A Bit of "Zing" !!!

Good morning and welcome to a new Colour Create Challenge.

I hope you all had a good Christmas with lots of yummy pressies, things to eat and drink. I was obviously a very good girl throughout the year as Santa treated me very nicely indeed ! We had a lovely quiet time and have been enjoying playing all the new games the girls received from Santa. I can't believe it is all over all ready !

Tonight will be an equally quiet occasion for us but spent just how we like it.

Well, this fortnight at Colour Create we wanted to put a bit of "zing" into your lives after all that red, green, gold, silver etc. and the lovely Sharon chose Lemon and Lime with the optional extra of spring or summer flowers.

The DP's are the new BasicGrey "Origins" and they are just gorgeous, BasicGrey have really excelled themselves on the new papers that have just come out, I loves em !

The image is by Diane Duda "Upside Down". I just love this stamp, it is so fun. I don't usually make New Year Resolutions but I think this year I might try to dig deep in my stamp drawer and dig out all those stamps that have been neglected and used once or even worse, never used ! She has of course been coloured with ProMarkers.

The ribbon and flowers are from my stash.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts and has been stamped in Memento Cantaloupe ink.

You must hop over to the Colour Create blog and look at my fellow DT's cards, they are amazing and so bright and colourful. Just what we need on a dull morning like this morning.

Well, this will be my last post of 2009 so I wish you all a very happy New Year and I'm looking forward to a very crafting 2010 with the wonderful friends I have met through blogging. I shall be desperately saving my pennies so I can go to the NEC and Ally Pally and hope to meet some more of you there - two fabulous days out.

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave me. As always, they mean so much.

With much love and hugs to you all,
