Eye Candy Plus Papertake Weekly xxx

What more could a girl want!!
I know this lil sweetie is just gorgeous but there's more eye candy later!!

This is my card for this weeks Papertake Weekly which is based on a Dawny sketch. The image is Sugar, one of the Frilly Milly's from Pink Petticoat - I just love her!! I coloured her with PMs and highlighted with Glamour Dust, the sentiment is also PP and the papers are Nitwits.

I made this for Steph's birthday, but due to technical difficulties ie 'someone' forgot to take it to the post office for me on Saturday while I was at the workshop, she won't get it until tomorrow.

But happy birthday chick xxx

Pop over and check out the other girls work cos there are some totally fabulous cards to feast your eyes on.

Talking of which, I mentioned the verrry gorgeous George yesterday and my bloggy pal Gayle said that she preferred Andrew Ridgley when they were in their Wham heyday. So I thought, lets have a butchers at them now - compare and contrast as they say!!!

Steady girls, no hyperventilating now ......






So which one do ya reckon?








Well of course, for me there is no comparison. Have you ever seen such a lovely set of gnashers in your life!! What an incredibly beautiful guy (sigh sigh lol xx)

To be honest, I wasn't really into Wham cos I was probably a bit old for that sort of thing when they had their fame and glory.

But my first love was Donny Osmond. I loved him when I was 13 as only a teenie girl could - I was convinced we would get married!!! And I had loads of pics on my bedroom wall of him, including a double page spread from the Jackie. I put a little piece of sellotape on the bottom edge and I used to fold it up when I was getting me nightie so Donny wouldn't see lol xxx

All together now .........

And they called it Puppy Lo - o - o -ove!!!

Ahhhhh, bless!!

I was obviously fickle cos by the time I was 16 I had been in love with David Cassidy, Marc Bolan, Noddy Holder (Slade, yes him with the gob - how shameful!!) and Bryan Ferry. But Donny, you were my first - the others were just pale imitations!!!! (Like he is ever going to read this - doh!!!)

Here's a thought.
Remember Isla St Claire from The Generation Game? Well, if she had married Barry White, got divorced from him and then married Bryan Ferry, she would have been known as Isla White Ferry!!! Ohh that's awful - and no, I haven't been on the vino (I wish - flippin diet!!)

So who was your first pin up boy then? Pray tell!!

On that note, I'm off for an Options Hot Choc (2 syns) and a read.
See ya tomorra peeps xxxxx

Gasp - that can't be Andrew Ridgley!! OMG! I was a Georgie girl to be fair, never saw anything in Andrew. Didn't see the gay thing though, was convinced I was going to marry him when I grew up!!

This card is just gorgeous Dawn. I love the PP stuff too.

By the way, I know you've had them all a gazillion times but there's a wee summat on my blog for you.

Hugs,

Was it the Ricky Nelson show? I can't remember. But oh my can I ever remember those dreamy eyes and lips singing to me through the TV!! SIGH! LOL!

Well hun couldn't sleep tonight - morning so thought I would do a bit of blog ho[ping might have known you would make me laugh out loud, Now being a BIT older than you my pin up was Billy J Kramer and Billy Fury, but I think I had a regression in my early thirties cos I feel in love with John Travolta, I even had a great big Piccie of him in the downstairs loo. Unfortunately my Foster Boys decided to it was rather undignified for a 30something foster mum to have a pin up and drew glasses spots etc all over my lovely picture. I tell you what though even at my stage in life I wouldn't mind a date with Johnny Depp now What a man.

Gorgeuos card Dawny.
Can't believe that Andrew R looks like that now!! Was never really a Wham fan. I was in love with Martin Kemp from Spandau Ballet, and still hold a bit of a torch for him. He is ageing very well LOL!!!

Julie said...

Definitely David Soul (Hutch from Starsky and Hutch!) I had a thing for Donny Osmond too. Love your card, I am so tempted by those Frillie Millies

Bev said...

Fabulous card sweetie - love those colours and the image is way too adorable!! It's a brilliant sketch to work to as well, you're so clever.

Okay, firstly I was never a GM fan - give me Andrew any day (although he ain't aged too well has he lol)

My first love - oh the shame!!! David Cassidy followed closely by the entire Bay City Rollers crew - gawd I went and saw them a couple of years ago at the arena and cringed!! None of them have aged gracefully and their voices were never that bad all those years ago were they??!! And when David Essex came on the stage and strangled Hold me Close I crawled under the sodding seat with embarrassment pmsl.

And now - well George Clooney any day!! Be still my beating heart - hang on whilst I swoon!!!

Thanks for the giggle babes
