Fairies And Willow Sketchies xxx

I can't believe how quickly the last 2 weeks have gone!!!!
Tis my age no doubt!!!

But it is time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge, and this week our sketch has been designed by the fabulous Katy. Now being WSC, there has to be a twist, cos that's what we do xx

And this week, out twist is that we want to see dotties and stripes on your card.

So this is my card.

We have all used the new Willow download called A Walk In The Park - you can see it here. I have to say that it is one of my fave downloads cos there are loads of fab things on it and it comes ready coloured or in black and white and just waiting to meet up with the PMs - or whatever colouring doodahs float yer boat.

But the PMs float mine, as you know lol xxx

I used some Willow and PP papers and did a bit of paper piecing ....

... here on the trees

and I also gave lil cutie fairy girlie a nice spotty pink dress.

The other girls have really come up trumps I think, and their cards are really fab - pop over and have a lookie lol xxxx

So I have super dooper fantastic news, good-ish news and a little bit bad news. In reverse order ....

The bad-ish news?

I was intending to return on Tuesday night, but Emma had a bump in her car - no injuries, thankfully (she was shaken but not stirred !!). Someone pulled out of a side road onto a main road in front of her. The other lady was very upset but the main thing is that only the cars were hurt, and even then, only a little bit. But it gives you a bit of a fright when it happens.

The good-ish news?
I survived the dentist.
I was a quivering shambling wreck but nevertheless I went. My dentist is just the gentlest, she really is, so she did the de-coking for me and then gave me some mouthwash to bring home - a different one from the one I usually use. I tell you, it has a real numbing effect so next time I go to see driller killer aka as the hygienist, I am so going to use it. I wont feel a thing - it's marvellous!!

And the super dooper fantastic news???

Ahhhhh well, I will be back later to share, but in the meantime, I'll give you a clue. It has something to do with wild roses ........

See ya later chicksies xxxxx

Oooh aren't you being all cryptic with your hint. I'm all smug coz you told me about it and it's WORTH WAITING UP FOR!!! Sorry, didn't mean to shout! lol.

This is a great card Dawn, the mix of spots and stripes is gorge!

Glad the dentist wasn't as bad as you thought it would be. I'm a wee bit of a freak when it comes to the hygienist - I like the pain coz I like the clean feeling you get after! That's wierd right??

Off to make a card.

Hugs,
Caryn xxx
