who guessed...*updated photos*


Good morning everyone, did you all have a wonderful quiet Sunday?...ok now hands up who guessed I would buy the dress then lol...yep I did well I couldn't resist the colours and the price reduction from £100 to £35...so off we went shopping today (and Dad wanted to come too...big mistake)...I ended up buying these navy shoes and this hat to go with it to, what do you think, I wish I could show you the dress but I will take a photo of it today and show you tomorrow...I feel much happier about my outfit now and don't feel like I have a funeral outfit on which the grey and black one did...my poor Dad was shattered and so tired when we dropped him off home but I did keep telling him to sit down to wait for me or go for coffee but he would suffer on, made me feel so guilty too...mind I wasn't the only one who bought something new we did get Phil a lilac tie to match my outfit lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge, this month our challenge is Pink, lace and pearls...I made a bit of a boo boo on my card though, can you spot it?...I used this fantastic Magnolia stamp for my card, she so cute isn't she, shes called Magnolia Turning Leaves - Editor Tilda...I love those cute glasses dont you?...I used these fantastic papers from the Kaisercraft - The Lake House 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad...I love Kaisercraft pads they have such fantastic textures as well as colours and four sheets of tags, sentiments and paper borders and ribbons too...I finished with some a sprinkling of pearls, a few Blossoms - Resin Flower Bluebell and Marianne D Vintage Lace Pack - White (JU0824) ...well did you notice the boo boo...I meant to paper piece her book and had it all cut out and ready and completely forgot so I will do it later and re photograph (not only mojoless but woolly headed too)...well duh Mina lol...I'm entering this for the Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia blog challenge, Challenges 4 everyone challenge and the Totally Gorjuss challenge too...I'm having my hair cut today and then off to do some girlie bits with our beautiful Daughter...whatever your up today have a brilliant one and if you have time pop on over to Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge to see what the rest of our amazing team made

Can't wait to see the dress. Bet you look fantastic in a hat...I look silly, mainly because I feel silly, so just KNOW that I look ridiculous. (if that made any sense!) Looking forward to tomorrow's post.

That paper makes a perfect frame Mina. Your new hat looks great but those high heels are quite scary, 8.5 cm! I could never wear those, I struggle with anything higher than 3.5 cm LOL.

Andrea said...

Oh Mina, I want that hat (LOL)- I love hats. I couldn't wear that height of shoes though.
And, of course, your card is beautiful.
Love, Andrea xx
