Autumn hAnglar -AKA I Just Couldn’t Wait To Use This Little Sweetie


Happy Sunday peeps and hope you are all OK xxx

Oh I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO loving these H&S images and I am ever so glad that they are becoming slightly more  accessible now. My new set arrived last week and I have been dying for an excuse to get the old inkpad and Copics out and as I  had a spare couple of hours today, I did just that.

So I decided to do a couple or three challenges and I decided to combine the sketch over at the Sketch Saturday Challenge with the  Autumn Colours challenge over with the Charisma Cardz girlies. And I am also going to stick my neck out here and enter it for the Cute Card Thursday challenge as well where they want you to ‘make your own’ – more of that on a sec!!!

So here’s the sketch …

…. and  ….

… here’s the card.

I coloured this poppet with these Copics -

E0000, E00, E21, E33, E35, E42, E51, R11, E20, Y28, YR16, YR23, YR38, YR68 and of course these are all available from the sweetness that is Tracy over at Dies To Die For.

The Lots Of Dots & Gingham papers are both Pink Petticoat and so is the sentiment which I snipped off one of the sentiment ribbons. The blooms are of course  Wild Orchid Crafts  and I think I am getting a bit of a poppies addiction here cos I cannot stop using them!!!!!! I didn't have any roses in the colour that I wanted so  I made my own orange rose  using an lovely bright Copics pen and a plain white rose.

Now some might say this is using initiative and others  might say it is downright cheating!!! So CCT girls,  I have played fast and loose here so if this is a cheaty McCheat too far for you lovely peeps, I wont be offended if it aint included lol xxx

So that’s me done. I’ve faffed about so much with it that I haven’t left much time for ‘chatting’ on here and as Sir Dickie of  Mintsville  is on his way back with a takeaway to accompany Strictly and X Factor I best get off and at least lay the table so it looks like I’ve made some contribution to our fabulous Sunday dinner!!! 

But before I go,  did you see about Ann Widdies salsa peeps? I have seen it all now although I loved the fact that she buttoned UP Anton’s shirt. Poor Anton, bless him. Do you think they are punishing for his gaffe last year?

Right, I’ll see you soon if not sooner and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Sunday  hugs to all xxx
