A Right Pair!!!!!

No I'm not talking about the cards!!!! My flippin cold has now developed into an achey, snotty nosed (wayyyy TMI - sorry) sore throat of a cold, and to top it all, my Emma has got shingles!!!!
Anyway ....

This one is actually for someone - can't say who - but it is also for the Spoonful of Sugar challenge which this week is based on one of Nikkie's fabulous sketches. I loved doing this one I have to say and I am so getting into using my Pro Markers that I rather think my watercolours and Prismas are a thing of the past??? I NEVER thought I would say that, but I just love them. The papers are PP and the ribbons are the completely gorgeous Raspberry Ribbons. The blooms are Poppicrafts and the bling is from
Creative Pastimes in Ellesmere Port. Hi girls xxxx

Now if you read my post earlier in the week, you will know that I made a card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge,which this week is One For The Girls, and only realised once I had made it that I hadn't actually used a Penny Black image!!! Sadly, this is true lol xxx Now I don't actually have many PB stamps, and the ones I have are either for Christmas or Easter. So I was just about to have a diva strop cos I can't go and buy any just now due to a) just buying the Pro Markers and b) being the wrong side of pay day (cry cry). Then I remembered my lovely blog bug Jill had sent me some PB images - thanks chicken xxx - so I used one of them !! Paper is again PB, the ribbon is from Hobbycraft andf the little sentiment is from ScrapNFonts - Frilly Words. Pearly stuff is from Creative Pasimes in Ellesmere Port. And that punched border???? Well this is my new Fiskars Threading Water punch which I got here but which sadly are out of stock at the mo (another cry cry lol xxx)

TFS and hope you all have a nice, sniff free day - unlike me :( xxxx
