Colour Create # 20 and a couple of awards........

Hiya folks!

I'm really sorry I haven't been around for a few days - unfortunately I've had a bad migraine (I'm a regular sufferer) and also a trapped nerve in my neck/shoulder...... in fact the two may have been connected! Anyway I have done very little blog hopping and must apologise for not keeping up with everyone's creations. I am working on it, lol!

My card is for this week's Colour Create challenge, where the combination is Pistachio Green, Aqua and Powder Pink and the optional extra is buttons. Can't you just tell I nearly forgot about the extra bits........ my buttons made an appearance at the very last minute, lol! I think these colours work beautifully together and will use them again for sure!

As you can see, I've used one of the new Pixie Chick downloads on this card...... well two in fact........ the Pixie and the swing. If you've not already done so, I would urge you to buy these fantastic downloads here as you get soooooooo much for your money!! There are two sets and each one contains oodles of Pixies, backgrounds and sentiments. I'm totally besotted by these lovelies - if you would like to see more examples hop to Dottie's World and check out what everyone has been up to!

I've been given two awards by Janny and Vicky - huge hugs to you both and thank you for thinking of me ;o)

I'd like to pass the awards to everyone who visits my blog to leave a comment - you really brighten my day!

I'm off out in the garden now to plant up the last of my Begonias - then hopefully it'll be a spot of lunch in the sun before it disappears....... it's going to rain tomorrow you know!

Fantastic, Tara! I love it. So pretty, fantastic colours.

Sorry you haven't been well. I'm a migraine sufferer too (less now than when I was a teen, but they're still dreadful when they show up). Big hugs to you - hope you're feeling better now. x

hiya Tara

This is such a beautiful summery card with such gorgeous colours. What a lovely fairy image, the glitter adds a pretty sparkly touch too. All those gorgeous embellies finish your card off a treat. I hope your feeling better luvly. So sorry for not visiting you in such a long time, I've been an awful blogging buddy to everyone of late, hoping to make up for that today though. Have a lovely weekend, sounds like your enjoying your garden too. Take care luvly xx vicki xx
