Quelle Surprise, A New card & A Sneaky Peekie!!!!



Hi there me darlins and it's another wet and windy day isn't it :(
Hope everyone is OK and not suffering too much with this awful weather.

So today I have a new card for you - wooop wooop!!!

Over at Papertake Weekly it's time for a new sketchie ....

.. and this is the very chap here.
Of course, you can fiddle about with it to your hearts content and as long as we can still see the sketch in there somewhere, then all is fine and dandy-o !!

But if you don't want to use this one then you can choose any Papertake sketch cos it's

Sketchie Free For All

We are sponsored by the sweetness that is Heidi  and the one and only and utterly fab

Simon Says Stamp

Simon Says Stamp

There is a $20 voucher up for grabs for you to spend in Heidi’s shop , yayyyyy :)

So what did I do then?


Well I went with the new sketch and I stayed pretty true to it which isn't like me!!!

I used one of the brand new soon to be released Lili of The Valley images and this is

My Favourite Friends

Is this seriously sweet or what!!!


I coloured her in using the following Copics -

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair - E31, E34, E35, E39, E50
Clothes - RV000, RV10, RV34, RV69
Teddies - E31, E34, E35, E50
Chest - E30,  E41, E42, E43, E47, E50

And I've edged the image with Glamour Dust


The papers are all from the very delish Always & Forever paper pad and once again I've made a little dimensional flower complete with fringed middle, in an attempt to justify the silly dosho I paid for those fringing scissors, which I've now used twice!!!!!!

The sentiment is from the ever so useful and really pretty Sentiments to Fit Scroll set (I LOVE that font).


This is typical me, I just cannot help fiddling!!

I scrunched up some some Ivory Jute Mesh Ribbon then stuck on a double bow made from 15mm Mermaid Pale Pink ribbon, then I wrapped  a little bit of 25mm Pink Velvet Lace around the middle, all from The Ribbon Girl. :)

I also added some punched leaves made with  Magnolia Spruce Twig dies



So that's me all done for today and if you get a sec,  do nip over and check out the challenge. We also have a GDT call for the next three months and we would love to have you join us :)

And while it's in this sieve of a brain of mine, make a date for next Tuesday at 11am as we are back on Create and Craft, woop woop (lots of woop woops today!!).

Take care and see you soon as soon and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Fabulous card, love all the embellies and your glamour dust round the image is a nice touch. Great news you're back on C&C. Have you recovered from the last one? Will put it in the diary. Debra x
