I so want that bag...

Good morning did you all have a fantastic weekend, I hope you did, we had a great one, oh and I forgot to tell you yesterday before we set off for the craft show then Ikea I double checked the stock on the two bedside tables we were wanting and they had a full stock...well when we got there was not a single one left....hhhhmmmmmmmm could it be because they were half price for Ikea Family members...I know I was going to the craft show anyway but as its a 110 miles round trip for us I would have been very miffed if we had just gone for the tables...oh well we had lunch there anyway, long trip for a bit of salmon though lol... did you all enter my candy yet, if not its on the post below its one I wouldn't mind winning so pop down after this and enter, you never know do you, you might win...its Phil's first full day at work today, I'm all nervous for him although I don't know why, he is excellent at what he does and I know it, it was strange last night as Sunday nights are usually spent alone as he used to travel back on Sunday, it was strange but strange in a nice way, does that make sense, well it did to me when I wrote it lol...right now onto my card for today...how amazingly cute and gorgeous this stunning To Grammy's image is, it is of course from Mo's Digital Pencil...that much gorgeousness has to be by Mo doesn't it, I so want that heart shaped bag too...I coloured her with distress inks and the lush yummy coloured papers are from a pad I bought at the show (bargain half price too)...its a My Minds Eye-A Happy Heart 6x6 pad...fabulous pad...I finished my card with two colours of ribbon, a few pearls and a metal heart charm (more show purchases)...the fab sketch is from the One Stop Craft Challenge and I'm also entering it for the CYDA Challenge, Crafty Catz Weekly challenge and Cute Card Thursday challenge...I'm off to get some shopping today, I thought I would make a stir fry and maybe some cupcakes today ...oooohhhhhhh get me all domesticated, Phil better not get too used to it lol...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

I live in the United States and about 2 hours from our nearest IKEA. My daughter went on a trip to your beautiful Country in March and luckily, the IKEA is near the Pittsburgh Airport! When we took her AND when we picked her up at the airport, we made trips to IKEA! They have the very best furniture for craft rooms, especially!
I'm so glad that I found your blog through Mo's Facebook page. I absolutely LOVE your coloring of that adorable MO image and the patterned paper, bow and heart charm! I'll try to enter your blog candy because it's an amazing prize, but I've never done so anywhere so I'm not very confident that I'll do it correctly! Anyway, you've got a new fan from across the pond!
Take care!

Super cute Mina! Love that pink satin bow!! Sorry you didn't get your tables but hope you had fun at the craft show. ~jeni :)

Grenouille Greetings said...

Lovely papers, fabulous colouring, perfect layout! Super card Mina! I think Ikea is great but I don't know anyone who hasn't suffered from stocks not being there on arrival or things being broken when you get them home. I'm glad you enjoyed the craft fair though. I've have candied up my side bar. I hope its okay - I made a little collage of the candy in order to load it. Good luck to Phil in his new job! Hugs, Lesley
