Little Cutie xxx

This is Penelope - she's ever so sweet xx

This is my first card for a Pollycrafts Challenge, and when I saw that it was flowers and ribbons, well, how could I not have a go!!! So I used the lovely Penelope (from Pollycrafts) and coloured her with PMs (yawn yawn!!). I decoupaged the daisy for a bit of dimension - you can just about see it.

The ribbons are from the very wonderful Poppicrafts and the not so wonderful (cos it is a completely disorganised jumble) Dawny's stash. Ohhh disaster, cos I used the last bit of that fabby gingham, and I cannot for the life of me remember where I got it it from, sob sob. The papers are all PP and the flowers are teeny tiny punched ones - hope they still count!!

I keep moving back to the gorgeous pink / pale green / black colour combo, being the creature of habit that I am. Sorry, it must be like Groundhog Day when you come and visit here lol xxxx. And talking of which, can you guess what else I used? Ay, it's there alright. But quite honestly I don't know why I bothered cos you can hardly see it.

What a waste of time that was lol xxxx


Here's the arty shot again!!!

You can see the daisy better here, and also you can now see what I mean about Martha Stewart's finest wasting it's time turning up on this card, cos even in close up - and you couldn't get much nearer really without it being shoved up yer nostrils - you can still hardly see it.

Sometimes I worry about myself lol xxx
Maybe I am just addicted to that lil old piece of metal and have to sneakily stick it on whether it's needed or not. And it's not in this case, I know that.

But sadly, I did it anyway!!!

I'll be back tomorrow and I'll do me best to actually make a card without the punch. You never know, I may even leave the PM's alone as well. What do ya think?

No, me neither lol xxx

She is a cutie. Its good to be a creature of habit, isnt it? More to the point, I may pass out if you didnt make a card using you MSBP. It is gorgeous Dawny and I too love this colour combo.
Ooh, I feel a little poppicrafts competition coming on - I may title it "No PMS or MSBPs" What d'ya think??? lol...
