Paperlate Weekly :(o

Ohh I am sooo late getting this on here. What a palaver!!! Between power cuts, kids and work, I tell you peeps I had a complete nightmare yesterday.

Anyway it's done now.

So this lil cutie is having her first airing and she is Susanne, one of the new Boefje stamps which are now available at Dies To Die For (there's loads of other new stuff in as well).

Check out the rest of the range here, and if someone could tell me how to pronounce Boefje, I'd be ever so grateful (I thought it might be something like Buffy, but I'm probably wrong lol xxx)

But however you say it she is verrry sweet I think. I used her for our challenge over at Papertake Weekly which this week is a sketch .......

... this one here.
Nice and straightforward and simple - just like me :)

But I think there's a lot of scope with this one which isn't immediately obvious and I have to say that this is one I'll use again and again.

And this is what I did with it.

Unlike most of the work I put on here, this is actually for someone (you probably could tell that and you probably worked out that it's for Erin lol!!)

You also probably worked out that she's been coloured and sprinkled with PMs and Glamour Dust as well.

I got the white satin ribbon at The Paper Mill Shop and it was £3.99 for 22 metres. We used it for card club on Monday and there is still loads left.

Most of the papers are PP, but I don't know where the pink gingham is from, sorry peeps. And there's the SU scalloped punch back again, which I got from the lovely Mandy :)

I used some American Crafts Thickers (Hobbycrap, I THINK) and gave them the bling treatment. As there wasn't enough space to put the dot on the 'I', I used a little pink gem instead.

The teeniest bit of dimension and it's done.

There is a great prize up for grabs this week and some totally fab DT cards, as always, so nip over and have a nosey when you get a sec :)

And have a great day. I am just waiting for the farmer to come and sort our septic tank out (soz to anyone who happens to be eating!!) and there is a heap of stuff to do for work so that's my day sorted!!! I am living the dream today for sure lol xxx

I might get chance later tonight to have a bit of a crafty half hour, but we'll see. I could seriously do with a few more hours in the day at the mo!!

See ya soon xxxx

Ooooh Dawny, I like your card and the sketch looks like one I might find myself having a go at once I've got a spare few mins :)
