from one extreme to the other...

Good morning everyone how are you all doing, I'm here but not here if you know what I mean, we left in the very very early hours of this morning, I mean so early it was nearly yesterday lol...who on earth thinks up the ideas of flight at that time of morning...I'm sure I was running around like a headless chicken because we were nowhere near ready to go...I have a post every day as normal but of course not entering any challenges or anything...for my card for today I have gone from a summer image yesterday to the other extreme...this is one of the new Christmas digis from Funky Kits, I'm loving these aren't you...they are fabulous to colour too...this little cutie is called A Gift For You and I coloured him with my usual distress inks...the fabulously yummy papers are from an old kit from My Minds Eye I think...that's what happens when you try to use up some half sheets, some don't have the info strip on them...I finished with some lush ribbons and a stamped sentiment from the Warm Winter Wishes sentiment set from Crafty Inspirations that are being stocked by Funky Kits now...perfect for all your Christmas wishes...right that's me for today, wish us luck that we fall asleep on the right flight and don't get taken to somewhere like Alaska instead of Majorca lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

Very beautiful card Mina. If I would visit your blog first time, I would had hard time to belive that you colored the image yourself :) I'm not surprised to see that the coloring is absolutely amazing but I am stunned again. Your coloring skills are truly fantastic!
