rubber alert...

Good morning everyone I hope your all having a sunny happy week...oh er that title sounds a bit rude doesn't it I just noticed lol...I'm so sorry if I upset some of you yesterday telling you my cards had been binned, I promise I wont do that again and I will find somewhere for them to go and you never know when all the moves over and the next two weddings (phew I'm tired just thinking of them lol) I might even get some sold to subsidise my crafting, that would be fantastic wouldn't it...I did a bit more clearing yesterday and then went out to lunch with my lovely Dad he had an appointment in the morning to get his eyes checked to make sure they are healing ok, the optometrist said his vision is excellent and he may not even need reading glasses, wow isn't medical science amazing...its astounding what they can do isn't it, changing peoples lives in just a few short hours...whatever they are paid I don't think it can be anywhere near enough...he has a real sparkle in his blue eyes now and is still gobsmacked at how much he can see...what gob smacks me is I was driving around with him when he couldn't see 'gulp'...anyway enough waffle onto my card for today which is for all you rubber stamp lovers...Bunny Zoe's Crafts have a Pre order from Little Darlings for the new Saturated Canary stamps...this little stunner is Saturated Canary - Circus Trixie isn't she gorgeous I love the way Krista does eyes don't you, they just leap of the pages at you...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and used some papers from a brand new range called Studio Calico and this is from the Studio Calico 6x6 Paper Pad - Heyday pad, lush aren't they, such beautifully soft colours...I distressed some of the papers with tattered rose distress ink too and finished with a stamped sentiment, a huge white satin bow and a few of the roses cut from the papers...isn't this sketch lush its from the CLP Challenge and I'm also entering this for the Anything Goes Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp challenge too...I'm off out to the supermarket with my Dad today then hes coming for dinner...seafood pasta night its one of my specialities (mind I don't have many lol)...whatever your up to today I hope you have a wonderfully sunny one

Love that little heart on her cheek. Soft and delicate creation Mina. I love it. So glad to hear about your Dad. Scary when you think of how bad his vision had to be. Lucky your new home will be within walking distance of town. LOL

This is so pretty Mina and I too love the eyes on these girls. Enjoy your day with your Dad.

Squirrel x said...

I did have a chuckle at your title, shows how my mind works then! These SC images are slowly growing on me (like Tilda, it took a while) and I love looking at what other peeps do with them, but I'm not feeling the urge just yet. Your colourwork on this one is so gorgeous Mina, delicate and feminine. Now, get back to the packing woman!! Hugs Sxx

Irene said...

Just in case you start dismissing cards in the future.....please remember I simply LOVE LOVE LOVE this beauty Mina whhahaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Hello Mina,
Glad to hear your Dads news. Enjoy your seafood pasta too x

Your card is beautiful. You have coloured her perfectly & love the colour. As for your cards that you binned(tut tut), you should have done what I did. I took 95 to the Royal Marsden in Sutton. They have a few tables there that sell things to make money that goes back in to the hospital & for the patients.

I recieved a lovely letter from them too, it made my day x

hugs sally x
