Don’t Faint ……




… but I’ve done a couple of challenges. I don't seem to do many these days cos I am up to me bits in all sorts of stuff, but I saw the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl by the lovely Gayle and I had to have a go cos it’s a fab sketch….

CH33Flowers_thumb1[1]….. dontcha think :)

So I flipped it on it's side…..


… and this is what I did with it. I’ve also entered this into the Cute Card Thursday challenge as well which this week is Mono Mania, so I went for a spot of lilac, like you do.,

It’s been ages since I used a Sugar Nellie image – not sure why cos they are just so lovely,  and I used to use them all the time. And this is one of my all time fave SN images – aww she is so sweet.

I coloured her with my Copics and have to say that i am loving these babies more and more every time I use them. You can get the most fab range of them (plus sets as well) from Tracy at Dies To Die For as well as loads of other yummy goodies as well.

 Picture 007 The papers are all Pink Petticoat gorgeousness and the flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts beauties.

The ribbon was in the bottom of the ribbon heap. How awful cos it’s so pretty.

And that’s the old card done.

Today we are all doing the Famous Five bit and going on a bike ride. Yes, even Emma has been persuaded, even though she will hate it. Richard and I have cycled so many miles  this week that I won’t tell you what it has done to me (how does Chris Hoy manage I wonder!!!) , but all that fresh air is wonderful. We are so lucky that we have a brilliant cycle track just over the road which goes from Chester to Holyhead – we haven't done that yet cos that is wayyyyy to far for this old piggy.

So have a great day and enjoy the lovely weather and see you tomorrow for a bit of AFA.

Sunniest of hugs to all xxx
