Cheeky Lilac and Cheeky Girl xx

Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend xxx
We have just been out for dinner for Richard's birthday (yesterday) and we are both stuffed!!! My pud of warm chocolate brownie with hot choc sauce and real vanilla ice cream was gorge but it was a bridge too far!!! So the diet book is coming out on Monday (not tomorrow cos we have a house full for Sunday lunch and they are expecting roast beef and all that goes with it). And then it's back to fat club for me - eat dust!!!!!
Anyway, before I waddle back into my craft room and do a couple of challenges, I thought I would share these with you. Here are a couple more Raspberry Ribbons Loving Lilac designs from next month's kit.
Firstly, a cheeky little number .....
The paper and image are both PP, ribbons are RR, naturellement (check out that beautiful wide grosgrain, it is just the prettiest shade of lilac), and what is that gorgeous lacy border I wonder??? Could it be my MSBP????? Now I happen to know that Martha Doo Dah has sold right out of these punches and I think it is cos there has been a bit of a Brit invasion :)
But I have to tell you here and now that an interloper has arrived at chez Dawny and my beloved punch now has a rival.... all will be revealed soon lol xxx
But speaking of Martha, here's another - one of the very talented Kerry's Spiral Whispers stamps. The paper is Pocket Full Of Posies. And what a neat link from one card to the other - I should be on the telly!!!
And finally, a bit of sheer Grandma indulgence!! Kyla went to a party last Saturday and it was fancy dress. Her first choice of outfit was Bob The Builder !! Unfortunately we weren't able to do that one lol xx In the end she went as a ladybird!!! Awwww, these pics were too nice to keep to myself and I glow with pride, as only a grandma can, every time I look at them!!!

Here she is in all her chubby glory ...
Have a great Saturday night and see you tomorrow xxxx

Oh Dawny ...what a dear sweet child she is.....don't you just glow when you look at them....I know my love for Riley and Poppi is so strong, it overpowers me sometimes.............they came for the day yesterday (poor Mich is still trying to decorate and lay floors in the house)we spent the day in the garden and had the most wonderful time, playing hide and seek and other childlike games......I cherish each and every moment.....

Tell little one going as a ladybird certainly gets my vote!!lol

Love both of the cards Dawny, but just couldn't keep my eyes off of the beautiful Ladybug, what wonderful photos and what a little darling she looks, no wonder you are a proud Grandma. That pud sounds a bit nice!!!, there is one good thing about eating dust honey think of the money you will save to spend on new crafty goodies
Hugs jacqui xxxxx (ps Thanks for your lovely comments, wish we were nearer a coffee sounds great, don't get out much)
