Good morning everyone...wow can you believe its April already...we seem to have had our good weather though and the cold is back, not just as cold but about 12 degrees lower than last week...is your weather the same...oh by the way are any of you have problems leaving comments, when I go onto some blog I'm getting an error message saying its not available, I can get on after reloading two or three time but its taking ages...oh no is Mr Blogger having a hissy fit again...ooohhhh sssssshhhhhhh maybe I should have said that...if your having problems too let me know so I dont think Im being picked on lol...we had a nice day yesterday, lunch with Dad then a little visit to my local craft shop 'just for some card for blanks' say I, Phil gave me that 'yeah right' look and £30 later he was ssssoooo right lol...well a girl cant resist new gingham ribbon and some new graphic45 papers too can she, oh and a replacement for my Martha Stewart doily punch that snapped ages ago, I replaced it with a Tomic punch, same design but much much cheaper...oh and of course we had to have a little coo over the owners 9 week old baby boy, he is so so gorgeous, Phil asked if I could take him home, yes but he would be straight back when he wakes at 4am crying though lol...right now onto my card for today, I love love love this MayzyArt image, isnt she fantastic and a dream to colour those balloons (see I told you I bought another one and you would be seeing it)...shes called Bibi Balloons, I coloured her with distress inks and used some of these amazingly bright gorgeous papers from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline - Howdy Doody 6x6 Pad from Bunny Zoes Crafts, I finished with some lush Sheer Ruffle Edge - White from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop....I finished with a bow and fab Prima Flowers Perie Bebe - Meadowlark flower...the fab sketch is from the Papertake Weekly challenge and Im also entering it for the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge and Ditzy Craftymess challenge too...I'm off out shopping with our Daughter today which means I will be on handbag holding duty while she tries things on...whatever your up to I hope the weather is sunny for you and you have a fantastic day

Heya Mina, welcome back with a super sweet card!!! Yeah Mr. Blogger is not picking on you, we had the same in Holland last week and even worse....I totally panicked....my blog was removed for a couple of hours because I broke some rules ???????????????? Me, breaking rules......they must be joking!!
Spring has left us, it's autumn again and we are heading for night frost next week....... BRRR!!!!

Have fun shopping with your daughter, how I would love to do so!!!

So pretty, Mina! I love the light springy colors, your coloring of that fab image and the beautiful papers! Glad you had a good visit to the farm - altho I couldn't take much sh*t shoveling watching either, lol.

Linda said...

Oh yes Blogger has been being very discriminating on which pages he will let me visit. I am oh so familiar with that error message.

Have to agree with you Mina those balloons look fun to color and check out those ruffled knee socks!

I had the same problems with comments on some blogs too, naughty Mr B! This card's pastel colours reminds me of sugar sweetie colours and now I'm hungry for sweeties! Mayzy's digi stamps are the 2nd new stamps I've been introduced to in 2 days, they're fab. Such a lovely bright and breezy card.
