I can almost smell the roses...

Good morning everyone are you doing anything exciting for the weekend?...we had a very very very long day yesterday, we went to Ikea super early and had breakfast there then oh boy did we shop, not only did we get all the new furniture (including some that wasn't on my list) we bought wine glasses, table mats (a bargain 50p each) and loads and loads of stuff we couldn't live without, you know what I mean don't you, the kinda stuff you didn't know you needed until you saw it...then a look around BHS and Next but we didn't buy anything there and then home to a message on the answer phone that we could get a loan of the new house keys if we would like to measure up for curtains etc, so a quick dash around, measuring, deciding where things would go...we finally sat down to eat about 9pm and then bed totally dead on our feet...so all in all a very busy day lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this stunning image from Whimsy Stamps shes called Li'l Montana I coloured her and her little furry friend with distress inks and teamed her up with these stunningly gorgeous rose papers from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Tea-Thyme, cant you almost smell those roses...I didn't add any embellishments at all except for some more of the roses cut from the same papers...any excuse for a bit of cutting out lol...everything I used for my card is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the sketch I made up as I went along and I'm entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge, Crafty Catz Weekly challenge and the Dutch Dare Card Challenge...Phil's working this morning so I'm off to do a little bit of playing in my packed craft room...the boxes wont stop me though I will fight my way through lol...whatever your up to today I hope wherever you are the sun shines on you

Hi Mina,
Sorry I have not commented recently (promise I have been looking!!).
This is such a beautiful card. Love those papers and your gorgeous delicately coloured image.
Had to laugh when I read about you spending the day at Ikea. I recently moved and spent so much time there, it almost became a second home - lol!!

Marianne said...

Just popping over from the Bunny Zoe's blog where I saw your card. I was struck by the soft colours and the subtlety of your colouring. Must really get out my distress inks to use them for colouring. I absolutely love your card, but maybe you had already guessed by now ...

Andrea said...

A beautiful card - gorgeous soft colours.
So exciting for you - all that shopping and getting ready to move house!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Love, Andrea xx

Another stunningly pretty card, Mina - you're right, the cut out paper flowers are all that is needed. Hope you don't mind me asking... do you remember a wee while ago you had problems with getting photos to upload to Blogger? Can you remember what you did to solve it? I'm having the same problem at the moment and it's driving me mad! Hugs, Tracey x
