should she be green?...

Good morning everyone did you all stay up to watch the Olympic ceremony last night then?...I was a bit gutted at our team GB outfits, the Italians arrived in Armani and we arrived looking like extras from Little Britain lol...whats wrong with our gorgeous red, white and blue, who on earth decided we should change from our flag colours to cream and gold foil...yuck, not even David Beckham could make that look good (not that he had the chance though)...my lovely Dads garden is finished and hes so relieved, my Dad is badly disabled and walks with two crutches but hes one of those people who stresses that he cant help, do you know what I mean and he ends up making himself sore and ill from straining to not help bless him...so hes aching from head to foot...ooohhhhh I'm so excited for him next Wednesday is his final cataract operation, I bet it will open the whole world up to him, now if I could just get him to go get his hearing down he would have his 80 year MOT sorted I think lol...anyway onto my card for today which is using this stunningly beautiful Green Lady from A Day for Daisies, isn't she amazing and she wonderful to colour...I know I probably should have coloured her green but couldn't resist this colour combo for her, it suits her don't you think...the papers are from the Teresa Collins 6x6" Paper Pad - Everyday Moments I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...love those colours...I finished with an organza ribbon bow and two flowers cut from the papers...the papers are so beautiful I didn't think I needed anymore, do you?...the lush sketch is from The Sweet Stop but I'm a bit late and missed the dealing, oops...I'm entering it for The Stamp Man challenge though...Phil's away at the racing today so I'm heading out to buy a Birthday present for my Nephew, the thing my Sister said he wanted I haven't a clue what they are but have direction on how to get them...am I getting old or just out of touch with kids present, I hope its the latter...whatever your up to today I hope you have a fabulous one

She is perfect Mina, simply lovely card.
Don’t feel so bad, did you see the US team! OMG Designed by Ralph Lauren they looked more French then the French and made in China for crying out loud. Her Majesty and her corgis were fabulous.

Lovely card Mina. The image is gorgeous and love the colour combo.
I thoroughly enjoyed the opening ceremony but have to agree that I wasn't too impressed with Team GB outfits. Stick to red, white and blue I say.

the outfit was a little disappointing I agree, but the ceremony in itself was spectacular, well worth to be proud of.

Kat said...

Gorgeous Mina and I think these colours are perfect for her.

Glad to hear your Dad's garden is sorted out and he can enjoy it.

Kat xx

Kara Lynne said...

She is gorgeous! I couldn't help but giggle a bit because her colors are a bit cream and gold (but not gold foil!). So glad the garden is done. My dad was the same way when it came to wanting to help so I know exactly what you're talking about. My brother would mow his lawn, and dad felt compelled to stand out there with him.

coops said...

so beautiful mina.i really love the image and your colours are gorgeous :D

xx coops xx

Sherri said...

Another stunning card! I love the colors you chose. They were perfect & your coloring is always the highlight for me! Don't fret about the uniforms. Everyone in the US is up in arms at the choice of our uniforms too. NOBODY dresses like that in the US!! And we had them made in China for the final insult! ha ha

caroline said...

gorgeous card Mina, i think she is gorgeous.love your colour choice and papers.
i thought we should have been in the red white and blue, the white and gold did nothing for me, when you saw all the gorgeous colours of other countrys then us in white.

glad your dads garden is sorted, i have 2 crutches and carn't do a lot of things but try and the next day the pain lays you out.
I would love to take part when you have candy give aways but do not have the know how for a blog and find sitting at computer for to long a no no,
