At Colour Create we have a new design team member to introduce to you - Deanne - welcome honey.
Deanne has a wonderful clean style of card making. She will be be a breath of fresh air to everyone and such an inspiration because she only uses stamped images under duress. I think it takes real talent to make the kinds of cards she does and what a clever lady she is. Please visit her blog because you will not be disappointed, her projects are beautiful.

This week we have another new colour combination and prizes for 5 people (yes, that is 5 separate prizes!).
Here are your colours - blue, sand, silver and black and the option is 'Summer'

Next our sponsor for this challenge is:

And we have been given 5 sets of vouchers to give away to people for 10% off anything ordered in their store.

Handy hippo have almost everything crafty in their online store from stamping supplies to wedding stationary, embellishments, paper and card to jewellery making. New in the store at the moment is 12" x 12" textured card in 75 different colours, Penny Black Stamps, Peel-off ribbons, Buttons, Dufex stickers and Laura Ashley products. You will really be spoilt for choice.

*****************************

I'm still struggling - I think it was easier working with limited resources than having all my stash here and not being able to find anything (I labelled boxes crafts, books, clothes etc. but didn't put which specific item was in each box - another lesson learnt the hard way). I think I might go 'missing' again until I've sorted it out and organised everything. Not being able to find anything I had to forgo the 'Summer' option, although she is barefoot and wouldn't being doing that in the middle of winter would she?


I used the Sugar Nellie image Penpal, coloured her with Copics, cut her out and mounted her on silver card. The papers are SU, the flourish stamp is Magnolia (stamped in blue but actually turned out looking more grey) and the rose from Papirloftet. The border is cut with an EK Success punch and the leaves from Woodware.

Fantastic card Heather and I really admire that you've managed to do one at all under the circumstances! I love the image, she looks very summery to me and your colouring is just stunning. I love the punched border and that gorgeous flower and charm. Hope you get sorted soon sweetie, I don't envy you all those boxes to unpack at all but it'll be worth it when you have everything organised. Have a good weekend, hugs, Chris xx
