Morning loveliest of peeps and hope you are all having a nice day today.
We are nearly at the end of the week and time to head off and catch up with the Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge.
This week our theme is
Ribbons & Lace
and say no more cos this is another right up my street sort of challenge!!
We’re sponsored today by the fabulous Ribbon Girls and there is a rather delish prize up for grabs so if you get a sec, nip over for a mooch.
… here’s the old card.
I was going to do a pink theme but thought I’d go for something a little bit different – I don’t like to be predictable lol!!! So I went for green which isn't a colour I am overly fond of but I like how this card came out.
Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20
Hair – E25, E29, E35, E50, E51, E81
The rest – RV000, RV00, RV29, YG0000, YG00, YG03, YG95
The lace is 25mm white flat lace and again this is from The Ribbon Girl :) Have you seen the new stuff on TRG website by the way? There’s some lovely coloured lace, liquid pearls and some pretty striped buttons. You can see them all here.
So we’re all done with the card and now it’s time for this week’s BFTP.
This was recorded in 2011 so it isn’t from THAT long ago to be honest, but both songs on it (yes it’ a BOGOF BFTP today!!) are from 1973 and 2004. Live & Let Die is the one Bond film that I actually enjoyed and I loved the title track. And then we move to 2004 and along came McFly. I was past all that boy band malarkey but I think they have real talent and 5 Colours In Her Hair was their first single.
So this was recorded for Pop Star To Opera Star (yes I am reality TV junkie!!.) Danny Jones (from McFly) had been on the year before and he came back with his band to do a bit of a turn with the violinist David Garrett.
Well I tell you peeps, I had to keep rewinding it cos it is awesome - my Nicola loved it as well. Stunning isn't the word and not just because Harry Judd in in it. (I am wayyyyyy too old for any of the McFly laddies I know, but Harry is my fave cos he is rather gorge).
See what I mean – who couldn’t be wild about Harry!!!
Anyway, turn up the volume and get ready for 4:20 of pure brilliance (IMHO of course).
Enjoy and I’ll see you back here soon as soon and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
