Hi there peeps and hope all is well today.

Over at the new and very fabulous Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge, it’s our second week and what a BRILLIANT one it is cos we want you to choose

Your Favourite LOTV Stamp

Well I tell you, this one had me a bit stumped cos how could you choose – it’s like picking your favourite kid lol!!! But choose we did and I’m curious to know which one is your fave so if you get a sec,  I’d love you to leave me a comment and let me know :)

And check out what's up for grabs …..


As we are sponsored this week by Mary and Andrea from the Ribbon Girl, we have this gorgeous kit here, which is made up of  5 metres of beautiful cotton and cluny lace in white and cream, 5 metres Rose Petal vintage style seam binding, 1 metre of pink and 1 metre of green sumptuous satin, 1 metre of grosgrain ribbon, 1 metre of Old Rose tiny ric rac, 1 pack of 10 sparkly round buttons and 1 bunch of 5 pink/white 30mm mulberry roses! 

Thank Mary & Andrea  cos this is beautisimous :)

So which one did I choose then?

Well I went for Miss Diva Strop here – she is called It’s My Party really.

It was a toss up between her, Little Dot and Pom Pom but she just slightly edged it. I LOVE the expression and haven't we all been there (and aren’t some of us still cos we all know a diva or 2 don't we!!!)

I coloured her with these Copics -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R11, R20
Hair – E41, E42, E43, E50
Clothes etc – C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, R85, RV0000, RV000, RV00, RV10, YG0000, YG00, YG03

plus one or two polychomos pencils to add a bit of depth – like ya do :)

And these papers are newies  and are from Nitwits – they are from the FBQ Val‘n’Tine and Val’n’Tine Too collections.

We like these a LOT!!!

I did a bit of a piggy fiddle again here.

I had some 25mm white flat lace from The Ribbon Girl left over from another card so I gathered it up into a flower and added some Wild Orchid Crafts bloomage here and there.

Oooops isn’t just the sentiment cos I didn’t stick down one of the flowers very well did I (dope!!)

The tab thing is a SU punch – not sure what it;s called cos I’ve had this for ages now. Oh I almost forgot, the good old Magnolia leaf and swirl die is back in favour (oh please don't groan cos I promise that I will give it a little rest again soon lol!!)

AND the sewing machine was hammered once again. I swear if I didn't know better, I’d think it cringes when it sees me walking towards it!!

I had a fabulous catch up today with the sweetness that is Miss Marcea and it was so nice to chat again cos she is such a poppet. She was saying how my style is reverting back to it’s old self and I think she’s right. I’m not conscious of changing it but it does seem to be heading that way again.

Right I best be off cos we are going to the gym and he who must be obeyed (hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa) is ready and waiting to go (he is obsessed with keeping fit and I am obsessed with keeping fat it would seem!!)

I’ll see you soon if not sooner but have a lovely evening and huggiest of huggly hugs to all xxx
