The sun has got his hat on! Hip hip hip hooray! yay
we've got sunshine! And according to the weatherman most of the UK has too. Lovely huh? I mean its nice but another 10 degrees would be even better - aren't I greedy? But any sun is better than no sun in my book.
So another challenge is on at Totally Gorjuss
This week its bingo! I spent hours and hours drawing up a chart, calculating all the mathematical permutations and all the eventualities.... er OK I drew up a chart and picked all my favourite crafting bits and bobs and filled them in! All you have to do is a line either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. I sort of chose diagonal..... lace, buttons and bling
... only bling
didn't look right on the paper so pearls are bling
aren't they? ;))
This is one of my all time favourite Magnolias - I ♥ her! Yes I know she's an old Christmas release but she fits in for so many other things too.
Of course she's been coloured with Copics
Dress YG 91, 93, 95, 97 and E 40, 41, 42 43
Hair E50 25 and 29
Skin E000, 00, 02, 11 and R20
Touches of Prisma pencil and shaded around the outline with French Grey 70% and 30%, rubbed out with Sansodor.
When I picked my bingo line I wasn't quite sure just how I was going to incorporate my buttons. I tried placing them on the card and they didn't look right. So I tried them in the other corner and still didn't like them. So I got my lace and glued it around the edge and crossed my fingers! Well gluing onto plastic.... but Crafters
Pick from Wild Orchid Crafts
did the trick! So I made these 'flowers' with my buttons and lace.
The papers are from Nitwits
, cherry blossoms.
This week TG
is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp
, the winner will receive $10 to spend online.
So now a few more holiday pics!
Sweet little peacock baby with his Momma.
. This is a 'zoo' of sorts. It was founded many years ago as an animal collection. Its a great place to visit. If you want lions and tigers don't go! They don't have them.
Plenty of other animals to see and the grounds are really pretty.
Isn't this swan odd looking? A bit like he's stuck his neck in black paint!
These are Siamangs
, a type of gibbon. This is this years baby playing with last years baby. They were so athletic! Mum and dad just sat on the ground chilling ;))
Some of the golf course we played had lakes. Lakes mean water birds! There were lots of them!
The tiny specks on the grass are coots. There were hundreds of them! They do a fine job of keeping the grass nicely cropped.
More of them, they'd all come out together.
Isn't this house pretty? I ♥ this house! I can remember seeing it years ago and thinking how lovely it was then.
This house is right on the promenade in La Baule
. Most of the properties along here are blocks of apartments but here and there are still some beautiful old houses. These two are lovely.
Now another card! I know what a treat! Well maybe treat isn't the right word.... I'm entering this spooky little witch into two challenges! I know two! The first is at Tando Creative
who have a spooky theme going on. The second is a DT
call at Creative Card Crew
which is also spooky!
This cute little witch is a Hambo
stamp. She's been coloured with Copics
and the papers are from MME.
So I hope you're till awake after my epic!
