Spring, Bling And Papertake Weekly xxx

Yes, it's all here peeps :)

Please excuse the dreadful editing on this pic - what has happened to her hair, I do not know!! But in all fairness, she looks like a bit of Pantene Pro V wouldn't go amiss!! IRL, it isn't like that so I might re-do this pic if I get a sec.

And there's more slap dash-ness further on as well - dohhhhh!!

But first, it's time for another Papertake Weekly, and this week our theme is Four Seasons.

All you have to do is use colours or things that remind you of a season. I chose fresh pastel colours which remind me of Spring. And I used a High Hopes stamp - and I think this is the first time I've ever used one!!! They are fab and I really enjoyed using this image. The stamps are available over at Dies To Die For :)

So here's the old card. Colured with PMs (natch) and there is tons of Glamour Dust here. Do you like her sparkly toenails? You can maybe see them better on the Pantene pic lol xxxx

The flowers were done with the nesties again and the buttons were from my stash. There's only one paper today (Mad About Cards) as I wanted to keep it reasonably plain to focus more on the image.

So that's it.

And here is yet another classic by the dimwit that is moi!!!


Yes, there is another strip of red backing tape in evidence which I didn't notice until AFTER I edited it and put it on here. If I re-do the pic, then I'll have to re-do the post so here it is and I guess that it will stay to remind everyone that where I am concerned, you can take the blonde out of the hair, but not out of the girl (natural blonde gone grey and now brown courtesy of Mr L'Oreal!!)

It's a short post tonight cos I've been on a jewellery course today (I can now wrap a loop like a pro) but I think I'm tired though cos it took me forever to get the Papertake Weekly post done. I downloaded all the pics, did the post then realised that all the pics were small!! So I had to re-do it. So it has been a day of total numpy-ness all round really (apart from the wrapped loops, which were quite good in the end!!)

So on that note I'm off for a lie down in a dark room and I hope that what brain cells I have left will be refreshed and I will be better tomorrow.



Have a fab night and see ya soon xxxx
