Pink & Pretty – Just For A Change!!!!!

 Picture 007c copy

Ohh I know, I’ve slipped back into pink mode again……. the last few cards have been awash with it but I think that tomorrow will see something bright and zingy – woohoooo!!!.

But first, I hope that everyone is well and having a good week so far :)

Today’s the day for a new challenge over with the Papertake Weekly girlies and this week we want you to

Cut It Out

which simply means that it’s time to get out the nestles, border punches, die cuts, etc etc and put them to good use.

So of course, I did just that!!!

I used a couple of MS Border punches – the PATP eyelet lace punch and the flourish punch which I THINK it’s not that easy to get hold of  now as it may have been discontinued – but don't quote me on that!!! The PATP punch is available from Tracy at Dies To Die For but I’m not sure about t’other one :(

But I really like the shape is gives to the mat behind the image.

Speaking of which, this cutie was coloured with my beloved Copics – more about the in a sec – in these colours -

Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20

Hair: E42, E50

Clothes: C1, R85, RV0000, RV000, RV10, RV21, RV34, RV95

oh and there is a fair bit of bling sprinkled about as well, like ya do :)

The beautimous blooms are all from the very lovely Paul & Siri at Wild Orchid Crafts

The papers are all Nitwits.

And do you see those pretty pink gems? Well they started out in life as plain old boring clear ones, but a quick swipe of the Copics and they were transformed into pretty pink sparklers ( Cherie, I told you it would happen lol!!)

So that’s the old card done.

Well I had an eventful weekend – very busy but very enjoyable as I went down to Newbury to be ‘Copically’ certified – woohoooo!!

So, I can now say that I am a ……………………..


How cool is that peeps:)

And I met some wonderful ladies as well including  Wendy who ran the course with Karen (who is my Card Making & Papercraft teamie) and I sat next to the sweetness that is Cherie from the Creative Card Crew and most enjoyable it was too. Ladies it was an absolute pleasure to meet you all, and put faces to the names xxx

So I am planning to do some Copics workshops which will hopefully help you to get the best out of these awesome little pens – and I’m sure that there will be one or two laughs along the way as well (my classes always seem to end up like that lol!!)  so if this is something you are interested in doing, please ping me a quick e-mail  (dawnyp123@hotmail.co.uk) with your name and location :)

Okee dokee so that’s me done for today. Have a great day and see you tomoz with something nice for Chrimbly.

Hugs to all xxx
