Crafty Catz DT - Colour Combo

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all well. Right at this moment, I am enjoying the peace and quiet while the kids are all at school and will be over all too quickly because today is a half day, lol. Steven goes in the mornings now and I come home and do some blogging with my toast and tea and sit n relax - it's fab!
If you usually read my blog, you will know that I had a bit of a challenge going with my mum and my daughter, Kim. Well, we all did the fab sketch over at Lili of the Valley challenge and Kim's card was picked as the winner! I was well chuffed - even more than her, I think, lol. Her prize was a £10 gift voucher to spend in the shop...just in time for the new Christmas stamps! I was really pleased because it had actually been a whole year since Kim had made a card or posted on her blog and I hope it will help keep her interested.

Anyway, enough of me going on and on. It's Friday today and that means it's time for another challenge over at Crafty Catz. Thanks to everyone who took part in last weeks challenge and we hope to see you all again this week. Trish had the pleasure of choosing the theme this week and she has chosen a colour combo. So, she would like to see...

'Orange, Blue & Brown'

So, get your fingers moving, get you papers and card out and if, like me, this isn't your usual colours, get hunting through that unused stash, lol. I had no idea what I was going to do wit this one but actually, I loved it in the end and the colours all went really well with the image, I think.

Image: Apple Blossom Farm by Stamposaurus;
Medium: Watercolour Pencils;
Papers: Nutmeg 6x6 pad from Cosmo Cricket;
Tools: Cuttlebug; plain and scalloped circle Nesties;
Sentiment: Handwritten.

Truly Scrumptious: Fab Sketch (I didn't go for the optional extra but loved the sketch);
Create 4 Fun: Birthday Card;
Let's Ink It Up: Anything Goes with a twist of yellow ( straw and wheels);
Totally Papercrafts: Keep It Plain and Simple.

Well, think that's it. Have a busy weekend coming up... it's Jack's birthday on lot's to do. Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Make sure you check out the rest of the DT's fab projects and I will see you all tomorrow with another wee project
