Ribbons & Pearls with Creatalicious

Hello there, and thank you so much for visiting me today, hope you had a great weekend. When we moved into our house we were lucky enough to inherit a shed/workshop that a previous owner had built, it is 8ft by 10ft so really roomy but it is really close to the house so not only does it obscure the light into my kitchen, but it is also slap-bang in the middle of what could be a superb patio area. So we have decided to dismantle it and move it to a more suitable spot and that is pretty much what we've all been up too....its a slow, steady process as we don't want my hubby to overdo it, but we'll get there!

its time for a new Creatalicious Challenge, and this time its all about the Ribbons and Pearls..............

 our lovely sponsors are:

Di's digi stamps
who's offering a $12 voucher to the winner


is offering 2 images of winner's choice

our lovely friends at Dr Digi, also provided some amazing images for our DT to play with, I chose "Blunderwoman" (which does bring back childhood memories of Bella Emberg in a very similar costume, lol) now I have to say that as an image this was a bit of a departure from the cute-ness that I would normally go far, but it was a fab image to colour nonetheless (even her ample bosom!)

this card also features:
  • image coloured with promarkers
  • paper was an old download, with colour changed to co-ordinate
  • sentiment created on serif
  • Xcut star die
  • ribbon and pearls from stash (pearls coloured with promarkers to co-ordinate)

My fellow Creatalicious teamies have also made some stunning cards for this challenge, so we hope you will hop on over and join in!

One happy little step-granny!

In my last post, a few days ago, I mentioned that I was just back from a trip to Scotland to meet a new member of our family.......and this little lady is our beautiful Grand-daughter Erin, who arrived on 5th May
obviously, I couldn't wait to get my hand on her!

 and my hubby considered it his Grandad-ly duty to buy the biggest bear in Toys r us
 you do forget how tiny these little ones are!

changing the subject slightly, but I have never seen bluebells this shade before!
spotted this in my step-daughters garden, not to sure what it is - but I want one!
Any suggestions?
 have a lovely weekend all!
