a smudged sweater...


Good morning everyone...bbbbrrrrrr isnt it cold, but at least we don't have any white stuff yet thank goodness...we have had our fire roaring away for the last few days and I'm still shivering with cold...I think I need some thermal knickers if this weather continues lol...well I made it around the supermarket minus any steam escaping, in fact I didn't feel too bad and as our Daughter and her other half were coming to dinner I made soup and then baked a cake...I know how freaky and ok pick yourself up from your faint lol...see I can cook I just choose not too unless I really have too...if I was rich I would never cook again I dislike it so much...don't get me wrong I cook dinner for Phil every night for when he comes home from work but it doesn't stop me hate doing it...well all except Italian I enjoy making Italian food and I don't mind baking a cake or two when the mood takes me...is there anything about the daily grind that you hate (well except housework of course I think everyone hates the dreaded H don't they)...right now onto my card for today and I cant believe it but I smudged her sweater when I was colouring this beauty with my usual distress inks, so she has a nasty bruise on her neck the poor thing...this is the Beautiful Skier from The Paper Shelter...isn't she gorgeous, this is the first Paper Shelter image I have coloured and it defo wont be my last...I teamed her up with these lush papers from the Teresa Collins 6x6" Paper Pad - Now and Then pad, this is such a lush pad...I seem to be on a bit of a yellow and blue theme atm lol...I finished my card with a huge two tone navy bow (maybe a little too big)...I bought the pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...btw the sentiment was already on the pad...I made the sketch up as I went along but Im entering this for the City Crafter challenge, Papertake Weekly challenge and the Paper Makeup Stamps challenge too...oh and btw Bunny Zoe's Crafts has an amazing massive 40% off Paper Sale atm...so hop on over to grab a bargain or three even...I'm heading into town today if I feel well enough I still have some gift cards from Christmas and thought I might treat myself to something new saying its my Birthday on Sunday...you never know something exciting might happen...I live in hope anyway lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and keep warm

Glad you are feeling somewhat better. It is so funny, but I made a big ole' pot of chicken noodle soup and a cake yesterday myself. We must be on the same wave-length. LOL

Love the soft yellows and blues Mina. I wouldn't even have noticed the smudge if you hadn't pointed it out.

Hi Mina, it's been so many months since I visited your blog and left a message but I just wanted to say.....when you smudged the image you carried on and completed a beautiful card. That should teach us that we shouldn't scream and shout and stamp a foot when this happens. As one of your followers wrote...the smudge wasn't even noticeable. I have this image waiting to be coloured, love what you've done with it.
