A touch of Colour xx

Hello all

Where is the sun??
I think I might have spoke too soon and chased it away ekkkk bad me! Tho its still warm outside and DRY! Thats the main thing, its dry and perfect washing on the line weather!!

Do you remember the card I made for my mummy?? The little perfume bottle?? Well my wee granny liked it so much she wanted me to make one for my auntie in New Zealand too! So of course I couldn't wait to get it started, but what colour to do?? I couldn't decide at first but then I spied some papers that were just PERFECT

These fab bright fun papers from Basic Grey ( I think, can't remember now lol) look fab with the fab  wee Hannah Lynn image coloured with Spectrum Noirs

I just love these cards from Sandras Scrapshop and how they can suit anyone and look fab in any colour! They wee box inside is perfect for a gift card or even a small gift of maybe jewellery but the card makes a fab gift itself!

I would like to enter the following challenges 
 Crafty Cardmakers - Pearls and Gems
Not Just Cards - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Faces
Fussy and Fancy - Birthdays
Glitter and Sparkle - One for the ladies

Will I've lots to do this week and taking yesterday off to go lunching with the mummy was bad for my work timetable! Tho we all need a day off now a again heeee
