Hi there sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today.
It’s that time of the week when we nip over to the jolly old US of A and catch up with our friends over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week we are having a game of Bingo and this ...
… is the card to use.
This week, the DT have all featured Memory Box products but of course you don't have to use them to join in. But we would love to see them used if you have any.
As always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …
… for one lucky winner to spend …
… this is what I did and I went for the central horizontal line.
I coloured her with the following Copics -
Skin – E0000, E000, E00, E11, R00, R02
Hair – E31, E33, E34, E35, E39, E50
The rest – E43, E50, R85, RV0000, RV000, RV00
And I added some glitter, as I usually do :)
The image is stamped onto a Spellbinders Floral Ovals Nestabilities die btw.
The paper is from the Bazzill AVALON 6 x 6 Paper Multi-Pack – love these papers because they have a nice texture to them and the colours are so clean and bright.
The border is made from a Memory Box pearl lace die and the sentiment is printed onto SAFMAT Self-Adhesive Printing Film. IRL you cannot see where it is stuck down but in pics, it always seems to show up.
I blame the photographer personally!!!!
And speaking of which, sod’s law that this pic isn’t exactly fab, but I hope that you can see what I’ve done here.
The beautimous flowers are Prima Gillian Silk Flowers - Raspberry with Glitter and they are almost too pretty to use - this photo does not do them justice.
You can maybe see them a bit better on this one - they really are some of the prettiest blooms I’ve seen (and they don’t break the bank either!!)..
I also used a Memory Box Delicate Fern die and chopped bits off of it and used it as foliage.
It’s a bit of a plain card inasmuch as it isn't exactly laden down on the embellies or papers front. But I really like how the little arrangement turned out and think that if I added any more, it would have spoiled it.
Right on that note, I’m off to get some more work done and then we are off to see Emma and the dinks – they are back from Spain – hurrrrayyyyyyyyy :)))) I cannot wait to give them both the biggest hugs and squishes ever. R has been playing it down and saying that he has enjoyed the peace and quiet but he admitted last night that he has missed them dreadfully, especially our Kyla who follows him around everywhere he goes.
They have a very special bond those two and he didn't fool me for one second with all his bluster. So before long it will be back to Dancing Queen on the Wii, playing shop and school – she is always the teacher - and her latest which is playing Next Directory!! You have to order things from her and she finds them in the catalogue!! She does have lots of toys to play with (honestly she does!!!) but this is her latest craze!!
Ohh I cannot wait !!
See you soon if not sooner and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
