Raindrops on Roses …….

Picture 007c

Howdy lovely peeps and hope you are all OK xxx

It's a corny post title peeps I know but it’s the best  I could think of for today's theme over at the Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge which is

My Favourite Things

Well I don't know about you but I have so many things to choose from so this is a fab theme I think – and there is a fab prize as well :)

I was ever so slightly predictable in my choices – you won’t be at all surprised to hear – and this week I have used one of my hAnglar images which are such a joy to colour.

And this is what I did (it’s actually for someone but I cant say who :)

I coloured the sweet H&S girl with me Copics , which you can get from Tracy at Dies To Die For, AND didn't chuck the list away, shock horror, so here’s the colours I used …

Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20

Hair: E42, E50

Clothes etc: C00, C1, C3, C5, RV0000, RV000, RV10

And of course I just had to use some my fave Pink Petticoat papers, which are Gingham and Lots Of Dots (shades I used are Pretty, Silver & Smoke).

The sentiment is also PP – I’ve cut it from one of the fabulous sentiment ribbons.

And of course I couldn't resist a bloom or 3 lol :)

These are of course all from Wild Orchid Crafts. I sort of like this little arrangement. And I’ll let you into a secret …. I got a dirty mark on the card, right in the corner, so it did a nice job of covering up as well, heehee!!!!

The sweet little self adhesive rhinestones are also from WOC – what a pretty colour :)

There’s Lord Timmie’s cheeky scalloped border die peeping out as well. This really is fast becoming one of my fave ever dies. Any excuse and out it comes!!

I am covered in Glamour Dust – just for a change – because I’ll let you into another little secret here …. when I was getting the Marianne Design Creatables  (Butterfly Style 3 which is available from Dies To Die For ) out of the die, I ripped it – dohhh!!

So I glued it back together and covered it with bling and as Eric would say, you can’t see the join!!

So that’s me done for today chicksters.

All being well I’ll be back some time over the weekend with something  or other cardy,  so until then have a great Friday and see you soon.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Gorgeous, Dawny! Love all the layers and pretty embellies! I wouldn't have known that the butterfly was torn if you hadn't said - those Marianne D die cuts can be very challenging to extract from the metal can't they?

Yummy card Dawny, I love this colour combo. Your shading is just spot on my lovely ~♥~

Dawny have you tried rubbing your dies with a tumble dryer sheet,It definitely helps with the marianne creatables. you dont have to do it every time you cut.

Hope that helps! x
