A Perfect Pair




Oh what a change in the weather. You never get 2 days the same in England!!!!
Brilliant sunshine and very hot yesterday, so was out and about with my mum and sister shopping after doing the bare minimum of housework again and cold and splashing down with rain today. So seeing as it was cold and horrible I got some of my craft stuff and plonked it in the conservatory, switched the heater on, grabbed a couple of coffees, a few biccies and made a few cards. I've made this one for my niece's 1st wedding anniversary plus I'm going to enter it into the Create4fun Challenge. I've never entered a challenge before so this is my first time ever and I hope I've got the remit right. The challenge this week is to use black, white and one colour of your choice. So this is my entry. The image is a freebie from Little Paper Shop isn't this just gorgeous. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and had to download it and for once made a note of where I downloaded it from. I've coloured it with with my chalks except for the leaves which I did with my copics- I don't trust myself to colour it fully with copics, so much easier to rub it out with chalks lol. Maybe when I've had more practice I'll do it with copics, still in the beginners stages with them. I bought a card stack of the green and white spotty card from Harrogate show in March and only wish I'd bought more. There was so many colours, pink, blue, lemon, green, lilac and all in spots, gingham, etc. I'm using it loads, I just love the freshness of it. Anyway I'm starting to waffle again and going off on a tanget!! I'll try and keep focused. Lime green card was from stash, peel off sentiment coloured black, Papermania mosaic gems (aren't they just fab) added to centre and some black flat backed self adhesive gems added to top and bottom. I've got to say I just love this card. Biased - yep I think so but I do love it. TFL.
