Catching Up (Or How To Be Disorganised!!!) And Some Thank Yous xxx

Picture 008c copy

Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK today xxx

I’m doing a bit of a catch up today and sharing a card which I made for last week’s Just Magnolia Challenge but I had probs uploading it so it never went on the main blog in time. I intended to put it on here this week while the challenge was still running but due to being a dozy beggar, that never happened, so I thought I’d share it today.

The challenge was Pink  White / Red …..

… so this is what I did.

I used Through My Heart Tilda and coloured her with these Copics -

E000, E00, E11, E21, R11, R20, E41, E42, E43, E50, R17, R27, R59, R85, RV0000, RV00, RV01, RV10

The papers I used were sent to me by the lovely Tracy at Dies To Die For. She had lots of spares and thought we could all use them up. So this is the first one I made with them,  and thank you for being so generous to us T xxx

I have to fess up here cos I nicked this idea from my friend and fellow pickled onion lover, the card making / crafty genius that is  Chris Dark ( so thanks for your inspiration sweet cheeks and hope to see you next year xxx)

I used the little heart die as a mini easel card thing on the main easel card if you get my drift.

It’s so sweet and such a clever idea (so clearly not one of mine then!!)

I have to say thank you as well to Janice over at Sir Stampalot for sending me the heart and lace dies (amongst other things) for a recent commission I did xxx.  As you can see Janice, these things are for life and not just for commissions lol!!

I will use them loads for sure.

So here’s the shopping list peeps -

So I’m done for the week.

Don’t forget that there is another fab challenge this week over at Just Magnolia and this week it’s the turn of Team A  and my sweet friend Donalda is hosting so if you get a sec, nip and have a moocheroonie :)

I’m off to do some work then I have the prep to do later for tomorrow’s jewellery class at Purple Butterfly Crafts (we are going to be very glam tomorrow lol!!) and then this weekend it’s prepping for Monday’s card club. Phew I am exhausted just thinking about but it keeps me of the streets I guess lol!!

We have Kyla tomorrow night instead of tonight this weekend so Rebekah reminded me that it’s the Christmas Market in Chester (thank you chick xx)  and it looks so pretty so we are heading into town when it starts to go dark so that she can see it all. There is an old fashioned helter skelter there as well and I’m not sure she has ever seen one before.

Here’s some pics to get us in the mood …

Apparently there is no big wheel this year but I liked the pic so I included it anyway!!

So have a great weekend, whatever you are doing,  and I’ll see you next week.

Hugs to all xxx

Lovely pink card and the pics of Chester reminded me of visiting Andrea when she was at Bangor University - we used to meet up in Chester so the journey for us was a little bit shorter! Enjoy your visit, hugs Mary G x

Oh so beautiful sweetie! I absolutely love your colours, colouring, everything about this gorgeous creation of yours and the little easel looks fantastic. Thank you for the link up, you're the best, it's very much appreciated MWAH! Can you believe it BARRY NORMANS have finally arrived down here in the deep south :D, haven't succumbed yet......they've got seeds in them which puts me off. Garners have disappeared off the shelves, what's a girl to do this Christmas? Wish I was going the Christmas market with you, what a pretty site it is, have fun and speak soon and hopefully see you next year. Big hugs xxx
