peach and green valentine?...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...did I sit around day yesterday then...nope...I had to go into my craft room for a pair of scissors in the early morning and looked at it and thought that's it...went down stairs and armed with bin bags, cleaning clothes and wipes and started to tackle it...6 hours later I was still doing it, besides for a couple of breaks I didn't stop until 10pm last night and it still needs more done...and the moral of this story is 'just don't start it' lol...I have a huge pile of papers to go through and sort, 5 boxes of flowers, sentiments, pearls, gems etc etc to sort out and a massive industrial size tub of ribbons, ever wish you hadn't started something ...I will crack it though as I have promised Jane some photos as proof it has been done...you will get them Jane...right now onto my card for today which is back to my usual colouring ...yesterdays was ssssssoooooo out of my comfort zone and I don't think I will do many without colouring as I miss it too much...this little stunner is of course from The Saturated Canary and she is called Queen of Hearts, isn't she stunning, I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with this amazing Graphic45 paper from the Once Upon a Springtime collection called Primrose cottage, I love love love Graphic45 papers don't you, I could use them every single day...I cut out some of the flowers and used them for embellishments, I used a cream satin ribbon and some lush gold thread and finished with some punched glitter board hearts...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop challenge and I'm also entering it for the Saturated Canary challenge and My Mum's Craft shop challenge...guess where I'm off to today, yep its Thursday so I have to go to the supermarket with my lovely Dad who makes it bearable, I really don't mind doing his shopping with him you know I just like a little moan about it now and then lol...have a fabulous day everyone and I hope wherever you are the sun shines on you

Hanneke said...

Hi Mina, what a lovely card! Love that DP and image, she is so sweet. I can imagine why you miss the coloring if you don't use an image you can color. I think the coloring is usually the most fun part of making a card because you see a black and white image turn into one that's colored and that's so much fun. Just hang in there with cleaning your room, it's worth it :). I do need to organize my crafty things again, maybe in the weekend, lol. Hugs, Hanneke

Chrissy said...

Grenouille Greetings said...

WOW! She's fab! And made more so by your beautiful colour work, Mina! Love the papers too! I did a bit of craft room sorting yesterday too. Trouble is, once I've cleared a two foot square section of my desk I always decide that I've had enough and it's time to play! I've made more cards in the last two weeks since I started tackling the disorder in my Craft Croft than I had made in the run up to Christmas but of course the room is still messy! Hey ho. Its about priorities! Hugs, Lesley

Lisa Jane said...

oh wow gorgeous card - love the soft pink and green , and the sparkly hearts

Oh my gosh Mina, she is beeeeeeeea-u-tiful! You have such a light touch with the colours hun, it's like gossamer, and so pretty! Now, tell me, why do I have more room in an untidy space than I do when it's been tidied? I work better in chaos. Honest. Hugs Sxx

Sheila in Cyprus said...

Another fabulous card Mina. I love this Saturated Canary image, and your fabulous colouring and use of papers.
OMG, we must have got up thinking the same thing yesterday! I went into our spare guest room and to make a card, but then thought,
"No, I'll give it a good sort out".
I gave up at 6pm last night, hungry and dying for a cuppa. I have jsut taken another break today to have some lunch, and I am still sorting. I did'nt think I had much stash, but must admit alot of it is really old and no longer used. It will be boxed up and given away.
Happy sorting!
Love Sheila x
