Twisting My Melon Man!!!

   Picture 003c copy 

Hi there lovely peeps and happy Saturday to y’all :)

I’m a day late with the old card because I had to take his Lordship for physio and it took longer than we thought and  then we got ‘Kyla’d’  so it all sort of went out of the window yesterday.

So anyway this is my card for this week’s Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and this week our theme is


We are sponsored today by the best ribbon gals in the biz and of course I mean …

.. so nip across and have a mooch if you get a sec :)

So this is what I did.

I went for Spring colours and thought I’d do something different from my usual 6x6 and so I went for a twisted easel card. Well twisted was about right because they are the easiest peasiest cards in the word to make,  but I simply  cannot take a decent pic of them to save my life. By the end of it my lot were very nearly calling the cops because I was quite frankly incensed with it lol!!!

So apols lovely peeps  :(

I used Watercan Tilda and coloured her with these Copics -

Skin -  E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20

Hair – E42, E43, E50, E81

The rest – C00, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, G99, R85, RV0000, RV00, RV10, YG0000, YG00, YG03

The papers are all from Nitwits .

I used a Magnolia Lovely Fence Die and chopped it up … like you do!!!

The butterfly was made using 2 Memory Box dies.

The bottom layer is Darla Butterfly and the top is Vivienne Butterfly. They look nice together I think and these dies cut like a dream. All the dies here today are available from Simon Says Stamp.

The beautimous bow was made 38mm Pink/White Striped Grosgrain from The Ribbon Girl :)

Ohh this pic is dreadful.

So much cloning going on in the background to hide the paper joins that it looks filthy, cry cry!! But hopefully you can see how it is all set up.

Like I said,  taking these pics really was twisting my melon and majorly!!! . So I thought that I’d share a bit of melon twisting  Happy Mondays with you seeing as it’s Saturday and the lovely Miss Marcea does her Music Saves My Soul thing today. So I’ll leave you with a very young Sean Ryder and if you get to about the third minute you’ll see a very young Bez  complete with shed loads of specs (why??? who knows – not even him I suspect!!) strutting his stuff. 

I love Bez and I’ll let you into a little secret here …. many moons ago when I was a fair old bit younger than I am now, I used to do a very good Bez  impression when I’d had a few!!!!! Truly it must have been a sight to behold (not)!!

I tried to teach Kyla to do the freaky dance thing when she was about 2 but she just used to look at me like I was completely off my rocker :) Mmm well she may have had a point there!!

So enjoy the Mondays, even though it’s Saturday - at least we got the ‘happy’ bit right!!

See you next week  loveliest of peeps and have the best weekend.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxxx
