Hi lovely peeps and hope you are all ok :)

It’s a miserable Thursday here in not so sunny Chester but hopefully the lovely cards on show over at the Lili Of The Valley Thursday challenge will make us all smile!!

And something else that will make one lucky girlie definitely smile is this …


… so if you get a sec, nip over and have a butchers :)

Out theme this week is


so all you have to do is to include them in your project and it’s as simple as that!!

This is what I did – I went for just a single rose.

I used Milly Me & My Dog which you can see here and I coloured them with these Copics -

E000, E00, E21 (skin), E33, E42, E50 (hair), B0000, B000, B00, B12,  E33, E35, E50, YG0000, YG01, YG03,(clothes etc).

I also used a fair old bit of polychromos to give it a bit of zing. It’s a fairly plain and simple card re the layout and embellies so I wanted to the colours to really stand out and draw the eye in.

The bow is made from 38mm organza spotty ribbon  which is from The Ribbon Girl and I added a  20mm open rose and some long stem stamens which you can get from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sparkly gems are also WOC.

The papers I used are both from the new FQB From The Sea collection over at Nitwits and there’s a cheeky bit of lace made with the good old   Tilda Lace Die which you can get from Simon Says Stamp

… sunny and bright is an understatement, so see you and your Foster Grants back here tomoz.

We are off to TGI Fridays tonight for a quick bit of din dins and maybe a cocktail or two??? It’s Kyla’s favourite eaterie at the mo, mainly I suspect because they do a mean wriggly worm ice cream pud (full of E numbers and sugar which is probably why she likes it!!!) and they also make her a little non alcoholic cocktail with the umbrellas and all the trimmings which is very Del Boy,  but she loves it!!!! And the barman always winks at her which she pretends not to like but secretly does I think!!

Enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
