bottoms up...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a fabulous weekend, I would love to know what you were up to...just because I'm nosey and love hearing what you have done...I'm still struggling with my internet and although I managed to comment on a few blogs last night it wasn't a teeny fraction of what I wanted to though...its so frustrating, I can get on blogs although it takes ages but commenting just takes forever and although I can see your fab makes I cant comment...I'm going to ring them again today and give them a good telling off, heads are gonna roll....come on now a girl cant do without her hopping can she...we had a lovely lunch yesterday then had a little mooch in Boots, I even bought some long needed make up replacements...did you know you shouldn't keep make up longer than 6 months...no neither did I...so I replaced my 2 year old blusher at long last and even bought a new lipstick, I'm one of those people who doesn't even put the bin out without her face on lol...and we had a little look at new tv's, I think we need a HD one but its a minefield and we haven't even decided on size so it may be a while yet although before Christmas might be nice...right now onto today's card, how fantastic is this Mo's Digital Pencil cutie, shes called Big Chair and there's a boy version too...I loved colouring this stunning image it is so lifelike and it so reminded of my Daughter when she was small, so independent and never wanted help lol...the stunningly bright paper is a double sided one from Echo Park but I cant find the name strip yet but I will find it sometime today and let you know what collection its from...the frill around the image is a doily cut up and ruffled around it and I finished with some lush coloured ribbons and a couple of pearls...the fab sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday...I'm having a colouring day today as I have a pile of beautiful images just crying out for a bit of colour, I love those kinds of days don't you...whatever your up to today have a good one

Janette said...

Hi Mina, Oh this is so cute, that little girl reminds me so much of Carla when she was small, always had her bottom in the air somehow..lol....did know about the make-up, dread to think how old some of mine is..lol...as for Sunday, it was a day of waking up to 2 cold little bodies jumping into bed with me and giggling away, from there on it was kids all the way, lots of fun though.xx

heidy said...

Love that little bum! Quiet weekend for sure here. I made Tennessee Pumpkin Bread, watched some football, and got ready for Thanksgiving. Having 10 - 12 for dinner on Thursday.

Oh yes and I had the "time to move in with me talk with my Mom". She is as stubborn and independent as the little girl in your card. I finally gave her an ultimatum, it's my house or the nursing home. Little bugger, she called me bossy and said I was bossy when I was a baby and now I am real bossy as an adult. I think she will choose the nursing home over me. LOL
