Feeling in the pink (and green!)


It’s Hazel’s turn  to host at Willow Sketchie Challenge this week and here’s her fabby sketch :

The theme is Favourite Colour Combo.You can opt for either the sketch,theme or both. You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) we will be having a Top 3 hand picked by whoever is hosting the challenge for that week and will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used one of the recently released A6 Clear Stamp Sets from Willow Designs.They work fabulously as a mix and match across the sets and of course they go equally well with the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom.This one is Polly & Walter and I’ve used the masking technique to allow Polly to take a seat on the toadstool.After stamping Polly where I wanted her I stamped her onto some copier paper and cut her out.Using some repositionable adhesive (green Stix 2 tape runner) I covered her over and positioned the toadstool exactly where I wanted it.That’s the beauty of clear stamps!I coloured her with ProMarkers to match the backing paper.This has been printed from the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom onto linen textured card.I told you they worked well together!I’ve used some pretty pearlescent card to compliment the paper and stamped and coloured the frame to match too.The greeting inside is from the set too and as you can see fits a treat.To finish the card I’ve added some gingham (yeehaw!) ribbon and some cute pearl brads.As you can probably tell I’ve rotated the sketch.I did have a hard time picking my favourite colour combo as I have quite a few.lol.In the end I decided to plump for Pink & Green for a lovely Summery fresh feel.Well we have had a few hours of sunshine this week 😀

Look what I caught my doggy red pawed doing this morning:


Been trying to capture her for a few days but every time I pointed the camera at her she jumped off! She likes it up there ‘cos she’s SO much closer to the birds she barks at – well that’s what she thinks!

Thanks for looking

    Oh Lisa this is stunning, I love the colours you have gone for they are brilliant together.
    Hee hee with the Doggy, Belle cant manage up as high as the trampoline here. She does like chasing birdies though and was so busy looking up one day she fell in a rock pool. Poor Mutt, made me laugh though!!!
