It’s A Revelation!!!!

Picture 003 copy

It’s almost changed my life!!!!

Now before you all think I’ve completely lost the plot, I’ll just explain. I do love my PMs (you probably noticed) and I love my new Copics as well, but they do have a tendency to bleed all over the place especially the Copics.

But I think I’ve found the answer.

It’s this fab card from Craftwork Cards.

I LOVE IT. The pens just glide over it and there’s hardly any bleeding. Awesome or what. I was using Southfield card before this but I’ll never use anything else now. I know I’m probably the last to catch on but if you haven't already tried it and you are a PM or Copics user, you will not believe the results.

Anyhoos, it’s Tuesday and I am sooo late getting this on here cos it’s been one if them days again, but we’re here now and it’s Papertake Weekly time again. We have a nice open theme this week and you can do anything you want for our challenge. There is a $25 gift voucher from Heidi over at Simon Says Stamp up for grabs plus a gorgeous selection of DT to feast your eyes on.

And this is my card. I’ve used a Magnolia stamp I got from the NEC - how sweet – and the papers are MME from the loveliness that is Tracy at Dies To Die For

The ribbon was form a box of chocs – how could you chuck it out when it is so pretty – and there’s Martha’s finest again. The gorge white rose is from those lovely peeps over at Wild Orchid Crafts

The pearls and bling were from The Hobby House – ohhh so lovely. I have one of their templates which I am dying to use … maybe later in the week!!

And there’s a fair old bit of dimension as well which you can’t really see here but it is there, I promise you. So I am going to do something I have not done before and I’m entering it into this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge.

I’m on a real flyer today cos there is shed loads to do re work and then some bright spark decided to paint the kitchen. Yes it was me, I admit, so we have to start that shortly – grrr!!!!

So on that note, I’ll love you and leave you. See you soon and hugs to all xxxx
