Hi there sweet peeps and hope that you are all OK today.
It's a cold, wet, grey and gloomy day here in Chester - very depressing!!
I've been struggling to take decent photographs because the light here is practically non-existent, so much so that I've had to have the house lights on all day, but never mind.
These things are sent to try us I guess - roll on spring , that's all I can say.
So it's that time of the week when we nip over and check out what's happening with the Papertake Weekly gang and this week our theme is
Happy New ….
So what you need to do is to create a card or project such a new house, new baby, new job etc etc or you can use something new from your stash if you want .
We are sponsored today by the sweetness that is Katarina over at Whiff of Joy, and of course there are some beautimous DT cards to feast your eyes on, so nip over and check it all out if you get a minute :)
And this is what I did.
I used one of the new Tildas from the latest collection and I coloured her with Sir Tim's finest- oh I am so loving these inks peeps!!!
These are the colours that I used-
Skin - Tattered Rose & Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Worn Lipstick & Tea Dye
Hair – Antique Linen & Walnut Stain
Clothes - Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Barn Door & Fired Brick
I am starting to get the effect that I want from these inks - still not perfect but I'm getting there and practice does make perfect after all. And I am loving the practise!!!!
The papers are from the fabulous Nitwits and are from the FQB Glad Tidings Collection - I love blue and red together. And they aren't just for Christmas either!!
And there's loads of yummy new stuff on the website - must pay a little visit shortly lol!!!
A simple little arrangement!!!
So that's the card done for today peeps.
Have you been watching Dancing on Ice?
I'm quite shocked that Pammy's gone so soon I thought she was very graceful and had potential, but what do I know? I have to say that I can't fathom out Ashley Roberts’ train of thought when she's giving her critique!!! It's quite inconsistent to say the least. And I do hope Jason starts to be a bit nicer, the sneering, supercilious swine - I don't like it when he's nasty just for the hell of it because I'm sure they're all trying the best.
Poor Thea came home from nursery last night sporting a huge bite mark on her face. One of the other babies went into Hannibal Lecter mode and tried to bite her nose off – maybe they hadn’t fed them lol!!! Poor little thing - I do hope it doesn't put off going. I really don't like biting - I was very lucky that neither of mine were biters. I'm not sure how I would deal with it to be honest.
Anyway on that note I better go.
I will be back tomorrow but I'll leave you with a little sneaky peekie …..
… and hopefully a better quality picture. Now all we need is some nice light!!
Have a fab evening and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
