Keesh's Colour Challenge


Hi, I hope you are all having a fabulous day because I am. I am having a child free day today which is a total rare occassion for me. One of my good friends has taken Josephine for the day and Nicholas is at school. It is very quite around here. I went for a lovely walk this morning around the farm, just me and my old dog, he thought it was great, just like old times, old being the operative word, we are both much slower these days....lol..... I have been in my craft room, stamping, I am preparing for class next weekend and I thought I would have a play along with Keesh's Colour Challenge. I was a bit unsure at first, the colours were Real Red, So Saffron, Regal Rose & Whisper White. But I can happily say that these colours do work together. I made a skirt for the bottom of my card with So Saffron DS Paper. I was meant to be making curtains for Josephine's room today, but I have all my sewing stuff packed away to make room for the stamping stuff, I just wasn't in the mood for it, but I guess it must have been still on my mind because it's appeared on the card....lol....The stamp set is Flower Fancy and I have used a Hat pin out of the pretties Kit. Must go and clean up my desk....you should see the mess.......
