A bit of Saturday xxxx

Evening all
How is everyone out there in blogland? Have you been doing anything nice today?

As I said last night, I had my wee craft club this morning. We had a great wee morning all trying quilling, sadly no project to show as I ended up being teacher! Everyone did really well and made some lovely lil cards!

After a wee lunch me and hubby played the kinect! Hee what a laugh that was and watching back the replays ............ ha legs arms and head going all ways hee!! I won some bits but hubby won over all, think he may have cheated some how????

After a rest, well earned, I decided to make a wee card using one of my lush new stamps! Wanting to get the image as perfect as I could took over 30 mins to colour! What you think? Still not sure its good enough??

Stamp -
Bookworm Fairy
coloured with my lovely promarkers
Sentiment -
Paper Makeup
Basic Grey
Olivia Papers
Martha Stewart border punch
everything else from Stash

I would like to enter it into a few wee Challenges
Totally Gorjuss - Sketch, 2 Sisters Challenge - Getting Girly, Craft your Days Away - Anything Goes and Basic Grey Challenge - BG plus Dots/spots
Basic Grey are having a wee Dt call and being in love with all their products I thought I would give it a wee go! Fingers crossed!!
No plans again tonight, the snow is bad so no cinema again!! Hmm maybe we'll watch another wee movie hee! Thanks to everyone who added their secret crush, was a good wee laugh! So tonight I though we should admit to our one weakness in the clothes shopping department?? Me well there is 3 things I nearly always buy if I see something I really fancy in the shops
  1. Socks - I just love them, cartoon, strip, spots anything I want them all
  2. Jammies - I just adore pj's and those who know ME know i spend as much time in them as I can hee
  3. And lastly I cant stop buying undies!! Yes I have an obsession with pants hee!!
So now you know my secret shopping weakness, whats yours?? Go on admit it, you know you wanna!! hee hee
Night night my lovelies

    I think my clothes weakness is just clothes though I used to love buying bags too. I've been quite good for a while now. I think all my pennies go on stash now!!

  5. Hi Melly. This is absolutely stunning. Have seen this image a few times and love it, (I don't normally like fairies) although everytime I check it out it is out of stock. Must go and have another look. Your colouring is perfect and so are the papers and sentiment. As for shopping weaknesses, I don't really have any. Just love window shopping or going with the girls. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Donna

  6. Lovely card! The colours are gorgeous, the image is beautiful, and the sentiment is right on!

    My shopping weakness is books. Lots of books!

    luv, Mags x

  7. Beautiful card Melly, terrific colouring of your fairy to the spotty BG papers you have used. Love the sentiment too.

    My shopping weaknesses are pens (can never have too many pens) and anything crafty !
