Hope And Grace xxx

I'm never sure which is which, but they are both gorgeous.
And you can get them over at the very wonderful Dies To Die For.

I've not used this image before but I will use it again I'm sure. She is so lovely to colour and the image is a really good size. I used her for this week's Friday Sketcher's Challenge which is a fab sketch by Heidi :)

And here's my card.

Of course, I used the old PMs and Glamour Dust to colour - well they're all I've got now apart from the Aqua PMs (not fussed to be honest) and some watercolour pencils (still love them). I keep telling myself that one of these day I will use them again to remind myself how nice they are!!

As she is a bit of a tomboy, I wanted to use some boy-ish colours but I also wanted to keep it pretty as well. And I thought that these Nitwits papers were perfect. Sorry for the blurry pic here - ohh that's bad isn't it!!!


The teeny pearls were from Creative Pastimes in Ellesmere Port.

And so were the bigger pearls.

Both ribbons were from my local florists warehouse.
And of course, the punch had to make an appearance lol xx
I did a triple layer with it which you can sort of see here.

The usual bit of dimension, and that's my card.


I hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday. We're having a fairly quiet day as Miss Kyla has gone out so we are going to do a bit more to the garden. The weather is pleasant -not too hot but not too cold so with a bt of luck, we will get lots done this afternoon.


Well that's the plan, but it always goes wrong when we say we are going to do something!!!


I may see you tomorrow if I get my butt into gear but if not, I'lll see you Tuesday for another Papertake Weekly.

Hi Dawny.....such a sweet and soft looking card....I think it is the lovely ribbon that makes it....

Hope that you managed to get some gardening done and that you and Richard are both well and happy.

Do tell him I watched a tawny owl swoop on a mouse the other day. I watched from the kitchen window, it was dusk, such an amazing sight......
