Any Better Peeps?


I think this is maybe a little better but it still isn't 100% as sharp as it might be. But then again, neither am I so who am I to point the finger!!!

Well it is Friday and I have got off to a flying start today. I’ve done a shed load of housework (booo, hisssss), including cleaning my office (boooo hisssss - how sad am I!!) and I haven’t even had me brekkie yet :)

So as it is Friday, it’s time for another challenge with the fabulous Just Magnolia girlies and this week our Bev has done a sketch for us to follow and …..

… I really loved it – it’s fab isn't it.

Picture 009 copyAnd this is what I did.

I gave Tilda and her Peony and bit of  a going over with the Copics, and don’t faint cos I remembered not to chuck out the list during the tidy up operation.

So I used -

E0000, E00, E21, E31, E35, E42, E50, R0000, R00, R11, R20, R32, R85

bloom The fabulous flowers and little stranded pearly beads  are of course from the always wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts. This pic does not do that pink cherry blossom flower justice at all cos IRL it is the most gorgeous shade of pink, it really is.

The papers are all Pink Petticoat – Lots Of Dots, Gingham  and Spring Wishes and I used pretty pink and mocha shades.

And a few little The Hobby House pearls and a scrap of pink grosgrain ribbon finished it all off.

Well what a finish to the tennis-athon yesterday, and I was secretly glad that John Isner won it because he is such a sweetie. I so wish I was there today with my lovely bloggy pal Kath and I will be looking out for her on the telly. Instead I will have to make do with finishing off my week’s work, organising the next lot of classes at the craft centre around the corner (well, sort of!!), doing the prep for a class I have next week, and maybe squeezing in making a card or two whilst I am at it!!!! Then his Lordship has informed me that we are going out on our bikes later as we have been slacking a bit this week (cos of the tennis!!).

Then tomorrow, our Kyla has her first show at ballet – awww I feel a bit of a weep coming on. We saw the rehearsals last week and that was bad enough. But I know I am not the only embarrassing Grandma out there so there’s bound to be a couple of us at it, and my Aunty Jean is good for a sniffle or two as well so I will be in good company!!!

Enjoy this beautiful day lovely peeps and see you tomorrow cos I’ll be back with a GD card  :)

Hi. I have been following your blog for quite some time now and I just love your cards. I had to comment on this one though as the colour combi is so unusual and works so well. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the good work. You put a smile on my face with your lovely cards and funny comments!
