Small But Perfectly Formed Tilda xxx

She's very small but verry sweet xx

I got her at the NEC earlier in the year from Mr Magnolia himself, and this is the first time she has seen ink - shame on me!!

She is a teeny tiny stamp and I think they were only selling them at the show - but don't quote me!!

Anyhoos, I thought I'd use her for this week's Papertake Weekly, which is one of me sketches. It's this one here -


It's also a bit special at PTW this week cos it is our first featured sponsor challenge. And our sponsor is none other than Simon Says Stamp!!! There is a $20 and free shipping voucher up for grabs so please don't miss it peeps cos Heidi has some fabulous stuff at her store.

And the fabulous DT girlies have done some brilliant stuff as always, so nip over and have a look if you get a sec. It's all good :))x



So this is my take on the sketch.
The mini image fitted it perfectly and I coloured it with PMs but no Glamour Dust tonight!!

It is a twinke-free zone lol xx


The papers are all PP - Little Fleurs and also Elegant Swirls and Mini Little Dots all in Pretty Pink (one of my fave PP shades).

The teeny pearls were from Creative Pastimes. They are having an open day this coming weekend cos it is their 6th birthday, so if you are in the area, pop in. There will be demos and all sorts going on.

Sadly I can't demo cos Emma is going to a wedding and she will be out all day and all night, so I am hooligan sitting!! There is no way on God's green earth that I am taking her with me. Too many little fingers and too much crafty stuff - not a good mix!!


The blooms were part of my prize from Simon Says Stamp and the buttons are American Crafts.

Big blooms ....

And little blooms.

And the delish ribbon is from the US.


And here's the funny angle.
A fair bit of dimension going on here.
It is actually for someone's birthday but I can't say who right now!!

Well hasn't it been hot!!

I can't really stand too much heat to be honest. I've got blue eyes and blonde hair (well it was before it went wishy washy grey and I went au L'Oreal), so I think I must have Viking blood somewhere, and they were used to cooler temps!!


There are fans going all over our house and it feels a bit like being in a wind tunnel, but at least we are fairly cool. Richard is insisting on salads - yuk, puke and bluh. It wasn't all bad however, cos he also insisted on the cherry pie which we bought at the Cheshire Show - Lime Pantry. If you've never had one, ohh you are missing a treat.

Here. have a butchers at this ...


You can buy them on line but they are a bit pricey to be honest, so we only have them when we go to things like the CS.

Mind you, if I remember rightly they were are the NEC!! The pastry is yum and the filling is yummier. Consequently, I am sitting here like a Buddha - except I'm not bald. I really must start (re-start) me diet again.

Thank God for comfy cotton pjs. The winceyette ones are strictly for winter months!!!

So on that blubbery note, I am off to do a bit more crafty stuff. I hope you are all having a fab night, and enjoying the tennis. What a match last night!!!

Stay cool and enjoy the fab weather xxxx

Suzanne said...

Another gorgeous card. I love it when it's a sunny hot, Dawny but sadly, we are getting the heat but not the sun. It's a horrible close, muggy sort of feeling. Hard to describe. Foggy mornings and evenings and sunny tea-times.

Hiya Dawny

Fabby card. Love those flowers and I'm loving your sketches just now. I know what you mean about little fingers and crafty stuff. They're spotless when they go in and all of a sudden something odious magically appears on their mitts just when they touch something! Definitely a no-no.

I thought Andy was a gonner on Monday. I'm blaming it all on that s*****g roof!
