Cheeky But Clean & Fresh:)

I know I don’t usually appear here  on a Sunday but  I have had a real job getting this to post  so sorry lovely peeps,  please pretend that it’s still Friday :)o  and Mr Blogger and Mr Live Writer, can you please sort out your probs cos it is a real nightmare for us – grrrrr!!!!!

Over at the Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge this week we have a rather fab sketch for you which was done by our Jane and ….

… here it is :)

This week we are sponsored by 7 Kids College Fund who are offering a fabulous $20 voucher for their store!

So what did I do with the sketch?

Here you go - and not a swirl in sight today,  but that probably won't last!!!

I love love LOVE these colours – even though it’s all quite busy it still looks clean which I do like.

I used cheeky Lace Jeans Tilda and coloured her with these Copics -

E000, E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E33, E42, E50 (hair), B0000, B000, B00, B12, YG0000, YG01. YG03(clothes etc) and I added a dash of polychromos pencil magic here and there as well.

The papers are all from  First Edition Up Up  & Away 6 x 6 paper pack (gorgeous) and the little tag is also from the pack cos there are all sorts of bits and bobs and not just papers in there.

Copics, Tilda and papers are all from Simon Says Stamp

And there is a cheeky bit of one of the  Die-namics Dizzy Doily Duo peeping out and these are available from Dies To Die For

It was still  out so I used the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies again but I used them in a different way to the earlier card and just stencilled then and then layered them up and added some bling.

The centre of the middle flower was made up of single gems. I nicked the idea from our very clever Andrea at Papertake Weekly – I think it looks fab :)

Speaking of Andrea, this gorgeous bow was made from Berisfords 16mm Pencil Stripe ribbon – I used  Meadow Green – and it’s from The Ribbon Girl. The lace is 45mm white Guipure lace and is available from Wild Orchid Crafts

So that’s the card done and I’m off now to finish some bits and bobs, then we are getting ready for a house full of visitors later.

Richard’s mum is moving to Cornwall tomorrow so it’s going to be a bit of a sad day of us and especially for Richard. His brothers and sister all moved away as young adults and he is the only one that stayed up north so it’s going to be a wrench and I feel really sorry for him as he goes to see her at least twice a week and has taken Kyla every Sunday morning since she’s been about 6 months old. We’re sorting out Skype and flights there aren't too bad so he can nip down as often as he can but I’m sure it won’t be the same for him and I know he has been dreading it.

But we will have a nice afternoon and I hope the weather picks up a bit cos it’s chucking it down at the mo (yesterday was glorious and we spent most of it in the garden).

Enjoy your Sunday and I’ll see you in the week.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
