Allsorts #35 ~ Brown & Pink

Good Morning

This week at Allsorts it is Kirsten's turn to set the challenge and she has chosen a colour challenge of Brown & Pink. This is one of my favourite colour combos and meant I could use my favourite Basic Grey papers (Bittersweet). Kirsten is offering a fab prize this week of 5 Quickutz embossing dies.




Image ~ Coco and little hearts (Digistamp Boutique)
Papers ~ BG Bittersweet
Flowers ~ Brown (Prima), Pink (Petaloo) and Prima pearl





I am also entering this card for the DT Call at Just Cute Bears which is a new challenge blog dedicated to those of us who have a love for bears. Ever since I have been a little girl I have loved bears and this has now extended into my crafting because I have large collection of bear stamps! The DT call will close tomorrow (17th Jan) at 3 pm so if you would like to be considered for the DT you need to be quick.

It's raining here today so hopefully the snow will all finally disappear.  We are off to visit my mum shortly because it's her birthday today.  Mum has recently got into cardmaking so we have bought her a Cuttlebug as a joint present with my Nan.  I have also bought her a few extra crafting goodies and popped them in a giftbag (stamps, flowers, brads, Cuttlebug embossing folders).  Hope she likes her presents.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Gorgeous card Lisa. One of my fave colour combos too and I also have a love for bears. Hope your Mum had a lovely Birthday. How great to be able to share this hobby or should that be obsession,lol! Will check out the new challenge and good luck with the DT. I can't cope with applying for any more just at the moment,need t get to grips with one first, though would love to design with bears so maybe in the future. Marianne x
