Hello to You All

How are you keeping?  Just how cold is it - brrrrr - come on sunshine it's time for you to make an appearance - pretty please ;o)

"Hello" to my new follower - Christine Collins - thank you Christine for choosing to follow me, I am very flattered and really appreciate it.

It's Saturday again and its challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss and this weeks challenge is "Something Borrowed" and our generous sponsor is the one and only Ribbon Girl.

So, if you want to be in with a chance to win £10 to spend in the on-line store then get your entries in over at Totally Gorjuss and as always don't forget to check out what the lovely DT ladies have made for your inspiration.

Here is my little creation for the challenge:

Now, I can see some of you looking at it and thinking "what's borrowed about that" ;o) well, the story goes I saw someone making something similar to hold chocolates in but the card was sideways on if you know what I mean - or maybe not - heh heh and I wanted to create something to enter the Cardmaking & Papercraft "Cardmaker of the Year" competition back in 2010 and this is what I came up with for the Lili of the Valley section (apologies for the pictures, but I did take these three years ago).

So you see, the idea was "borrowed" ;o)  a little tenuous I know, but I'm sticking with it.

Wow, so much waffle - sorry.  The recipe for the little tissue pack holder thingy (can't think of a name for it!), is:

Stamp:  Lili of the Valley - Get Well Bunny (I so love this little bunny)
Digi Papers:  Pink Petticoat - Little Gingham and Doodle Dots
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts

The image was coloured with Copics:

Bunny:  C3 C2 C1 C0 C00 / R20 (feet and nose)
Grapes:  V09 V17 V25
Medicine Bottle:  YR08 YR04 YR02

I used V01 and the Blender Pen to outline the image

Here is a picture of what the back looked like:

And there you have it.

I hope you all have a good weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.
