Just To Say....

Hi everyone, here we are nearly out of May, can you believe it, where are these weeks going too!!.. hope you all had a fabulous bank holiday week-end, we have been painting and getting things ready so the estate agents can come and take some photo's of Debs house. I am happy and sad when I think about her moving, but it's a fabulous opportunity for her and Candice.... but I will miss seeing them every day.. although we do have skype, so I think that will be well used lol!!

Anyway onto today's challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly'.. Dawny has done a lovely sketch for us, but as always you can choose one of the older ones if you prefer, which are here!... I love using a sketch, as it's a good place to start especially if Mr Mojo has gone walk about lol!! Sorry about the pants photo, the colours are not really true as the ribbon is a lot lighter and co-ordinates much better in real life, I've been trying and trying to get a decent photo, but this is about the best... sorry!  I have used this gorgeous fairy stamp that I won at LOTV and she is called 'Petal' isn't she just lovely.  I think she can be used for so many different occasions.   I have finally got around to having a go with my inktense pencils, they are a lot different than my distress pens but I love the vibrant colours, but I need a lot of practise with them.  This is a very glittery card as I've used lots of star dust stickles and also some liquid pearls.  The papers are also from LOTV.

What I used
Image - Petal from LOTV
Papers - LOTV- Solid and Patterned - Promises by Mary Fran
Sentiment - LOTV - Hand Written Phrases
Flowers - Wild Orchids
Dies - Marrianne and Memory Box
