dont say I didnt warn you...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...thank you all so so much for all your lovely messages yesterday, full of encouragement they really made me feel like I had made the right decisions...I had a fantastic night last night just surfing along and blogging and really enjoying just reading your blogs, I noticed a few people have been joining in with a before and after challenge to show an old piece of work, so I had a look at some of my older ones (the worst ones from the very beginning are long gone thank goodness) the ones that are left are pretty bad mind,so I will give you all a good laugh and have a play along I think...I had a brill afternoon with my lovely Dad yesterday we did a bit of shopping, had coffee had a bit of a natter then when he dropped me off he asked 'will you go food shopping with me tomorrow', am I wrong or hadn't we just been, I wondered why he hadnt bought much in the supermarket lol...I guess it gets him out and I don't mind I love spending time with him so any excuse...my card for today (see I warned you there would be lots more Mos) is my last for the Colour Create challenge I must admit I was sad at leaving CC because it was my very very first DT spot from way way back...this time the challenge is our fabulous Edna's choice and she chose the fab combo of green, brown, white with a touch of lavender or purple with an added option of using metal, I used this fabulous Mo's Digital Pencil image called Girl Holding Empty Sign I added the sentiment using word art and coloured her with distress inks...the amazingly coloured paper is from Echo Park Summer days collection and is called Quilt, I bought loads of these at the weekend so you will see more...I finished with some purple organza ribbon and a brown satin ribbon bow, a sprinkling of pearls and the amazing metal rose is a charm with the ring cut off...the fab sketch is from Totally Gorjuss challenge and I'm also entering it for the Paper Pretties challenge (oops too late) and the Creative Card Crew challenge if you have time today pop on over to Colour Create challenge and say hello to the girls, they work so hard for the challenge and deserve it...I'm off out to the supermarket, yet again today lol and then out to dinner with our beautiful Daughter and her other half this evening...whatever your up to I hope you don't spend it in the supermarket

You are so, so lucky to have your dad to spend time with!
Love your card and always have loved Moe! Great idea to use the same paper on the background and just turn one a different direction, so pretty and interesting!

Rea said...

Very cute stamp. I love her little smile. Sweet papers and bow too. I took care of my Grandparents when they got older and needed care. I know how tiring and how much love it takes. I worked at the time, and 1 if not both of my days off each week were devoted to them. Never had time for myself. My son hadn't been born yet, so I did what I could. They are both with the Lord now, and I miss them so much. I would do it all over again. Hugs to you Mina.

Sherri said...

Adorable! Love the sentiment spelled as you did. And your coloring is brilliant as well.

ribenaruby said...

Gorgeous limey card Mina, you know you've made the right decisions but somehow at the time it all seems so difficult. Wishing you 'Many Happy Blogging' times ahead! Ruby x

Bettina L. said...
