And like how you colour the white bear! I personally feel listing the colours do help, and I wouldnt have thought to use Pumice stone! Such a cute card.

What a horrible woman, you only made a valid point - boil the kettle! Lol, i hope you got home in one piece after the shopping.
