revenge of the red...


Good morning everyone do you have anything brilliant planned for today?, we wont be going far as poor Phil has to go into work this morning and wont be back until late lunchtime...I will give you a little hint for the future, when your planning a shopping trip with your Daughter...never, never, never wear high heeled boots because 4 hours later you will feel like your walking on broken glass lol...oooohhhhh what we go through for vanity...the reason we went on a little shopping trip was our Daughter has just got a brand new job and has to go away for three weeks for training...its a fantastic job and whats really important is its full time...she has been existing on a part time job since she was made redundant and has finally landed a fantastic managerial job again...my heart has been broken watching her struggle on a part time wage when she was used to a Managers wage but waiting finally paid off and she has the job of her dreams...so we had to go to town for a little make over shopping trip, new hairdo, makeup, clothes etc so she can look her best for her three weeks in a four star hotel (no of course I don't envy her lol)...I'm so thrilled and excited for her and hope she enjoys her time away even though it is for work...of course I will worry myself sick while shes away but at least I can feed her other half and keep him company so I still have my surrogate son to pamper lol...I know you will all wish her your best and keep everything crossed that things go smoothly because your such caring people but Im sure she really doesn't need luck shes brilliant at her job and is so clever...right now onto my card for today which just goes to show just when you think you have managed to get a handle on colouring with the dreaded red, it jumps up and bites you on the bum lol...I noticed when I uploaded this that the red on her lips mustn't have been dry properly when I made the card and has spread a little so she has much fuller lips than she should have...of course this stunning image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Kitchen Dance c...amazing isn't it, I coloured it with my usual distress inks and how about these fantastic papers them...they have been designed by my mate Jak Heath, they are from the Romancing Paper Pack...how multi talented is that woman and would you believe you can get them for just £1...I cute some of the roses out for embellishments and used a beautiful satin ribbon to finish it off...the lush sketch is from the Feeling Sketchy Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Delightful Challenge and the Paper Crafting Journey Challenge too...I'm off to take something to settle my stomach as its churning at the thought of our Daughter driving all the miles she has too on her own...ooooohhhh the joys of parenting lol...whatever your up to today have a fantastic relaxing one

You didn't smear the red, He did. LOL.

Beautiful card Mina and you are right about Jak she is so very talented and this paper is gorgeous.

Good Luck to DD, but I am sure she won't need luck. She is very fortunate to have found a "perfect" job. They are so few and far between right now. She must be very smart!
