A Little Lilac :)

im copy

Morning lovely peeps and hope you are all OK.

It’s Friday – woohoo, the best day of the week – and as always, it’s time to head over to see what' the Just Magnolia girls are up to.

This week, our lovely Donalda has done us a fabulous sketch ….


… and here it is.

So this is my interpretation and don't forget to check out what the other girlies have done, all gorgeous of course,  if you get a sec.

I coloured Miss Tilda with Copics in these colours -

Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20

Hair: E42, E50

Clothes: BV0000,  BV00, BV02, BV13, RV0000, RV10

and I added a fair old bit of sparkle courtesy of a good dollop of Glamour Dust :)

Well, it’s nearly Christmas lol!!!!


The papers I used are Nitwits and the old PATP eyelet lace punch was overworked yet again, poor thing!!!  Tracy at Dies To Die For has these so if you haven’t got one and want one, she is the very chap to sort you out  :)

The gorgeous blooms were all from the gorgeous Siri and Paul at Wild Orchid Crafts ….


… as were the self adhesive pearls, pins, ribbon and lace.

I just did a line of running stitches along the top of the lace and then gathered it together to form a circle to make the  ‘flower’.

Easy peasy and ooooh so pretty I think.

So that’s the card done and I have a bit of an update for you.

I had a few peeps asking me where I got the gorge little pearl stars that I used on my card yesterday …..


… these are they.

Well the good news is that they are now available from Wild Orchid Crafts and you can get them right here peeps. they are awesome value as well at only £1.20 for 50 of the little blighters.

So on that starry note, I am off to the merry world of finance again (yaawwwwwwwwwwwn!!!) and then it’s time to collect my little treasure from school for her overnight stay with us. We haven’t decided what to do yet but she keeps asking if we can have another girlie night where we do our nails and have a ‘face pack’ etc etc. Well we do this when Granddad is working late and there is just the two of us, but I don’t think she has grasped the concept really cos she asked me last week if we could have a girlie night with Granddad this week.

Poor Richard, I can see him being covered in nail varnish and cream before the day is done.

Have a great day and hugs to all and if you haven’t checked out my blog candy from yesterday,  you can see it all here xxx
