Good Evening...

... ooh its a bit late for me to make a posting and I've had a glass and a half of wine so please excuse any spelling mistakes - hic!!.

Well, I forgot to mention on my last post the sleepover went well, no noise after 12.20, footsteps to the loo at 5.30 but no more talking/giggling until 6.30 - not bad I thought - AND - hubby didnt get sent to his mums - lol!! My only trauma was the 2 boys who were to sleepover were invited from 7.30pm so I thought they would have had their tea and only had snacky things in - popcorn, doritos etc and they hadn't had any tea - aargh!! So a quick raid of the freezer and they were sorted - was I wrong to assume they would of had their tea???

Anyhoo, I just wanted to post this card I have made for my best mate:

I finally inked up my new LOTV stamp that I got in Harrogate - (what a nightmare I am having with my Memento inkpad - don't know what I am doing wrong!!), I have coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents to the cherries. I have also used some Laura Ashley paper with to be honest not sure how to describe the frosted type paper I have matted the image onto - I dont think its vellum - but you might be able to get an idea from the picture. The flower is a lovely deep purple from my stash as is the brad (from ebay) and charm.

I would like to enter this into:

LOTV Challenge - Animal Antics.
I love promarkers - song title. (If I knew you were coming I'd have baked a cake)

Hope you are having a nice night - right I think the wines gone to my head - hmm is it too early for bed??

Thanks for looking xx


  1. This is just so cute dear. I just love these little mice. They just make me want to smile from ear to ear. Thanks for joining us at LOTV dear.

  2. I would have assumed that tea had been eaten before arriving too. Maybe they had two teas!!
    Loving your mice. Nooooo honest hand on heart the only painting I have done has been walls, doors and skirting boards and a painting by numbers when I was 11yrs old! (Does that count?)

  3. Awh, what a sweet card, lovely soft colors! Thanks for joining us at Papertake Weekly :)

  4. I would of assumed that they'd had their tea and just had the snacky things for a sleepover. Now if it had been 6:30 I might of thought Pizza......

    Glad it all went really well, love the gorgeous card x

  5. Hi. Adorable image and the song title is perfect for it. Lovely card. Thanks for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers.
    Tine :)

  6. Fab card love the image and I would have assumed they would have had tea too

  7. Another vote for having eaten before 7.30. Love your card, I have a few sheets of what you call frosted paper and thought it was just paterned velum, so if you find the real name pass it on :)

  8. I would also have assumed they had eaten and would not have thought to ask if they hadn't lol!!! So they would have only got the snacks lol. Who says that I'm not child friendly!!! Lovely card Ali - that stamp is fab, really looks good.

  9. I'd assume children had eaten by 7:30 otherwise what time do they go to bed? Love your card and that image is so cute. Paper looks like printed vellum to me. x

  10. What a great card - loving that LOTV image and now I've got that song running round in my mind !!!!!
