3 Lili Lovelies :)

Hi peeps and hope that you are all OK today.

It’s time to catch up with Lili’s little fairies  over at the Lili Of The Valley Thursday challenge and this week our theme is

Red, Green & White.

So it’s rather festive over there  today.  We have a fab voucher up for grabs as well ….


.. and I’m sure that our winner will be spoilt for choice in what to spend it on as there are soooo many lovely things in the shop.

So this is what I did. I did another shaped card made using Spellbinders Grand Nesties

The image is All In A Row and it’s one of the new releases – don’t you just love ‘em :) I coloured it with Copics and these are the colours I used …

E000, E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E41, E42, E50 (hair), G99, R17, R27, R59, Y28, YG0000, YG01, YG03 (the rest).

I used the frilly bits of the Magnolia Dream Tag  to surround the image and them stuck another piece of card over the back so you can’t see the joins!! The holly ‘paper’ was made using an old holly punch  which I’ve had for years and a small hole punch.

The Nesties, Copics and tag die are all available from Simon Says Stamp and the sentiment is Pink Petticoat.

I made a nice big bow with some  38mm Grosgrain Stripe ribbon from the fabulous Ribbon Girl and the button is actually a piece of card punched with a 3/4” circle hole punch and a small hole punch.

So that’s the old card done.

I am suffering a bit today because we went out on our bikes last night, me for the first  time in ages, so I am a tad tired. I got me a new bike so I was testing it out …

Giant Roam 2 x Road Bike 2011 - Hybrid City bikes

… and this is the bad boy here and I LOVE it :) It has 27 gears apparently although I haven’t a clue what to do with them, There are only 2 in my world, ie easy and hard, haaahaaaa!!!.

We both ‘treated’ ourselves to some of those padded shorts that you wear under your trackie or whatever you go riding in and it was hysterical. I looked like Serena Williams (love her but she does have one hell of an ass on her, bless) and they made you walk in quite an unattractive way. 

Why I felt the need to add any more butt inches on top of what is already there I cannot imagine and I’m not so sure they are even THAT comfy. Apparently ( according to his Lordship), we are our again later although whether I wear the shorts remains to be seen!!!

My enthusiasm today is underwhelming!!! Best get the Bercooca back out (still no sign of any facial hair or log rolling tendencies peeps!!)

So on that note I’ll go and do some work and I’ll see you tomoz with the last card of the week.

Enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
