Copic Colour Challenge # 14

I've had a lovely day crafting with my friend Sarah today and managed to make this card for the Copic Colour Challenge, which I really enjoy entering. Of course I'm now miles behind with all my jobs but they can wait for another day. Given the choice what would you do...... sit and natter with a matey, drinking tea and eating blueberry muffins, or settle down to a nice big pile of ironing and run the hoover round? It's a no brainer!! Of course, when the hubster returns from work, the ironing board might just have magically appeared and there may be a bead or two of sweat to be mopped from the brow of his hardworking wifey...... hee hee!

When I saw the colours for this week's challenge I knew I was going to have to create something bright and cheerful. What better way to ward off the horrible rain we keep getting than with this gorgeous image of Holly on the beach. If you don't already know, Holly is part of the World Tour download from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

It's worth a visit to the Copic Colour challenge if you get a chance, it's really good fun to play along and if you don't have the right colours then improvisation is the word!

Fab card Tara.Those colours look fantastic with that image.Mice and bright.Love the way you've done the sentiment.
We're so devious when it comes to crafting.Had a wee laugh as I always make it look like i've been busy doing the housework all day just before my hubby is due in too.

Hi Tara, Gorgeous card! I love the bright summer colours. It certainly makes me think of sunny holidays. x PS: Thanks for your comment on my card yesterday but don't know what happened to it. I accepted it but when I edited my post it disappeared.
