Now I have to say that I haven't got the balance and LO quite right on this card, but on the plus side, I love the colour palette. Even if it doesn't look exactly right here due to bad light!!
But not to worry. This is my card for 2 challenges. Firstly this week's Spoonful of Sugar challenge 26, Bloomin Marvellous which is to use flowers or floral paper. And the other one is The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge 7 - Cute As A Button.
There are 2 blooms and 1 button so I think it qualifies for both lol xxx
The ribbon, brad and blooms are Poppicrafts, the paper is PP and Tilda has been coloured with Pro Markers.
But wait, I hear you cry, there is not a scrap of Glamour Dust in sight!!!! Ahhh, but the old punch is there again, bless it.
Another Tilda, this time she's giggling - must be something in
that bauble lol xxx
This one is for the Magnolia Vs Stampavie week 3, tie that sketch. As before, paper is PP, ribbons are Raspberry Ribbons (sheer and satin) and Poppicrafts (spotty) and the sentiment is Woodware.
You know the rest hee hee xxx
3 down, 1 to go.
At the NEC, I bought some Penny Black stamps, including this one, so natch I did this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is Monocromatic. I'm not a 'brown' person as a rule, but I love the PP leopardy paper. The spotty paper is Dinky Dots - can't find the link now, sorry peeps.
I used my American Crafts Thickers for the first time. I coloured them with PMs and they seem to have gone a bit streaky - I think it looks ok and it sort of goes under these circumstances, but I can see that there will be times when I don't want it to happen. Any tips anyone that's used them??
Or perhaps Tilda is giggling at this .....
I just have to share this with you cos it really REALLY made me laugh.
Kyla is going to be in her first 'play' at nursery - she is a star. Not THE star, just A star, but hey, if it hadn't been for a star, who knows where the wise men and the shepherds would have ended up. Although they would have to go some to beat me - I set off for Abersoch once and ended up on Anglesey (it's so true xx ). It was in the day before Sat Nav, although not in the days before maps!!!
But I digress.
She has been practising her Christmas songs, bless her, at full pelt, and usually when she is in the bath (maybe she knows more about echoes and acoustics than we give her credit for!!).
So tonight she was singing her version of 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas'. What she actually sings is 'We Miss You A Merry Christmas', but we get the jist. But it's the middle bit that gets me. Did you know, it actually goes 'tidy up your things for you and your kings?'
No, me neither (snigger snigger, naughty grandma for laughing).
Now I have to admit that I am a big softie and I always cry when I hear kids singing - even on the telly. I cried at every one of my kids' play - yeah very embarrassing for them I know, especially when they were 16 (joke lol xxx). Maybe this time though, they may be tears of laugher!!!!
Oh do e-mail me your funny stories re the dinks and their songs. I'll gather them all together and do a special post near Christmas if we get enough.
Off for a long over due blog hop now.
See ya soon xxxxx
