My Lovely Friends,

My Colour create card and my exciting news,

Hi peeps, I'm using the post writer on my blog for the first time, would you believe it as I normally use Live writer but it has no labels slot so I have decided to use this, so I'm hoping this comes on my blog ok, as I'm also trying to get it to come up tomorrow or today if your reading this lol,

I've used Distress inks to colour the image, the image was sent to me as a RAK by my lovely friend Elaine, Thanks hun,
Challenge, Lily of the Valley,

The colours this time over at Colour Create  have been chosen by or lovely Victoria and she's gone for Hot Pink, warm Orange and Saffron, the optional extra is butterflies,
It's not colours I usually use but I must say I enjoyed the challenge and this is my card,
My exciting news is the lovely Sandie over on Paperplay has asked me to be on their DT team and of course I said yes, so what a fantastic week I've had lol, the theme for them this week is open and so I've made a christmas card, I don't know why because I usually don't do Christmas till November lol, I have used one of Di gorgeous Digi's for my card from here and it was so lovely to print, and colour,
Challenges, Little Red Wagon~ Christmas in July...   Tuesday Taggers~ Christmas in July...   Cupcake Craft~ Pastel Christmas,
 I have used a Marianne  Creatables die for the main body of my card using glitter card and making sure the top of two of the scallops were out of the die so it made a card lol, I then used a scallop and circle Nestie for the image which fit's perfectly inside, the image is coloured with copics and has quite a bit of glamour dust on them, the ivy is a punch I've had for years, well I hope your all having fun, hope to see you soon,
