Morning peeps and we are nearly at the end of another week.
Talk about flying time lol!!
It’s a bit of a chilly, damp and grey day here in Chester today so our theme this week over at the Lili Of The Valley Thursday challenge seems rather apt cos it’s
Warm & Cosy
What a good idea – stay indoors and get the crafty stash out I say :)
There is a £15 voucher for one lucky winner to spend in the shop plus some gorgeous DT cardage so if you get a sec be sure to nip over and have a mooch.
After my trip to the dark side yesterday, I’ve now gone back to the light, or rather to the pink.
I used another one of the beautiful new Christmas releases and this one is Moonlight Wishes and as always I coloured her with Copics in the following colours -
E000, E00, E21, R11, E50, C00, C1, C3, C5, G94, R85, RV0000, RV000, RV00, YG0000, YG01, YG03 and I also added a tiny bit of polychromos pencilling, but not too much.
The papers are all from Nitwits and are from these collections - Bumbleberry Cottage, Tippy Toes and Confection Too and that lovely lace is 25mm white flat lace which I pleated at the back with DST so no stitching involved!!
I added a few tiny heart shaped gems to this doily cos I thought it looked a little bit plain on it’s own.
The lace, button and ribbon are all from The Ribbon Girl.
So that’s the old card done.
It’s a busy old day for me again today – is there any other sort I wonder!! – and I have to try and find an outfit for my nieces’ wedding which is … tomorrow!! Talk about last minute Annie.
Kyla is a flower girl and her dress is jut gorgeous. She is looking forward to going to the hairdressers in the morning to have her hair done, bless her, She has been before but only for a trim so this is something a bit different for her and she will be living the dream while she is in there!!!. No doubt pictures will appear on here at some point lol!!
Talking of lol, I’ll leave you with a little story about one of my lovely card club ladies. She told us this at the last card club (she was still mortified) and I have been sniggering about it ever since.
A member of her family had died (no that's not the funny bit !!) and she made a beautiful sympathy card and sent it out. It was only at the funeral that somebody asked her why she had written what she had in the card.
She looked baffled and then they explained that ‘sorry for your loss lol’ perhaps wasn't the thing to put.
Bless her heart, she thought it was lots of love (she is in her 70s!!!).
I’ll be back tomorrow with something that it completely out of my comfort zone for sure, on several counts so see you then and have a fab day. Stay warm and cozy and hugs to all xxx
