Favourite Colours at Creative Inspirations

Good Morning to you! How are you doing? I'm feeling happy to have my time back today but sad because my gorgeous girls are back at school - it won't be too long though before its time for half term so I have to content myself with that ..... and boy do I need that time back!!!!

I took Lucy to the pictures yesterday to see the 'One Direction' movie - it surprised me - I thought I was going to hate it but I actually came out of it thinking what a nice bunch of lads they are! So she's won me over a little.

Over at Creative Inspirations  (cinspirations) this week's challenge is to Use Your Favourite Colour Combination!

This week's prize is from MY MUMS CRAFT STOP who are offering a £10 GIFT CERTIFICATE to one Winner and a 10% DISCOUNT TO EVERYONE who takes part!


There is also another prize from our other sponsor KENNY K DOWNLOADS who will be giving another winner 4 IMAGE OF THEIR CHOICE!



I used he image called Kitty Catastrophe that you can get from here.





My fave colour combo for this card is red, black and grey. I think she looks pretty snazzy! I've coloured her with promarkers and cut her out with a spellbinders die before inking up the die edge with Distress Ink. The wording is cut from a brittania die and the diamante swirl is from the Hobby House.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

LEJlejdesignschallengeblog: Something Shiny
PTWpapertakeweekly: AG
Bearly Minebearlymine-challenges: AG
Hobby House Challengehobbyhousechallenge: Hobby House Artists

Here's some more holiday snaps.

 This one was on a walk at Lands end - I used the self timer on my camera - hence the funny angle. Penny is sticking her tongue out - she was a nightmare on this walk - she just can't seem to get pleasure from it - but hey ho!!! We do so we'll battle on!!!
This one is back at the theme park - Lucy and her daddy are enjoying the teacup ride! Talking of Shaun - he's going to be on the telly soon on the One Show - he's got a few minutes slot talking about liquid helium which is what his research is into! Should be in the next couple of days! We're very excited about it!

Thanks for looking and I hope to see you again soon xx

Hugs

  2. Fabulous card Rachel, I love the image and wonderful colours.
    Love your photos. How exciting, Shaun being on the TV, please let us know when you know the date so I can watch it.
    My children go back to school and college today, I think I hate it more than them. Never mind, it will soon be Christmas!

  3. fantastic card -brilliant image and colouring,love the die and distressed edges-beautiful photos and i think the ones where they are not at their best are just a little bit better than the perfectly posed ones especially if they are all chocolately or muddy
