Butterflies & Pigtails - Basic Grey GDT Card

Good morning peeps,
All week I have struggled to find any motivation to make a card & hadn't even bothered with my craft room for 6 days and of course hubby starts his holiday and I want to play, play, play, that's so typical of me lol. I stamped and coloured a few images today as well as blitzed my craft room again still hunting for my missing bow easy. I think I have to face facts, it's been stolen, gasp, yes stolen, thank goodness my Magnolia's are still all here safe lol.

Today I have a GDT card for
to share, and this fortnight the challenge is
Thanks so much for inviting me to join you Liz & Jo xx

I have at last got round to inking up one of the gorgeous Sassy stamps the very lovely Elaine treated me to for my birthday, actually I was a very lucky girl & Elaine was very naughty and treated me to the whole new release, thanks again hun xx
Ingredients -
Image - Simply Sassy, Sugar Nellie
Medium - copics ( don't look close I'm a learner lol)
Papers - Basic Grey, Sweet Threads
Flowers - Wild Orchid & Prima
Anything else for stash
I've learnt an important lesson that loose glamour dust loves sticking to any tacky areas on the the copic colouring, so note to self either use stickles or colour well away from a pile of sparkly flowers lol

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Creative Inspirations - fab sketch, Creative Inspirations - stitching,  The Poodles Parlour - come fly with me, Crafty Creations - let it shine,  Anything Goes - summer, Crafts & Me - in stitches, Crafting For All Seasons - summer, Papertake - here comes the sun, Craft Us Crazy - red, white & blue &/or summer theme, Crop Stop - summer inspiration & embossing, Secret Crafter - embossing

That's all from me for today peeps, I'm armed with a cup of coffee & fancy having a bit of a blog hop until hubby goes to play another of those "never again" games of cricket, guess who will be wanting a radox bath and some deep heat cream later lol.
Thanks for stopping by
