In the swing...

Good morning lovely friends.

Happy Saturday and I hope you all have a fabulous Bank Holiday Weekend

We have a new challenge starting today at
and it is
'your favourite colour combination'

2 Individual Digi images OR 2 Card Topper Kits OR one of each
(no sets or sentiment sets) 
of the winners choice from 
To be honest I could have picked any one of at least a dozen colour combinations for this challenge but I eventually went for Green and Pink.

I used the gorgeous Pink Gem digi - Chloe on Swing and coloured her with Copics.

I then die cut some foliage and a fence to make a little scene for her to swing in.

I finished the card with a die cut stitched frame.

...and here we are - sweet Chloe on her swing - the weather must be better where she is than it is here!

I is for Ink...

Good morning lovely friends...

A bit of news from me - I have had to review my card making commitments - I love this super blog world but things have got a bit busy!

So - I have made a really difficult decision to step down from a few of my wonderful Design Teams.

 I have said goodbye to Creative Inspirations which has been hard for me because lovely Natalie gave my my first DT chance over 12 months ago - I am really grateful to her for that.  

Creative Inspirations is a super twice monthly challenge and I know the team would love to see you there.

Anyways, on to today - 

We have a new challenge starting at 
I is For Ink
(Christmas Ink Only though)!

Our Sponsor this week is 
with a very generous £10 voucher for their beautiful store.
For my card today I chose the gorgeous digital stamp Wryn - Reindeer Games by Tiddly Inks

I coloured this beautiful image with Copics and made a background with white embossed snowflakes which then resisted the distress ink 'splodged' (technical term)! over the top.

Simples this one eh!

I must say thank you to the very talented Jeanette - Happy Thoughts and Inkspots who inspired me to make this card with a very beautiful similar card she made last year.
