Im in yellow mode...

Good morning everyone are you all having sunshine, we are having wall to wall sun now if we could just get the temperatures to match we might be changing seasons eventually...I had a fantastic day crafting yesterday, don't you just love a colouring session, its good for the soul...although I did stab myself twice, once with a scalpel and another with my scissors...but then its me so that normal isn't it lol...I just noticed after I had made up some cards, I must be in yellow mode and everything I have made for the next few days (except tomorrows that is) has some yellow in it...I think its the papers though they are defo getting more colourful and bright. I did a little bit of shopping last night, the new Magnolia stamps are in Bunny Zoe's Crafts for pre order and I usually only buy one of each collection but three dropped into my basket, they are so cute and unusual and I just couldn't resist, oh and I bought some of the new Magnolia papers too and just as I was leaving a Prima paper pad dropped into my basket, don't you hate it when that happens lol...I was cooking honey glazed chicken last night for dinner when it suddenly dawned on me its not that I hate cooking so much its the planning I hate, deciding what to make does my nut in...how do you all plan what your going to eat, maybe I should shop every day, yeah right lol...right enough waffling onto my card for today, this beautifully delicate image is a Belles and Whistles stamp called Every Belle...the Belles and Whistles stamps are a massive 25% off atm too...shes beautiful to colour and I used my usual distress inks and paper pieced her skirt and headband...the fantastically coloured papers are from the Cosmo Cricket 6" x 6" Mini Deck - Baby Jane paper pad gorgeous aren't they (see what I mean about yellow)...I finished with some fab yellow seam binding, a couple of pearl headed pins and a lush flower from the Kaisercraft Paper Blooms - Buttercream pack, everything except the ribbon and pins are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts ...these look very squashed in the packet but when you get them out and plump them up they are lush...the fab sketch is from the Sketch N Stash challenge and I'm also entering it into the Ribbon Carousel challenge and Creative Card Crew challenge ...I'm off out to lunch with Phil today he gets an hour for his lunch and only works a couple miles away so we are meeting in town, how amazing is that...whatever your up to today have a good one

Hi Mina, Oh I love the yellow, reminds me of that thing we used to see now and then...sunshine....we are swamped out today, it's pouring and so very cold, the heating is on...again....Mr EON must be delighted with me...lol..xxx

Renee said...

Love your card Mina! The yellow influence must be coming from the sunshine. It is cloudy, cold & wet here in my little part of Canada..can't wait for the sun to arrive & bring some lovely heat with it. As for dinner...I cook but hubby decides what we have (I too hate that part of it!)

Hi Mina - such a pretty card - I love the yellow - that rose looks gorgeous.
So lovely for you to be able to meet your husband for lunch.
My husband is sorting out his cricket bag at the moment (I think he's excited about his first match on Saturday!) - he's just asked me if I want to sniff his underwear ROFL! Sorry, you really didn't want to know that did you?! ha ha! BTW - it is all freshly laundered!
Love, Andrea xx

Love the image and as always the colouring is fantastic. You really are a marvel with those distress inks.

Tracy said...

This is such a pretty card.
Great colouring.
I hate to plan meals as well, and actually I don't care to cook them either, teehee.
But what I do is get everyone to pick a meal a day. Helps with the "what to make" problem.

Lorraine said...
