My dear Fudge has been really unsettled today really clingy & wanting to be near me & Craig all the time, she has also being sick & panting heavily. Anyway it looks like she is in the 1st/2nd stage of labour so hopefully this time tomorrow we may have baby puppies. So its a night in the living room tonight for me & Craig just incase...... To be honest we have no idea how long this could all take!!!
I will put piccy's on once they are here my lovelies & if I dont get round to you please dont think I'm ignoring you cus I would never do that & I will catch up with you all.
Well I'm gonna go now I will keep you up to date on the Fudge labour saga.....oooooh gosh wish me luck I've never seen puppies been delivered before hubster has but I havnt so I'm gonna be quite amazed by it all lol. Honestly you should see my face when I feel them moving around inside her & she is even bigger than when we took the photos, I'm sure she gets bigger every day you know lol.

Good morning everyone how are you all? Those poorly I wish you better soon.
It is Saturday so of course its time for CES Challenges & this week our lovely Claire has set the challenge
We want to see all your sparkly get some glitter out & those beautiful blooms & come & join us. I was hoping my new stamps had been here as I had planned to use one on my card for today as it would of been perfect. Instead I have used another one of the gorgeous stamps I got the other week.

Of course this is 'Tilda In Summer Rain' from the new Rainbow Collection

Twill Sentiment & I've attached Tim Holtz Mini Pins to each end.
The beautufl lace I won off the uber talented lovely Elaine

Sprayed the flowers with Pearl Glimmer Mist & then sprinkled glitter on to give plenty of sparkle.

The leaf is cut with a Marianne die out of kraft card. The butterflies are punched out of ribbed kraft card & then glittered up & gems added to the centre.

Tilda has been coloured with copics, I coloured her last week so I can only remember some colours.
Skin - E13 E11 E21 E00 R20 R11
Dress & Umbrella - R0000 R000 R11
Bits of shading added with W3
I added glossy accents to the umbrella to make it look wet & to the puddle & rain drops.

All done in my fave colours.........
Final piccy in its box which I made........most of my cards go in boxes so nothing gets squashed on the card.

Well thats it from me but please pop over to see my fabulous teamies creations cus they really are sparkly stunning. Thank you soooooo much for stopping by I will see you all soon peeps.
