Colour Create Challenge - Red, Cream, Chocolate

Happy bank holiday Monday everyone and hope the weather is a bit brighter where you are. It's dull and a bit chilly here so a good day for staying put and crafting. Got the Grandchildren this afternoon and Jessica has the time planned, we are going to make her a blog. Granddad will have to play Ben 10 with Elliot, he'll really enjoy that LOL!

Well yesterday Jessica and myself went to Mountain Ash Crafts to see Jayne Nestorenko and spend some money. It was lovely to see Jayne demonstrating as she has such a lovely way about her and everyone was enthralled at her work. Jessica took her card (see earlier post) that she had made and some chocolate mice which of course Jayne couldn't wait to eat. Jessica bought some fairy decoupage and designer papers plus some lovely ribbons (shares my ribbon passion obviously) and I got three Pink Gem stamps, one of which I've used on the Colour Create challenge which this week is Red,cream,chocolate, check out the yummy picture on the CC blog.

The card base is made from some embossed brown card from Crafters companion (they do some lovely card packs ) and I cut away the top right corner to show the Basic grey Boxer paper inside.The image is a Pink gem stamp Flowery Mimi coloured using Whispers brush pens, the edges softened with red using cut and dry and matted onto some basic grey paper. The brown and cream paper on the front is Papermania. The flower is a Flora Doodles with a punched out large and small flower layered on top. The red ribbon is from stash and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. The little gems are just peeloffs.
Thank you for visiting me today I really appreciate it and if you leave a comment I'll be able to pop over and visit you.
Hugs, Pat xx

  2. Hi Pat
    It's great that you have some young blood to craft with. I miss that, my offspring and relatives are all male so there is only myself and my neice who lives a fair way away. Thats why blogging buddies are such a boost for me so I have left a little something on my blog for you. I got that DP out to do my colour create challenge but changed my mind!!

We took kids to Telford Park today, but as you know the weather couldnt make its mind up so we ended up in the centre. Of course I had to pop into the range as well and some items were begging me to take them home lol !!!!!
