What …… No Copics?????


Yes it’s true – this is a Copics free zone today.

In fact, come to think of it,  there isn't a pen of any description in sight!!!

The reason is that I got meself some of the new Lili Of The Valley Die Cuts last week and they are just so beautiful peeps, they really are.  So I thought I’d use one today for my Papertake Weekly card.

These die cut sheets are already coloured, and there are 9 per sheet, so they are brilliant value as well –  if you get a sec, check it all out here

So our challenge this week over at PTW is a sketch - 

sketch #43

- this bad boy here, and this …..

12… is what I did with it.

Yes,  another easel card and STLL not good at doing the pic thing with them sadly :(

The die cut image I used was Afternoon Tea (oh yes please) and those gorge papers are Pink Petticoat, Stripes (silver) and Really Big Dots (quartz). these colours matched the image perfectly. I added a sprinkling of Glamour Dust to the image as well – not too much, just a bit of highlighting really. You can maybe see it better in the top pic :)


The pretty blooms are of course from the fabbydoodles Wild Orchid Crafts (yes, I’m still pinching myself lol xxx

The blingy pins are from the also fabbydoodles Dies To Die For.  I THINK Tracy is uploading the pics etc sometime this week so keep checking peeps. There is also lots of newbie stuff going on the website as well :)


The sentiment is from the Thinking Angel stamp set from Butterfly Kisses – I am sooo glad that they have their website up and running now.

So that’s me done for today chicksters. I’m off to SW19 courtesy of the TV shortly – no actual  trip for us this year sadly -  cos a certain Rafa is playing later and I think he is going to have a good year this year :)  So I have some strawbs in the fridge – no cream due to the ruddy diet which quite frankly is doing my head in now -  and I’m going to watch it and pretend I am there.  I could maybe stretch to a weak Pimms with diet lemonade as well later on and really live dangerously!!!!!.

Or maybe I should get out more!!!

Have a fab day peeps,  see you soon and huggiest of hugs xxxx
