Totally Papercrafts Challenge - One For The Girls

Morning everyone... hope you've all had a lovely week.
I managed to get my girls moved in to their new digs yesterday..
and apart from a fridge that frosts up all the time,
a cooker that doesn't work properly,
a leaky boiler and the narrowest, steepest staircase
I have ever come across,
things look great!!!

I can see us reaching for this bottle of Archers well before the 8th!

I am the host for this week's Totally PaperCrafts Challenge and
I'd like to say a quick thankyou for all your fantastic entries last week.
Pop on over to the blog to see who was the lucky winner,
and the Top 3.

This week the theme is


So you can get out all your pretty papers,
gorgeous ribbons and girly embellies.

This week's sponsor is the lovely Jules from Daisy Doodles
and she is offering the winner a digital stamp set.
Not only can you get some inspiration from our awesome DT,
but we have also been joined by some of the Daisy Doodles DT.
Please check out their amazing cards.

I chose to do a little project, designed to make my girls come home and visit!
Who could resisit a girls' night in with alcohol and popcorn??

For my invitation I used the Daisy Doodles image 'Tropicana'.
Coloured with Copics and some stickles glitter.
I made the 'Girl's Night In' text, on my computer.
I also used the image to make little glass charms,
with a small scalloped nestie.
That's the luxury of digital images -
you can resize them to fit your project.

Design Paper - DCWV, Nana's Nursery, Baby Girl.
Card Candy and ribbon from my stash.
