dont you just love a freebie...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a fab weekend?, I hope you did...we went to have a look at a huge sale in Town and I didn't even get half way around the store before I was so tired I had to sit down, so no bargain but coffee and cheesecake instead, yum yum...now today is D day, you need to wish me luck before I have to head into the deepest darkest interior of...........the craft room dah dah dah...(did you like the dramatic music lol)...its packing time for the craft room, I may be back, or I may be lost in boxes for the rest of eternity...you never know what I might find, or (sssssccccrrrreeeeeeaaaammmm) have to throw away...wish me luck and if you don't hear from me for a while send help lol...now I know a lot of you wanted to help and I thank you all for the thought but I couldn't afford the stash that would mysteriously disappear now could I...right now onto my card for today (btw aren't I doing well keeping up with my cards while we are packing)...don't you just love a freebie especially when they are as beautiful as little Eva from Saturated Canary...yes she was a freebie can you believe it...I coloured her with my distress inks and teamed her up with this lush paper from the My Minds Eye Miss Caroline -Howdy Doody 6x6 paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...this is a stunning pad but I'm not sure if its still in stock...I finished with some lush gingham ribbon, a kraft luggage label (I bought these from a £1 shop, huge bargain) and a Prima flower...I'm entering this for the Stamp Man Challenge, Challenge Up Your Life challenge and the Cardmadfairy's Digi Days challenge too...right I'm off to get my hunting gear on and gather the weapons for the assault on the Craft room...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

Lorraine said...

So pretty, Mina! Love your coloring of that sweetie! and good luck on the craft room packing!

MaRyKaY said...

wow that is so pretty.
Love the pastel colored look of this card. fab dp paper. I am wondering you said you used distress inks to color her. Do you mean distress ink markers or the ink pads? If ink pads what method or tool do you use to color with the pads?
I am wanting to give this a try and wondering if paint brushes, water brushes, stumps which is better to use?
Thanks for sharing such a cute card. and yes freebies like that are always awesome

Renee said...

This cutie has been superbly enhanced by your wonderful colouring and those gorgeous papers. Don't wear yourself out, Mina! Your fatigue might be due to all of your hard work packing but if it keeps up - a trip to the docs is required. Take care! Hugs, Lesley
