Once I ‘Poppy’, I Can’t Stoppy :)

Picture 007 copy

That’s poppy not poopy peeps (fab alliteration!!)  and  please excuse the sad and corny post title – sometimes I cannot help meself  (can you tell it’s Friday then?).

Or maybe it’s the title of this week’s Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge which is

Going Dotty

(mmm, that could explain a lot)

Well of course, I do love me spotty papers so this was right up my street.

And we are sponsored by

a7 jacobi[3]_thumb

and they are offering a fantastic prize of a voucher of : 20.00 Euro to spend in their store :)

So out came my fave spotty dotty papers and ….

.. this is what I did.

I decided to use  one of my H&S images (I think I might love them even more that Magnolias to be honest) and I coloured them with these Copics -

Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20

Hair: E42, E50, E51

Clothes etc:  BV0000, BV00, BV02, E0000, E00, E31, E33, E35, E51

The papers are of course Pink Petticoat and I used Doodle Dots and Lots Of Dots in Mocha.

I also gave Lord Tim’s Scallops a day off (no Sue, I haven’t put it away yet, honest, and FAB to chat the other day xxx).  Instead I used my Tilda Lace die which I love just as much and you can get them from Tracy at Dies To Die For.

So now the post title makes sense (well sort of) because these are the poppies. I think they are just about the prettiest flowers and the colours are just drool-worthy. 

Today I used the lilac ones …


… these ones here, plus a few other Wild Orchid Crafts blooms.

And of course some WOC  vintage seam binding in light mink and some self adhesive pearls  :)

The sentiment is  from the Pink Petticoat Girly Curly Sentiments Collection.


Now  talking of PP, I have some quite exciting news to share ..

Most of you will know that in this month’s Quick Cards Made easy mag, there is a free Pink Petticoat  paper pack.


Also, the mag features Papertake’s  very own Steph and Katina  (I feel like a proud mum xxx) PLUS  everyone’s fave Mummy Fairy  (and she‘s my JM teamie as well and of course I just love her to bits xxx) and that is the sweetness that is Jacquie.

Now that’s 4 good reasons to buy the mag :) 

It will be in the shops on Tuesday - although if you're a subscriber, you've probably already got yours, stroked them and LOVE them.

But there’s more…

Because next week we are celebrating,  and you are all invited to the very first

Pink Petticoat Blog Hop.

It's an Inspiration Blog Hop and to make it extra special, it's a prize-winning Blog Hop too!

So in Liz’s own words ….


Myself and the Creative Team have been busy creating for you using the designs from the 'Vintage Rose' Paper Pack. And we hope to inspire you by sharing our ideas with you on our blogs.


Tuesday 1st February and Wednesday 2nd February 2011.


A Limited Edition, Pink Petticoat 'Vintage Rose' Paper Pack. And we each have 2 to give away : )


Starting here on Tuesday at 10am, and again on Wednesday at 10am, simply follow the links to visit each one of our blogs in turn.  There will be three links to follow, and three 'somethings' to see on Tuesday and three more links to follow and three more 'somethings' to see on Wednesday.

When you see a 'something' that inspires you, leave a comment to tell us what you LOVE most about the design and you'll automatically be entered into the draw to win a Paper Pack from that designer. If you're inspired by all six designers, then you may leave a comment on every design ... and you'll have more chances
to win.


We will each randomly choose two winners from the comments you leave for us and we will announce our winners on our blogs on Thursday 3rd February. And those lucky winners will receive one of the Paper Packs.
So if you leave a comment on a card, don't forget to pop back to their blog to see if you've won!

And ….


... if you'd like 'Vintage Rose' in digital as well, and haven't already added it to your your Pink Petticoat Collection, it'll be in in the Boutique at it's Introductory Price of just £5.99 until the end of February. That's a saving of £2.00.

And another nice little treat : )

So there you have it lovely peeps, and thank you for staying with me today cos it’s quite a loooooooooong post but I just had to share :)

So on that note I’ll say toodle pip and see you soon.

Have a fab weekend and hugs to all xxx
