Pink and green!

 We have one of my favourite challenge themes starting today at Passion for Markers - we would like to see your 'Favourite Colours' on your projects. 

My all time favourite colour combo is pink and green and although I have used this image more than once before, I just love her and couldn't resist featuring her again!

Cheers!

 Oh my gosh, how hot is it? I don't enjoy crafting in this weather - everything seems to stick to me and I can't risk turning on a fan!

 But I have persevered as we have a new challenge at Passion for Markers and this week it's 'Celebrate' , for my DT card I have used an image from our sponsor Sheepski Designs ( I'm really into Gnomes at the moment and couldn't resist this image)

Happy Anniversary to us!

But, we really have! And to celebrate we have one of our legendary challenges with zillions of prizes up for grabs, so do pop over to the PFM blog to check them all out

Our theme is 'Spots and/or Stripes'

I have used an image from LOTV that I used eons ago when I found it in one of LOTV's art pads and, so I thought I'd never have the chance to use it again.

Don't forget to pop into the blog to find all the details and get some inspiration from the Team 2 girls

I have used a Penny Black stamp that I have used for DT cards more than once before, but I do  love it, it stamps so well and is easy to colour.  I have made a centre panel card inspired by Sam Calcott's Youtube video:
