cool summer...


Good morning everyone hows your week going...yes your seeing right I have another card for you...this is becoming a habit lol...I think the mojo crisis is over thank goodness and its very slowly creeping back...and about bloody time too lol...well I went for a wee mooch in town yesterday but didn't get my lunch as my lovely Dad wanted some stuff there too so we went together and he had already eaten...one of the things I went for was foam pads for my cards...I couldn't find any anywhere is there a worldwide shortage of square foam pads I ask myself, I had to settle for circular ones but at least I can cut up the shocking wastage from the edges and in between...I couldn't even find any ribbons I really like either...whats going on when I cant find fabulously gorgeous ribbons...so I left town with a couple of sheets of foam pads and nothing else...now that's a shocking state of affairs isn't it...oh well I will just have to try harder I think...Phil's away again this weekend marshaling so I might manage to persuade my lovely Dad to pay a call to the craft shop...you know I just thought I'm the only one in our whole family that cant drive...its not because I don't want too, I would love to have a little Fiat (preferably a lilac one) of my own to pop into and head out on adventures but my eyesight in one eye is so bad I cant pass the sight test to see the number plates...gutted...oh well at least it gives my Dad an excuse to come with me, bet hes thrilled he will be able to go to the craft shop lol...right now onto my summery card for today...how cute is this little scene from Whimsy Stamps...its called Little Jack and Bobbin Seaside Dreamin', just a perfect summery image isn't it...I coloured it with my distress inks and used some beautiful fresh papers from the Carta Bella - Cool Summer 6x6 Paper Pad, guess where the sentiment tag is from...go on have a guess...ok I will tell you, its the name from the from of the pad...waste nothing lol...I finished with a few buttons and a scattering of punched butterflies, everything except the buttons are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, oh and btw Nikki is having a sale of the papers and there's 15% off this pad...the sketch is an old one I found so haven't a clue where its from I'm afraid but I'm entering it for the Twisted Tuesday Challenge, Deep Ocean Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge too...its supermarket day today but at least I get to have a put the worlds to rights coffee with my Dad which makes supermarket day worth having...whatever your up to today I hope if your shopping you find what your after

Waw Mina the card is so pretty. it just screams summer. I don't drive either, but because I am so scared of speed. Well I'll just have to get over it I guess since every job I apply requires a driving license :( Have a lovely day. hugs! Mojca

Your on a roll Mina, such a pretty card, so sweet and delicate.
Hope you have a good shopping trip, so annoying when you go into a craft shop without anything, my hubby says my craft rooms like a shop a bit on an exaggeration i think lol well maybe not.
