Morning sweet peeps and what fabulous weather we are having at the mo!!
It was like a summer’s day yesterday and today is looking like more of the same – wooohooooo :)
So before we do anything, I have to let you know who won my ribbon giveaway – the post is here – and that
lucky girlie is ………………………………………..
…. YOU Vicky Angel Drummer
Well done to you and if you email me your deets, I’ll pass them on to Mary & Andrea and hugest of thanks to them for a beautisimous giveaway xxx Thank you also to everyone who took part and there will be another one next month :)
So what do we have today then?
Well it’s Tuesday so it’s Papertake Weekly time and as it’s the last one of the month, it’s sketchie time as well.
And here …..
… is the bad boy. We’re sponsored today by Heidi over at …..
… Simon Says Stamp so if you get a sec, nip over and have a moochio :)
And here’s the old card and I’ll be popping it on ebay later on :)
I’ve done another sneakie peekie of one of the new release – not long now girls – and this one is called Close Your Eyes. It’s ever so cute :)
It was coloured with Copics in these colours -
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20
Hair – E25, E35, E43, E51, E81
The rest - E25, E29, E35, E51, G99, R85, RV0000, RV00, RV10YG0000, YG00, YG03
and of course the papers are all from Nitwits.
I got these gems from the NEC on Saturday from The Hobby House – absolutely bargainous peeps!!!
I did the inside of the card to match the front.
And there you go.
Well what a fab time we had at the NEC on Saturday. I went with my Nikkie and we had a good old bead shop :)
All we have to do now is make something with them lol!!!
I love going to the NEC but not for the shopping. For me, the best bit is catching up with lovely peeps who started out as blog buds and ended up as friends, and we had a very nice lunch in Wetherspoons. A highlight this year for me was finally getting to meet Mary & Andrea from The Ribbon Girl. and they are both every bit as nice as I imagined they would be. The usual gang were there including Kim Piggott and her gorgeous daughter Claire who had a good old non crafty chat with Nikkie, my cyber twin Kath (love ya Mrs K xxx) , Heather (who looked fab following her illness last year) , Jo, Tab and Kim Dellow. Thank you one and all for a super couple of hours xxx MIA though were Mummy Fairy Jacqui and Chris Dark but hopefully next time girlies cos I really missed you xxx
Well did you see the final of DOI then? Not a shock that Matthew won cos he was pretty awesome. I did feel a bit sorry for Chico when he nearly dropped Jodeyne – that could have been really nasty!!! But that’s it for another year and I do hope that for the next series they replace Christine Bleakely – talk about smug!!! It may be me but Phil doesn’t seem to have the same chemistry that he had with Fern or Holly.
So now it’s time for BGT.
Ohh my life, what about that young lad then? It actually made me cry when he sang.
If you didn't see it peeps, here’s a little clip …..
.. is he amazing or what!!
And you just know that he’s had a hard time of it because of his weight so if he ever was bullied – and to be fair, it didn't say that he had been but I did wonder - then it’s one in the eye for them now isn’t. I’m sure that this kid will do really well.
Right I’m off to get some work done and then later I am baby sitting Miss Kyla cos Emma has parents’ evening. She wanted to come with us on Saturday but my nerves would not have stood it – I’d have been terrified of losing her. I had to drop her off bright and early so we missed the baking thing but I’m sure we will make up for it next week.
Have a fabulous day and see you tomoz and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
