Pretty Pink Friends xxx

Little cuties xxx
Well I am writing this with a bit of a red face.

I wasn't going to say owt, but you know me, warts and all and I'm nothing if not honest!! The challenge over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week is embossing. So I thought I would do a pretty pink card and use a couple of Cuttlebug folders.

You are probably one step ahead of me, and let's face it, it wouldn't be hard sometimes lolxx but there is only one problem. Great big dopey dizzy dimwitted half brained bimbo (ha, I wish!!) that I am, I used a Whipper Snapper stamp!!!

Doh!!!!

The clue Dawny is PENNY BLACK Saturday challenge.

The sad thing is that this is not the first time I have done this, and I suspect it will not be the last either!! I am blaming it on the cold weather and also my age even though I have been doing this sort of thing all of my life and even when it has been warm and sunny lol xxxx

But all is not lost cos I didn't realise that there was now a Cuttlebug Challenge - see I told you I was slooooow :(( I only realised when I popped over to Dawn's blog and saw her card (which is fab!!). So, no harm done, I will use it for that instead.

Paper is PP of course (Little Fleurs which is one of the first downloads I bought but I still just love it) and well, you know what the stamp is!!! I coloured it with PMs - no glamour dust this time though. And the Cuttlebug folders are hearts and the buttons one from the borders folder - verrrrry cute. The sentiment is Pink Cat and the bloom is Poppicrafts. The button is salvaged from one of our Kyla's outgrown things.

And zooooom xxxx

Well I am off to do me work now but have a fab day y'all.

Huggiest of huggles from the dippy one xxxxx
