Game, Set & Match :)

Good morning sweet peeps and a very Happy Sunday to everyone.

Its time for our monthly card challenge over at The Ribbon Girl blog and our theme is



As usual our card Challenge is sponsored by our lovely friends at Lili Of The Valley and The Ribbon Girl and we have 2 fab prizes up for grabs -



So what did I do then?

Well, I thought, what could be more summery than tennis?
Very topical, and I will be glued to the telly for the final later.

So …

… here’s my card.

I used Tennis Tilda and I coloured her with these Copics -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair – E31, E35, E39, E50
The rest – B0000, B000, B00, B05, G99, YG00, YG03, YG95

I’ve outlined the image with glitter and added some to the lacy bits of her dress and the racquet strings.

The gorgeous papers are Shabby Shack from Lili of The Valley – I love the clean crisp look of these papers.

A beautiful bow made with 32mm Celery Green Pure Silk Ribbon – this stuff is pure gorge.
You can also see the
38mm 'Phoebe' White Guipure Lace, Apple Green Tiny Ric Rac5mm Mixed Greens Self Adhesive Pearls,  and I chopped up some White Rose/Pearl Organza Ribbon to top the bow.

I also added some of it to these …

… flowers here.
I quite like the way they look on their own  : )

I made some little tails for the flowers using the ric rac.

Here, I gathered up some 32mm 'Anne' Antique White Lace and glued it to the back of this panel.
All these beautiful goodies are of course from Mary over at
The Ribbon Girl

The sentiment is from the Lili of The Valley Sentiments to Fit Scroll set which I adore – you probably noticed lol!!!

I can almost smell the grass with those pretty green colours.

So that’s the old card done for today.

I’m so looking forward to the tennis later even though we won’t be having our usual food fest (I usually do us a yummy picnic style late lunch to go with our Pimms and strawbs and cream). We will be having the strawbs but it will be low fat cream this year. Not that I mind cos I am sticking to the diet this time. I tell you peeps, I have found some lovely recipes on the SW website and we have actually been eating really well AND losing weight.
It's win win fo sho!!!

I don’t mind who wins today although I do have a soft spot for old Rog the Dogdge.
But it’s the kind of match I enjoy best when you are non – partisan

Right on the note I’m off.
It’s our monthly card club tomorrow and I’m in the middle of doing the prep.
Enjoy your day whatever you are doing and love and hugs to all xxx

This is a gorgeous Tilda and the colouring stunning. So summery.
Hope you enjoyed the tennis would have been a match to watch but far too late for me to stay up for. Doubt if there will be any replays on TV either, groan.
