urgent plastic surgery needed...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and enjoying the lovely soggy weather. unless your lucky enough to live somewhere warm then enjoy your sunny weather...aren't our children good to us Mums, my Daughters washing machine broke down so of course I got a text asking can I use your machine please Mum, course you can I replied...but I don't remember texting back that I would wash and dry the big bag of washing you bring down, fold it and make sure it's ready for you tomorrow lol...well I suppose that's what Mums are for aren't they, well I am anyway...I had to go to the supermarket for washing powder of course and my lovely Dad met someone he hadn't seen for years and was chatting away while I packed the bags, then strolling over the guy said, oh is this your wife, I was gobsmacked...I obviously need plastic surgery urgently so any phone numbers for surgeons or gift vouchers for the same guy would be gratefully accepted lol...oooohhhh and my Dad was the one who said indignantly 'shes my Daughter not my wife' lol...anyway onto my card for today, how stunningly beautiful is this Crafts and Me digi stamp she is called Autumn and is from the new November release, I used her for a Christmas card though as she works perfectly in this colour doesn't she...I coloured her with distress inks and her dress is coloured with one of the new Winter distress inks called Iced Spruce, beautifully soft isn't it, of course there is wings and its a wintry card so there had to be loads of glittery stuff didn't there...the papers I bought from a local shop at the weekend but didn't realise until I used them but there isn't any name or writing or anything on them so I haven't a clue who they are by but if I find out I will let you know...I finished with a huge organza bow and a couple of Anita's glitteration snowflakes...the fab sketch is from Stamp with Fun challenge and I'm also entering this for the Top Tip Tuesday challenge, Fab N Funky challenge and the Stamps & Fun challenge too...there's a new Dunelm Mill store opening today in town so we are off for a mooch I will report back if I find anything crafty I cant manage without...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

Mornin' Mina...oh dear-supermarket episode. I know how you feel...I went to a restaurant with a friend on a very blustery day. The waiter said Good afternoon madam to my friend. And good afternoon...er...um to me!Hmmm...Anyway what a beautiful card. Lovely design and shading as always.

You must have a really young looking dad. Your card is gorgeous. Shirley

Squirrel x said...

Oh hun, he might have meant that your dad was a lucky so-and-so to have such a young woman on his arm! I was asked at the weekend if my best friend's 10 year old son was my GRANDson. I nearly exploded on the spot! Gorgeous card babes, that angel is beautiful and your colours are fab. Brilliant as always. Hugs, an old Squirrel xx

Diane said...

Oooooh, Mina! What a gorgeous card - love the image and the delicate way you've coloured her!
I think your Dad's old pal was playing safe - think how bad he would have felt if he'd said 'Is this your daughter?' and you had been his wife! Anyway, I've seen your photo and you're looking good girl, no need at all for any surgical help!

Chrissy said...

Wow!! she is beautiful Mina...love her wings and the sleeves on her dress...the sparkle is gorgeous...

Poor you...but it could have been a compliment....at my Nanas funeral a man who knew my mother[nolene] came up and was talking to her. then asked me " are you Nolenes sister"..lol...gee thanks heaps..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Сказочная и таинственная получилась открыточка!

Linda said...

Plastic surgeon? I'd like to have a magic body suit that sucked out all the old, puffy, wrinkled stuff. Just step in, zip up and nap for 30 minutes. Then unzip and wallah.....
Your glittering looks perfect. Iced Spruce and Stormy Sky are a beautiful combination for the dress.

Hi Mina,
Love the story about the washing - so typical. I showed William your post and he sympathises - all our married life I have been taken for his daughter (he says it's living with me that aged him)
Your card is gorgeous. I love the image and the soft colouring.
Hugs,
Fiona x

Enjoy the rest of today Mina :-)

arjette said...

Hahaha I'm sorry I don't have any telephone numbers for you.... but I had a good laugh reading your story.... allthough I can understand that you didn't laugh....
Your card is awesome Mina, as allways!!!

gr. arjette.

