oooohhhhh guess what I got...

Good morning everyone did you all have a wonderful Saturday?...we stayed in town for ages...well er...I think it just felt like ages it was actually only about an hour, hated the crowds so we had lunch then left and decided Phil will take a days holiday so we don't have to go weekend christmas shopping...sounds like a good plan to me...but I did get a parcel yesterday morning...I grabbed it nearly taking the skin off the poor postman's hands lol...then while doing my happy dance I ripped it open because I knew what it was...all six of the limited edition Tim Holtz Autumn and Winter colour distress inks....I bought them from Sugar Nellie but I think Karen has sold out I'm afraid...cant wait to colour with them, my colouring hand is twitching as I type...will show you the new colours during the week I promise...my card for today is using this gorgeous little Kisses digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil no one else but the wonderful Mo can draw like this, I couldn't resist that face she is so beautiful isn't she...I coloured her with distress inks and found half a sheet of this amazing pink double sided paper from Prima Flight of Fancy Collection...this is called Blooming Happiness ...when I was making this card I knew exactly which sketch I would use as I wanted to keep the design simple so she shone...all I needed to finish my card was a thin satin ribbon and three charms with the holes cut off...the fab sketch is from Tuesday morning sketches challenge and I'm also entering this for the Cutie Pie challenge and Creative Card Crew challenge too...I think we are going out to lunch today depending on how Phil feels as he has the sniffles the poor lamb but I might sneak some colouring time in before we go just to try out the new colours of course lol...whatever your up to today have a wonderful Sunday

You are amazing at colouring with distress inks Mina. I tried it once and, well put it this way.....the inks lived up to their name and my poor stamped image looked rather distressed at my feeble attempt at colouring with the inks. lol. This card is so beautiful, what a cute wee face. I just want to grab her wee cheeks. Have fun with your new inks. Lee x
