there a hole in my head...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well, I did a lot of hopping last night and there was a surprising amount of people saying they didn't feel well or had sore throats or coughs, so take care everyone there's some nasty bugs about, so wrap up and keep warm and for all those lovely people who aren't well I hope your feeling a bit better really soon...I have decided I'm going to give the Graphic45 DT call a go, I may not be the best or what they are looking for but you never know do you and if your not in it, it wont ever happen, so I went out yesterday to get some papers for it because I wanted to make a couple of new projects for it...got some lush lush Graphic45 papers, then went to Dads cause he has a leaky sink, then to shops to run a few errands...finally I got home and just got in the front door and realised I had completely forgotten what I was going out for in the first place...my busted sofa hair is still there lol...I have a hole in my head where my memory should be I think...oh well I will try to remember tomorrow or could write it on the front door for going out I guess, or better still on my hand or its back to getting up looking like I have had an electric shock during the night lol...my card for today is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge, this week its our lovely Mo's turn to host and she chose Pink, Pearls and Lace...beautiful combo isn't it...I used this cute Tilda who I'm ashamed to say had never been inked, I got her ages and ages ago when I used to get the Magnolia stamp kits...I have an idea shes called something like Love cone Tilda although I might be totally wrong...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the Kaisercraft English Rose 6x6 paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, stunning soft pinks and greens in this pad and the paper with the white swirls is flocked and so soft too...I added a few pearls to the end of the swirls and at the side, the sentiment is from the same pad and I finished with a beautifully soft lace bow made with White 25mm Flat Lace - Polyester from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and a couple of pearl headed pins...I love this sketch but cant remember where its from so if anyone knows could they let me know so I can leave a link...I'm entering this for the Ribbon Carousel challenge, Crafty Cardmaker's challenge and the Allsort's challenge...fingers crossed for my hair today everyone and whatever your up to have a fantastic one and if you have time pop on over to the Just Magnolia challenge to see what the rest of our amazing team came up with

Hi Mina, she's a cutie, great to see you do a little Tilda. Pretty paper, I think I have that Kaisercraft pad, just haven't used it yet. And speaking of Graphic 45, they are nice too. I so appreciate your love for paper. It is my favorite crafting medium too.

LOL!! I just read the first couple of sentences on your post and sat thinking - 'oh no, you can catch a bug from blogging!' I had heard of pc viruses, :D lol.

Your card is just so gorgeous hun, what stunning paper and the contrast of that deep rose pink with the striking white is just breathtaking.

Good luck with the DT call - you are so talented and I am always amazing by your work, you would be brilliant!

holes in the head can sometimes be an advantage, you may do all funny things and forget the boring chores and always have your condition to blame =)

Bernie said...

Gorgeous! My grandson (10) came for dinner last night, he had a little red star drawn on the back on his hand, why I asked, so I'd remember my math book. Didn't work, he still forgot it. Some days nothing helps us remember what we need to.
Blessings Bernie

Hi Mina, beautiful card today, I love those papers , gorgeous. Good luck with the Graphic 45 DT call, you are so right , got to be in it to have a chance.
Sometimes I walk into a room and can't remember what I wanted lol, it's so frustrating and a worry, am I losing the plot ROFL. No , I think we just try to think of too many things all at once. Take care.
