Hi there sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today.

It’s  blowing  a gale here and the rain has been quite bad. So I do hope it’s better where you are :(    We have our Easter Egg hunt here on Sunday and I am praying it won’t rain!!!

Fingers crossed!!

So today we are heading off over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and we have a fab theme for you. This week we want you to

USE your FAVOURITE TOOL

and as always there is a …….

So this is what I did and my fave tool has to be my good old …..

*GC-001 Spellbinders Grand Calibur Cut & Emboss Machine

Grand Calibur

I use this practically on every card I do and I would be lost without it.

So my card features good old Tilda and I coloured her with these Copics -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20

Hair – E35, E41, E43, E50, E81

The rest – E50, E81, G99, RV0000, RV00, RV29, Y11, Y15, Y17. Y38YG0000, YG00, YG03,

I mixed the papers today and they are from these paper packs -

*American Crafts Dear Lizzy NEOPOLITAN 6 x 6 Paper Pad      *My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 LIFE OF THE PARTY Paper Pad LT1113

If you do the clicky piccie thing it will take you straight to the shop :)

I got the old sewing machine out – not done that for a while!! 

I also used one of the Memory Box dies over a mat made with a  Martha Stewart PATP punch :)

I also brought out the Magnolia leaf and swirl die which is probably in my top ten fave tools to be fair.

I also used one of the gorgeous Peony Petals dies and topped it with a Magnolia Doily Flower and a rolled rose. Instead of using a leaf die, I had a scrap of old ribbon in my stash so I used that to make the leaf instead!!!

It looks quite snazzy I think :)

I am on a real flyer today cos I have so many things to do that I don’t even want to think about it so please excuse the mad dash here. I’ll say toodle pip and see you all soon.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

What a beauty of a card. Fabulous combination of colours, so spring-like! Brill idea to use green ribbon as leaves, might pinch (sorry, copy!) that myself.
