Pink & Green Should Definitely Be Seen :)

Morning peeps and at last, it’s our very first one ….


Yes, the Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge is up and running and out first theme for you is

New Beginnings

There is a rather scrummy prize this week so if you get a sec, please nip and check it all out .

So I said that yesterday I had made a card which I was actually pleased with ….

… and this is the very chap!!

Yes there are one or two little mishaps (ooops and aren't there always!!!) but generally I actually like it. I like the zingy colours, I like the clean look, I like the simple layout, I like the embellies, and I like the image.

What I don't like are the somewhat  grainy pics but there was no light at all here yesterday and I ended up having to shoot these in night time mode which is never good. But never mind you cant have it all I guess lol!!

The sharp eyed will notice that I have kept at least one of my rezzies and the new sewing machine has at last been used – it’s only been there since October (how shameful!!).

So be warned that you may see a lot more stitching on the old blog now!!

So I used one of last year’s images – this is The Little Things and I chose this as my image as my new beginning was the start of the sweet little romance going on here!!

I coloured it with a mixture of Copics and Polychromos pencils and I used these colours -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair – E41, E42, E43, E50
Clothes etc – E07, E08, E09, E41, E42, E43, E50, G99, R85, RV0000, RV00, RV10, RV29, YG0000, YG00, YG01, YG03


The papers are from the FBQ Confection and FBQ Butterfly Kisses collections over at Nitwits

Ohh these little blooms are so sweet I think and the pinks and greens go nicely with the colour theme here. They are Mulberry pink two tone 15mm pretty blossoms and they are from The Ribbon Girl, as are the 15mm hot pink no 52 microdot ribbon and 9mm hot pink / white saddlestitch ribbon

Sorry chicks, I cannot for the life of me remember what that MS PATP punch is called. If anybody knows please let me know and I’ll update this bit. That will teach me to chuck out the packaging before noting the name won't it :(

The little self adhesive pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts

So there you have it – all done for another day.

I do hope you are all OK cos the weather was fierce last night wasn’t it :(  Blimy O’Reilly (whoever he is/was) , I thought the lamppost on the main road was going to snap in half cos it was bending so much!!

Take care and see you tomoz.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
