Love Birds For Papertake Weekly xxx

I love these.

These are the Love Birds from the very wonderful Sally-Ann at DigiStamp Boutique. There are 4 in the collection and they are all gorgeous. You can see them here.

Sally-Ann is our sponsor this week over at Papertake Weekly (thank you chick xx) so don't forget to pop over and check it out cos there is a nice something up for grabs :)xx

So this is my card.

I seem to have gone with the black and white theme again - but with a bit of red thrown in for good measure. It's funny, but I often make 2 or 3 cards along the same lines. Possibly cos the papers etc have not been put straight away so they are staring me in the face lolxxx

But I like the clean look of this little darlin :)x.

I added just a teeny bit of colour - red and grey PMs. Not too much though, cos I didn't want to overpower the image. Of course, there is a sprinkling of Glamour Dust, natch lol xx!!

The paper is Nancy Kubo So Sweet - it's a beggar to get hold of but I think you can get it here.



My wonderful friend sent me the ribbon from the US and the red button was from my stash. I coloured a bit of thin string with a black PM and tied it onto the button. I also got it all over my hands and a bit of the ink is still there on the button - ooops!!!


The sentiment is also from the collection - I cropped it off the image so that it went over the top of it.

Once again I used loads of dimension here.

I used the same LO as I did on my summer Tilda card, but I cannot for the life of me remember where I saw it, and stupidly didnt write it down. So I cannot give credit - sorry. But I nicked it from somewhere cos it isn't one of mine!! Nice though I think.

Well the sun has come out again - hurray!!! Not that I am one for sunbathing, but I do like to sit in the garden and enjoy the peace and quiet (until Kyla gets home of course then bedlam returns lolxxx)

But the weather is fabulous for Wimbledon. No Rafa this year sadly. Maybe he heard we weren't going this time (cry, sob, sniff). It won't be the same without him - he is rather gorge isn't he, even if he does have one of the hungriest bums on the planet (it must be cos it always seems to be eating his shorts lol xx).

So me and Tricky Dicky are staying at home and stocking up, and no doubt (pink) pigging out, on Pimms and strawberries and cream. In some way it's nicer at home cos you can watch the match you want to watch. But there is something about the atmosphere at SW19 that is just fantastic.

I'll miss going for sure.

So don't forget to check out the challenge lovelies - there are some fab DT cards, as well as 2 fab guest designers. It's all happening over there.

Have the fabbiest of days xxx
