Felicity and Blair - Living Life!

Good morning everyone.

Hope you've had a lovely weekend and all you Mums out there had a great day on Sunday.

Just want to say a big Hello to my new followers. I really hope that you enjoy popping in and that you like what you see. Hopefully I may be able to  inspire a few people in the way that other bloggers do me.

Today I'm back with this fortnight's challenge over at Anything Goes. This time its 'Seeing Double'. So we want to see two of something, whether it be your images or embellishments.
Why not pop over and see some of the lovely creations from my fellow teamies.

I've used one of the lovely Uptown Girls stamps from Stamping Bella. I really enjoyed colouring them in. This is my one and only Uptown Girl stamp and I'm definitely itching to buy more. Saving my pennies though for the craft show at Harrogate this coming weekend. Mum and Dad are visiting from Thursday for 10 days so Mum and I will have a lovely girly day out at the show followed by a take-away and a glass of wine. What more could a girl want?

The papers are First Edition 'New Leaf' and they've been stitched and edged with Walnut stain.
This gorgeous image has been coloured in my usual Copics. I think this is the first time I've used the peach colours on a large area and am pleased with the result.

Copics used :-

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R11
Left dress: YR000, YR00, YR02, E70, E71, E74, E77
Cardigan: E40, E41, E42, E43
Right dress: BG70, BG71, BG75
Hair right: E21, E33, E35, E37, E59
Hair left: Y21, TR23, E33, E37

The flowers have all been hand rolled using various dies. I have to confess I treated myself to the Die-namics rolled daisy. I've seen Fleur use it a lot and just fell in love with it. It's even prettier in real life and gives a great 3D effect. The sentiment is LOTV 'Greetings Postmarks'

Dies used:

Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco F
Die-namics Mix and Match Banner, and Rolled Daisy
Marianne Creatables English Rose
Joy Crafts Vintage Flourishes Branch with Leaves

Why not pop on over to the Craft Den to have a look at what you may need for your next project. Lynne has lots of lovely goodies.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Paper Playtime #5 - Anything Goes
Avenue 613 - Anything Goes
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Anything Goes with Ribbon

Thank you so much for dropping by
