Pink & Pastel Blue – So Back To Normal Then!!!!!

Picture 009c copy

Morning lovely peeps and hope that you are all OK xxx

We seem to have slipped back into pink mode here.

Not that it’s a bad thing of course.

So on a very cold and frosty Thursday morning, it's time head over and check out the Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge and this week we have a very gorge sketch which was done by our own very gorgeous Dena


And here it is.

And there’s £10 to spend in the shop up for grabs as well – woohoooooooo!!.

How nice would that be for Christmas :)

So here’s my card.

I did wonder if it wasn't a tad on the plain side – no flowers and hardly any embellies. But I guess that you don't always have to cover  you card and it's nice to let the image and papers do the work sometimes I think.

The oh so sweet  LOTV image was coloured of course with me Copics and I remembered to write them down today so  I used…

Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20

Hair: E42, E50

Clothes: BG0000, BG01, RV0000, RV000, RV10

And of course there is the customary Glamour Dust here and there!!!

The papers are of course Pink Petticoat and I used Gingham in Pretty Pink (just for a change I know but it’s sooooo pretty!!) and the spotty paper from the Wild Blossom Collection in Ocean.

Tis one of my fave collections :)

The little trips are made from a Tilda Lace die which you can get from Dies To Die For, with a little strip of dotty paper over the top and finished with some bling.

Picture 008c

The sentiment is from the LOTV Dreamy Days Circular Sentiments stamp set and of course I had to put a bit more bling around it!!!

So that’s me card for today.

My wrist is getting better by the day and it’s almost back to normal now, which is a blessing as I haven’t really done my Christmas cards yet – oh dear!!!! So I’d better think about making a start or it will be a trip to M&S for me which of course, I really don’t want to do.

Don’t forget the live Corrie tonight. 

Have you been watching peeps? OMG!!! Just my opinion of course, but this has been the best telly in ages. And the fact that there doesn't seem to have been any spoilers out there has made it even better as I really don’t know who is off to the great cobbles in the sky, although it isn't looking good for Molly & Ashley.  And there is of course the weirdie Charlotte that serial killer Stape has hit with a hammer (he seems such a nice boy as well!!!!!)

So who is the 4th?

Well I think all will be revealed tonight -  it’s not to be missed.

So have a fab day and see you tomorra.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

&$)*^$” Acetate!!!!!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Picture 007 copy

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK. I have had a MARE trying to take a decent pic of this card today.

Not entirely because of the light, although it didn't help, but it was more to do with that old card maker’s nemesis, acetate!!!

Oh yes, why do we use it????

This seemed like a good idea at the time and IRL it’s actually quite nice but it looks pants on here.

Anyway  it’s me card for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge which is

Red & Green Must Not be Seen

Picture 004c copy

So this is it!!

Now I do know that the trees are green but I couldn’t really do them any other colour :(

Everything was coloured with me Copics and there’s lots and lots of sparkle on there which sadly you cannot see through  all the glare.  I must point out that IRL the house is not subsiding under the snow -  I just knocked it slightly whilst faffing about with the camera – doh!!!!

The images are CC Designs Sugar Plums Snowy Scene which is available from Tracy at Dies To Die For and is on offer at the mo & Winter Sweet Pea & Tiger which is a digi from All That Scraps.

Verry cute I thought!!

Picture 002c copy                        

The sentiment ribbon is of course from Pink Petticoat and the die cut snowflake is one I bought from a shop so I don’t know what it is soz peeps :(

Not very good today am I lol!!!

Picture 003c copy11

So there’s me card done.

I’m off on a flyer again but I’ll see you soon if not sooner and until then, take care and have a great day and hugs to all xxx

Catching Up + My Giveaway Winners :)

Picture 004c copy1

Morning peeps and I hope that you are all OK xxx

We’ve had a rather eventful few days with internet probs, my tenosynovitis making an unwelcome  come back (grrr!!!) and various other minor stuff. But hopefully we are all OK now.

I am taking things very easy re my wrist so I’m keeping the wordage on here down to a minimum for a few days as typing really does make it worse.

So before we catch up with last week's missing in action cards, the winners of my little giveaway last Monday are ……

Doc1-1 Doc 2-1 Doc3-2

…. 24 is Suzi Q, 4 is The Cook and 16 is Pauline C

Well done to you girlies and if you could ping me a quick e-mail with your snail mail addies, I’ll get your stuff out to you sooner than soon.

Hugest of thanks you to everyone who left me a comment xxx

OK so here’s my cards from Thursday and Friday.

Firstly our theme over at the Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge is

A Few Of My Favourite Things

Well, this changes like the wind with me, and at the mo I am into the black and white and red thing. So rather than doing just a card, I thought  I’d do something a bit different. It is still a card but it also doubles up as a little calendar.  If you made up 12 images and bound them at the top, you could make this into a flip over type of calendar if that makes sense.

Picture 006c copy

I used the oh so  fab  cute squares cute squares again so no colouring involved and once again it’s very quick and easy.

Picture 011c

The papers are Pink PetticoatGingham, which I LOVE (you probably guessed that!!) and I used my fave PATP eyelet lace punch as well which you can get from Tracy over at Dies To Die For.

The gorgeous blooms are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

So that was Thursday.

Now onto Friday and we’re heading over to join the Just Magnolia girlies and as it’s our special monthly challenge, it’s an Anything Goes theme with the option of adding some sparkle.

Picture 002c copy

As my wrist was starting to hurt, I kept the colouring down to a minimum on this. I also have lost the lost of colours I used – doh – but there weren't many and it’s the usual basics plus some RVs and Cs peeps.

Picture 003c

The pretty papers are of course Pink Petticoat  and once again I used the PATP eyelet lace punch

I added some bling round the outside edge of the image and in the corners. The sentiment is cut from a Pink Petticoat sentiment ribbon and I just made it into a little tag :)

So that’s my catch up complete.

I’ll be back tomoz with a bit of Papertake-erie, so I’ll see you then. Have a good day and hope you are all keeping warm in this freezing weather. More snow is on it’s way I gather – booo hissss!!!!

Hugs to all xxx
