Lovely Lilac & Lace :)


Morning peeps and hope everyone is well.

This week has just flown by – probably cos I have been so busy and I’m sooo looking forward to the weekend, which is apparently going to be glorious!! Mmm, well now they said that it's bound to have put the kiss of death on it.

But you never know!!!

Anyhoos it’s Friday so that means it's time to check out what the Just Magnolia girlies have been doing and this week our Jane has done a sketch for us to work with and here ….


.. it is.

I rotated it to fit the image…..

Picture 002 copy … and did a spot of paper piecing cos I liked the idea of her having gingham shorts :)

The rest of Miss Tilda was coloured with Copics and I used these colours -

BV0000, BV00, BV02, C1, E0000, E00, E21, E33, E35, E50, E53, R11, YG0000, YR00. You can get oodles of these bad boys from Tracy at Dies To Die For and she is also sponsoring our challenge this week, so do nip and check it all out if you get a sec xxx


These gorgeous blooms are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts and if you missed my last post, nip and have a quick look cos there’s 2 assorted packs up for grabs if you are a follower.


The papers are just fab I think and they are both Pink Petticoat colour collections. One is Gingham and the other is Little Check and there is a free stamp offer on until this Sunday. Check it out here peeps :)

The lace was just sitting at the bottom of  the heap that is my ribbon stash and I just added a few gems to bling it up a bit.

Picture 004 copy So that’s me card done peeps.

It’s very hazy here this morning which I am hoping will mean it will be nice later on. We are still doing the bike riding thing cos I am still trying to shift the blubber. I think I mentioned that the lucky diet this month is Weight Watchers and you get more points if you exercise,  hence all this activity here at the mo.

Well you didn't think it was for the good of me health did you chicksters?

No, it is just so I can stuff more grub down the mush lol xxx  BUT I have to say that I felt a bit cheated last week cos I had got quite a few points over in preparation for the big splurge I had planned for the weekend.

But no such luck cos little did piggy Phillips  know that you only have them for a limited time and if you don't use them then bingo, they are gone – never to be seen again. You can image my face when I found that little gem out. I very nearly cried!!! 

But all in all I’ve managed to get rid of 11lbs of lardage since I started (although it might only be 10 now cos I was a bit naughty yesterday).  But onwards and upwards as they say and on that note I am off to have a bit of brekkie before the detritus of the day hits me!!!!

Have a fab day, see you soon and hugs to all xxxx

Gorgeous Dawny - I'm having a bit of a lilac moment myself just now and these papers and flowers are just delish hun!! Sorry never saw you at Port Sunlight this time - i never went cos I had to rein myself in after being a VERY NAUGHTY girl spendswise at Aintree lol!! You may be cheered to know i've finally got started on the promarkers, ... so that's another money pit waiting to happen (actually it's not waiting .. it's already happening lol!! )
Take care chick
