Going to be pampered...

Hi Best Blogging Buddies

Well... in honour of the fact that my lovely OH and me are off tomorrow for a couple of days at a fabbie spa hotel, I decided to make a card to mark the occasion!  So out came LOTV Positively Pampered..  And yes, she had to be all pink and glittery (we'll maybe just refer to this in future as 'a la Christine..' hehe!


I coloured her with copics and promarkers, and I did try various embellishments including ribbons and bows with this image, but decided finally that she and her glitter was all that was needed - so I left her at that.  I did score a grid on the card behind her, then glittered the grid with Ice Stickles... I like the look I think...  No busy DP's tho to take away from her prettiness!


Now, for those hanging on tenterhooks waiting for news of my first WI meeting last week!!  Well, certainly no Jam and Jerusalem despite a lot of your comments!! hehe!  I'd made friends with some lovely ladies before I'd even got through the door - and they'd saved me a seat so I didn't feel so Billy No Mates!  There were about 80 ladies in the meeting altogether - it's a new and really fresh WI group... and I would say the average age is around 40-45 (ish).  Of course my joining raised that average a good deal! The talk was by a lady from 'Colour Me Beautiful' - and was all about the colours you should wear and how you look in the first impression you give means so much.  And there was I sitting in my jeans....  Hmmmm!  Anyway.... despite that, I really enjoyed the talk and made a few new friends, so a success all in all!  And guess what.... the next meeting just happens to be a craft night!  With.......  yes, you've guessed, a card making stand!!  (There is also a cross-stitch and a sugar-craft stand too).  So me being me, offered to help out with the card-making.  Good thinking???????   But now I think I have to come up with a project!!!  HELP PLEASE!!!  All suggestions gratefully received!  But remember, there won't be loads of scissors or DST, and I'm not taking my copics (heaven forbid)...

Hope you're all having a good week.... I'll think of you tomorrow when I'm being pampered having my facial etc... honest!

Take care and Happy Crafting
Hugs

  8. Hi Christine - oh wow, love it! Your colouring is superb and love the sparkles - just perfect.

    Glad the WI went well, you've obviously struck lucky there - our WI's are all (now am I allowed to say this?) shall we say older (much!) ladies. The traditional idea of WI and they do not like strangers!!!! The looks you get - arrrggh!

    Not going to be much help with the card stall - maybe die-cuts? You could make a butterfly on an embossed circle maybe? Dunno if that's any help or not!!

    Enjoy the spa - lucky you!!!

  13. I knew you'd make friends straight away Christine. So glad you enjoyed it.

    Your card is just adorable and you were right not to add any more embellishment; it's perfect as it is.

    Have a fabulous spa day - I'm soooo jealous! It's my birthday tomorrow and I'd much rather have a spa day than a day in work :(

  25. Me again honey - you had a question re the sentiment on my cupcake card today. It's by Elzybells but unfortunately she's out of business now! :( Think she is making a few collection for Penny Black but not sure if this one is available. If I see it, I will let you know!
