fancy a bite?...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and have a fantastic weekend planned, oh I forgot to tell you that when we were at the supermarket on Thursday we were just starting our shopping when my Dad nudged me with a grin and arched his eyebrows towards a young woman who was bending over, she had THE worst case of builders bum we had ever seen and that included most builders...for those of you who don't now what builders bum is...its when builders don't keep their trousers pulled up enough and there is always a valley of buttocks showing, made even worse when they bend over...I was so tempted to tell her but then it wasn't very warm and I'm sure she new just how much was showing...mind it wasn't much better when she straightened up...seriously woman check your clothing before you leave the house, you would wonder if some people get dressed in the dark wouldn't you lol, now don't get me wrong I'm not the height of fashion or by any stretch of the imagination slim but I do make sure my bits are at least covered and hopefully dont have bits that should so stay covered arent going to pop out...right now onto my card for today, I used the amazingly beautiful Bite? from Mo's Digital Pencil, I love this image her face is just stunning, I kept my colouring with distress ins very monochrome and just did mostly shading and a bit of greens to match this incredible Graphic45 Rainforest double sided paper from their Tropical Travelogue range...I couldn't resist this amazing paper, I think it was the colours, so lush and well...er...tropical lol...I finished my card with a gorgeous satin black bow and a few pearls in different shades of green...the fantastic cas sketch is from Twisted Tuesday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Cutie Pie challenge too...we are off out today and you never now where we will end up...I feel an Ikea moment coming on but sssssshhhhhhh dont tell Phil lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and watch out for builders bum syndrome

Beautifully elegant creation, Mina. I love the little tit bit you shared today - now I also know what a builder's bum is - which one see every day with the pants that are all hipster designs - so not feminine at all.
Hugs
Desire

Andrea said...

Oh Mina, you do make me giggle - I hate the modern jeans that lead to builders bum syndrome - I have to wear high waist jeans - I don't care about fashion, just keep me warm LOL! I can't bear the saggy jeans with the crotch almost down to the knees either - must be getting old!
Anyway, this image is just so gorgeous, and your card is beautiful.
Have a fab weekend.
Love, Andrea xx
