Oodles of Blooms & A FABULOUS Gorgeous Giveaway :)



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

It's that time of the week when we nip over and check out what's happening at Papertake Weekly and this week we are

Hot Hot Hot

Now you can have this as a colour challenge if you want to  ie use warm colours such as red, orange, yellow, hot pink etc or you may have a different interpretation!!

There's a £10 voucher up for grabs from our very own Mary & Andrea over at

The Ribbon Girl

so do nip and check it out of you get a sec :)
We also have another GDT call out so if you'd like to join  us for 3 months, check it all out over at the challenge.

So .....


... this is what I did.

I used one of the new Set 64 - Quotables - Life's Journey and just added a bucketful of beautiful bloomage. And if you've come here from the challenge blog, your eyes aren't deceiving you because I changed the fuzzy bit on the edit here.

I liked it better in white!!

I have to tell you as well that IRL there isn't a grey blob on the card - for some reason it has just appeared when I was editing.
All very weird if you ask me!!!



The butterfly was made from LOTV Set 66 - Grunge Elements - I chopped off it's bits and replaced them with some hot pink wire - poor old butterfly :) I must be in chopping off mode today cos I have just had all my hair chopped off as well. I went from medium length to rather short in under an hour. I LOVE it and it's much cooler!!

The blooms are from The Ribbon Girl and include -

Mixed Dahlia Raspberry Delight

Floribunda Roses Raspberry Ripple

Rolled Paper Roses Ruby Red Kort & Godt

Carnation Deep Pink

Beaded Berries Pink/Pale PinkStarburst Stamen Pink

I also added a few pink pearls on wire that were in my stash and  a few leaves made from a  Martha Stewart FROND LEAF Craft Punch.




I ran a Copic over some 75cm Ivory Jute  -it works so well and you can coordinate it to match your card.

And I .....


.... made a fish tail from some 25mm Shocking Pink No 72 Berisford Satin



So that's the old card done me darlins and now for my monthly gorgeous giveaway which is as always sponsored by the sweeties that are Mary & Andrea.

  And check out  what’s up for grabs peeps ....


... so if you want to get your mitts on this, then all you have to do is leave your name with old Inlinz andI'll announce the winner next  Tuesday.

Can I also say thank you before I go to those lovely peeps who have come over to the Bloglovin thing as well. Thank you for staying with me chicksies  - I so appreciate it and I will have some followers candy very shortly for you.

Right I'm off to do some work.

Have the best day and I'll see you tomorrow for a transatlantic jaunt across the water.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
