Pink & Grey - How Gorge xxxx

I'm back!!!

And how sweet are these cutie lil sausages xxx

They are the inspiration over at the Colour Create Challenge this week, which is pink and grey. Not that I thought you wouldn't have guessed lol xxx You can also do cute and cuddly, but I just went for the cute bit :))

I love this challenge cos I am just dotty about colour, so this is right up my street. And I will be doing this challenge again, that is a certainty lol xxx

So I used another one of my new Tildas.
Awww they are sweet. My kids do not like them at all - in fact, Emma goes further than that. But I loves the little darlins xxx No accounting for taste is there!!

So the paper is PP and of course, you know the rest. The flower was punched (it was giving me lip lol xxx) and the teeny pink pearls are from Creative Pastimes. You will also probably recognise the sketch cos it is one of my faves.

In fact, it will be appearing again shortly ..... maybe later today, cos I really am on a roll at the mo.

I've tried to go all arty farty with me camera - well when I say camera, I mean with the photo editing. I thought I'd mask the edges a little - just for the sheer hell of it. Make it a bit more windswept and interesting, as Billy Big Yin would say.

Well I could well be back later cos Richard is cleaning the aviaries (totally gross, there aren't enough Marigolds in the world to persuade me to do that). Emma and Kyla are visiting my aunty and uncle. Sorry AJ if you are reading this, cos your Sunday peace and quiet has probably been shattered, but mine however is just fantastic !!!!!!!)

If I don't return, I'll see you tomorrow for another Papertake Weekly - it might be a sketchie-poo, you never know xxxx

Hi Dawny......Pink and grey are gorgeous......two colours that I love together.....but it has to be the right pink and the right grey....
Card is the perfect colour combination and the image is everso cute.

I hope you took Richard a nice cup of tea while he was cleaning the aviary......

oh I've never done a card with just pink and grey. It's gorgeous, will have to give it a try.
I love Tilda but my boyfriend hates her. He says it's because she doesn't have a mouth.
By the way love the layout too... love everything about this card in fact.
