loads of goodies to give...

Good morning everyone, are you all having a good week and well and happy, today is our monthly Mo's Dreamteams blog hop time...you should have arrived here from the fabulously talented Debbie's blog, if you didn't then hop on over to our lovely host this month Pops to start at the beginning and don't forget just for leaving us a comment there's a chance to win one of two $5 credits to Mo's Digital Pencil too...Pops chose the theme of Summer Tones for our hop this month and I chose to use the stunningly cute Walker for my card...I love that look of concentration on her face don't you, she always makes me smile...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and teamed her up with the amazingly gorgeous My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing - Bluebell 6x6 Pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...aren't those colours just beautiful, I finished my card with a lush golden coloured organza ribbon and a made up punched flower...I'm the last stop on the hop so I hope you had fun on it and enjoyed all the lush work from the team...don't forget your comments for a chance to win too...oh and read the rest of my post for more winning news

well that's my craft room all packed up and ready to go (of course I kept some things out just in case I'm in need of a play)...the good thing is I found loads of goodies to give away, I need some honest answers now though, would you be offended at being given half 12x12 sheets as a prize as I have loads and loads and loads of them...all by fabulous companies and colours and designs, let me know and I will get some sets together to give away...oh and I found some unused rubber too, I know its shocking isn't it so will do a giveaway of these too...its going to be giveaway galore isn't it as Sunday is Bunny Zoe's Crafts candy time too...so watch out for Sunday, then I will do another next week and you never know after that do you 'wink wink'...we decided not to go out last night so instead we got chinese it was scrummy too, I was so hungry which makes it even nicer doesn't it, although after a chinese I am so so thirsty for about two days after as I don't use any salt in food I think its the added salt that makes me so thirsty....oh but so worth it lol...oh I forget the fab sketch I used is from The Sweet Stop challenge and I'm also entering it for the Anything Goes Challenge and Paper Pretties challenge too...I'm going to have a chill out day today before all the running around like headless chickens starts again, whatever your up to have a fantastic day everyone

Wonderful card Mina, love the adorable image.
You could even cut them down to 6inches which is the size for cards and more Scrapbookers are now scrapping with the small paper pads cos its cheaper.
luv
Debby

tilly said...

This is just stunning from Mo and the way you have coloured her!!!
I for one would not mind half sheets of paper, but for ease of packing and post I would cut them into 6 x 6.... just the right size for cards and maybe it would do 2 prizes as well lol

Moni said...

Gorgeous card Mina, image is so cute and fab papers. About the candy: I don't mind if I get half of paper or used stamps. Hugs,moni

Very stunning card Mina!
The image is very cute!

Grenouille Greetings said...

I LOVE this image in her pretty lemon dress! And I LOVE your pretty papers and lush bow! Gorgeous card, Mina! Now as for giving things away... my view is that I am always grateful for giveaways and I think everyone should be the same. My cards are usually 6x6 or smaller and whereas I buy 12x12 papers, I almost never use them without cutting them down. Even a scrapbook page maker can always use 6 x 12 pages for embellishment. Hugs, Lesley

Jessie said...

lovely card Mina!

Sylvia said...

Hi Mina!
As always you made a beautiful card!. I love,love, love youre coloring and shading.
Youre choice of paper is always perfect.
I agree with Grenouille. I buy 12x12, but always cut them down to 6x12 to make a card.
Hope you have a nice summer (whats rest of it :-) )

Linda said...

This baby is delightful in yellow. She looks like she was a joy to color. As for your give-aways. Package up your goodies and give an accurate description and let the reader decide if they want to enter or not. Sounds like the perfect way to share your goodies with your friends! Offended, heck no. Every time I used one of your papers or stamps, I would think of you!

Sue said...

Hiya Mina,she is gorgeous,love the soft colouring.Fab papers.
You know anything from you is always gorgeous,12x12 makes many size cards,so even half is very generous.
Hugs Sue xx

Tammy said...

Beautiful Mina and I love the background papers you used.

occasionali said...

This little girl is so sweet and I love the way you have coloured her. Never tried distress inks for colouring but htey definitely seem to give theat lovely muted tone. I adore papers whatever the size.

Irene said...

Gorgeous and sweet Mina!!!!

CraftyLoops said...

Mina this card is absolutely beautiful. I adore yellow. It must be strange seeing your craft room all packed up......any chance you could come around to mine and sort mine out too? Lol. My room is never going to be tidy is it!? And Im sure no one will mind getting half 12x12's Mina. Im sure everyone will be just happy to be entered into the giveaway. Lee x

christi said...

oh mina, this little girl could have been me. very similar look at that age. so cute as always love your woork or shall i say play!

i think half or quarter sheets are fine to give away. especially for cardmakers. we hack the day lights out of a 12x12 sheet of paper. if they don't want it, don't enter the giveaway. simple enough!

ursula said...

Oh how cute, we are to be grandparents again soon, so an apt card. colours amazing....well done...xxx

What an awesmecard and precious baby. This card makes you fall in love with babies :) she looks like my little granddaughter. I love the beautiful ribbon that picks up the shades of her dress. Thank you for sharing with us. What a joy it is. Hugs, Cathy K

Astrid said...

Hi Mina,
Lovely card you have make and the image soooo cutie.
Hugs Astrid

cebelica said...

Lately I can't get enough of yellow. I want yellow papers, yellow embellishments, yellow ribbon ... The more yellow the better. lol Your card turned out beautifully and I just love how you colored the image. That little girl is precious! :)
And to answer your question ... I personally wouldn't be offended if I was only given a half of a pad for example. It's really nice of someone to just give something because they want to. If someone doesn't want to receive "used" or "half used" items, they don't have to sign up for the candy. As simple as that.
Anyways, I wish you an amazing day! Hugs! xx

flutterbys-n-faeries said...

awww that is gorgeous...such wonderful colours!!!

Julie said...

She is just adorable, Mina! Love the soft, summery hues and such gorgeous papers! Hugs,Juliexx

mags said...

Beautiful card Mina. Such a cutie of an image and love the papers and your lush bow.
It is very generous of you to offer to put up some candy. If people don't want half a pad of papers they don't have to enter. I think you will find that most of us are happy to receive any crafty goodies.
