Strictly Disappointing, Wonder Kid and A Bit of Anya Too :)

But in reverse order lol xxx
I hope everyone is having a fab Sunday :)x

Over at Anyone For Anya this week, our challenge is Funky Flowers. You can use home made or bought flowers or even flowery paper - it is up to you.

And there is a fabulous sentiments set up for grabs which has been sponsored by the loveliness that is Tracy at Dies To Die For. And there are lots of awesome team cards as well for you to feat yer eyes on.

I decided to use another image from my Miss Anya Dressy sets which of course you can get at DTDF

So this is what I did.

I thought I'd use this colour combi because it is so fresh and clean looking, and also a bit unusual. But I do love putting different colours together and as long as there aren't too many and they have a similar 'hue', it usually will work quite nicely.

I coloured this little Miss in with the old PMs and I got the Glamour Dust out again after it's rest. There isn't a lot on here - just enough to give a little sparkle :)

My funky flowers are punched and the centres are from Craftwork Cards

The papers are Pink Petticoat, but I made the soft lime colour up in Paint, printed it out then ran it through the printer again and over-printed the PP dotty paper on the top so it matched the little spotty band and ribbons on the image.

The sentiment is from a Woodware set.

And there's the old card with some nice dimension.
Hope you likee???

We decided yesterday to go and have a wander up Moel Famau which is a moutain near here. Well it's officially not a mountain (as the Welsh peeps will know, cos mountain is mynydd - how educational am I lol xx). It's listed as a marilyn (as opposed to a munro - seriously!!) and it's just over 18,000 feet high. And we decided to take Kyla and see how she got on. That kid and her little legs walked every step up to the top and was carried only for a short distance and whenever she saw a dog near by.

As we set off, the weather was cloudy but dry but about half way up it started to rain - that fine drizzly stuff that wets you straight through. When we got to the top for our picnic it was a bit disappointing because it was quite misty so we didn't have the usual stunning viww. But we all enjoyed it and I think for 3.5 she did really well, bless her.

Talking of disappointing, 2 words.

Joe Calzaghe.

I have been looking forward to seeing him trip the light fantastic for weeks and it just didn't happen. I don't know what I expected really cos he wasn't ever going to be John Travolta was he, and I've seen wet lettuces with more ooomph. NOT that I would ever say any of this to his face (which is still rather gorgeous I think !!!).

Maybe it's because I really truly cannot abide the blonde bit he is dancing with (too many affairs with other people's men for my liking - allegedly!!) and maybe it's because I assumed that being light on yer feet would sort of come in handy and he would be half decent.

But it wasn't at all good really was it?

Oh well, I'm sure we can rely on Tuffers to liven it all up next week, and Rickie Whittle is supposed to be awesome (well he was in that Mambo!!). So we'll just have to wait until then I guess. And maybe Joe will be better next time - we live in hope.

Right, I am off to pick up some head pins and get some stuff to make a chilli for dinner cos that is what his Lordship wants. Emma and Kyla have gone to Blackpool to see the lights so it's just the 2 of us. R has never had one of those huge sugar dummies so they are bringing him one back - he won't have a tooth left in his head if he eats it lol xxx

Have the most fabbiest of Sundays xxxx

SallyB said...

Hi Dawny...Love the have got a very distinctive style now...the pastels and black and white. Gorgeous!
Strictly...It has got it all! I was cringing at Joe and Kristina...OMG he has no personality at all!!! Bring back John Seargent! Rickys facial expression was hysterical... and Brunos comments. My best bit was watching the group dance...Did you spot Jo Wood dancing with Brendan...totally awful..and then they asked Craig who stood out and he said "Brendan...God help you, darling!" Loved the GMTV sports guy..Chris..What a natural!
