Colour Create Challenge

Well, what a fantastic time we had yesterday ! With the main roads well looked after, we made our way to Warminster Park and found ourselves some fantastic sledging slopes ! We all had a scream and the atmosphere was full of fun and laughter. The park itself was so pretty and the lake virtually frozen and those poor ducks and swans were so hungry !

Looks like we are now in for a big thaw so what will we all talk about now ?!!!!

We had a fantastic response to last week's challenge of lemon and lime - thank you to all those who joined us.

This week our fabby teamie has chosen these gorgeous, gorgeous colours with the optional extra being texture.

Oooooh yummy !!

The base card is kraft card.

The white corrugated card is from The Papermillshop. I have just noticed that this was my last piece and the had very little of it when I bought it so I'm not sure if its a usual line they stock.

The DP's are My Minds Eye Signature Christmas as was ideal for this colour combo.

The kraft corrugaged card is from my stash.

The image is by Lili of the Valley and he has been coloured with ProMarkers. I also added some faux stitching around the edge.

The brads are BasicGrey.

The string, button and label are from my stash.

The rest of the DT's cards are fabulous, you just have to see them. I get blown away every week at how different all our styles are. We look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Right, must go and get my gear on for the walk to school. School is open late this morning and I had a very disappointed face stare at me when it was announced on the radio the school was opening ! Still, the sledge we have is also ideal for grass and there is nowhere better than Westbury White Horse on the edge of Salisbury Plain for grass sledging in the Summer - wheee !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you leave - it was lovely to see you !

Take care and wrap up warm !
