Morning lovely peeps and I hope that you are all ok today and that you had a nice weekend :)x

Today is Papertake Weekly day (which sounds weird!!) and I realised that it has been weeks since I actually made card for it, even though I have been doing the posts. But it’s  nice to be back with my teamies cos they are a fab group of girlies and I have to thank them all for soldiering on without me these last few weeks  xxx.

As it’s the last one of the month, we have one of me sketches …..

.. and it’s this one here which is very like me ie clean and simple lol!!!

We’re sponsored by those lovely peeps across the water, the fabulous Simon Says Stamp and there’s a $20 voucher up for grabs so if you get a sec, nip over and check it all out – you have to be in it to win it :).

… this is what I did.

I used one of the new Lili Of The Valley releases and this little sweetie is Pretty Bouquet. As per usual, I did the Copics thing and I used these colours -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20

Hair – E42, E43, E50, E81

The rest – RV0000, RV00, RV000, RV10, RV29, YG0000, YG00, YG03, YG95, YR04, YR07, YR17

Ooooerr, this isn't like me!!

Is that a bit of distressing going on there?

Yes it is and I cannot think why I did it really.  I'm not sure that it lends itself but anyway it’s done now. I just cannot get this technique right and I do wonder if maybe my style (ie plain and boring) isn't really suited. But I cannot help meself from dabbling at times!!

I also cannot help using the Magnolia leaf and swirl die either it would seem!!!

The papers btw are from the new Nitwits collection that is FQB One Birdie Lane – I think that these ones came from One Birdie Too. They are really pretty with fresh Spring colours.

This ribbon is beautimous.

It sits just how you want it to sit and is a joy to work with. It’s 38mm fuschia  faux silk ribbon and is of course from our very own Mary and Andrea over at The Ribbon Girl.  The little bling flower is one that I found in my stash looking a bit forlorn but it goes rather well with the ribbon :)

So there you have it me darlins.

Did you watch Dancing On Ice on Sunday? Jeez that blade going in Matt Evers face was a bit nasty.

But I loved his and Jorgie so not Porgie’s routine.

I didn't love Chico and Andy doing a bit of a musical thing before they skated – bah humbug, you dour old moo.  I am such a party pooper. And please in the name of God, somebody tell me that Chico had his hair like that for the show and that it isn't a permanent fixture???? 

Is it?????

He looks like he has been at the home hair dye and left it on a bit too long  then caught sight of himself in the mirror.  He was  probably too busy doing his ‘what time is it’ thing and missed the ‘it’s time to wash it off now’ bit.   He wouldn’t look out of place in any of the gay clubs in Chester now. My nephew, who is gay-er than Mardi Gras and camper than a row of pink tents,  bless him, goes to them  and I’ve seen his mates!!!!!!  And I went with him once and had a fab night. 

But I do hope that he (sorry, I’m back to Chico now) gets shut of it cos I am not at all fussed. To be fair, he would probably say the same about me if he saw me as I just had mine cut short in an attempt to get rid of the purple / pink / red dye that I have caked on these last few years. I’m now thinking pot, kettle and what a hypocrite Dawny – who am I to criticise his locks, or anybody else’s for that matter!!!

So on that note, I’m off. I’ll be back tomoz with my card for the  Simon Says Stamp Challenge – no sneakie peekie today as I haven't yet taken the pic – far too busy casting aspersions on poor Chico’s barnet no doubt.

But have yourselves a great day and I’ll see you back here bright and early.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
