Princess Mina...


Good morning everyone how you all doing?...I managed a few hours out yesterday (even though Phil said I shouldn't lol)...well I was in need of a put the world to rights coffee with my lovely Dad...he's off on his travels in a couple of weeks so I couldn't miss a coffee with him could I...a little mooch around the supermarket too...is it just me but how annoying is it when people stop to chat and stand across the aisle with their trolley as if they were the only people who mattered...and then have the nerve to tut at you when you ask them to move, very politely I may add too...I did say 'excuse me' not 'get out of my way you ignorant people', even though I felt like saying that lol...never mind though I think my Dad let them know by saying very loudly 'some people are so considerate aren't they' very sarcastically lol...he has a wicked sense of humour sometimes...right now onto my card for today...how freaky is this...the little cutie I used today is from the C.C. Designs Sweet November Princesses stamp set (it's fantastic value considering there are four full stamps in the set) and her name is Williamina...isn't that strange as my name isn't a common one is it...and its spelt the same too...even freakier considering my name was made up of my Mum and Dads friends names William and Ina...so there you go there's two of us, so I have nicknamed her Mina lol...I used my distress inks to colours her and teamed her up with some stunning papers from my almost empty My Mind's Eye 6x6 Bluebell paper pad (its out of stock but there are loads of brand new My Mind's Eye pads been added lately to pick from) and finished with a bow made from the beautiful Organza Ribbon - Baby Blue (25mm Wide), a scattering of different size Flat backed pearls and a couple of flowers from the Prima Flowers Perle Bebe - Song Bird pack...everything I used is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge and the Bearly Mine Challenge too...I'm having a chilling kind of day today but hopefully with a little bit of crafting...oh by the way did you all enter for my little candy yet?...if not its the post below this one...whatever your up too today I hope you have a fabulously sunny bright one

Such a beautiful card Mina. Love love love.
Your supermarket story reminds me of an incident I had with two ladies of a certain age who were side-by-side with their trollies all the way round. I had "excused me" three times already. By the time I got to the cereals aisle I was so fed up it came out as a fierce "will you get out of the bloody way!". Oops.
Hugs, Sxx

Such a coincidence that you two have the same name :)))) Oh and I completely understand you about ignorant people, I think there are more and more of them! I hope you have a lovely weekend, I'll lie in since I have a nasty cold and can't go outside. hugs! Mojca
