Lace, Ribbon and Pearls...

Hello... I hope you are all well... and big hugs to those who are not feeling good...

I thought I would join in with the Bingo theme this month over at Heck of a Challenge and I 've chosen the row of...

Lace, Ribbon, Pearls

which of course are perfect for a girly card... so I've used one of my new LOTV pre-coloured Toppers and teamed it with some lovely papers that were a Birthday Gift from my lovely friend Ira... Thanks hun! the darker purple one has metallic foil pattern on...it's very pretty but doesn't show up very well in the photos..

Image: Pre-coloured from LOTV Art Pad 7 - Just For Girls
Papers: Gift from Ira
Ribbon and Pearls: MeiFlower

I do love the new pre-coloured Art Pads from LOTV :-)  I don't always have time to colour images at the moment... so these are very easy to use and I think they look fab teamed with some nice papers and embellies... 

I still love colouring though... and when I do get a bit of spare time then I really appreciate it... :-)

I would like to enter this card into:

Heck of a Challenge - Bingo - (Lace, Ribbon, Pearls)

It's a bit cooler here today... in fact it looks a bit thundery at the moment!! I'm just going to have some Rum 'n' Raisin Ice Cream and then might do a bit of crafting... if I don't fall asleep that is... I'm so tired this week... seem to have had lot of little jobs to do... ordering stuff online... then sending it back!! :-(  
I bought some Trousers and I measured myself and everything... they arrived yesterday and honestly you could fit two of me in them!! I would say that is good but I know I've not lost weight...LOL ... so I know it is their sizing that is wrong!!! 

Thanks for all your lovely comments! I will be back with another card soon... :-)
Take Care
Love and hugs

Really lovely card Sue, great papers and layout, I do like the LOTV pre-coloured images as you can even go over them sometimes with deeper or different colours.
I hate clothes shopping these days as nothing is what is says on the lable and M&S are the worst.

This is really pretty Sue, your image is lovely - I know what you mean about these pre-coloured images, they are so handy when you are a bit pushed for time. Fabulous papers and great design.
We've had rain all day today and it's quite cold - I refuse to turn the heating on in June though, so we'll just have to find a jumper to put on.
Take care of yourself and enjoy your ice cream.

Wendy said...

So gorgeous Sue, adorable image and love the colours.

This is so pretty Sue I love LOTV and I've just recently got mine out to play again after ages and ages of not using any. Those papers are fabulous and your design and layout are gorgeous Hunny, you have really rocked this little beauty.
I don't know if you are my number for commenting but while I'm here I might as well add this to it!!
Thanks for sharing at HOAC and good luck
Hugs Laurie
Rum 'n' raisin is the only flavour ice cream I don't like!!!

This is really adorable sweetie. Gorgeous colours. Hope you enjoyed your ice cream you have made me fancy some now. That is my favourite flavour but haven't been able to get it for years. Sorry you are feeling very tired at the moment and having a waste of time with things that you have ordered being wrong.
