well who knew I could do that...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend?...I hope you did and that the weather stayed ok for you...we had a lovely Sunday, we went to the huge market and car boot sale in Antrim and it was a thick pea soup fog all the way until the last few miles then it lifted and although it was cold it wasn't too cold...I must admit there was a couple of the most shocking stalls I have ever seen in the market...one sold paramilitary type clothing including the ski masks with the eyes and mouth cut out complete with two small boys dressed in full gear including toy machine guns and the other was a Nazi stall, with full regalia, flags, bust of Hitler the lot...I was flabbergasted and so angry and thank goodness Phil was with me or I would have been a lot louder and if I had had a few more guts they would have got a tin of paint around the stalls...seriously why????? would they do that...but besides from those two shocking moments the rest was fine and I bought a few things nothing special, well unless you counts a bag of fresh dug spuds special and two new pillows lol...we stopped off for coffee then came home and made dinner for the whole family, Phil cooked his Italian dish with the lushest garlic potatoes and I made Tiramasu cupcakes, complete with coffee syrup and marscapone, Marsala and vanilla cream...now who knew I could make cupcakes...not me, I was quite impressed with myself lol....I will take a photo of the couple that's left to show just to prove I can cook when I want too...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge and this month Tracy chose the theme is Celebrations anything celebration you want really so there's a lot of choice there, I chose Birthday and used this fantastic little Whimsy stamp called Sam's Special Delivery isn't he so so cute...I coloured him with distress inks and paper pieced his sling...the lush papers are from the Authentique 6x6 Paper Pad - Blissful this is such a beautiful coloured paper pad and on sale too, I finished with a printed banner which I cut out and strung with some Sew Easy Bakers Twine - Neutrals twine a gorgeous Gingham Wired Edge Gold Thread Ribbon - Brown bow and a few yellow buttons, everything except the buttons is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the lush sketch is from Tuesday Morning sketches (I hope it still counts as I moved the sentiments so I could fit it in), I'm also entering this for the Papertake Weekly challenge and Allsorts challenge...phew thanks for sticking with me for this super long post, boy I can waffle cant I lol...I'm having a crafting day to do my projects for the Graphic45 call...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

Lovely card and image. I love the DP and the happy birthday banner too!

Linda said...

He is such a cutie. I love the colors in this Authentique pad. I am shocked they would have a booth like that and allow their children to dress like that. Surprised there wasn't trouble at the booth. Glad your day with Phil was, otherwise a good one. Your dinner sounds delish!
Have a great week!

Janette said...

This is so beautiful, Mina - what a fabulous colour combo to go with the sweet image! I agree about stalls, it's shocking that these things are allowed, especially when there are kids involved. I find the whole thing really disturbing - what goes on in people's heads that makes them think this stuff is accpetable? Beats me. xx

Adriana said...

mariska said...

Hi Mina, gorgeous card and those cupcakes sound mouthwatering delicious x Susan x

Nannieflash said...

Oh Mina t5hat is gorgeous I love your soft pastel colours and your bunting looks fabulous.
I would also have had to say something about the Nazi stall, who needs that sort of thing in this day and age, theres enough trouble in the world without these sort of people starting more by selling the stuff. hugs Shirleyxxxx

Shazza said...

not blurry here Mina, gorgeous card!! Loving the sound of those cupcakes, need the recipe please :)
I am just off to make Red Velvet Cupcakes, first attempt at them so who knows!! As for those stalls, disgraceful, shouldn't be allowed.
Have a good day x
