Getting Sentimental

Picture 008c copy

Morning peeps and hope that you are all OK xxx

There’s good news and bad news.

The bad news is that it’s the start of the week (grrr, I HATE Mondays!!!) but the good news it’s time for another Wild Orchid Challenge – woohoooo - and this week our theme is

Let’s Get Sentimental

There’s more good news as well cos check out the fab prize …..

Awesome prize or what!!!!

So this is what I did……

The image is ‘Time For A Cuppa’, one of the gorgeous Lili Of The Valley Tea & Chat images and I coloured her with theses Copics -

Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20

Hair: E50

Clothes etc: B0000, B00, B02, B12, C00, C1, E0000, RV0000, RV000, RV10

The papers are all Nitwits (ohh that sounds awful doesn't it – they probably say the same about me lol!!)

The beautiful blooms are all of course from the very wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts, and I used 20mm open roses, 10mm open roses, 6mm closed rosebuds, 5mm closed rosebuds,  and white  and blue gypsophilia

The pretty little pink self adhesive rhinestones are also  from Wild Orchid Crafts

The sentiment is a Dreamy Days Circular Sentiment from Lili Of The Valley.

And it’s back again, yes Lord Tim’s fab and funky scalloped die has put in another appearance :)

I can’t help it, it was sitting there on my desk (cos I was too bone idle to put it away), and I thought ‘ohhh why not’!!

So that’s me card done for today chicksies.

Did you see Dancing On Ice last night peeps?  I thought the Eastender boy was awesome and so was Chloe Madeley although how she must have felt  having her folks in the audience whooping it up I can only imagine – poor kid!!!  And you’d think with all their dosh that they’d have got something a bit better than the letter things they were holding up (I could have made them for them – they only had to ask lol!!!). I didn't think I was going to like Robert van-illa Ice Ice Baby either but I actually did warm to him.

And is it me or is Jason Gardner over-stepping it just a bit?

He’s there to give a ‘critique’ of course, but I think he gets a bit personal at times. Wasn't keen on the nappy ref to Henry from Neighbours – probably cos I was eating at the time (puke, bluhhhh).  And he and Karen Barber do NOT get on – that’s as plain as the nez sur ma visage, that’s for sure!!!! 

Nice teeth though :)

Anyway I’m waffling again so I’ll be offski. I’ll be back tomorrow with something ‘Papertake-ie’ lol!!! Have a great day and see you then.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
