Pretty in pinks & purples!

Hello all and I hope that your week has been going well - and that you've been able to enjoy the glorious weather we've been having at the moment over a lot of the UK!  I know that warm weather is not to everyone's taste, but I must admit that I love to see some sunshine!  And thank you for all your kind comments about my garden pics - it's not a very big garden, but I quite like it!  And I'm not sure I'd have time to look after anything a lot bigger!  I'll try and get some pics of the pond soon - preferably before Tilly the Dog drinks any more of it!  I shudder to think about the effect that pond water, pondweed and the odd tadpole for extra seasoning must have on her digestive system - but when it's warm she seems to prefer drinking from there than from the nice clean water in her bowl!  Strange dog!

Anyway, just thought I'd share a card that I made with one of my 'older' LOTV stamps (there'll be another one appearing tomorrow lol!) - this one is 'New Hat'

And with such a girly image, I've gone for a girly colour combination too.  I've coloured the image with copics and promarkers - and I must confess that I'm loving working with the (few) copics that I own.  They seem to blend very well and have 'clearer' colour tones - well in my humble opinion!  But I've also got quite a lot of promarkers and not the purse to completely change over so I think I'll just keep adding odd ones to the collection! 
The papers are also from LOTV - as is the sentiment! I've added a bow of spotty ribbon from Joanna Sheen and a pearl brad.  And I was lucky enough to get the Memory Box precious hearts dies - so sweet!  

And the inside decorated to match! 

Hope you like the very girly offering today! 
Back soon,
Kim x
