Morning lovely peeps and hope you are all OK and having a nice weekend. At least the weather seems to have behaved itself and the sun is actually out bright and early here today. Not sure if it will last though?
As it’s the first Sunday of the month, it’s time to catch up with what’s happening over at
and our challenge this month is actually a bingo challenge ….
… and here is your card :)
There are 2 fab prizes up for grabs.
Firstly, a £10 gift voucher to spend in The Ribbon Girl Shop …
and there’s also a Lili of The Valley stamp of your choice as well :) …..
2 verrry good reasons indeedy to play along don’tchya think sweet peeps xxx
So, what did el Piggy do?
Well I know that nobody likes a show off, but …
… I did ‘em all!!!
I sort of set myself a challenge to see if I could and I think I just about managed it!!!
Skin – E0000, E000, E00, E11, R00, R02
Hair – E15, E31, E33, E34, E35, E29
The rest – N0, C2, E50, RV0000, RV000, RV00, R85, Y21. Y28, Y38
Just for a change I’ve made a shopping list at the end of the post with pics of all the products I’ve used and they are all hyperlinked to take you straight to the right places :)
In the meantime, here’s some more pics for you.
A button, bow, twine and charm.
2 pretty blooms and a die cut which I chopped down!!
Lace, ribbon and some pretty pink sugar and spice pearls
A perfect sentiment and a couple more die cuts!!!
I know these are ferns but I think they look fab for Christmas cards as well.
So that’s what I did.
I wasn’t too unpleased with how it turned out but I wish I could take better pics when I do a base card other than the usual 6 x 6. I never seem to get it quite right!!!
Here’s what I used -
From The Ribbon Girl -
From Nitwits -
From Which Craft -
From Simon Says Stamp -
Did you all watch the Olympics last night? I tell you, I was nearly hoarse from cheering on Mo Farrah - that last lap was beyond exciting. Makes you proud to be British and isn’t Mo a nice man. Hugest congrats to our athletes – what an amazing night it was.
It topped off a very nice day yesterday.
I’d gotten Richard a driving experience day for his birthday last year so we went there first, and he really enjoyed it but at least we know now that if we ever win the lottery, we won’t be buying a Ferrari (unless Tom Selleck – drool drool - is included and then I will have to have one just to look at) !! Apparently they are tricky beggars to drive – funny gears by all accounts!! Then we went out for a nice late-ish lunch before getting back home and just flopping on the couch and watching the telly with a Bulmer's Red Cider (Rich, who doesn't normally drink ) and a glass of chilled vino (moi, who normally does)!!.
Not long now before my little sausages are back and I am missing them so much, and Emma sent me this pic of the baby yesterday in her sun hat …..
…awww bless her little heart.
One eye looks like it’s going to close but she still looks sweet (I know I am biased). She’s nearly 10 weeks old now and she’s all chubby cheeks and hair (you can’t see the hair cos of the hat but she hasn't lost any). And Kyla is such a lovely big sister to her – there has been no jealousy and considering she has been on her own for 6 years she has coped really well with the little interloper. I am so proud of that kid.
So on that doting soppy granny note, I am off to finish off the colouring for the next lot of LOTV sneak peeks ( they are just adorable) and also finish the prep for my classes at the LOTV open day next Saturday.
Enjoy your Sunday whatever you are doing and if you get a sec, nip over and check out the challenge because the DT cards are amazing. I am so honoured to work with such talent, I can tell you.
I’ll see you in the week so until then, huggiest of hugs to all xxx
