A Pic Fest For Cute Card Thursday xx

Ahhh, aren't they sweet xx

It was my last week as GD over at Cute Card Thursday and I would just like to say a huge thank you to the girls for having me xx

'scuse the dreadful lighting here but I could not get it to look right.
IRL the colours are much softer.

The challenge this week is Music & Dance, so musical instruments, song titles etc etc, I chose song titles. The card above is Kiss (by Prince and also the wrinkly old goat that is Tom Jones. Sorry if you are a fan, but I cannot abide him!!)

The Sarah Kay image which is one of my faves was coloured and highlighted with the dynamic duo that are my PMs and Glamour Dust lol xxx The papers are a mixed bunch - PP, Nitwits and Willow. I had some left over from the Frilly Milly card I did recently and thought I'd use them here seeing as I luvs em so much :))x
Ohhh the lighting is horrible here - it makes this look garish, sorry.
I may re-take this cos it is so awful. But I put the pic in so you can see the flower a bit better. Bet you wish I hadn't bothered lol xxx.

I made the flower by drawing lines on a piece of card with 2 PMs - use the chiselled end - and then I punched out the shape usign an EK Success Retro punch. I got the idea from Sharon and you can see it all here.

And there's a bit of funkyity faux stitching as well. Try saying that when you've had a few lol xxx

As it was my last week at CCT, I thought I would do 2 cards - this is the one that is over at the blog. Now I will warn you , you are about to enter the 'cringe' zone.

He's a cutie lil fella.

So this is the second card, and the song?
I Will Always Love You (Whitney and the big guns that are Dolly P).

As you can see, I 'adapted' the title slightly to fit the fabulous stamp which is from Whimsystamps, hence the cringe. I know it is a bit corny, but hey ho lol xxx Considering my unmitigating disaster yesterday, the fact that it meets the challenge is nowt short of a miracle lol xxx

The papers are from PP and from the Boy Oh Boy collection by the awesomely talented Summer Driggs, and the blooms are from my beloved Poppicrafts xx Mich has some beautiful stuff in right now including some of the prettiest spring ribbon and blooms ever. Check it out peeps xxx

Is anybody going to the trade show at the NEC over the weekend btw? I am going on Sunday so if you are going to be there and fancy saying howdy to moi (or the piggish pink one as Leann calls me lol xxx) let me know!!

Laurence Llewellyn Bowen is going to be there, and I do have a bit of a thing for him actually. It's the tousled hair I think. And he is so well dressed. And he is a bit posh which I sort of like :)) I have sort of met him before. Well, when I say I have met him, he was at the NEC the last time I went to the trade show there. I went with a friend of mine who insisted on referring to him as Roddy lol xxx

Anyway, I was too shy to go and say hello. My friend was not too shy and she went to see him and she took a book of mine with her (the book wot he wrote, natch) and he signed it for me - how fabulous. He insisted she went and got me so I could go and say hello but I had ran off, dragging her wheelie trolley behind me as fast as my little legs would take me and I refused to go and meet him.

So when I say I sort of met him, I didn't really meet him, but I did stand within a few feet of him. When I told my eldest, she laughed and said she had sort of met George Clooney. Well when she said she had met him, there was a cardboard cut out of him in the local video shop and she had stood by it.

I don't know where she gets her wit from!!!!

And on that note, I'm off for a reasonably early night. Emma is unwell so I am on 'monitor' duty re Kyla tonight and will need to get up with her in the morning and get her ready for nursery.

Have a fab evening chicks

Hey Dawny! Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I am really impressed by the PMs, they are unlike any other pen I've tried before... Your idea of compare and contrast with watercolours vs PMs is a good one, can't wait to see it one day! Love the cards on your blog, all beautiful designs :-) Dulcie xx