Sandy said...

Wow Mina, your dad must be very young looking for his age!! You don't need the telephone numbers now LOL.
Love your gorgeous fairy, beautifully coloured - a stunning card,
Sandy

Jane said...

OMG!!! Hope you whacked that man round the head with your soap powder box...cheeky 'BLEEP!!!!'
Your angel is quite stunning...can't keep up with all my 'Wants' n' 'Needs' xx

Carla S. said...

Funny story, Mina! You don't need any surgery! They just thought your Dad was lucky enough to have a beautiful young wife! Your card is absolutely stunning! The image is amazing and as always, you've brought her to life with your outstanding coloring!

Jan said...

Absoloutely delicious card.... I love the softness of the distress ink and her beautiful shimmery wings and sleeves.
Your post today really made me laugh....... firstly, you are absoloutely right, that's what Mums do (however old the daughter is!) and secondly, I dont think you need worry.... judging from your photograph you certainly dont need surgery and your dad is a lucky man to have such a beautiful daughter.

cockney blonde said...

OMG, I've just finished laughing at your tale. I too am the fairy godmother when it comes to washing which evolves into ironing and folding too for #1 son who lives on his own now....As for the wife/daughter thing. I can remember a few months I asked a client of mine (not in that sense) if the gentleman was his Father....Oh no, he said, just a friend and he's younger than me....I made a hasty exit, lol.
BTW, love the card, x

Janette said...

Gorgeous card Mina, beautiful colouring....

My daughter would do exactly the same thing Mina, and has infact...lol...like you say, thats what Mums are for....your Dad is a hoot....and you look fab, so no worries....xxx

Evil Edna said...

Beautiful card, just wonderful. I once got shouted at for being gay when I was infact walking arm and arm down the street with my mother.... that person is now a slug and lives in my compost bin....EE

June Nelson said...

Mina this is just so beautiful the image is fantastic and gorgeously coloured. Its the most beautiful card xxxxx

Shazza said...

LOL at your story Mina, maybe she just had bad eyesight??
Beautiful card, love those paper and the image is just gorgeous x

Frea said...

Hi Mina, you have me sitting here laughing out loud behind my computer!! That is sooo funny!! Comfort yourself sweetie, his eyesight was probably terrible LOL!! Love this card, such a sweet fairy. Have you ever seen The Dark Crystal, ancient I know, but Jim Henson made it at the time. There were Gelflings in that puppet movie and they had the same features as this fairy, lovely!! Such a graceful image. Hugs, Frea

Miss Emerald said...

I love elves! Your card is fabulous, magical, fairy! I loved her at first sight! Congratulations!

D K Crafts said...

Hi Mina. Really sweet card. Love the colours and great image. Whenever my washing machine breaks my mum does the same. Hope you didn't spend too much at Dunelm. Looked very busy when I was passing. Donna

CraftyLoops said...

Your Daddys friend must have thought he's got himself a young thing to have on his arm! Love this card, the image is really beautiful. Love her sparkly wings. Lee xx

Sherri said...

Oh, how gorgeous she is! Your perfect coloring just brings her to life as always. Don't worry about the comments. I have been mistaken for my dad's wife too and he is 89!

Lorraine said...

Your card and image are gorgeous, Mina! And NO, you don't need plastic surgery. You know men - some of them have mates/dates young enough to be their daughter or granddaughters sometimes, lol. Hmmm...then again, you might be insulted him thinking you were some young floosy, lol!

Rufus said...

1) the old friend was thinking your Dad was a sly 'ole dog to have gotten such a young wife
2) your Dad is obviously in great shape and still looking much younger than his age
3) old friend just came from the eye Dr's and his eyes were all dilated and he couldn't see a blessed thing!
Lovely card today, love the soft colors and the background paper is very pretty!
Thanks to all involved for the giggle!
