a double day and an aaarrrgggghhhhhhhh...

Good morning everyone its a double day today its time for our Mo's Dreamteams Monthly blog Hop and a new challenge at Colour Create challenge too and I wasn't clever enough to combine them..oops...but first my aaaarrrrggggghhhh, still no TV despite spending 3 hours on the phone chasing it up yesterday, I did manage to find out that its in a delivery warehouse about 28 miles from me, I could have walked there by now lol...anyway back to today's cards and a warm welcome to the Mo's Digital Pencil Dreamteams monthly blog hop you should have arrived here from the super talented Debbie's blog, if you didn't you can pop on over Kerttu's blog to start at the beginning (btw don't forget to leave a comment on everyone's blog as there are two $5 vouchers for Mo's digital Pencil to be won, our host this month is the fabulous Kerttu and she chose the brilliant theme of Non traditional Christmas colours, I chose the unusual combo of yellow and grey for mine, it gave me the perfect excuse to use these Authentique Blissful 6x6 paper pad papers again, I love them...I used this stunning Little Elf Pipa for my card and coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced from the same paper pad, I know this really is an unusual combo for Christmas but think it works well with this amazing elf don't you

I finished my card with some yellow and dark grey satin ribbon and a stamped sentiment...your next stop on your hopping along way is the fabulous Pops...enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget your comments as you never know who will be a winner this time...I'm entering this for the Joanna Sheen challenge and Creative Card Crew challenge too...right now for my second card today which is for the new challenge at Colour Create challenge, this time the challenge will last a month because of the Christmas holidays, our fabulous host Sharon chose SILVER, BLUE & WHITE for her combo this time, its perfect for a real frosty feeling to cards

this little sweetie snowflake fairy is from CC Designs but I cant for the life of me remember what shes called, I coloured her with distress inks again and glittered her up too...the beautiful soft papers are from Prima Madeline paper pad, I added some silver glittered snowflakes which is very hard to see and a couple of punched snowflakes too...I finished with some lush pleated organza ribbon and a white satin ribbon too, the lush sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Calender challenge too...phew that was a long one wasn't it, thanks for sticking with me and I promise tomorrows will be much much shorter...my photos still look a bit blurred to me but I have a feeling it might be my glasses need replacing yet again, or maybe I'm just seeing things lol...I'm off out to the supermarket today with my lovely Dad...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and if you have time pop on over to Colour Create to check out the rest of the DT's wonderful work

Hi Mina, the yellow and grey card is fab - so unusual but really works, and the white card is gorgeous - love the icy feel to it. You always make lovely cards. Here's the link to Rebecca's blog although she's not posted anything for couple weeks now as she's been so busy with assessments and rehearsals etc at school. I'll be glad when she breaks up for Christmas lol!
Enjoy your day with your Dad

Andrea said...

Hi Mina - those are 2 more beautiful cards - my favourite has to be the white one though, it is extra beautiful!
I hope your TV arrives soon!
We had a problem with an electrician yesterday - he was supposed to phone me on my mobile when he was on his way, so that I could leave work to get home (I only work 1 mile from home). But when I got home, there was a card to say he'd missed me and a message on my home answerphone telling me when he would arrive!! Great - got to go through the same thing again on Monday now!
Love, Andrea xx

What a naughty blogger I am! My life has bit a bit of a whirlwind of travelling and Tribunal cases and I got behind with everything. I made only 30% of the number of Christmas cards I made last year and last year's weren't enough as it was and my blog commentary went out the window! I have just been scrolling through catching up with your loveliness and I just had to stop to make a comment on these two beautifully different makes. Fabulous fairy so white and snowflakey and I love, love, love your fun paper piecing on Mo's elf! Beautiful Mina! Hugs, Lesley
