I am positively bubbling with excitement. I am doing a very happy dance as I speak (well type actually and it’s making it a little difficult) I have some unbelievable news. I AM A CUTIE PIE. Yes, I have been asked to join the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog Design Team! Oh my word what an honour and a privilege not to mention a shock. I have only had my blog since 3rd June this year so I am amazed and chuffed beyond words. I want to thank the ladies for giving me this fab opportunity and I will endeavour not to let them down.
So, if I can keep my excitement levels to a minimum (not easy, keep making unattractive squealing noises), I will show my card for today. And it is a big thank you to the Cutie Pie’s for giving me a chance.
I call it… well.. Thank You
I used a gorgeous scene from Elisabeth Bell and ventured into brand new territory for me. I coloured the image with Sakura Design Pencils. I have seen so many amazing inspirational pencil creations in Blogland so I just had to give it a go. I was a little apprehensive about using this medium as I have not worked with pencils since I was young, in fact I still have a 36 piece collection of watercolour pencils given to me by my parents for my 12th birthday, and they are still going strong! I think the image came out OK, but when you are used to the blending properties of alcohol markers it does seem a bit strange using something else. That said I really enjoyed playing with them and shall be doing so again.
|I love those cute toys. I hope that dog's not trying to eat that butterfly!|
My DP’s are from my ever faithful Brenda Pinnock 12 x 12” pad and I used Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 and A2 Bracket Borders 1 to frame the design. I used my new B.F.F. Martha Stewart air dry clay and moulds to make my ebellies. I love, love, love this stuff, so nice and easy to work with.
For my sentiment I used the fab Clearly Besotted Stamps Basic Banners set, which I won after entering the Passion for Promarkers challenge last week. They stamp a dream.
|Says it all really.|
So there it is, a huge THANK YOU to the lovely Cutie ladies for allowing me on board.
Smiling always (can’t stop, I’m a Cutie Pie! Yippee!)
