Morning lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today :)
It’s Thursday and that can only mean one thing – yes it’s time to check out the Lili Of The Valley Thursday challenge and this week our theme is
Aqua, White & Glitter
Well say no more cos this is right up my blingtastic street !!
As always we have a fab voucher up for grabs ….
… for one lucky girlie to spend in the shop (I wonder what she’ll choose!!)
.. this is what I did and it’s one of those times when I actually really like the end result.
I used Christmas Dance and she is from the first Christmas release this year – and she is soooo sweet.
I coloured her with these Copics -
E000, E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E41, E42, E50 (hair) , BG0000, BG01, RV00 (the rest)
and I also added some shading with polychromos pencils and then went a bit mad with the old Glamour Dust.
I love how this bow turned out – it looks so pretty.
It’s a mixture of 23mm white organza and vintage seam binding (I used aqua of course!!). And as it’s a Chrimbly card, I added 3 silver jingle bells which I’d tied together with some Divine Baker’s Twine (again I used aqua).
And all of these are from The Ribbon Girl :)
The flowers are all made from Spellbinders Rose Creations dies and of course I just had to add a bit of Tilda Lace and both dies are from Simon Says Stamp. The pretty aqua self adhesive rhinestones are from Wild Orchid Crafts but you can always colour plain ones with your pens if you don’t have any.
The sentiment is Pink Petticoat and printed onto Safmat.
Well that’s me done for today.
I’m off to try and get through a mountain of work then start the prep for my class at the weekend. So it’s all go today peeps. I hope that your day will be more relaxing!!!!
But before I go, remember my little mini rant re the travellers and I said that the council had agreed to a permanent site on some green belt land near here? Well apparently it isn't a done deal after all and the info wasn't released 2 days before the closing date for objections (my source was wrong and they are sacked lol!!) and there is a petition going around which has practically everybody’s signature on so maybe there’s hope ? I think the council have pretty much made up their minds to be honest.
And I won’t even start on the saga that happened at Hobbycrap yesterday. I’ll save that for another time – grrrrrr!!!!!!
All I’ll say is that if you are going to have a major refurb, you really ought to consider that your customers might still want to buy things (strange concept I know!!) so best not pack most things away where it can’t be gotten at!!!! Oh and if they could maybe get some peeps that work there to understand the difference between 12 x 12 and A4 sizes, it would be MARVELLOUS!!!
Or am I just being Miss Picky Knickers again :(
Have a fab day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
