Just A Teeny Bit Bright Today …. And A Rather Yummy Giveaway :)

Picture 007c copy      

Hi there lovely peeps and I hope that you are all okay today.

It's that time of the week when we nip over and check out what's happening with the  Papertake Weekly girlies and this week challenge is 

A Stitch In Time

All you have to do is add stitching to your work and that will be fine. It can be real or fake - it's up to you.

We are sponsored today by our very own Mary and Andrea at The Ribbon Girl and there is a  ….


… voucher up for grabs for one lucky winner :)

So ….

.. this is what I did.

I haven't used a hAnglar & stAnglar image for quite awhile so I thought today that I would  - just for a change!! I cannot get onto the H&S website I'm so sorry peeps,  so I can't leave a link here as I don't know what this image is called.

But anyhoos, I coloured it with these Copics –

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20

Hair – E25, E29, E33, E50

The rest – B0000, B000, B00, B12, Y0000, Y02, Y06, Y08, Y17, Y38

And as always, the gorge papers are all by Nitwits

The old card’s a bit bright but not quite in the same league as the last couple have been. But I do love bright, especially with lots of white space. I think it gives a really clean look which I happen to rather like (you may have noticed!!).

I thought I'd put the pics in a row today just for a change and stuff I used here is -

Tilda Lace die from Simon Says Stamp

Royal Peacock Seam Binding from The Ribbon Girl (I added a small bow made from really narrow white satin ribbon and IRL it looks much nicer than it does on here  - sack the photographer!!!

Tiny self adhesive pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts

And you can see that I did the fake stitching thing rather than get my lazy butt into the next room and use the sewing machine!!!

So who fancies a little bit of yumminess dropping through their letterbox? 

Well if you do, you are in the right place peeps cos it's that time of the month when I do a little giveaway which Mary and Andrea at The Ribbon Girl have kindly donated, and this month it’s …..


…  a beautimous cream and white mini ribbon kit.

So if you fancy winning this, and who wouldn’t, all you have to do is leave me a comment. I’ll draw the winner next Tuesday and good luck to everyone who enters. 

Mahoosive thanks to Mary &Andrea for sponsoring me today xxxx

I must just tell you that the little baby jumpers have started to arrive and a huge thank you to everybody once again for all their help. They look so sweet all together in a pile and I’ll take some pics when I get a sec to share here.

Right, well that's me done for today.

‘Scuse the shortie today peeps but  I have so much work to do I don't know where to start,  so it’s going to be a case of one thing at a time. That’s after my lunch of course!!!  After all, man (and piggy for that matter),  cannot work on empty stomach alone, and mine is growling like I don't know what!!  In fact, if you open your windows, you will probably hear it lol!!

I hope you all have a lovely day-to-day and I'll leave you with a sneaky peek of tomorrow's card …..
