A Little Busy Bee :)

Hi there sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today.

Well be careful what you wish for because today we have ……… light!!! It’s a cold one but full of nice clean white light – woohoooo. Yesterday was so miserable and this gloom really does get you down (or is that just me??)

Anyway, without further ado, let’s nip across the pond and join our friends over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge and this week our theme is

Black/White + a Splash of Colour

The DT are using products from C.C Designs this week -  you don't have to of course, but if you have them we would love to see them :)

As always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …

… for one lucky winner to spend …

…  CC Designs  Honey Bee-Trice and she is so cute – even if she does have a bit of glitter in her hair (ooops!!)

Once again I gave her the Tim Holts Distress Inks  treatment (in answer to Marianne’s question, the inks I use are the pads chick which I dab onto some acetate and pick up the ink from that – hope that helps).

These are the colours I used -

Skin - Tattered Rose & Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Worn Lipstick & Tea Dye
Hair – Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Wild Honey & Rusty Hinge 
Clothes – Pumice Stone, Black Soot, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade & Wild Honey

I’m still practising with them lol!!!
I wonder if I will ever go back to
Copics now?

The papers are Bo Bunny Crush and Bazzill AVALON 6 x 6 Paper Multi-Pack

And that’s the card all done peeps.

If you get a sec, nip over and have a look at the DT cardage – wowwza  :)

Thea’s little nose is looking much better and she seems non the worse for her ordeal – I just had to go and see them last night as I was worried about her (yes I know I am a soppy old sod but they are my world those kids). . She was all pink and rosy from her bath and smelled gorgeous – oooh I could eat her!!!

Kyla is getting super excited about tomorrow as it is her birthday and she will be 7. I say it every year but I still cannot believe we have her. That child was a gift to us I am sure, and she has brought us so much joy. Well they are all gifts really  and it really is a shame that not all parents see them like that. It makes me so sad when I see them giving their kids a slap for the most silly things (I saw one do that once because her little one of about 2 had dropped her sweeties – errr what????). She is having her party this Sunday – 10 pin bowling with 19 of her little pals – ands we are just having a little birthday tea on the actual day. She doesn’t know it yet but on Friday, Em is getting her from school and they are going straight to Manchester to see The Lion King. We’re going in Feb so she can give me all the info :)

Right I better go. I'm typing this early and I haven't had me brekkie yet so the old tum is starting to rumble. Have a fab day and I’ll see you soon as soon.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Love your card! Such a cute image, and I love how the hearts add so much texture to this card!

Glad Thea is ok Dawn. My youngest got bitten on the forehead a few mths ago at preschool, he was so upset and shocked that someone had wanted to hurt him, it so upsetting seeing them physically hurt but when it hurts their feelings too it just so sad. Wish we could wrap them in cotton wool and protect them from everything.

Happy birthday to Kyla, hope she has a fab time seeing the lion king (we have booked it see it in August).

You card is fab as ever, love the colours. And that cute little image.

Hugs Kelly
