I couldn't wait to join in with this week's Copic Colour Challenge when I saw the lovely colours that had been chosen. I don't think you would obviously think of putting Acid Yellow, Mint Green and Brick Beige together, but they really work! Actually, the hardest task for me was finding some papers to match in, but then I found these from the Basic Grey Offbeat collection and was away!
I hope you like the flower and leaf stamps. I'm always browsing through the rubba on Ebay and recently came across this duo. I didn't realise until they arrived in the post that they are made by Dawn Bibby - a bargain methinks for under a fiver!! Why do I have such a thing for flowers and leaves? I wonder if it's because, in real life, I do love my garden. I have a passion flower and an early clematis to show you very soon. The buds are out and they'll soon be in full bloom. I'm very proud of what we've achieved in the five years since we moved in to this house, as the garden was a total jungle. I just wish I'd taken before and after photos but this never happened. It's still a work in progress as it's huge, but we're not far off now. Chris built a gorgeous gazebo last year but the rain hampered our enjoyment of it a bit. Do you remember how wet last summer was?! Let's hope for a bit more sun this year heh?
Sorry, I totally digressed from the card then, lol! I'll love you and leave you for now, but I will return tomorrow with my Basic Grey DT card.

I hope you have a truly wonderful weekend - the weather forcast is looking good. If we manage to get to Bluebell Wood for a walk on Monday I'll definitely take some piccies and pop them on here next week. See, I'm off on a tangent about flowers again, hee hee!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
