just a heart or two...or three...


Good morning everyone how you all doing?...well I didn't get out at all yesterday because of the return of the klutz, I only fell down the stairs didnt I, which was painful enough but I bent some of my toes weirdly when I fell and spent the rest of the day limping and nursing a very bruised knee...omg sometimes I'm too dangerous to let out of bed lol...they aren't broken (well I hope they aren't) because I can bend them ok, I think I just wrenched them...ouch...point of that was though that I didn't get out so no shopping trip or coffee or anything...ok are you feeling sorry for me yet lol...ok enough feeling sorry for myself onto my card for today, this isn't a colour combo I would normally use but it works ok don't you think?...how stunningly beautiful is this image from Mo's Digital Pencil...perfect for any love card...this is the gorgeous Full Heart, I coloured her with distress inks and I have been playing around mixing some colours together to get different ones for this beauty, having loads of fun discovering what they look like together too...I teamed her up with these lush papers from the My Mind's Eye - Oliver 6x6 Pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...that yellow really suits her don't you think...I finished with just a few more punched hearts (well you can never have too many hearts or butterflies I think lol), a lush cream coloured satin bow and a cream crinkly rose...I made the sketch up as I went along but am entering this for the Card Makin Mamas challenge, Totally Gorjuss challenge and the Papertake Weekly Challenge too...Im going out today come hail, rain, shine or stairs lol...whatever your up to today watch out for those things that life puts in your way they are lethal lol

Oh love your absolutely gorgeous card. Hope you feel better soon, I know how you feel though I fell up the stairs thought my foot was on the stair to discover there wasn't a step!

Poor you, Mina. Hope you aren't too uncomfortable today. I'm not entirely sure that being able to bend your toes is a sign that there is no fracture so keep an eye on them. The Hubster walked around on a foot broken in 2 places for about 5 days because he could flex it but it still turned out to be broken! This is the third time in two days that I have seen this new Mo image and she certainly is calling to me! You have coloured her up beautifully and she looks super in the centre of this pretty layout! Hugs, Lesley
