Happy Moments with Colour

Happy Sunday, we have had some dreadful weather today, rain, rain and more rain...........so a colouring I went.... to cheer myself up.


First I tackled the Tim Holtz tag for the month of March........first created the mosiac butterflies  which didn't turn out brilliantly although great fun to do...........then embossed the tag..........mmmmmm, oooh I need some colour as its so dull and grey outside.........so from there on end the tag took a life of its own...........and turned out nothing like Tim's......... but would fit in nicely for the Pan Pastel challenge this week.

Stamps usedRogue Redhead Designs and a freebie stamp from Craft Stamper
Other Products: Craft Concepts Embossing Folder, Distress Inks by Tim Holtz, Papermania Chipboard, Cat from  Hobbycraft and silk flowers from Home Bargains.  3D clear gloss, Marabu Metallic Liner, and The Ultimate Glu.


The Cake Ladies card were freebies from Freubles Freebies and the background is alcohol inked; plus two ribbons, thought this made a fun card.

Thank you for popping in and hope you all have a great week with your arts and crafts.  Be seeing you shortly.  Have to watch Dancing on Ice first.  Take care, hugs Annette x

It's gorgeous and I prefer yours Nettie. I think Tim's is gloomy. Thank you for the lovely burst of colour - that would brighten anyone's day. :)

Beautiful, Netty and such wonderful colour to brighten your grey day. It was pretty much the same here, too - cold, drab and miserable, although the sun did try to shine for a while and the sky tonight is beautifully clear and bright with stars so clear. Cold, though. Have a great week x
