Wasss Goin’ On Here????????

Morning chicksies (and you are not seeing things – I really did use non-pastel/pale/neutral colours).

But first, HAPPY FRIDAY and hope all is well with you on  yet another lovely Spring day :)

Today over at the  Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge which is being hosted today by the sweetness that is our Pops and she has set a great challenge cos it’s time for a game of  BINGO – woohoo!!

So you just need to choose any 3 of these in a line – straight up and down or diagonally – and use them on your card.

And we have not one but 2 fab prizes today :)

A choice of ribbon kits from The Ribbon Girl

and a $20 voucher to spend in the 7 Kids College Fund  store.

Well the choice of colours today might be a shock but not the 3 things I picked ie gems, flowers and ribbon & lace!!

And this is the old card.

I coloured the little Attitude hAnglar girl with these Copics -

E00, E21, R11 (skin), E21, E40, E41 (hair) E08, E51, G99, R59 W00, W3, W5, YG03, YG63 (clothes etc)

Papermania Hampstead 12

I saw these papers on offer in Hobbycraft a while ago and got them for reasons I don’t really know cos they sure as hell aint my normal thing re the colours and patterns etc.

But the more I looked at them, the more I liked them. I’m not sure if this will mean that I will use them loads, but perhaps my style is changing.

Who knows!!

I did the rolled up flower thing here and if I did this again I would colour the back of the paper as well.

I cannot do them like Caz unfortunately cos hers are amazing – I have rolled up flower envy!!!

See those yummy pearls (OK I cheated cos these were the gems, slappity slap, naughty piggy!!)  well they are what you get if you cross these ….

Copic Ciao Marker Pen - E08 - Brown

I LOVE that rich shade :)

See what I mean about the backs of the flowers?

I really think they would look nicer coloured in so maybe next time I’ll do that.

One last pic and that’s me done for today and probably until Monday, cos I am off to the NEC bright and early in the morning – cannot wait, I really can’t.

So have a great weekend and I’ll see you then.

Sunny hugs to all xxx

Fab card, Dawny - sometimes a change is as good as a rest, eh!?! Have been desperate to get this H&S stamp and have been virtually stalking ebay but now all they're selling is the easter kit boo!!! As for rolled flower envy - the trick is the MFT die!! I've got it (from diestodiefor) and love it!!! And yep, only ever use double sided papers with it. Hugs, Marie xxx
