you just never know do you...

Good morning everyone thank you all so so much for your wonderful comments about our new house, it means so much all your good wishes and hopes, your such kind warm people...I decided to throw away the old sofa bed that was in my craft room, its a fabulous sofa but very old and needed to go, so we dismantled it last evening as there is no way to lift it fully assembled, do you know what I found underneath it, three packs of flat backed pearls I bought ages ago at a craft fair and thought I had lost there, two pairs of scissors, ribbon, buttons and two of those huge spiders (not living thank goodness) lol...now I'm not a domestic goddess but that's awful isn't it, my excuse (and I'm sticking to it) is the sofa is so so heavy I couldn't lift it...I'm dreading moving my wardrobes now in case I find something living and with eight legs, ooohhhh I wonder if theres anything else I thought had been lost hidden there too...right now onto my card for today, I love this fantastic Sugar Nellie stamp don't you, this is the fantastic Custard from the Soft Centres collection at Funkykits...I coloured her, well I say coloured, I really just shaded her and added black markings...shes so easy to colour and look at that adorable face...the paper is a scrap I found whilst I was sorting and didn't want to waste it, so I have no idea what make or name it is...I added some kraft card too, I finished with a black bow, some lush Prima roses and a stamped sentiment, I think the sentiment is a Magnolia one...the sketch is from the The Sugar Bowl challenge but of course I cant enter that can I being on the Sugar Nellie DT...I am entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and The Crazy Challenge...I'm off to spray under beds and behind cupboards etc just in case theres anything waiting to spring on me lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one, oh and before I forget have you entered the Bunny Zoe's monthly candy yet, if not the link is on the top of my sidebar

Isn't it great to find some "lost treasures"? ;) Who knows, you might find something under the wardrobe as well. ;)
Your card is really nice. I especially like how you placed the flowers.

Hugs! xx

Lovely Mina, that's a really sweet cow. Great what you find when you move things!! I had a wee snoop at yesterday's photos. I think you're house will be great when you get everything the way you want it.

Super cute cow, Mina! Laughed at your finds. I have had three enormous live spiders in the last three days but no flat back pearls or ribbon. You win! Hugs, Lesley

Renee said...

Hi Mina, love your adorable cow! Cows have the most amazing eyes!Good luck chasing away the creepy crawlies.... I have an "unreasonable" fear of spiders acorrding to the other half...but as far as I'm concerned there is no such thing as an "unreasonable" fear when it comes to spiders!!! The only good spidey is a dead spidey!!!!
Hugs, Renee

Candy said...

Sweet card, Mina.

I can't help but laugh at your caution in spraying - but you are smarter than me.
I would never have thought about it.
Maybe there are wonderful goodies under there and no awful spiders at all :o)
Hugs, Candy
