new buttons...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well, the rain is back here (for a change lol)...my wonderful Sis and her family were here for a little while yesterday but they were heading out for a jaunt and as the car was full I couldn't go, every time I see them I realise how much I miss seeing them, kids just shoot up don't they and here's are a real joy, I would love to see them everyday...we really should make more of an effort to see each other after all we only live 50 miles apart, but with kids, work and me not being able to drive (I know shocking isn't it) it rarely happens...Phil had a nice Birthday I think, not the best type of days when you have to work 2-10pm though as we didn't even get a chance to go out for a meal....so it will have to be another night...I will show you the card I made him in a few days....oooohhhhhhh and I have some lush candy from Bunny Zoe's Crafts for you this week, Nikki always gives candy that I'm jealous of and this one I SO want...can you enter for your own candy do you think lol...right now onto my card for today this fabulous little Home Grown Manga sweetie from Sugar Nellie and is called Honey Bee, isn't she gorgeous and shes on offer at the mo for an amazing £4.25...I coloured her with distress inks and used this lush double sided paper from Echo Park's Sweet Summertime range, its called Summer Argyle...I must buy some more of this range the colours are so beautiful and bright...I finished with some pretty coloured pearls and some of my new find, these buttons are from Dunelm Mill and I bought three different colour ways...these are from two of them...aren't they stunning colours, unusual and bright...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge and the Crafty Boots challenge (I used Ribbon, stripes and yellow)...I haven't a clue what I'm up to today but feel the need for a mega colouring marathon...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

Hi Mina I love your nice card very much. Sorry for leaving no message for such a long time but I see your blog every day and enjoy all your creations very much. I had an operation at my back again and my father in law is very ill in the hospital so this is a great worry at the moment. I just wanted you to know that I still follow you and I hope to post something within a short time.
Hugs Ageeth xx
