Good morning folks!
YAY, it's Sunday and that means another challenge over at Colour Create
! This week's is a gorgeous colour combo of green and blue, plus we have paper piecing as the extra option. Our lovely Heather
came up with the colours and theme so I really hope you'll be able to join in and support her this week. I love what the DT come up with each week, but this week really is something else. All I can say is WOW! Hop over and take a peek at all the stunning creations, you'll be glad you did.
I have to say that paper piecing is probably my fave technique in card making so I was in my element creating my card for this week's challenge. I think this sweet Miss Anya image is perfect to show off the patterned papers too, her boots and bag just cry out to be pieced. I used some of my scrummy Kay & Co papers for this one, I love the shades of green and blue. The gorgeous glittered butterfly was sent in a RAK from my lovely pal Tara G
and I couldn't believe how perfectly it matched in.
You may notice that might blog has changed quite a bit today. Well I have been pondering for some time about how to make my photos bigger, then yesterday I spotted a post on Debbie's blog
explaining how to achieve this. You do have to create a new template before you can make the changes and it does mess up the layouts on your previous posts, but if you're looking to enlarge your projects then it's well worth a little inconvenience. Thanks Debbie for sharing this invaluable information with us, you're a gem!
Right, that's more than enough waffling for one post methinks! I need to finish a card I'm making for one of my teamies who has a birthday this week.........ooooh, I wonder who that could be!!! Then later we're off for a walk in Bluebell Wood, as we had to put it off over the Bank Holiday due to the weather.
Have a fantabulous Sunday and thanks so much for stopping by. If you've left a comment then bless you - it means so much to hear your thoughts and I appreciate you taking the time when we all have such busy schedules.

UPDATE: We've just returned from Bluebell Wood and the camera was playing up a bit, but I did manage to get these piccies.
The first one is a baby owl we found asleep on a branch. He didn't flinch when the flash went off, but we half expected his mum to swoop down and have a go at us, lol! The second just shows the carpet of bluebells which greets you everywhere when you arrive at the wood - they are beginning to die off now as they sadly don't last very long, so I'm glad we were able to see them today!
Most amazing was the smell of garlic throughout the wood as the garlic plants are growing. I love the smell but I have to say the kids were holding their noses quite a bit!!! xx
