Rose Pink Sugar xxx

They're the 3 challenges for this card xxx

And they are ....
The Pink Elephant challenge which is pink, black & white - gorgeous colours

Spoonful of Sugar
, which is Doodle Doo lol xxx

And finally, Roses on Paper, which was to create a card using the masking technique.

So the stamp is a Tilda sitting on her tree swing, coloured with PMs and then Glamour Dusted to within an inch of it's life!!! The paper is Willow Design - I am so loving that pink spotty paper, it is so pretty, and the black and white gingham is Prima Hybrid. The ribbon is a tiddly bit from my stash.


And when it came to using my MSBP, I used not one, but two of the beggars - oooh la la!!! The sentiment is from God knows where, but as I am ready to slap myself senseless for being a total numptie (yet again lol xx), I can't be bothered getting up off my fat you know what and going to look (sorry peeps xxxx). On the plus side, it aint as fat as it was 4 weeks ago, but still .....

Here's the dodgy angle bit again. And another one just for good measure. Some might call it overkill, but I prefer good measure !!!

So, why am I ready to slap myself sensless?

Well, we need to recap the challenges.

Firstly, Pink Elephant wanted pink, black and white. Yes, got that. And SFOS wanted doodling, so got that as well. And Roses on Paper wanted us to use the masking technique. Yes I did that - took me ages as well.

So what's the problem you may ask. Or if you've already been over there then you'll probably know!!!.

Well Roses on Paper also wanted the card to be a Valentines card and they also wanted roses on it somewhere. It clearly says it. The roses bit it in red - you cannot fail to miss it. But I clearly did miss it. Cos it isn't really a Valentines card, and you can look from now until the cows come home but you won't find a rose on it anywhere. Unless it counts that one of the PMs I used is rose pink (it really is, I'm not making it up!!)

I just realised when I went over to get the link. Yes, Dozy Dawny has struck again. And I have to nerve to tell Gayle that Boots are doing special offers on eye tests cos she liked Cary Grant!!!! Well chick, I apolgise unreservedly cos my flippin eyesight is evidently shocking!!

Maybe I am turning into Donald Pleasance in The Great Escape - if you remember he did so much close up work doing his forgeries that he went blind. Well that's me with me cards. Ohh I just realised, we have the same initials lol xxxx He was shot and clearly I should be. I have so much in common with that man it is scary - I am actually frightening myself as I type this cos I don't wanna go bald!! Ohhh it is even worse, cos that's not all - I had a white Persian cat as well!!

I may be back tomorrow. That's if 007 doesn't get here first.

You may laugh but this may well be my future ....

What an absolutely amazing card I love it and 2 Martha Stewart punches too - steady!!! I love Tilda and your card sets her off to perfection - the sentiment is fabulous. Oh I did laugh reading about you 'getting off your etc' - I've felt like that so many times when doing a post and you can't remember the name of the company.

Anyway sorry I'm rambling - it's a great card and thanks for entering the Pink Elephant Challenge this week. Hope you'll be able to join us in the future so we can see more of your work.
