feeling pretty clever...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...I'm feeling pretty clever with myself this morning...I managed to combine my Mo's Digital Pencil Dreamteams blog hop card with my Colour Create challenge card, am I allowed to feel a big smug do you think lol...oh and btw I made more cupcakes yesterday, lemon cupcakes with cream cheese and vanilla frosting...yum yum yum, I would have shown them to you but they have all been eaten would you believe, I made them at 6pm and they were all gone but one by 9pm and I ate that one at 11 lol...I didn't eat them all my beautiful Daughter and her other half came round to dinner and left with some after eating some after a rather large dinner too...

ok thats enough waffling from me and a big huge welcome to the Mo's Digital Pencil blog hop, if you arrived here from the super talented DEBBIE, if not then hop on over to our host for this month JULIE'S blog to start at the beginning and don't forget to leave a comment on the teams blogs on the hop to have a chance at winning one of two $5 credits for Mo's Digital Pencil...Julies theme for this month is Music and I chose to use the gorgeously cute Little Irish Dancer, I coloured her with distress inks, I so wanted a go at colouring that amazing mad hair, I wasn't too sure about combining the image, music theme and the new colours from Colour Create challenge, our combo this week was chosen by the lovely Sabrina and she chose Lilac, Blue, Kraft, & White and the extra option is to make a paper charm...I love these colours don't you, I used loads of scrap for my card and printed the music score on my computer, I finished with a huge bow and a charm I punched out and stamped...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the One Stitch at a Time challenge...your next stop on our hop is the fabulous POP'S who I'm sure will have something amazing to show you...I'm off to the supermarket today as my lovely Dad is back from my Sisters this afternoon...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

Gorgeous wee dancer on a gorgeous card!

Kat said...

Gorgeous Mina. Love the colour combo.

Cupcakes sound yummy. I've taken a notion to bake more often recently. Don't do it so often now the kids are grown up and left home! And just the other day I decided I wanted to start making bread again too. Trouble is I don't think I could cope with the calories from cakes and biscuits and shortbread (a particular favourite) lol!
