Natural beauty


Good morning to you - how was your week ? I have to admit that I was pleased to get back to some sort of routine and normality. Issac has had a lovely holiday from school but he also was ready to go back and he was full of joy when I picked him up after school yesterday - telling me about his day and all they'd been doing - which is so nice to see and I hope it continues for the years ahead.

Aidan has gone back to nursery with not so much joy ! He likes being at home with his Mum !
But he is there for a couple of hours this morning and back tomorrow for the morning so he better get used to it - anyway he has a great time while he is there and always comes out with an armful of paintings for the kitchen door !

Anyway I suppose I had better stop whittering and get on with telling you about the card I have made !! {Sorry !}

This week at the colour create challenge blog Edna chose the most goregous colour combo for us all to play withRed, cream & sage with optional buttons.

Thank you Edna for such a beautiful and elegant colour combo - I loved playing with this combo and will def be using it again. Pop over to the colour create challenge blog and you'll see that ALL the DT LOVED it and produced the most amazing cards.

As well as an amazing colour combo we also have an amazing prize up for grabs. The winner will get $5 worth of Mo Mannings gorgeous digi stamps from Mo's digital pencil.

For my card I have used papers from a super old cosmo cricket kit that I came across recently - the papers just seemed absolutely perfect. I used 2 dies - spellbinders picot circle and my crealies creative butterfly too - actually thinking about it I used 3 dies as the "thank you" sentiment {HOTP} is stamped and then die cut with my smallest spellbinders circle !

I didn't have the right colour twine so I used my natural button twine and coloured it with my red promarker before threading onto my button - VOILA !

It is a simple card but I love it !

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

The shabby tea room - Something with wings
Sentimental Sundays - Anything goes
Flutterby Wednesday - Open {with a butterfly, fairy or angel}
Truly, madly, crafty - Anything goes
Paper creations Ink - Die cuts/punches
Craft your passion challenges - Anything goes + distressing
Clear it out challenge - Thank you card + use twine/ribbon
The paper shelter - Anything goes
C.R.A.F.T - Thank you

Thanks for visiting me today - I hope you are well {and warm - brrrr} where ever you are x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
