a bit of wind and a real doll...

Good morning everyone, thanks for all the wincing and good wishes for yesterday, my knee is fine, thank goodness for super pointy scissors, see I knew I kept them that pointed for a reason, there is just a little hole and a teeny bruise is all, so shucks no scar to show...ohhhh and thanks Jane for the suggestion of wrapping myself up in cotton wool, but knowing me I would probably end up allergic to cotton wool lol...my Sister and family came down this afternoon, wow her kids just get more fantastic every time I see them and I love love love those Auntie hugs...don't get me wrong they aren't angels and the little girl, sorry I cant tell you her name as her Mum doesn't want me to too and its her choice after all, has the cheekiest little grin, she so reminds me of my gorgeous Daughter when she was small, cheeky but so adorable, you just wanna hug her to hear her giggle...right onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Colour Create challenge, this time i our fabulous Julies turn and she chose a stunner of a colour combo of Turquoise, Deep Pink and Ivory and we have an added option of adding glitter, like you have to ask me to add glitter lol...I love this stunning combo and knew which paper I would use as I found this sheet a few days ago, isn't it gorgeous, its from a huge paper pad I bought ages ago, I think it was from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and I will see if I can fish out the name for you...how amazingly beautiful is this Green Lady I bought from A Day for Daisies, of course a few more jumped into my basket too...I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced the Turquoise paper, the hair I did a little differently than normal as I wanted it to look artificial not like real hair, I think she looks like a beautiful doll...I wrapped around a cream satin ribbon and added a big bow, I finished with a little bit of glitter on her hair ornaments and some sparkly butterflies, a dragonfly...the fab sketch is from Inspirational Card Sketches challenge and I'm also entering this for the Try it on Tuesday challenge and Papertake Weekly challenge too...its supermarket day with my lovely Dad today, I hope the weather settles down a bit as it blew a hurricane last night, I thought the roof was coming off at 4am, had visions of running around collecting my bits from the lawn lol...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and watch out for that wind

But I did colour the image. lol. I'll get it up soon. Lee x

Sarah said...

Hi Mina, just over having a quick wander. Wow beautiful cards - but this is my favourite. It's just gorgeous, wonderful colours and that image is stunning!

Hope your knee is recovering nicely. I think my worse crafting accident is something that happened to my daughter not me! She was playing with my cropadile and I managed to punch a hole in her finger. I took of half her nail and a lump of skin - she's only 4 and so a trip to the local A&E was called for. Poor thing was very brave, but the cropadile is now up out of harms way!
