2 Little Dickie Birds & Lotsa Pics :)

Ok, they are not so little but I couldn't think of anything catchier than that for my title!!! When I first saw these images I fell in love with them cos they are quirky and a bit different.

A bit like me I suppose lol xxx

I have to say that I have something else in common with them as well. I'd like to say that it's the long legs. But sadly, that little fantasy exists purely in my head cos the reality is that they are 3 x 4 legs.

But we are both pink lol xxx

So over at Papertake Weekly it's time for another sketch -

- it's this one here.

And as we are being sponsored again by the lovely Kathe from TAC, all the images we've used this week have come from her, and they are gorgeous.

I really liked 2 of the fabulous flamingo images and I could not decide which one to use. So I did 2 cards. I kept to the same papers and colours cos I quite like seeing how different you can make them look using the same stuff.

This is the first one.

I added a cheeky bit of decoupage on her skirt to make it look like she was really doing the hula - or doing lots of hip action as they say on Strictly !!! And there's a bit of Stickles action going on as well!!!

The blooms are a mix of ones I won from Simon Says Stamp and Papermania and there's a scrap of me fave ribbon there as well.

It's a bit like a hobo that bow, cos it goes from card to card to card lol xxxx

The gingham paper is Mad About Cards and the pale pistachio is one I made up in Paint. The sentiment is TAC and the punch is SU which I got from my fab teamie Mandy.

Pardon us for looking up yer skirt chick, but it' a better way to see the dimension.

So that is my first card.

All together now - she wore an itsy witsy teeny weeny lime green polka dot bikini :)xx Sorry about that peeps cos I just realised that I've probably reminded you all of the gurning weirdo that is Timmy Mallet.

So anyway, this is the second card.

The blooms are from the very wonderful Poppicrafts and the ribbon was from the US of A and sent over lovingly by one of my fab friends who shall remin nameless, but she knows who she is xxxx

I made the green spotty paper by overprinting a sheet of the pale pistachio card I made with some black spotty paper from Pink Petticoat's Blooming Doodles collection (love this one).

And just when you thought you'd seen the last of Martha Stewart's finest on here, one pops up again. You didn't think I'd gone off them did you!!

And that's the last card.

Which is your fave? I have to be honest and say that I cannot pick cos I quite like them the same really.

And that's me done for today. Nip over if you get a sec and see what the PTW girlies have done with the sketch and the images - fabulous team cardage I think.

Have a great day and I hope that the weather is nicer where you are than here. Sadly though I fear it isn't (unless of course you are reading this from somewhere warm and exotic).

See ya soon xxxx

Oh how ADORABLE!!! Love those sassy pink flamingos!!! And the pink, green, and black combo is just gorgeous. Ok, searched PP high and low for "bloomin doodles" and just couldn't find it. Might need some help since I'm old, brainless, and incapable of helping myself. LOL! hugs!

Vicky said...

Two fabulous cards Dawn! I always find it maazing that by using almost identical products you can produce such very different looking cards! These flamingo's are so cute. I think I prefer the bikini one, only because I'm still in holiday mode after my recent jollies!
Hugs, Vicky ~x~
