My Pink Woods...........

Good morning all you lovely jubbly people, how are you on this fine day? I have been quite poorly & in quite a bit of pain the last 2 days, actually thats most days lol. My consultant rang the other day with results from my abdominal scan, apparently I have a sizeable cyst but its 1 of those that causes a lot of pain cus of also where it is......derrrr I could of told him about the pain I didnt need a doc for that lol. Anyway I've now got be referred to yet another doc to have that looked at & resolved before I can have any further tests done. He is gonna try rush it tho cus he doesn't want to wait to too long to do the other tests......yayyyyy thank goodness for that!! Anyhoo last night I was doing some behind the scenes work, ya know what I mean but then about midnight I had the urge to do 1 of my sweet pea stamps, I wanted to do 1 of the new ones I still had in a box!!! Of course once I coloured it I then noticed that In A Sweet Pea Dream you could enter 3 times & the challenge was ribbons & bows......well what did Mr Postie bring me yesterday......my seam binding ribbon & OH MY GOODNESS....I love this stuff!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!
This is 'Purple Woods' but my version lol......

Over at Friday Sketchers the fabby Jacque has done a sketch & its a fab 1, I will def be using this again!! Hope they can see the sketch. As you can see my purple woods kinda turned 'Pink'. Yes the marianne die came out again for the image which I think frames her beautifully. The gem in the top corner I got for crimbo.

You can get here from Sweet Pea or Crafts & Me which is UK based.
She is coloured with Copics which I am totally loving & a smidge-in of Prisma on the pinks. I have also added white sakura pen as you can see & touches of glitter in places. When I finished colouring her I wasn't certain about her but I made the card up & it just all flowed together....dontcha love it when that happens!!! I had it finished for 2 0'clock am which I thought was good.....for me anyway lol.

The flower I used my magnolia doo hickey, the bottom layer is the insides of wrapping paper & the top is just thin white card which got coloured with R20 Copic. They both got inked up with 'Vintage Photo' DI, glittered & then a button from my jar.

This is the lushious seam binding. I made a double bow & stuck another button in the middle. The binding comes in soooo many colours, Mine I got off Ebay but I do know that a few ribbon stores are selling it now. I brought £10 worth off Ebay in various colours but I'm off to price up larger quantities now I know I like it lol.

Well I'm off to take my man a cuppa in bed cus he has been up with me most of the night bless him. Actually everyone is still in bed, altho Natalie is awake lol, its just me & the dogs here on the sofa this morn lol.
I am off to link this card up. I hope you liked this one. I also want to thank everyone for their kind comments yesterday about my cards you are all wonderful & dont let anyone tell you differently......you are totally & truly AWESOME!!!!! mmwah.
Thank you for stopping by I loves ya for it & I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will be round to your place soon to see your latest wonderful creations, until then....

Mmm that ribbon does look rather luscious, as does your card! I can't believe you are using more of that wrapping paper middle!!! Love the white highlights too, never dared try that yet, I'd just look like i'd drawn white lines on my image lol!! So have you thought about venues for selling your cards yet then? x

Another beautiful card!!! I'm loving the double bow you've done (how do you do double bows?? Will have to look that one up!?) And thanks for the seam binding tip on ebay - was gonna get some from the Ribbon Girl after Bev's tip off but they've sold out! I like that you can colour it to match your project easily. Sorry to hear about your stomach - I hope you're taking care of yourself - as well as everyone else!!! Hugs, Marie xxx
