a friend called Freddie...

Good morning everyone...before I tell you about today's card I wanted to explain why I haven't been myself over the last few weeks...I have been a bit subdued and not myself because of something that happened in my crafting life, something very unpleasant and so upsetting it knocked me on my bum, I wont bother you all by explaining it to you but I just wanted to say with Phil's help and a very good friends advice I have picked myself up and am coming out fighting, I dusted myself off and I'm back on form, I will also be answering your emails as usual now too as I haven't been, so please keep sending them I'm happy to help any way I can as always...I'm sorted now and back with a vengeance lol...we had a nice day yesterday nothing exciting but it was lovely to spend a day you don't usually together, did that make sense at all?...but I knew what I meant lol...onto my card for today which is using another of the stunning Fairy Glen release from Sugar Nellie called Faye and Freddie...how cute is this little darling on her toadstool with her frog friend...I must admit I have loved using this new release, they are fab to colour...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with this amazing Echo Park paper from the A Walk in the Park collection called Playful Stripes, the green is the reverse...I added some of the new lush flowers I bought from Charmed Cards and Crafts, the little glittery ones and the leaves are from the Petaloo Cream velvet hydrangea pack and the lush pink one is of course a Prima...gorgeous aren't they...I finished with a ceramic sentiment from my stash...the lush sketch is from Inspirational Card Sketches and I'm also entering it for the Sweet Stampin challenge too....ooooohhhhh did you see I won the fabulous Chris's candy yesterday, I was gobsmacked...wwwwoooohhhhoooo papers to play with...I'm having a crafting day today a bit of play time...whatever your up to today I have you have a brilliantly happy one

CraftyLoops said...

Oh my goodness Mina, Im sorry to hear that something happened to make you feel a bit down recently. Just so you know......I GOT MY PAPERS!!!! Yeah!!! Thank you so very much Mina. Im so delighted with it all. And not only that.......Lee the "Non Card Maker" didnt have the envelope open two minutes and I made a card! Its my wee brothers birthday today and I was going to do the unthinkable and buy a card. But as soon as I saw your beautiful papers, a card had to be made. Thank you so much Mina, I really appreciate all those gorgeous papers. Your card is really beautiful and the flower is stunning. Lee xx

Janette said...

Hi Mina, I just don't understand this at all, I know you don't want to say to much, but WHY would anyone be nasty or hurtful to you, and it must have been bad to knock your socks off......I feel bad for you, none of us Blog to get insulted or hurt...so whoever did or said it, they want bloody shooting, it's disgusting and I hope your OK now, really I do.....
I love your card, it's as sweet as ever...take care.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

Oh how darling and beautiful Mina!! I just love your coloring and the colors you chose!! Sweet image!!

I am so sorry about what has been said or done to you that has upset you so. Blogger is suppose to be a friendly place where we can converse and share with others who share our passion. Not at all to be hurtful. Thinking of you!

I want you to know that I always enjoy your posts and creations. You are amazing.

hugs,
Chris

Your card is very nice!

I love to read your posts and to see your cards.

Katina said...

Another beautiful make Mina. Again you've chosen a gorgeous image and those flowers look so beautiful!

I'm glad you feel better and got over what happened. I had a horrible incident a while ago that knocked my confidence horribly. It was a really nasty email from someone I didn't know but they wanted to tell me exactly what they thought of me! I still get upset when I think about it.

Jacqueline (Sjakkie) said...

Beautiful card Mina, so sweet and so wonderful. I'll hope your feel better know.
Hugs Jacqueline

Lorraine said...

So pretty, Mina, and I love that sweetie image! I hope you're okay after whatever nasty incident happened. Just remember that there are a lot of kooks and nasties out there - in blogland too - so don't let their comments get to you. Some people just want others to be as miserable as they are/feel. I like the saying "I can tell the way you feel about you by the way you treat me." Oh and my son was in a nasty mood (being after a long day of school) and refused to let me take halloween photos of him last night. argh...will try to see if I can coax him into putting it back on for some pics - he hates the camera, lol.

susiestacey said...

Hi Mina...

Your card is absolutely beautiful (as always - you are so talented!)

And I don't know what happened to you, but after reading all the comments above, you must know we are all with you... As I've said before, your posts always lift my spirits and make me smile (and they're taking some lifting at the moment as I've been quite down in the dumps lately myself). I love to read of your days out with your dad, and days with your family around.

Anyway...... PFFFFFFFFFFTTT to whoever upset you...

Big Hugs
Christine x
