sleepy...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy...I'm shattered today our Daughter and her other half's flight from Amsterdam was delayed so it ended up it was the small hours of this morning that we finally got home and by the time the luggage was moved, stories were told and I fed them (well I'm a Mum and its my job lol) it was after 3am when I finally got to bed...so I'm a bit fuddle headed this morning and I don't want to see one of you say 'no change there then' lol, I don't mind waiting around in airports as I love people watching and wondering where they are rushing to or from and what their 'stories' are, too much imagination as my Mum used to say...my Dads home and looking wonderfully brown and well, he had a brilliant time and it turned out he was just to tired to go to England and is going in July instead...did you all enjoy the hop yesterday, how amazing was every ones work with the ethnic skin tones...right now enough waffle Mina, I think I need to go back to bed for a few hours so I will get on with it...my card for today is using this beautiful Saturated Canary image called To The Lake...isn't she gorgeous in these colours, I used distress inks to colour her and matched her up with this amazingly bright and gorgeous double sided paper from the Echo Park Summer Days collection called Scallops ...love these colours together don't you?...I finished with some pearls and Prima flowers...the little summer days tag is cut from the info strip from the paper, waste nothing remember lol...the fab sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Charisma Cardz challenge and Cute Card Thursday challenge too...right I'm off back to bed for a couple of hours then a bit of crafting I think, colouring for the soul will buck me up no end...whatever your up to today do it quietly so you don't wake me lol

I so LOVE your coloring, Mina. I'm just learning how to color with distressinks myself (I've been a copicoholic up untill now...lol) I love it, but it's not easy, so thanks for the colors- I'm learning all the time. I can't believe how great your coloring is! I'm your new follower, your work is wonderful, I'll be back for more:)Thanks for sharing!
Hugs, Elizabeth
