Snowy & Sparkly & A Gorgeous Giveaway Too :)


Picture 006 copy

Hi there lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today :)

It’s time to sprinkle a bit of fairy dust and nip over and catch up with the Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge and today it’s all about

Spots Or Stripes

I couldn't decide which one to do, so I did both …..

 Picture 001 copy 

… as you can see!!!

The stripes are on the paper and the spots are on the prezzie on the image.

And speaking of the image ….

Picture 005 copy

… here it is in close up.

It is of course the super sweet Delivering The Presents and I coloured it with the following Copics -

Skin – E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R20

The rest -

B0000, B000, B00, B02, B93, B95. B97, E31, E33, E34, E35, E39, E50, E79. E81, W00, W1, W3

The papers I used today are from this ……


Petal Fresh 8x8 paper pad from Lili Of The Valley– it’s gorgeous – and the card base is a Craftwork Cards  Elegant Square card blank.

I am loving these at the mo!!!

Some Ribbon Girl pretties here.

The bow was made using Royal Peacock Seam Binding and I made a little topper using a 6mm White Pearl Flat Back which I glued onto a Diamante 11mm Round Spacer. There’s also some Cream Jute Mesh Ribbon and a couple of  White Hat Pins.

The sentiment is from one of the new release and it’s set 35, Christmas Handwritten Phrases.

So that’s the old card and now it’s time for my monthly gorgeous giveaway which has been very kindly donated by my lovely friends Mary & Andrea at The Ribbon Girl and this month we have a beautiful …..


…. Blue Mini Ribbon Kit to give to one lucky winner.

If you fancy getting your mitts on that lovely kit, then all you have to do is to leave me a comment and then pop your name with Mr Linky. It’s that easy peasy :) I’ll announce the winner next Tuesday when I do me PTW card.

Right I better go. I am just taking Kyla to do a bit of shopping and then if we get time we are nipping in to see my aunt who is in hospital.

Have a fab day and I’ll see you soon if not sooner.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
