Pink 'n' Black 'n' 2 Fab Friends xxxx

This takes me back a bit, getting all glammed up, ready for a night on the town!!! Mind you, it was quite a few years back now, but at least I can still remeber them lol xx!

I am slowly getting back into the Blogland swing of things, and I thought I'd do a couple of challenges. I have to say that the old mojo is not playing ball at the mo, the beggar, but I refuse to panic or give in.

The pink piggy will not be beaten!!!

This is my card for this week's Colour Create challenge, which is black, white and pink. Well I didn't need to be told twice cos I love this colour combi - you may have noticed!!! I also love this LO as well, cos I have used it so many times. But being mojo-erly challenged like I am at the mo, I needed all the help I could get lol xx

So I thought I'd use this stamp cos it is just soooo girlie and suited the challeneg so well and apart from that, I just love it. It's the Best Friends stamp from the very wonderful Dulcie at Wild Rose Studios and you can check it out here.

I know I've said it before but these stamps don't half stamp up nicely. Clear and crisp and no feathering at all - marvellous!!

So the good girlies were coloured with the bad boys (PMs!!) and I added some Glamour Dust, cos it's what I always do!!

I used it for the sequins on their dresses - very glam!!

And I also used it on the brads which were from Poppicrafts - I think they look pretty cool with a bit of bling!! The pink ribbon is also Poppicrafts - fab stuff - and the black and white bit is literally the last bit from my stash. The little black dots are peel offs (gasps of horror, ohhhh no !!!) which I had to use in the absence of any little black beads. I so need to get my lardy butt to the shops and get more more more!!!!

The old faithful MSBP came out to play. I have had probs with this little beggar when I have been trying to punch very thin paper. But I found that if you use 2 sheets of thin paper together, it works really well.

On the subject of MSBPs, keep your eyes peeled over at Dies To Die For cos Tracy is expecting some more of these babies verrrry soon.

I have to say a huge thank you to Jenny for giving me this award as well. Thank you chick - it is fabulous and I love it.

OK, you remember I told you that Kyla has dveleoped a bit of thing for the Wizard of Oz (or the Vizabee Foz as she calls it!!!).

Well, she wanted a dress like Glinda (or Cinder, as she calls her!!). So her Aunty Nikkie said she would make her one. So off we went to Hobbycraft, and we found some material and she made her one yesterday,. We then went to Claire's Accessories and got her a wand and a crown.

One very happy little girl.

Please excuse the pics here - I was messing about with them in Photoshop and clearly I don't know what I am doing with it - still have me 'L' plates on lol !!

And also, please excuse Kyla's messy hair - she literally had just got back from nursery and she is always a bit on the rammy side (well, I think she must have had a good day if she is a bit mucky!!)

But I could bite chunks out of those pudgy little arms - awwww!!!

While we were in Hobbycraft, we found some red sequinned material and it just seemed perfect for ..... yes, you can probably guess lol xx

So I nicked a pair of her pink plazzie ones from her dressing up box and got me hot glue gun out and also some red ribbon. And before you could say 'there's no place like home', she had her very own pair of .... ....

ruby slippers!!
Jimmy Choo, eat yer heart out!!!

Sadly, it means that we will have to watch that sodding film even more now cos she wants to wear her new stuff.

We didn't think this through, did we!!!

Let's just hope she doesn't want to be a munchkin or the 'cowaby lion'!!!

I hopefully will be back later cos I am in the middle of a card for new challenge, so see you then. Have the most fabulous of Fridays xxxxx
