sssssssshhhhhhhh dont tell him...

Good morning everyone I hope you all have a brilliant weekend planned, I would love to know what your doing...go on you know you want to make everyone jealous lol...my lovely Dads hand is load's better, it turns out his hand is infected and because he walks with two crutches the pressure was making it much worse and causing it to swell really badly, I must admit though I would feel much happier if he had x-ray, do you think if I go to the hospital and tell them it will put my mind at rest they would do it...no maybe not lol...I had a fab late night shop with my darling Daughter, although the rain never stopped and it was freezing, I must admit though I was so shocked as the shops were so so quiet, there were a lot of shops with just us doing any shopping, a sign of the times I guess, I remember a few years ago you could hardly get moved on late night Christmas shopping Friday's here...so sad isn't it...we did manage a festive Starbucks coffee at least, it was nice but I find them a little sickly, I love good coffee and think to add all those flavours and sprinkle bits is a waste...right now onto my card for today, I have to swear you to secrecy though as this is my Christmas card for my Phil so ssssssshhhhh not a word, I thought he would love this Sassy Studio Designs Reindeer Games, shes a sweetie isn't she, I coloured her with distress inks and used my favourite colour combo of red and green but with a little twist of modern I think, I haven't a clue who this paper is by as the name strip was missing, but I like it, the lush ribbon is from The Pretty little ribbon shop and is called Red Large Polka Dot 15mm Ribbon, I'm entering this for the Sketch N Stash challenge, my stash is this beauty and this fab paper which I have had for ages, Papertake weekly challenge and The Cutie Pie challenge too...we are out for coffee today and you never know maybe even a little mooch too...whatever your up to today have a fantastic festive time

p.s. all you Saturated Canary fans pop on over to their blog and have a look at the competition they are running, I have entered so would love a vote from one or two of you, only if you want to of course, or even vote for one of the other as there is some amazing work there...thanks

Not many plans for me this weekend other than work this afternoon and my neighbour coming round to give a final coat of paint to the kithen walls tomorrow!
I work in retail and althought those who are shopping are spending lots of money, we have not been as busy as normal for saying there are only a few days left!
Wonderful card, I won't tell Phil :o)

Linda said...

Did you really color those ribbons with the bells one them? That was quite an undertaking with using the red. Amazing. I think you have mastered coloring with the dreaded red.

Glad your Dad's hand is better. Sorry, but I love Starbucks sticky drinks. When it comes to regular coffee, Dunkin Donuts is my fav. I am finishing up some wrapping, making a couple of last minute gifts this weekend. Expecting a visit from my niece and her darling daughters from Denver. Quiet weekend before the invasion next weekend. LOL

Hope you have a fab weekend!
Linda

CraftyLoops said...

Im very much with you where the coffee is concerned. What wrong with a nice cup of strong coffee? Why does it need all the bells, whistles and syrupy bits I will never know!! We were at the Outlet yesterday evening and it was like a ghost town! I couldnt believe it. Though I get the feeling that on Boxing Day it will be a different story. In one way its good because you dont have to struggle around the crowds but in another, the crowds is what lets you know its Christmas! Catch 22 eh? Anyway, your card is really beautiful Mina, Im sure Phil will love it. Lee xx

Sheila in Cyprus said...

WOW, this is fabulous. My hubby would love the image, maybe its his age! Ha ha.....
No Christmas shopping for me, the Grandchildren have all been given money, its so expensive sending pressies to UK from here. I am off now to have my breakfast in the sun and then later on I am off to vote (for the first time) in the local elections. Its to elect a new Mucktar (Mayor) for the village. Hope I put the X in the right box because it will be 'all Greek to me'. Love Sheila x

Hi Mina. Gorgeous card. Love the colours, papers and polka dot ribbon. Such a great image, Phil will love it. Town is really empty and no atmosphere. Even if you are not buying anything, it is nice to watch and listen but this year there is nothing. Hope your dads hand improves. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Donna

Hey Mina, isn't that the pregnant pinup girl!?! Ha! Ha! Need I say more,ha!ha! I think there is a little vixen inside of you, but that's OK, I have one inside of me, most people don't know it. Ha! This card is so cute, love the fun colors. I have had a great weekend. Yesterday, which was Saturday for me, I got to go see Trans Siberian Orchestra, in concert. It was so awesome. Sending a big hug.
