Hi there sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today.
If you are up North, I hope that you are not snowed in or without power  -in which case you won’t be able to see this but I am thinking of you xxx)

So time to catch up with the Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge and what a fab challenge today cos it’s all about

Buttons & Bows

Well was I in my element or what!!!

This week we are sponsored by CRAFTERS COMPANION they are offering a £10 voucher to spend on their Website  :)


So …..

… this is what I did.

This is actually for somebody but I can’t say who cos she reads my wafflings in here and it’s supposed to be a surprise.  Although she may well twig if she sees it lol!!

I used Never Too Old For A Hug and I coloured her in these Copics -

Skin -  E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20

Hair – E43, E50, E81

The rest – E25, E29, E35, E43,  E50, E81, R85, RV0000, RV000, RV00

The papers are from Nitwits but because of my printer issues, they weren't freshly printed and I had to get them out of my paper stash box. So I’m not sure from which collection.

But if I get a sec,  I’ll check it all out and edit this bit :)

Oh what a gorgeous bow this is.

I made it from 38mm fuschia  faux silk ribbon from The Ribbon Girl (of course!!) and topped it off with a Magnolia Doily Flower and a Fuschia Pink Small Polka Dot Spotty Button.

Same here and the buttons are from the Ribbon Girl

I decorated the inside to match the front as I wanted it to be special for my friend :)

So there you go – all done for today.

I am trying to get organised here (hahahaaaaa!!) as it is our annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday.  The grass is mown so the kids won’t get lost (!!!) and I have made 6 baskets but I have a few more little surprises to do for the dinks before then. I think there are  6 kids this year as some are away, but even so, they are not allowed to gorge on the goodies they find – only one or two as it’s before lunch. Well that’s the official reason.  Can you image 6 hyped up little beggars, off their face on sugar? Yes, well so can I, so that’s why they aren't allowed to go silly until they are in the comfort of their own homes!!!!

What a misery I am lol!!

So I best be off and carry on with my to do list seeing as it won’t do itself.  I am also on incubator watch as we have 4eggs in there at the mo and we don’t want them to cook so we have to check the temperature very couple of hours. Then we are off to watch her ladyship having her riding lesson this evening. She is coming back to stay here tonight as they are having a little visitor tomorrow and she wants to stay there to look after him. Poor lad – she is very maternal, even at 6 and just wants to mother him all the time. He on the other hand is 3 and does not want to be mothered all the time so I can see a slight clash ahead!!

Have a lovely day and if I’m not back here before then, have a lovely Easter.

See you soon and huggiest of hugs to all xxxx
