MAWTT - 'Girly Girly Prim and Proper'

Good Morning! Hope you are all well and Big Hugs to those who are not ... it's time for a brand new challenge over at

and this week the lovely Judith is our hostess and she has chosen the fab theme of 

'Girly Girly but Prim and Proper'

so we want to see lots of girly creations but with the emphasis on 'prim and proper' remember it doesn't have to be a card as long as you follow the theme.... can't wait to see all your gorgeous entries Winking smile

I've chosen an image from Crafts and Me called 'Heart in my Hand Melody' and she really does look prim and proper... but isn't she a sweetie! The gorgeous paper is V & A Hanoverian Stack that my daughter bought a couple of years ago... it's so scrummy that I tend to just take it out and stroke it... LOL but thought the paper was perfect for this challenge and to go with the lovely Melody!! 

The gorgeous Lace and Carnations are from Wild Orchid Crafts....the Handbag Charm and MeiFlower Pearls and little Gems on sentiment are from My Crafty Heart... Sentiment was freebie with magazine... 

I've coloured Melody with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Grey Pencil... I've dusted the background with Memento 'Sahara' Ink....

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Bunny Zoe Crafts.... 

For more details of the challenge and to see my Teamies gorgeous creations this week... hop on over to our MAWTT Blog !!

Hope you can join us for this girly challenge! 

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

Wild Orchid Crafts - Challenge 59 - 'Autumn Colours' ends 30th September
Bearly-Mine - Challenge 53 - 'Fall Colours' ends 24th September 2012 
SweetStamps - Challenge 83 - "Shades of Autumn" ends 24th September 2012 

Blogger and the internet have driven me mad this week... and my printer has been playing up big time too... it keeps saying that it has a 'broken pipe' ??? what the heck is that all about... then it works normally for a while... and then yesterday it took 30 minutes to print out a page of digi images... then just as it got to the end it spat it out and ruined them! I was not a happy bunny! Sad smile LOL
Ah well... not long until the weekend... looking forward to Downton again!
Thanks for visiting... I really appreciate all your comments...
Love and Hugs

Another stunner Sue, she is gorgeous - very prim and propper. I just love your colour combination and fab papers.
Technology is OK when it works isn't it - my hubby is away on business for two weeks and every morning when I turn on my laptop my heart is in my mouth just praying that everything works OK!

Morning Sue, hope you are well sweetie xx Its good to be back and catching up :)
Love your card, she certainly is a prim and proper isn't she. Love your paper too, I think you are right just to stroke it so it lasts
Hugs Mau xx

What a Princess of a card Sue. It is really lovely. Your papers go so well so you did well to stop stroking them. Your colouring and layout is awesome. Hope Blogger and your printer stop playing up for you soon. I can't wait for this weekend as I am at Ally Pally on Sat and Sun is Downton Abbey. Hope your week gets better soon and you enjoy the weekend.

Unknown said...

She's so fifties! I really love the atmosphere of your beautiful card here Sue, just look at her wonderful colours, her eyes! And that neat little handbag, too cute! Oh, and about that broken pipe, I think it must have something to do with your wireless connection. Have you tried re-installing your printer? This will usually solve things quickly! Good luck my friend, big hugs, Ira xox

Hazel (Didos) said...

Oh Sue you made me laugh with the broken pipe on the printer. Strange machine. Mine talks in German (think I hit the wrong button when I installed it!!)

Love your card and the papers are amazing, I can see why you have been keeping them, Love Hxx

Hi Sue

A gorgeous card.

Love the cute image and all your embellishments.

Your printer sounds like it is giving you torture treatment.

I am no expert but when my printer is playing up my hubby "re-installs the drivers" .. .. but don't ask me how LOL!!!

Love Jules xx

Oh I Love this Sue! Prim Proper and Oh So Sweet!! 8-) Love the soft colors you chose and your Wonderful coloring too! Goodness, sounds like you mechanical devices are not cooperating at all! That's just no fun, sounds like they decided to go all wonky with out so much as a how do you do! Hope they get back to normal soon, I wouldn't be a happy bunny, dealing with all that either! 8-)

Ally said...

aw lol, I keep buying paper and then tend to stroke it rather than use it LOL! So silly cause so many lush papers are coming out daily lol!
What a wonderful card, Hun, love it!
hugs, Alessandra

Unknown said...

Oh, this image makes me laugh. She does indeed look like a proper housewife straight out of the 50's! LOL Great colourmatch with the papers. Why don't ya' enter this card into the LLC challenge this month, or if you make something else using lace or a trim, there's still plenty of time left of this month.


P.S. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. I had an ear infection myself for the last 3 days; horrible pain, but at least now it's gone.
