Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK.

… and look what’s up ….


…. for grabs :)

Also, as it's the third Tuesday of the month,  my regular visitors will know that it's time for this month’s Gorgeous Giveaway, which has been very kindly donated by The Ribbon Girl – thank you chicksies xxxx.

And this month it’s  a gorgeous ….


……  Cream & White Mini Ribbon Kit.

All you have to do is to leave me a comment and then leave your name with old Linky and I’ll announce the winner next Tuesday.

So ….

… here’s what I did -  I went for ribbon, die cut and button.

The image is called Fun Birthday and it’s one of the brand new soon to be released Lili of The Valley Summer Bears collection which will be going on sale on 25th June. And if you want to see more of the new release then check out the DT and Ideas to Inspire blog :)

The images in this release are quite clever I think because they are perfect for everyone so will be a great addition to your stash. And they come with a sentiment as well – just perfect :)

I coloured this sweetie with Copics in these colours - 

B0000, E42, E43, E50, E51, E81, RV0000, RV000, RV00, RV14, RV34, YG0000, YG23

and I added a bit of  polychromos pencilling to add a bit of depth.

The pretty papers are from the Nitwits FQB Stuffed With Love collection.

Love the sentiment which come with the image.

The bow was made using 23mm white organza and topped off with a Pale Pink Small Polka Dot Spotty Button and both are of course from The Ribbon Girl.

The border was cut using a Memory Box pearl lace die – isn’t it pretty peeps.

And the butterflies are also Memory Box dies – I used Darla Butterfly and Vivienne Butterfly and all the dies are from Simon Says Stamp

So that’s the old card done and I’m off now to put my feet up.

We’ve been at the Cheshire Show this afternoon and we walked miles (mainly to and from the food tent lol!!).   We came back with some pork, black pudding and mustard sausages, some treacle basted bacon (drooool) and some Stinking Bishop cheese (drooooool again). We did see some livestock as well cos I just had to go and see the piggies – awww. So it wasn't all about stuffing our faces. But that was a fairly big part of it!!!!

Remember last week when I mentioned my filthy wellies?

Well Lolsie thought I ought to put a pic of them on here, so  ……

Picture 002

… here they are in all their minging glory!!!!

Like I said, these are my indestructible Captain Scarlet wellies and they are over 30 years old - I loves ‘em.

What a filth bag I am - how very shameful. BUT I saw plenty today that were far worse than mine. I also saw brand new squeaky clean wellies too. Now I reckon that these people either just get them out when they go to this sort of thing, or they got them just for the occasion.

Or maybe they are just very very clean!!!

Right, on the note I am off. I’ll be back tomoz so I’ll see you then, and don’t forget to pop your name with Linky if you want to be in with a chance of winning this month’s gorgeous giveaway.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

What a gorgeous card Dawny. I love the colours you have used, they are so soft and delicate. Love your wellies, they look well loved and useful. I must be honest, I haven't seen my wellies in years, I don't tend to need them these days!
Have a good evening.
