Morning peeps and I hope you are all managing to stay warm today - the temperature has really dropped these last few days here in Chester. It’s fleecy PJs and electric blanket time here at Chez Piggy and even Ricardo isn't moaning about the blanket going on, mainly because the cold work him up on Sunday night.
So as it’s Tuesday, it’s time to bob over and catch up with what’s happening over at Papertake Weekly and this week our theme is
Buttons, Bows, Bling & Blooms
You don’t have to use them all – you can use whichever ones you want – but I managed to get them all on here.
We have the most gorgeous prize as well because we are sponsored by Mary & Andrea at The Ribbon Girl and there is a gorgeous kit that they’ve put together so if you get a sec, nip and check it all out peeps.
… here’s what I did.
I haven’t done one of these circle cards for a while but I wanted to do something a little bit different.
I used one of the Lili of The Valley Spring Animal images – this one is Gift Wrapped – and gave him the Copics treatment and I went for Spring colours – all nice and clean and fresh looking – and I used these pens -
Bunny – C00. C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C7, R00, R11, R20
Butterflies & prezzie – B0000, B000, B00, B12, Y00, Y02, Y06, Y08, Y38, YG0000, YG00, YG03
Grass – G99, YG0000, YG03
A little arrangement made from these -
I cut up bits of paper lace made from a MS Eyelet Lace punch and stuck them around the edges of the card base, after I had sewn the thing to within an inch of it’s life!!! Phew, it took oh soooo long to do!
So there’s the old card done and I’ll be back tomoz with something slightly different – a bit in yer face it is.
Here, have a little sneakie peekie ……
… yes, I have deviated from the blonde and have done brown hair for a change – ooooo).
Tell you more tomorrow but till then, have a fab day, stay warm and toastie and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
