A Sharing Post :)

Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK today.

It’s time for a bit of Papertake Weekly and this week it’s all about

Spots n Stripes

Quite self explan really – we just want to see, well, spots ‘n’ stripes lol!!!

There is a fab prize from the sweetness that is Katharina from Whiff of Joy plus we have a fab brand new DT member to introduce so if you get a sec, nip over for a nosey :)

So ….

… here’s what I did.

The image is one of the fabulous mini masterpieces (this is Mini Masterpieces 25) - all the work has been done so all I needed to do was add a bit of bling here and there.

The papers are from …..

LOTV New Launch

… these awesome paper pads which will be on sale tomorrow, woohoooooo.

If you went along to the Open Day you will probably have bagged yourselves some because they are completely irresistible. I used papers from the Bonnets & Bowties and Promises pads.

Some yummies from my fave place for all things pretty –  The Ribbon Girl, natch!!

A bow made with 25mm Pink No 57 Small Check Gingham, and a lavender small polka dot spotty button tied with candy pink divine bakers twine. You can also just about see the white tulle which I tucked behind the image :)

The sentiment is from the Lili of The Valley Sentiment Set 29 , the ribbon  is 25mm Pink No 2 Berisford Satin ribbon and I used some Sugar and Spice self adhesive pearls.

There’s also a bit of Tilda Lace and Magnolia leaf and swirl die malarky going on :)

So that’s my bit done and now it’s time for Miss Kyla’s card for the …

Simon Says Children’s Challenge. She is also entering it into the Little Hands Challenge as well :)

She would normally have been one of our mini designers but she wasn't about when I needed her to do a card and as her crafting stuff is all at mine (wonder why!!) she wasn't able to get one done in time.

But she wanted to join in and this …

.. . is what she did, bless her.

She coloured Tilda with her new felt pens and some of my Pro Markers  (you didn't think I'd let her loose with my Copics did you lol) and I kind of lost track of which colours she used. There are quite a few anyway, and don’t you just love her rosy cheeks!!

She was also very definite that she wanted Tilda to have twinkly hair – chip off the old block fo sho -  so she gave her a Glamour Dust shampoo!!! I have no clue what the paper is – I don't even know whereabouts  in my craft room she nicked it from!! I do know though that the flowers were part of a pack I got from Purple Butterfly Crafts. I can really see a difference from the one she did last year and her colouring is coming on a treat. She also seems to be adopting the less is more thing now as well.

CAS – that’s ma girl!!!!

Right I better go. I’ll be back tomoz with my weekly trip across the water but until then,  have a fab night and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
