Hi there loveliest of peeps and hope you are all OK xxx

Before we nip over and check out what’s happening over at Papertake Weekly, it’s time to announce who the winner is from last week’s Gorgeous Giveaway, and I am so pleased to tell you that it is ….

…. drum roll please ……


…. you, Aunty Sue :)

     I would have been pleased for whoever won but I was especially pleased because Aunty Sue has been our GD over at Papertake and this is her last week. She was sad to go and I was sad to see her go, so I’m sure that this will have cheered her up. Please ping me an email chick and I'll pass on your details to the sweeties that are Mary & Andrea over at The Ribbon Girl and hugest of thanks to them for their kindness xxx

So onto my card for this week’s challenge which is a sketch …

sketch #69

.. this one here.

And …

.. this is what I did with it - yes I played a bit fast and loose with the old sentiment but hey ho!!

The image is one of the new CC Designs images called Flower Birgitta and I coloured her with these Copics -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R02, R20

Hair – E41, E43, E50, E81

The rest – B0000, B000, B00, B02, B05, G99, YG00, YG03, YG23

Those beautimous papers are from the new Nitwits FQB Petal Fresh collection.  I have to tell you that these are my fave papers at the mo because they are so clean and fresh. I can almost smell the fresh air on them lol.

Something else I am loving here too :)


These are Mulberry White Daisies from The Ribbon Girl.

I popped them on top of a couple of petals die cut from a Peony Petals die and then folded a piece of  16mm Aqua Open Weave Ribbon in half,  chopped the ends and stuck it behind.

The oval in the centre was cut from a Spellbinders Lattice Motifs die – I cut it from a piece of Petal Fresh Solids paper so that it matched perfectly.

The white crazy mesh fabric behind is also from The Ribbon Girl.

Other stuff I used was a Magnolia leaf and swirl die – just for a change lol and a border made using a Memory Box pearl lace die.

All the dies are of course available from Simon Says Stamp.

So that’s the card done peeps and I’ll be back tomorrow for my weekly trip across the pond.

But before I go, I have a little moment of self indulgence here cos I had to share this with you of my two little treasures….

A beautiful card, loving all the embellies and layers and the colours are fab.
I also adore that picture of your treasures. At first glance I thought it was a photo from a magazine or something - beautiful.
