Not Like Me lol xx

Hi peeps and happy Friday xxx

The weekend is nearly here so it can only be good :)
And of course, it's time for another wonderful challenge over at Just Magnolia. This week it is the turn of the very lovely Jay Jay to provide us with a sketch to work with and it's this one ......

.... here!!
And what a great sketch, so hugest of thanks to Jay Jay xx
If you get a sec, nip over and check out the challenge - there's some awesome cardage from the very talented DT girlies as always :)

Their work just blows me away.

Anyway, this is what I did with the sketch.

Now the title of the post is 'not like me' and you've probably gathered that I am talking about the colours. For some reason, I don't tend to use creams and browns, but I thought I'd try something different. Love that tangerine, I really do :)

Some things never change though cos I've still used the PMs.

The paper is truly beautiful and it was a prezzie from Tracy at Dies To Die For but I forgot to ask her which one it was. It's the most subtle of cream with a white pattern which my fabulous photography hasn't picked up too well, but it is just gorgeous.

The good old MSBP is there and that zingy fabby spotty grosgrain ribbon is from Poppicrafts. Check out the gorgeous limited edition ribbon buckets - they are soooo sweet!!

The blooms are a mixture of Hero Arts (from Simon Says Stamp) and Prima (from Dies To Die For) and I just added a teeny gold brad to keep them all together.

I wish I could do flowers like the rest of the DT girls!!!

And here's the funny old angle shot which I do seem to like!!!
And that's the old card done peeps xxx

I'm on a bit of a flyer today (again) cos I have shed loads to do but not shed loads of hours in which to do it!! Wouldn't it be great if we could literally buy time!! I tell you, I would be flippin bankrupt if you could lol xx

But the more I get done today, the more crafty time I can have over the weekend.


So have a great day and see you soon and huggiest of hugs to all xxxx
