My Sweet Lili

Oh my, am I late with this card. I've managed to squeeze a combi in here but I haven't been feeling too good at all so I'm very late meeting the deadline for the Passion for Promarkers Challenge and A Spoonful of Sugar this week. I love doing the PfP Challenge and the colours are so nice - Rose Pink and Lime - I didn't want to miss it. Also, I can enter this for Papertake Weekly which is a colour combi. I really like their sketches, but this week the challenge is colours. You can use any colours you like from pink, green, black, white, yellow, grey and lilac. The C.R.A.F.T. Challenge is also pink and green this week - handy, eh? A Spoonful of Sugar is swirls and since the paper has swirls on it, I think it meets that challenge as well. That's 4 challenges so that's not bad for one card, I think. I didn't have time to rummage around for a sketch by the time I surfaced from the couch yesterday so I just made up one of my own. Hope it's ok.

This is My Sweet Lili by Sarah Kay. She belongs to Suzanne. I haven't used her before but I think she's absolutely lovely and I've just been waiting for the right time. She's so nice, it's a shame to put ink on her! The card was a doddle to make, the colours just go so well together but it must have taken me about 2 hours to get these ruddy flowers to stick to the paper. To coin a Scottish colloquialism, they were absolutely daeing ma heid in. I eventually got them cemented down with diamond glaze of all things. I'll be scared to give the thing to anyone now in case they come off in the envelope.

This is my recipe:
Image: Sarah Kay - My Sweet Lili (doesn't she just love that teddy?)
DP: Imaginisce - Loves Me (just one DP this time - the last card broke my heart!)
Coloured with ProMarkers:
Rose Pink
Lime and Apple
Spice, Cocoa and Coral
Satin and Blush Pink
The dreaded flowers and ribbon: Hobbycraft - I'm starting to loathe that shop
Green Glimmer Mist
Charm from my stash

That's it - no tools or anything else. Just a simple card.

Next time I'll try to make something with my new Martha Stewart punch (ooooh, fancy!) that I bought on Saturday at my favourite shop, Craft at Home. We had a lovely time, ladies. It's like visiting a long-lost family.

Thanks for dropping by.
