sunny yellow...


Good morning everyone...bbbbrrrrr its still chilly here although Phil reckons its just me...that could be true I guess maybe I didn't move enough yesterday lol...I had a great time colouring to my hearts content yesterday but only managed to make one card though and I couldn't resist using sunny yellow for it...well it had to be didn't it...poor Phil is worn to a frazzle this week, there's loads of people off on holiday and his boss left on Friday with no warning so hes trying to do two peoples jobs with a much reduced staff, all he can manage is to eat then he falls asleep on the sofa for the rest of the night, but then who can blame him...he needs some time off after this I reckon they owe him at least a weeks break don't you...btw I forgot to ask you all are the photos a lot better now, I think I have fixed the dpi but then again my eyesight can be a bit blurry so need you all to say if it is fine...don't worry about telling me if they aren't. Did you ever get the feeling something was going to happen...I have had that feeling for a few days now, you know the sort of thing like when you were a kid and it was coming up to Christmas....ooohhhh I hope its something fantastic, keep your fingers crossed for it lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this oh so cute digi from Sugar Nellie...shes called Daffy Pip and I used my usual distress inks to colour her...I knew which pad I would use for her and yes its another of my new buys from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...these papers are from the amazingly colourful and bright Echo Park - Here & Now 6x6 Paper Pad...aren't they lush colours and perfect for Pip don't you think...I finished my card with a couple of what I call fat pearls from the Mixed Bag 5mm Flat backed Pearls, a lush ribbon from my stash and a daffodil I bought many moons ago...the fab sketch is from the Sketch N Stash Challenge and I'm also entering it for the One Stop Craft Challenge and the One Stitch at a Time Challenge too...I'm off out with my lovely Dad this afternoon as hes need some shopping, I'm sure he only gets a little bit at a time so we have an excuse to go out lol...so its food shopping and a coffee break I think so I better get things done before I have to get ready and the way I'm feeling I may need the thermals on today lol...whatever your up to today I hope you don't need your thermals...have a brilliant one

Definitely no bed socks here. It is very hot and humid. Great inside air conditioner weather. Sorry about loosing your plants. Looks like I lost some of the ones I planted not long ago for some end of summer/fall color. My Mom passed away and I just didn't care enough to water them. Priorities you know.

Love your bright sunny card. I always love your cards and visiting your blog. Big Hug for your lovely Dad too.

Hi Mina,
I just love the way you colour with your distress inks - so different from other peoples. Grand card today with the bright yellows. Can't help but feel happy after seeing it!
Thinking of Phil working so hard.
You are SO fortunate to still have your dad to spend time with.
Hugs, Candy

It must be a bloke thing!!!! My husband said there is a lot off at his work too, they are doing double the work if not more!!! He comes home, showers, eats, & sleeps. Bless him, he does try to stay awake, lol.
