Kiss Of Death :(

Picture 004 copy

Oh the irony wasn't lost on me today peeps.

You see, when I set the PTW challenges, I do them a few weeks / months in advance so that the DT girlies aren't under too much pressure etc. Well when I did the Papertake Weekly challenge for this week, it WAS quite nice and sunny. So I thought it’d be safe to have a summery sort of theme.

Well how wrong could I be!!!

The challenge is Fun Fun Fun and it’s all about enjoying yourself in the summer sun. See where I'm going here? Yes, today of all days it is persisting down and as grey as a single man’s y-fronts (ooh that’s a bit sexist, sorry!!!)

a But anyway, it might be nice where you are and I hope it is to be fair.

So this is what I did. The image I used is one of the new Lili Of The Valley summer releases which are now available and there is a special offer on right now cos if you buy all 12 then you save £5. You can see them all right here – they are just adorable, every single one of them.

I did me Copics thing with these colours -

B0000, B00, C00, C1, C3, E00, E21, E33, E50, R11, YG0000, YG00, YG03

Picture 005 copy The papers lovely peeps were in the bottom of my scrap box and I cannot find who they are by or anything else about them to be honest – I am sorry. But if I do, I’ll edit the post and put the details on here. I THINK I might have used them before so I’ll have to go through the posts and have a see if I can find anything there.

I was thinking that maybe this is a bit plain after all me flowers and embellies of late, but it’s a boy card so too much jazzing up wouldn’t have been suitable really.  So it’s very like my old ‘plain Jane’ style - not sure which I prefer to be honest!!!

We got up the mountain on Sunday – God knows how, cos R decided we should do the hard route for a change, the crazy fool. Jeez, I thought I was a gonner at one point and never again am I going up that way cos  still feel like I have somebody else's legs. So yesterday was spend hobbling around the house until we all went out for dinner. Then I hobbled into the pub like an old crock, which to be fair I nearly am :(

And on that depressing note I am off to  feed another chick we have to look after – a baby Buzzard and it’s so cute – and then do some work.

Have a fab day and see you soon lovely peeps. Huggiest of hugs xxxx
