My First Bestie

Good morning all. Well the sun is shining today thank goodness. I think all the rain we've been missing made it's way to us yesterday, OMG, did it bounce down!!
I took my girls out for their tea and we were sat at a lovely table in the Conservatory eating a fab carvery when the roof started leaking, straight down my arm, back and onto my handbag, thank god it missed my tea, I had to shuffle up into another seat so my tea wouldn't get water logged.
We had to wait inside till it eased a little then make a run for it, not easy when you've just had a huge plate of food lol!
Should have posted this yesterday but ran out of time. I was asked by the lovely Rina at Fashionista if I would be a GDT.  Thank You hunnie. They have a super challenge this month of
Their fab sponsor is Sherri Baldy the creator of Besties
I've seen these little cuties and have never used one so I was looking forward to choosing one to use and I just couldn't resist her.
'Sweet Mary Lou'
I haven't used my copics for a while so I felt a bit of a novice when I started colouring in and I had a bit of a gaffe as the ink started to move a little, grrrr. I did try printing onto water colour paper so I could use my distress inks but the ink ran on that too, grrr.
Well if you don't look too close you won't see the mistakes lols!

Card shape - Go Kreate frilly 3, paper Dandelion and Daisy, Lovingly Yours.
Bestie - Sweet Mary Lou, coloured with copics cut out with Spellbinders Labels 29, added shabby white frantage
Marianne - LR0163 , heart and sentiment  1307
Joy craft - butterfly edge 0251 and frame 0147
Memory Box - Pippi butterfly
Magnolia - heart leaf
Martha Stewart - air dry clay bird.
Flowers - WOC
Ribbon and pearl stems - The Ribbon Girls
Pearls from stash
Hope the sun shines all day for you.
Hugs Sue Xxxx
