Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 28 April 2013


Good morning to you all, I wish I could say it was lovely and sunny here in Spain but as the saying goes
'The Rain In Spain is falling mostly in Benidorm'

Another Sunday so another challenge from us at
Sadly this is MARGARET's last week with us as a Guest Designer and she has blown us away with her beautiful designs and this week is no exception.
 We hope to have her back later in the year. Thank you Margaret for your creations.
Do take a look at her blog, you won't be disapointed.

It is the turn of our lovely Wendy to choose  your challenge for the week, no surprises in guessing the theme.

Wendy and I think alike as we both have a love of this particular colour so it was easy for me to prepare my card for you and you can see it below


6x6 Scalloped Card for the base
Lovely backing paper from PAM LEFORS - if you haven't visited Pam you should as she designs lovely kits and quite frequently does special offers.
My main design is from JEMS DESIGNS
If  you have seen any of the shows on Create & Craft you will know how beautiful their CD's  are.
This design is from 'Yesterday's Dreams' CD - one of the many delights on this CD.
I took it into CAP2 and played around with various sections until I was happy with my design.
 It is printed onto Glossy Photo Paper
There are 5 different layers on the card, however I am sending this through the post and to keep down the postal charges I made it flat.

I hope you will have fun and join us again this week, we love to visit your blog's and leave comments.
Just remember to use a CD and say which is it you have used.

Take a look at the challenge blog as my fellow teamie's have come up trumps again.

That beautiful umbrella looks more like a parasol than the heavy duty one you seem to need over there at the moment. It's a beautiful card Christine - and weren't we lucky to be able to use our favourite colour this week.

Sorry to hear you're having rain Christine, I won't gloat as the others have already said what it's like here today. Great card and lovely colours.
