I used the super adorable LOTV stamp, Blossom. I absolutely love her! I coloured her up and then nestied her out!! 

Pearls was easy, splodged some self adhesive ones from my stash on and then......pins....(...pins?!!! omg...small scream from Lou..never use them...luckily saved from argghhhhhness by the gorgeous Tracy at Dies to Die for and her inkido heart pins stock..phew!!!!!) you can just see it nestled into the little fir cones and flower splodge in the bottom left of the card. I glued some teeny beads to the sharp end of it to hide the ouchy bit!! daft Lou.....!!!!!

Right, I am off to try and make orange curd now to make some jaffa cake inspired choccy cupcakes for Mo and Scott!...it could turn out badly but its worth a go!!!!

Tiddly Inks challenge 134......Pastels...

Image- Bathing Beauty from Tiddly Inks.
Morning peeps!!
Its time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and this week its....

( so think pastel colours on your papers and tiddlies!!)

I went CAS and made a card for a dear friend who is having a squidge of a tough time at the moment :( she always calls me her lifesaver so I had to squeesh that sentiment in there somehow!! he he he!!!

I printed Bathing Beauty straight onto my card blank and then gave her a good old colour on some pastels blues and yellows along with her pinky skin tones. I love how it came out. Sometimes a little bit of simples says it just perfectly without all the Lou froo-froo!!

I'll be back in a little while with my Passion for Promarkers new challenge make!
