Colour Create # 19 - Blush Pink, Lilac and Mossy Green























Good morning everyone!

Gosh doesn't time fly - here we are with another Colour Create challenge already - picked this time by my dd Georgia. I don't tend to use a gret deal of lilac but I think it goes perfectly with the other colours this week. Come to think of it, there aren't really that many paper ranges with a lot of lilac in them are there?

I really enjoyed the optional extra part of the brief - to use die cuts. I regularly cut out flowers and leaves for my cards so I felt right at home with this. Of course your nesties count as die cuts too so it should be nice and easy for everyone.

Although it's nice to use the latest images, I also love to rummage through my stash and in this case I came up with a Sugar Nellie cutie sent to me ages ago by my friend and teamie Katy!

I really hope you can join us again for the challenge this week - it's really lovely to see your cards. If you hop over now you'll notice that we have a new teamie as well! Dena has agreed to join us and I'm so thrilled as she has such a talent - welcome Dena!

Before I go I must show you two awards I've received this week:

This one was given to me by the lovely Christine and I just want to say a huge thank you for your lovely comment, it means such a lot ;o)










I received this award from my dd Georgia - how fantastic is that to be given an award by someone you love so much....... thanks Geeg, you're a treasure ;o)













Must dash and get some paperwork done now so I'll see you all later!
