Another Sneaky Peekie Papertake Weekly


Hi sweet peeps and sorry for the repetitive post title.
I do like it though and in the absence of anything better, I thought I’d drag it out once more!!

So it’s time for another

Anything Goes

challenge over at Papertake Weekly and this month our optional extra is to not use any patterned paper.
Oh that scared the bejayzus out of me I can tell you, and being lily livered,  I didn’t go for that one!!

But I did go for something lily – I used another of the soon to be released birthday fairies and this one ….

… is called Flower Dance (she is soooo sweet).

I coloured her with the following Copics –

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair – E31, E33, E34, E35, E39
The rest – BG0000, BG01, BG05, BG10, BG49, BV0000, BV000, BV01, BV02, BV04, BV17, Y15, Y17, YG0000, YG00, YG03, YG95, YR00, YR02, YR61

I outlined her with Glamour Dust, like you do : )

The papers are from Promises, Bonnets & Bowties and Promises Solids paper pads – what’s not to love about lilac : )


I made the blooms using the Promises Solids papers and some yellow card.
The die is a Sissix Flower Layers & Leaf die and the leaves were done with a Memory Box Lavish Branch die.
No prizes for guessing  what I made the lacy border with (thank you kindly, Miss Martha Stewart!!).


A pretty bow made with some 38mm Lavender/White Spot Organza Ribbon and topped with one of Mary’s 14mm Acrylic Gems which I coloured with a Copic to match the card. You can just make out a strip of 15mm Heliotrope No 7 Berisford Satin Ribbon on the vertical element. All available of course from The Ribbon Girl.



It’s a nice clean and fresh card – just the sort I like really, so I was quite pleased with how it turned out.

You probably can’t tell from the pics but I’m using a lot of 8x8 card bases lately.
I’ve discovered that they are perfect for making different sized card bases and the world is your lobster re the shape and also they work well with the LOTV 8x8 paper pads.

Right I’m off so I’ll see you back here as soon as soon.

But before I go, don’t forget that it’s our ….


... this weekend.
Please do let me know if you’re going to pop along and do come and say howdy.
We’ve got lots of lovely things going on and it
promises to be the most amazing day.
To say that we are excited is probably the understatement of the year!!

Enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
