If You Want To Get Ahead ……..

Picture 012c copy

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK :)

I’m a bit late cos my poor camera forgot to tell me that it needed a bit of life breathing into it – I know just how it feels!!.

But here we are now and it’s my first card of the week which is for the one and only Papertake Weekly and we have an

Anything Goes

theme this week with the optional extra is to use buttons but it is only optional and you don't have to use it if you don't want to :)

And of course, as it’s the first one of the month, we are sponsored by those lovely girlies Lisa and Laila over at Lili Of The Valley.

And check out what’s up for grabs peeps ….


Woohoooo :)

So this is my card.

I’m keeping the waffle to a minimum today cos I am late over here and poor old Richard is chomping at the bit and hurrying me along as we are nipping up to our local for din dins:)

The cute little Lili Of The Valley girlie is New Hat BUT she isn't a stamp. Well I do have her as a stamp, but this one was part of a freebie pack with this month’s Papercraft  Inspirations mag. If you haven’t got a copy, do nip and bag yourself one chicksies cos this freebie is fabulous!!!

I coloured her with Copics and polychromos pencils and for the life of me cannot find the list. I have definitely not chucked it out though so I’ll keep searching and update when I get me trotters on it.

And you’ll see not one  swirl made with the  Magnolia leaf and swirl die today but 2!!! I got mine from the ever so fabby Simon Says Stamp

This beautimous bow is made from 38mm Grosgrain Stripe ribbon, some Baker's Divine twine and a button from the old stash. The ribbon and twine are both from The Ribbon Girl

The paper is a mixture which I don't normally do – I usually stick to the one brand – but these looked so nice that it was a shame not to put them together. They are Crate Paper Neighborhood 12 x 12 Collection Kit and Wild Rose Studio Gorgeous Ginghams and both are availabe from Tracy at Dies To Die For.
