Morning sweet peeps and what a lovely Spring morning it is here in Chester. The sun in shining and the birds are singing and it’s gorgeous:)

And speaking of gorge, I am so pleased to tell you that on the third Tuesday of every month now, I am having a oh so fab candy prize giveaway which the lovely Mary & Andrea  over at ….

….  have given to me .

We all love a bit of ribbon and you can’t have too much in my humble opinion. In fact I don't think I make many cards without ribbon it it somewhere. So as it is indeedy the third Tuesday of March today, it’s time for my first giveaway.

This month I thought I would be ever so predictable and go for …….


… PINK :)

So if you fancy your chances at winning this delish pink ribbon kit, all you have to do is leave your name with old Linky at the end of the post and I will draw the winner next Tuesday and the hugest of thanks to The Ribbon Girl for their sponsorship xxx

Now as it’s Tuesday it’ s time to nip over and check out what’s happening with the Papertake Weekly gang and this week it’s time for a game of Bingo and here ….

bingo march 2012

… is the card.

If you get a sec go and have a mooch cos as always the DT have made some fab stuff to share with you.

I also mentioned a sneak peek and today is the first day of the sneak peeks for the brand new Lili of The Valley release which will be on sale on March 28th.

So here ….

… is one of the brand new never seen before images.

It’s  called Patchwork Butterfly and how sweet is that little poppet bunny!!!  I coloured it with these Copics-

B0000, B000, B00, C00, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, R85, RV0000, RV00, RV10, YG0000, YG03

The papers are what I had left over from the Tulip pack I used the other day.

I went for the centre line across on the bingo card,   ie ribbon, free and punched shapes.

The ribbon is the same  15mm gingham that is in the Ribbon Girl giveaway kit and the punched shape I used was made from a  Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch. As for the free, well it had to be my new toy, the Martha Stewart PATP Deco Fan Shells set.

Good old Martha :)

Both punches are from Simon Says Stamp.

So that’s me all done.

Ohh did you guess right re the killer in Corrie then?

I have to say that I sussed her out ages ago. They don’t call me the Miss Marple of Saughall Village for nowt peeps!!! I assumed it had to be a minor-ish character as none of the main ones were seen to be leaving.  I did consider the new girlfriend at one point  but my money was always on Mummy Dearest' Foster. Shame she didn’t take silly Sally and even dafter Kevin with her – what a pair of twerps  they are (see, I think it’s real!!)

And what about poor old ‘Hev’ in Easties?  It’s been a bad week for death in Soap-land!! In fact, if you consider John Barton in Emmerdale as well, it’s been a bad year all round so far …. and we are only in March!!!!

Anyway I better go (and get a life by the looks of it) and I’ll see you tomoz.

Take care and have a fab day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Hi Dawny,
This is a gorgeous card today, as everyday. I love the soft blues and white, it really makes me feel like clear sunny skies are on their way. I have entered the draw but as I don't have a blog yet I have linked to my Pinterest page. Please let me know it that isn't allowed.
Have a great day. Regards Linda x

Pauline C said...

Gorgeous card Dawny - I really do love these new stamps, can't wait for them to come online seeing as i can't get to the NEC. And what delish pinkness!! - thanks so much for the gorgeous giveaway :-) Like you i had got my eye on Frank's mum .... alwyas thought she had a somewhat neurotic look about her lol (I too have difficulty sometimes reminding myself it's only a story) - but did you hear about randy Ken Barlow and his 1000 real life lovers - some of whom apparently actually called him Ken at the crucial moment??!!?? Now that really is talking Corrie mania to ridiculous lengths rofl!!
