No 3 - Fabulous Maggie xxx

I so love this image xxx

It is one of my all time fave Sugar Nellie stamps
And would you believe it, but this is the third post today!!
Holy moley, I will be wearing out the Blogland welcome mat xxx

But I did have the most peaceful and quiet afternoon, even if my Aunty didnt (she loves it really :)
So I made hay while the sun shone. Well I made cards while the sun didn't shine, but that don't sound quite right somehow lol xx

I did this one for the Sugar Bowl challenge which is to use one piece of patterned paper only. Well as you know, I do love me papers and I thought this would give me a real headache, but I realised that the layout from the previous card would be perfect as that only uses one.


Et voila lol xxx

Now, just to be different (perish the thought!!), I thought I'd give myself more of a challenge and NOT use any PP paper. I am ashamed to admit this, but I have boxes and boxes of the most beautfiul 12 x 12 paper which I cannot bear to put the scissors near, so I decided I would stop being so utterley ridiculous and use some of that.

Sad thing is, that I found a little piece that I had obviously used before in a previous moment of wild abandon, so I decided to use that bit - but I don't know what it is of where I got it from cos it's been so long since I went in those boxes.

I had a teeny scrap left so I paper pieced her hat and bag - so they match natch, cos they must!!! Of course, the PMs and Glamour Dust were still brought out. Well, when I say brought out, they never really get put away!!

Funny that :))))


The gorgous ribbons are Poppicrafts.

And isn't the pin fab!!!

The lovely and talented Penny, who isn't blogging at the mo, made it and I absolutely love it. I thought the colours would be perfect for this card. Penny if you are reading this chick, I hope all is well with you and I for one cannot wait for you to start up again cos you are such an inspiration and I miss your fabulous work, truly.

So this is the last card for today.

I have just been watching Dancing On Ice and I'm just waiting for the results.
Ohh I yell ya, Ray Quinn is awesome - how fantastic was he!!!! And wasn't Ruth Henshall horrible to Roxy, who I cannot stand (but I do love Dan, before Kath wallops me!!!). I may not like the girl but at least I know her name. I thought it was really poor of Ruthie - she is obviously picking up nasty bits from Jason, the crabby old boot!!!!. Back to the West End for you love if you can't be a bit nicer I say!!!!

Loved Jessica and Pavel, although I am reminded of his skanky grey undies every time I look at him, poor lad!!! I do wish I wasn't cos it does sort of detract from his awesome skating. He has such a sweet face though. And I loved Zoe as well - espesh the music. There is something about Mamma Mia that just makes you want to get up and dance - or is that just me!!!. I think tonight it might be Colleen and Donal who are in the skate off, but we'll see.

So that is it for this evening peeps. I'll be back tomorra for Papertake Weekly, but till then, have the most fabulous of evenings.

Huggiest of hugs xxxxx

Sam said...

Great card, lovely colour. I've got this stamp and use her quite often, as she is suitable for children or grown ups cards. Must have a go at making one of these pins.
I am the same about cutting papers, have to have an anaesthetic (sp?) before I cut into them so its good to know I am not alone LOL!!

Hello Dawny, another gorgeous card from yourself. Love this sugar nellie image too and you've coloured it perfectly. Love the colour combination you've used, and i know what you mean about cutting up those 12 x 12 papers. I tend to use my little 6 x6 pads first. I promised myself not to buy any more papers till i used alot of what i had, i was doing well till i saw the new Basic Grey papers!! Love the Dancing on Ice show too, and Ray is just sensational. Can not understand Jessica being in the skate off, thats not right. Well hun enjoy your week, looking forward to more beautiful creations from you! hugs Linda x

Lovely card. I love the really nice colours.

I agree, Ray is fab! Isn't it funny how the two judges that are really nasty are the two that are dancers and not skaters??!!
