say one for me while your down there...


Good morning everyone how are you all...well and happy I hope...I wasn't being disrespectful in the title for this post, but this image always reminds me of my Mum, if she ever saw anyone on their knees for any reason she would always say 'say one for me while your down there' lol...I think that's why this cutie always makes me smile...well Phil turned out not to have the flu thank heavens...but...he went to work as normal yesterday and then was asked to go to his bosses office to be handed a piece of paper to sign and told he was working too hard and needed a rest and he had three days off to rest up so he wouldn't be burned out...they told him they couldn't afford to lose him from ill health...brilliant eh?...so he doesn't have go back to work until Tuesday...its nice to know wasn't just me thought he worked too hard and long over Christmas and that he's appreciated...although the poor man has spend most of last evening asleep so he must be pooped the poor lamb...well a bit of R&R and spoiling over the next few days should make him feel a bit better I think...right now onto my card for today and then a question for you all...this little sweetie is the beautiful Em Praying from Mo's Digital Pencil, now who else could draw this beauty and her cute rabbit...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Romance Novel from Bunny Zoe's Crafts but its out of stock atm I think...I love the embellishments on these papers don't you...I finished with some tags from the same pad, a huge organza bow and a cream rose...the lush sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I'm also entering it for the Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps Challenge and The Paper Shelter challenge too...right now for an question for you...do I post too often?, I would really appreciate your honesty as if I am that would explain why I'm plummeting down in the ratings?...maybe every one is fed up coming to the blog every day and I should cut back a bit...your opinions would be brilliant thanks...we are going to head out for a lovely walk in the country today followed by soup and sandwiches in the car, well its still a bit nippy for a picnic outside isnt it lol...whatever your up to todat have a brilliant one

Oh she is adorable Mina, what a cutie, and such a delicate card, love her. Lucky Phil is all I can say to have such a caring boss. You could die at your desk here and no one would notice til you started to smell. I wouldn't worry about the ratings sweetie - it's the Christmas effect - things will be back to normal soon. Hugs Sxx

Hi Mina. This is a really lovely soft card, fab papers and image.
I think xmas & new year has made it a bit quiet all over blogland and we've all been off doing other things. I love visiting to see your creations even if I don't leave a comment every time xx

christi said...

you definitely don't post too often. I look forward to your posts, daily. the world is not right if there's not one from you. I don't know how your ratings are judged. I don't always comment but I do always read.

I don't know about ratings. I know I check you regularly to see your delightful creations and hear your loving stories. Create and post when it is fun for you Mina. It won't stifle your creativity and stress you out. I'm still a Big Fan of PinkPuds.

Renee said...

Your card is gorgeous Mina & the post title isn't disrespectful in the least! My Mom says that too...could you say a little prayer for my Mom....she is in hospital in end stage renal failure. They have given here only a week or so to live. It breaks my heart to watch her slipping away.
About the ratings...I love your posts...they always bring a smile to my face, so NO, I don't think you post too often....ignore the damned ratings!!
Hugs, Renee
