Sweet Amelia & A Bit Of News xxx

Picture 003 copy

I just love this image – its one of my fave TGF images ever. She’s Amelia and she’s one of the new Buddies which Tracy has in stock at Dies To Die For – you can see her and her pal Oliver here :)

So I thought I’d use her for this week’s Anyone For Anya Challenge which this week is a sketch.

sketch #10a

So this is the sketch …..

Picture 002 copy … and this is me card.

I coloured her with Copics in the following colours -

B0000, B00, C00, C1, E00, E21, E31, E50, R11, YG0000, YG03

Picture 003bowThe papers are all Wild Rose Studio Polka Dots and you can get them from Tracy – here they are and check out the new Japan and Spring Fling paper stacks as well cos they are verrrry delish :)

The ribbon is from my stash and the tiny rose is of course from Wild Orchid Crafts

The DT cards are amazing – some crackers over there lovelies so if you get a sec, nip and have a mooch. We’ve also got a GDT call as well if you are interested.

I did say that there was a bit of news and it’s just to let you know that with effect from the end of June, I am stepping down from running the AFA blog. I am finding that I have less and less time and something has to give. We now really only get to see Kyla at weekends so I want to free up some time for her. But Yvonne is going to carry it on so it won’t be closing and I know it’s in very good hands :)

Now I just have to show you this as well.

DotComGiftShop sent me a lovely package of heart decorations and bits and bobs to have a look at and I just love them. If you haven’t already checked out this site, nip and have a look peeps. It’s full of yumminess and there’s lots of stuff us cardies and crafties can use and the prices are really good.

Anyhoos, the package included these fab goodies -

White Hanging Heart T-light Holder Alphabet Hearts Sticker Sheet Hearts  Stickers Hearts Gift Tape

and

Pink Felt Hanging Heart W Flower

… this gorgeous little pink felt hanging heart kit which I’m going to help Kyla to make for her bedroom. We are just about to re-decorate it as it’s still sort of toddler-esque. Now she is 4 now, she needs it to be a bit prettier and less baby-ish, so this is perfect to hang up in there.

I really don’t know where she gets the pink and girlie thing from because my girls were tomboys – both of them – and would not entertain pink, or dresses or ribbons etc. No, it was jeans, wellies, muck and ponies with both of them!!!! And I suppose I know where they got that from cos I might like pretty things now but I was the same as them when I was younger!!!

Although I am surprised that I can actually remember that far back lol xxx

So anyway I had better get on and get some stuff sorted. We are supposedly going to climb Moel Ffamau again today. It’s got to be good for another couple of pounds of lardage I reckon and seeing as I am now in single figures re the weight ie 9 stone (plus lots of pounds admittedly lol xxx), then I am running up that flamin’ mountain / hill / big rock / whatever!!! Yeah course you are Dawny – in yer dreams girl!!!.

Have the fabbiest day and enjoy the Bank Hol and hugs to all xxx
