Kim, from Off the Wall Craftiness has just started a colour challenge. It's Purple.
Kim says she's not a big fan of purple. I kinda like it. Have fun ;)

A bit of blog love arrived in the letter box! I was the lucky recipient of a card, in a giveaway that Kathy, over at Sweet Simplicitee, was having. It arrived in a padded envelope too, but look what was inside...complete with colour co-ordinating bakers twine no less ;)...
Isn't it lovely? Kathy has come to the rescue and let me share her piccie of it. Let's just say I was having a bad day on the photography front :P I reckon she's the queen of stamping, it looks so perfect.

Hope this brightens your day as you look at my wee bloggy today! I had honestly never come across this little positive thinking sentiment before, but I just love it.
The lovely Christine, from ToTheMoonAndBack, has kindly agreed to let me share this wonderful graphic with you.
Oh, and if you would like to order a tshirt, sizes run a little small, so please check your measurements. You can order one here.

Here's my entry in the Embellish Color Trends Challenge with Hearts. What do you think? It really *is* a bit of a challenge having to use certain colours, plus hearts. I will be using that gorgeous teal colour again :)
The "Be Mine" swag is a digital stamp from Tiffany Doodles. It's in her Sentiments range. I had never used a digital item like this - but they're great. Just download the item, do any colour changes, print on card, and trim. Easy!
I went around the edges of the card stock with a Versa colour cube, in Bark.
I used my Martha Stewart Scallop Dot, Border edge punch. Love it.
Anna's Craft Cupboard has these at a really great price btw ;) The neutral/brown coloured card, is Botany. This card stock has a recycled component, and is 230gsm in weight. Plaza DJ really helped me out with that! And I'm not on commission - honestly! ;)
A behind the scenes look at the making of this card. I gathered together any bits and pieces that might be useful, and just had a bit of a play around. I was looking for anything I had for that amazing colour combination: Hot Pink, Deep Red, Teal, and Olive Green. Yes, that's the "Marrtha Stoo-wart" border punch in the bottom right there ;)

The princess's dress was cut from a crust of bread, cheese for the face, carrot trimmed with a cookie cutter for a crown. I just traced on a face with a toothpick dipped in some choccy sauce from the cupboard.
In between the layers is a little butter, but you could use any filling you like.
And what would be on the bottom mattress.. but a pea of course :)
