Not only because they are the same colours, but also cos they match in the -truly awful photograph stakes :(
Ohh the light has been dreadful tonight and as it happens, the old camera doesn't much care for red and green at the best of times, so these are not so much Norman Parkinson, but more Norman Wisdom lol xxx.
This one is for Cute Card Thursday which is Red & Green.
I got this Sugar Nellies image last week and I just loves it - soooo sweet :) I used my new nesties labels set which I got from the NEC and also the sentiment which was from Butterfly Kisses.
The papers are PP's Really Big Dots and it was coloured with my dynamic duo of PMs and Glamour Dust highlights. Creature of habit that I clearly am lolxxx Ribbon is Poppicrafts
'Scuse the skew-wifty-ness of the ribbon btw - I should have straightened it before taking the pic (doh!!)This one is my first card for my awesomely talented and very lovely DT bud Kim's sketch challenge. This is #2 - a fantabulous little number - pop over and check it out here. Love this sketch Kim - thank you chicken xxxx
Dontcha just love the expression on the pengies face!! A bit like mine when I realised the ribbon on the other card wasn't straight lol xxx
Both image and sentiment are Butterfly Kisses, the papers are PP (I am so loving those washed solids at the mo), the holly is Making Hand Made Cards and the ribbon set at an ever so jaunty angle is Poppicrafts :))
We (my eldest Nikkie and I) had a great day on Friday at the NEC. I was ever so good and did not bankrupt us. In fact, I was well under budget!!! Tis indeed a first. High spot was meeting up with Marlene (she is fab!!) and low spot was getting stuck in a horrible traffic jam and not getting home until well past 8pm.
Had a very weird thing happen this afternoon. My niece came round to see us and as she was leaving, I walked to her car with her and waited as she was strapping her little boy into his car seat. I felt something nudging my foot (I had no shoes on, just my thick fleecy sex kitten socks) and thinking it was our cat, carried on gabbing to my niece and not taking too much notice. The nudging got more persistant so I looked down and I could not believe my eyes. It was a ruddy ferret!!! From whence it came I do not know, and if the stories of stuffing them down yer trewsers are true then I really don't want to know either (what an unsavoury pastime lol xxx) but I tell you, I have never run so fast into the house.
Cheeky little beggar!!!!
And finally ....
Arthur is back.
Woohoo, Mrs Wonka's errant boy has returned, thin, thirsty and hungry but in one piece. I do so love a happy ending lol xxx
See ya tomorrow for another fabulous Papertake Weekly xxxxx
