Well its been a good day and a bad day today - Soph , and me and a friend  went shopping today to get some curtains for her new flat .. She was really excited ! The curtains were not in stock and so we had to ordered them ... as we were stood there at the counter calvin phoned , i had to quickly say " i phone you back " but then couldnt get a signal ... about 1 hr later i managed to get hold of him Poor love had been on a walk in the forest and twisted his ankle so bad that he phoned me to stop himself from passing out ... and i had quickly said  ( not realising )- hold on , il phone you back .... !!! when i did get hold of him he was on his  way  Accident and Emergancy . .. 

He is ok but its badly sprained .. poor love is at home resting up so we all need to send him healing vibes ... im trying not laugh ...sorry but my calvin is sooooo accident prone its untrue ... i call him the real life Frank Spencer heeeeheee... nothing surprises me with that fella !

Whiff of Joy GDT set .. sending love ...

Well i have alittle something to share ... for the next few months i shall be Guest dt member for the fabulous whiff of Joy ! So without further a do i shall introduce you to my latest set ...

This set is really bright and cheerful .. I used copics and prisma pencils - you can really tell the difference can't you - so much more depth to the colouring .
I've used Melinda blowing kisses for this card and team her up with a gorgeous mix of old K and Co papers and the rose paper is from the Girls paperie range - ive muted the roses down with a light prisma pencil.-
It's such a shame that you can't see the detailed flowers  as well as in real , as i have dipped them in embossing powder and give them a dose of glittery stickles . It gives them almost soft fuffy look
. The sentiment is whiff of Joy and is suppose to match up with a die - however me being me  ive  used  the die in a different way and folded it in half for the tab.
and now for the matching dolly..

She has little hearts on her dress and hat... and is holding a large heart with flowers on .

I'd like to enter this card and fimo set into these challenges.
Simply create - things with wings
stamp something -pretty papers
Ces challenge lots of sparkly flowers

This set is nowavailable on ebay.

This is one of the new Images from Lili of the Valley , shes called Daisy chain and is sooo 
gorgeous , shes playing with her teddy and making him daisy chains , heheeee 
I could not get the song " just wanna be your teddy bear " out of my head when i saw this gorgeous image.

I've patchworked the fimo into a little table cloth that matches the patchwork prima  paper on the card.
Oh my look at teddy , he is soooooooo longing for that last piece of delicious chocolate strawberry cake !
The cream on the cake was  actually piped on lol ...

I've used Prima papers "madeleine " and a gorgeous trinket  from charmed cards , 
the gingham bias  is from Creative Treasures ,
the metal corners ive stolen from calvins crafty stash he left here ( shhhhhhh) lol .
Oh and i nicked some of his fimo too .Just a little bit .. oh and maybe some chain for the charm ...
ahhhhh and i might have taken  his lolly sticks and cut  them in half and used them for my glue .... too .. but everything else is mine heeheeee ! actually i did run out of card and 
i think prehaps i might have just taken a snidgy bit of that too ,,but whos counting eh ?
