Anything Goes Challenge- a real sweetie!

Yep it's Anything Goes Challenge time again!! This fortnight's challenge is "a real sweetie!" Think cakes and sweets for birthdays or Christmas puds, candy canes for Christmas- let's see what you can come up with!

It's unintentional the similarity between this week's sample and last time's sample!!!!! If I have time, I like to get ahead with my DT work and will make cards early if they fit in with someone's birthday, anniversary etc. I guess I just must've thought that this paper pad works so well with these LOTV images!!

Sorry the photo is a little dark but I hope you can see that the nailheads are brown, as is the heart shaped button!

So I've used this cute Lili of the Valley image and have coloured with watercolour and lyra pencils and then simply outlined with a warm copic. I shaded the background with some pale pink ink whilst still in the nestie. I'm loving using nesties to matt and layer with more interesting shapes. The heart border is a Magnolia Doohickey die and the sentiment is Stamping Bella. Papers are Honey Cake by MME purchased from The Craft Den.

I love her cupcake stand and her cute little tutu-style dress!

I think she looks very elegant for afternoon tea!! Smarter than me with my glass of water and chocolate digestives!!! ha ha.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (LOTV, Stamping Bella); Watercolour pencils; Copics; Papers (MME); Nailheads (Josy Rose); Button; heart Doohickey die (Magnolia)

As I laid in the hospital bed I started thinking that I had a show to do. I was hoping the Doctor would put me together so I could do the show
