Zingy, Springy & Anythingy :)

Morning lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today.

It’s the 29th February today so it’s the one day out of 1461 days when us girlies get our chance to  propose.  It makes me slightly uncomfortable in a way because if they didn't ask you in the 1460 days before (or however long you have been with them for), then part of me would be thinking that maybe they weren't really up for it.

Or maybe I am just a cynical old moo with about as much romance in my soul as a fish finger!!!!

Anyway, this is me on my wedding day. I really did kiss a frog didn't I lol!!


Anyway enough of this leap year nonsense!! It’s time to nip overt and check out what;s happening at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and today we have one of your fave themes cos

Anything Goes

so fill your creative boots and have fun.

There is as always a whopper of a …

… which one lucky girlie can spend ….

Simon Says Stamp

The DT are showcasing My Mind's Eye products this week so if you have any we would love to see you use them but you don’t have to if you don't want to.

So I did ….

The papers I used are from one of my fave ever MME papers, the Life of the Party 6 x 6 pack.

The image is of course Tilda & Her Bunny and I coloured her with Copics in these colours -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20

Hair – E25, E35, E47. E50, E81 and check me out doing a brunette Tilda …. but doing it quite badly :(

The rest – E43, E81, RV0000, RV000, RV00, RV10, RV29, YG0000, YG00, YG03, YG95

No Tilda swirl die today – I gave it a day off for good behaviour.

I went for the Magnolia Doily Flower die instead. I inked the edges then added a bit of glitter, then made a rolled flower which I topped off with some bling.  To finish it off I added a couple of leaves punched using a  Martha Stewart Frond Leaf punch.

The shape behind the image was cut using a die from the Spellbinders Fleur de Lys Motifs Shapeabilities set.
