Tall enough to be continued...

Good morning everyone, I'm feeling loads better today, I decided to give myself a shake, take some tablets and have a little play yesterday so I was sorting out some buttons and took my two tablets...little sort more then looked at my desk and there was a tablet...yep you guessed it, I took one tablet and one button lol...its not the first time I have done something like this and nearly swallowed a charm one day, see what crafting does for you, distracting or what and so strange but I spent loads of time wondering what colour button it was lol...my card for today is for our new challenge at Colour Create challenge and this time I'm the host, if you remember a few weeks back I made a yellow card and I loved the colour so much it inspired my choice of YELLOW, GREY, BLACK & WHITE and my added extra option is flowers, I hope your all going to join in, I cant wait to see what you come up with, I am totally gobsmacked at what our team made and they really seemed to like the colours, I hope you do to. I used the fantastic Introducing Oskar from Mo's Digital Pencil, isn't he fantastic and as soon as I saw him I knew what the sentiment would be, my Mum used to say this all the time when she saw a tall man...I coloured him with distress inks and the gorgeous yellow paper is a double sided scrap so I haven't a clue which make it is, so if one of you know leave me a comment telling me please...I printed the sentiment and added a few punched flowers and finished with some buttons...oooohhhh ssssshhhhh don't mention buttons lol...the fab sketch is from Papertake Weekly challenge and I'm also entering it for the Creative Card Crew challenge and Sweet Stampin challenge...I'm off to get some crafting done now and will be back a little later to show you a new toy I have so keep an eye out for it...whatever your up to today have a brilliant sunny yellow one

'Morning, Mina- sorry it's been so long since I visited you - I've been a very bad blogger!
I've just been scrolling down and catching up with all your gorgeous work. I love this card too and the fabulous image from Mo! I'm glad you're feeling better- I've had a similar bug myself.
Keep up the stunning work and good luck with the Graphic 45 call!

So that's where I've gone wrong - I should have taken buttons instead of paracetamol! I was going to say let us know what colour it was but I've rethought that idea. Gorgeous card hun, the colours are delightful and I just adore how you use Mo's images. Hugs Sxx

Love this card Mina!! I chuckled about the pill, because I did something similar today...I have to take my pills in a certain order and if I don't then the schedule for taking them changes messing up my day. This morning I took the wrong pills first! I've not done that in years! lol Have a good day. :)

I, too am loving yellow and grey combo. It began with a Authentique paper pad I bought in the fall. Yours is exquisite. Lovin that tall fellow. He would fit in perfect with my DD family. The sentiment is perfect.

Gotta watch those charms, pretty little buggers, but not so tasty.
