It's about time you saw some colour on here


I've been a tad monochromatic recently in the crafts which I've blogged but today that's all changed thanks to the Play Date Cafe Challenge. A strong combo of red, turquoise and green make for a fest of funky colour.

As usual, I've made a card. Still no scrapbook layouts, I know. I've designed quite a few on the computer but I haven't put any time aside to print the photos out. I could do with putting an afternoon aside just to finish off all my semi-completed pages.

Not tomorrow though as it's promising nice weather and it's too good an opportunity to pass up. Now Autumn is here there won't be many Fridays left where Nick & I can take time out to visit outdoors touristy places of interest. So before the short days and rubbish weather keep us indoors we're going to take advantage of the last remnants of sun.



Supplies List:
Paper/Card: Black & Red (from scraps), Green (Bazzill Basics)
Stamps: Hero Arts, Basic Grey
Dies: Spellbinders
Border Punch: Martha Stewart
Other: Ribbon, Buttons

Love it! In theory these colours shouldn't look so great together but you have made them work perfectly!!

I have a phobia of scrapbooking, only managed 2 so far and one of those definietely shouldn't ever see the light of day again lol. People tell me to think of it as a large card, think that is what scares me as I like medium and manageable sized cards lol!
