the look of love...

Good morning everyone, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend planned, we are off shopping and with a lot of luck and parking I might just get the rest of my Christmas shopping list, I'm finally getting the hang of my camera now if only the weather would just get a bit better I might get some brighter ones...this is very like the card except the colours are a bit brighter in real life...I will do a recipe post for my chicken and veg soup as soon as I can and thank you all so much for your kind comments on my photos...I'm having trouble again with my ISP, its BT so if any of you UK crafter's can recommend someone else as a provider that would be brilliant as BT is making me scream and yell at my poor little laptop every day, I know its them now as my TV has gone to pot too so they are out of here for sure...right onto my card for today, how amazingly stunning is this beautiful In The Manger digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil, I love it to bits and it is stunning to colour, but then which Mo's image isn't...Mo has really excelled herself with this beauty though, look at the expression on that beautiful angel, a look of pure love...I coloured it with distress inks and please take note...no glitter...I know its shocking but no fainting please lol...the stunning gold embossed paper is from the Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble 6x6 paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, gorgeous isn't it, I used some gold flecked cardstock for edging and the star too and a fantastic wide lush ribbon to finish...the fab sketch is from Pink {INK} sketch challenge and I'm also entering this for the DYSU challenge and Stampactular Sunday challenge too...I'm off to get dressed bright and early as I want to hit the shops before the crowds (well hopefully anyway lol), whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

CraftyLoops said...

Awwwww Mina, this is such a sweet wee card. I just love this image. Mina, we are with O2 and we've been with them for nearly 3 years and touch wood, we have never had a problem with the internet. And its very strong and doesnt crash or drop bandwidth at particular times of the day. But thats just my opinion of them. I wondered with us being in NI would we have problems but thankfully 3 years on we have had wonderful service from O2. Enjoy your shopping. I really need to start mine!! Lee xx

They either sort it or I'm gan back to AOL...its a pain in the bum..... To be on the net noo he has plugged in the AOL router for a bit lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
Sorry for my canny long rant lol.

Kat said...

Gorgeous card Mina. Sweet image, wonderful colouring and beautiful DP, love it.

My ISP is the Post Office. I have my phone and broadband with them and get only one bill as they have bought lines from BT. Probably not the cheapest but the fact that you can speak to someone real in just a few seconds makes it worthwhile. None of this pressing countless different numbers and being kept waiting for ages. The last time I had a problem the engineer was out really quickly, much quicker than when our phone was with BT!!

Loz ♥ said...

aaaww, seriously this would have to be one of the most adorable images I have ever seen! x

Rea said...

Mina, what a beauty. This image is so sweet, I can feel the excitement this little angel feels as he gazes at the Son of God. I love that you didn't do glitter. Great job on coloring with distress. The subtle details on this card really pull it together and make it stand out. Hugs

Rufus said...
