Some News & the Latest MDUC Challenge

Morning everyone I know it has been a while since my last post but you see a lot has happened since then. The same day I did my last post my beautiful Nana who has been battling illness for a few years suffered kidney failure and the heartbreaking decision was made to put her into palliative care. The following afternoon aged 79 years old my Nana lost her battle. My Nana has been a huge part of our lives (as I am sure many of your Nana's have been to you) and I have not taken this very easily. Although we knew it was coming the reality of no longer having her to visit and knowing that she will never walk into a room again is heart breaking.

I had a feeling before this happened that this was coming and had made a start on some of my DT cards. As such I have one for you today and once for you later in the week. I am taking a short break from my cards but promise I will be back soon. Currently I look at my crafting stuff and think blah.....I know this will change again soon.

Today at Magnolia Down Under Challenges our new challenge is Black & White. We want to see Tilda/Edwin coloured in black and white only. Your card can have colour but not your image. It has been a ling time since I have coloured in black and white and have to say it was good fun.

My card is pretty uninspiring as I had so many things on my mind when I was making it.

We look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations. Don't forget to drop by MDUC and check out the awesome samples from the DT.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Until next time....

Trying a New Colour Combo for the New Year

Good morning everyone I am hoping that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. Our family had a great day.....I just cant believe after all the work and thought going into christmas it is all over again.....sigh! I would also like to wish you all a very Happy new Year. Lets hope our year is filled with love, laughter, good health and most importantly lots of crafting!!!

To it is my turn to post for the new challenge over at Mad for Markers which is try a  New colour Combo!

When I first started making my card I thought I would try some of my purples as they are my least favorite to use....Anyhow after making my card (which I always do first) I realised that although I have used purple patterned paper it is not that prominent but the peachy/pink is. So off I went scribbling away with my pinks and this is the combination I have some up with. R14, R22, R43, R11 & R00.....And here is what it looks like!

The photos are a little dark but it is so hot here in Melbourne that it is just too bright to get a photo outside without it distorting it. Hopefully the second picture gives you a better idea of the colour although saying that it is still a bit pinker in real life.

So here are the copics that I used:

Dress: - R14, R22, R43, R11 & R00
Apron: W7, W5, W3, W1, Roo, YG93
Top: YG99, YG95, YG93, YG91
Hair: E19. E99, E97, Y21
Basket: E77, E19 & Y21

I know I say this allt he time but if you are after some copics or even some cute stamps why not head over to Mad for Markers and let Sammi help you...

I am also going to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by, until next time.
