blue and green should never be seen...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...well I'm still being a recluse and didn't go out yesterday I think I need to give myself a really good shake or one of you need to give me a slap or two lol...the good thing is I'm having fun colouring and playing while I'm reclusive, although I have done a bit of cleaning too, I even scrubbed out one of the bathrooms and bent down to put bleach in the loo and plop went my glasses, the air was blue and that wasn't cleaning products but my language lol...I suppose it could have been a lot worse and not been bleach they were covered in but we will gloss over that thought...see I knew cleaning wasn't good for you, I hate the smell of bleach and no matter how hard I scrubbed my glasses they still smell a bit of it...I really need some fresh air now don't I...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge...this week its our lovely Suzan's choice and she chose 'Use A Doily' now I know it doesn't look like I used one but I cut mine up and made the lace frill from it...the cute little Tilda is Sweet Christmas Holly Tilda I coloured her with distress inks and with the addition of a few pearls I think she works brilliant for anytime of the year don't you, I teamed her up with these amazing papers from the Kaisercraft Blea and Ivy 6.5x6.5 paper pad the Tilda and papers are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I finished with the cut doily lace, loads of different size pearls and some Satin ribbon 15mm SAXE BLUE from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, the fab sketch is from the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and Fab 'n' Funky challenge...right I AM going out today so will report back lol...whatever your up to today have a fabulous one
