Lilac, Lavender & A Little Cutie Too (Plus This Week’s BFTP)

Picture 006c copy    

Morning lovely peeps and we have another gorgeous day here in the UK today.

We have sun but no fuel it would seem as we have all been panic buying, but it’s hard not to when you think you will run out.

Anyway it’s time to nip over to see what’s happening at the Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge and this week our theme is

Anything Goes

so  time to fill your creative boots so to speak!!

We are sponsored this week by Nitwits


So ….

… this is what I did.

I went away from my usual colours and used lilacs and lavenders. I also used another of the brand new release which of course is now on sale and today I used Patchwork Bunch Of Balloons.

I coloured him with these Copics -

Bear – E25, E29, E33, E35, E50, E51, E99

Balloons – V000, V06, V09, V12, V15, V17, V91, V95

and I also used some polychromos pencils as well.

The papers are from the new FQB Gratitude collection from Nitwits

You can just about see this but I made a double bow using some mauve vintage seam binding and some 25mm white plain sheer ribbon and both are from The Ribbon Girl :)

I made a flower using the Peony Petals die set from Simon Says Stamp. I inked the edges and added some glitter then topped them off with a small punched circle which I’d covered with some seed beads I happened to have on my desk.

The inside was decorated to go with the front of the card and I will be adding this card to my ebay site shortly

So that’s the card done and now its time for my blast from the past.
I thought that  seeing as the sun was out, I’d choose a sunny, happy, feel good sort of vid and this one always made me smile. My kid used to love it when they were young as well  because they liked the fact the the little girl gets the old man a drink!!! Aww, what nice caring little dinks I had lol!!!
Personally I liked it cos I liked Michael Stipe, although I now know I was barking completely up the wrong tree there (not that I was ever likely to run off with him of course lol).
Anyway enjoy the vid - I hope it makes you smile -  and see you tomoz.
Have a wonderful  day and huggiest of sunny hugs to all xxx
