Pretty bubbles in the air

The challenge this week at Craft Your Passion is to Use Pink.We also have the fabulous Whimsy Stamps as our sponsor.For details on how to play pop over to the challenge blog and don’t forget to take a look at the beautiful work by the DT and GDT.

For my card I’ve used Maya Blowing Bubbles.She’s a beautiful and versatile image.This is the first time I’ve coloured a darker skin complexion.I was quite pleased when I’d finished but looking back at the photo I’m not sure if I’ve done that good a job?Anyway,I thought I’d make a card with a Spring feel to it as I’m so fed up with Winter – it’s been too cold a one for me this year!It also gave me the excuse to try out my new Tonic Studios Punch.I picked it up for just £4.99 at a half price sale at my local craft warehouse.A fellow crafty shopper pointed them to me and I’m glad she did.It’s so pretty with the cut-out detail and it punched like a dream.I also got to play with my new doily die too!

Being an avid West Ham fan all his life I’m sure my Grandad would’ve been pleased to see my post title if he were still around.
