… but I really do like this card :)
I think it’s the colours and the fact that it is really frothy and girlie and sweet.
Now the one I did yesterday took next to no time but this one however took a fair bit longer. But we got there and it’s my card for this week’s Just Magnolia challenge which this week is …..
… this bad boy:)
So this is my take on it.
This is one of the new Tildas that arrived a short while ago, It’s a Christmas image I guess but it works well for general stuff as well. So out came the Copics and I used these colours -
E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin) - E42, E50 (hair) - B0000, B00, RV0000, RV000, RV10 (clothes)
And these are available of course from Miss Tracy Dies To Die For :)
I found a bit of tulle lurking furtively at the bottom of a bag so I decided to use it to add a touch of ‘whatever the word is that I can’t think of right now!!!’
The sentiment was absolutely perfect for this card I thought and it’s from Pink Petticoat's Girly Curly Sentiments Collection
I don't know where I got the pink ric rac from – doh – but it always reminds me of the cardis my beloved Gran used to knit for us when we were kids.
Now you young uns’ don’t laugh, but that’s what Grans did in them days. If it didn’t move, they stuck ric rac and lace on it. They used to knit you stuff and then when you got too big for it, they unpicked it, rewound the wool and knit you something else!!!! Sometimes, you had a new cardi that was made from 2 of your old ones. Fantastic!!!
And the ric rac was re-used as well.
So that’s the card done.
Well I started my Chrimbly shopping yesterday and I got 4 prezzies already. This is somewhat unusual for me cos you know those peeps that have everything bought and wrapped by the end of September?
Well I’m not one of them!!!
I have been know to go out shopping on Christmas Eve before now (hangs head in shame!!).
I got Kyla a ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ book and I showed it to her yesterday (it’s for life and not just for Christmas) when I took some fruit round for her harvest festival basket (aww!!). I always wanted to get this for her because when Em was little it was one of her favourite stories and she all but knew it off by heart by the time she was 4, bless her.
I actually felt quite emotional reading it to Kyla - it was like rolling back the years (OMG I had a vision of Mick Hucknell then that’s made me feel quite sick cos I think he is revolting – apols if I’ve offended any Simply Red fans but you cannot seriously tell me he is attractive!!). It was only a quick read to be fair cos were were sharing a Danish pastry at the same time so a bit of concentrating was called for to avoid getting icing all over the place. So we are going to have a proper read later on after dinner.
Well have a wonderful weekend peeps and see you Monday if not before.
Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
