a little of my candy-Crafts & Me challenge-Monochrome+Simon says stamp Bingo+CES Challenge Angels&fairies+Do you stack up-Pink+Sketch & Stash sketch

Good morning everyone, I didn't have time for a chat yesterday, Sunday was a fabulous family day, gorgeous lunch with roast beef and all the trimmings then a choice of chocolate brownie and cream or apple and blackberry pie and custard, or if you were Phil or my BIL both lol...then all the girlies went shoe shopping for new boots for my sister, my lovely little Lucy (my niece) took a shine to an umbrella in the shoe shop and walked out with it, good thing my Daughter works there isn't it, we don't want any two year old shoplifters in the family...Sunday night when everyone had gone and Phil had gone back to work away was so so quiet though...you could have heard a pin drop, when I have had a lot of company and then it very quiet I tend to talk to myself, the madness of getting older I think lol...anyway onto my card for today, I thought I would show what some of the papers from my candy look like used, aren't they amazing colours and I'm so pleased I got them all for some lucky winner, these ones are Bittersweet Crashed Berry and Raspberry cream...the stunning image is a Sara Burrier digi from Crafts and Me and is called Poppy, I love love love these images...I coloured her with Distress inks and glittered her wings, the ribbon is from American crafts and the sparkly flower centres are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, the crystal scroll is from Prima I think as there was just a little bit left on the plastic...I'm entering this for the Crafts and Me challenge which is monochrome (guess what colour I picked lol), the lush sketch is from Sketch and Stash (my stash is the papers and image), I'm also entering this for the CES Angels and Fairies challenge, Simon says Challenge (my choice of the bingo card was Ribbon, glitter and gems) and Do you Stack up Pink challenge...wow I don't think I have managed that many challenges together...right I'm off to catch up with some DT work have a great day everyone

Hi Mina, this is stunning, that colour choice is gorgeous as are the papers.
Your niece sounds just like my granddaughter when she was young, if you werent careful she would come out from the shop with something and youd not seen her pick it up, mind you she was only 2 so what can you expect, little ones take a shine to something and thinks its theres. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx
