Lacy Tilda

Morning peeps and what a bee-you-tiful morning it is as well. Doesn’t it make you feel better when the sun is out :)

And not only that, the weekend is nearly here as well – woohooooo!!!

So today over at the Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge  it’s our Monthly Special the theme is Anything Goes and there is an  optional extra to add some lace.

We are sponsored by the fabbytastic peeps that are

and there is a $25 voucher up for grabs :)

Here’s the old card.

I coloured this Tilda With Hawaii Flower with me Copics – both are available from Simon Says Stamp and check out those papers!! They are from the new Bumbleberry Cottage collection from Nitwits. I cannot tell you how much prettier IRL that blue is – it’s just gorgeous :)

The beautimous lace and spotty organza ribbon are both from The Ribbon Girl – fabulous.

And see those little self adhesive pearls? Well they are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts BUT these are actually rejected stock that you can pick up for 43p a sheet instead of the usual £1.22 – check it out here peeps xxx . There are only a couple of pearls not quite right on each sheet and I mean literally one or two  - the rest are perfect, so it’s bargainous :) 

Plus you can colour them with you pens as I did here so you will always have pearls that match your card.

These blooms are all from Wild Orchid Crafts as well and I used sweetheart blossomship rosebuds, tea rosebuds and 4mm and 5mm closed rosebuds

And there you have it peeps.

Did you see BGT last night?

Ohhh I so wanted Out Of The Blue to get through although in a weird sort of way I did enjoy the old boy dancing in a ‘drunk dad at a wedding’ sort of way. Don’t know if it’s me but the acts this year haven't been THAT good apart from  one or two.  I didn't really enjoy Edward although I did LOVE his campness :)  Jai was just awesome and did you see Simons Cowell’s eyes light up when he heard him? Dollar signs flashed before him I think.  Poor Simon, his Botox doc must be a bit worried cos it has sort of gone a bit wrong hasn’t it this time (we thought Cheryl might have landed him one at first lol!!). And that’s the thing with Botox – you never know do you?  Personally I think you can always tell cos you can go a bit stretched looking – like the skin on a drum. Both my girls wanted to have it done and I talked them out of it. But it’s horses for courses and if it floats your boat then why not!!! Just not on my kids if I can help it lol!!!.

Enjoy the rest of your day whatever you are doing and fingers crossed that this weather continues into the weekend. If it does, I think the old BBQ may well have to come out. It’s looking way too comfy in the garage, and ditto the outdoor furniture so I might just have to ruin poor Richards’s day later and get him to get them out and give them all a scrub (he isn't really henpecked, honest!!)

See you next week and huggiest of sunny hugs to all xxx
