Two Challenges ...

Good morning to you all ... I am still not feeling too well and it seems that my Pilates teacher is also sick so class is cancelled ... I couldn't have made it anyway but really hate letting anyone down 
So I have been able to sit in my little room here and do a couple of things ... first up is a card for this weeks challenge at CR84FN ... this is the colour inspiration picture ...



I have to say that I am so glad I did this challenge ... these are not normally colours I would immediately reach for but when I put them together ... I was amazed at how much I liked them ... more than I could imagine ... so here's my take ...


It's like vitamin C for the soul! (Lol)
I had all these things in my stash ... just waiting to be picked for this challenge .. I have no idea where the papers are from but the one with the little butterfly was from Lynnda and the buttons are from The Ribbon Girl ... 


So what do you think?

2nd Challenge

I  have a note book to share which I made for the challenge at Lilybean's Paperie which is based on another beautiful picture courtesy of the incredible Leslie at A Creative Mint ...


How could I not make my own notebook ... based on this? So here we are ...


A mixture of digital (Vintage Findings by Jen Allyson) printed directly onto cardstock with some Tim Holtz (grey paper) ... a scrap of MF paper and some from my stash ... 


I distressed the small papers too ... the white flower I crocheted and added a tiny cream one to it ... butterflies and lace from my stash too 


Guess I need to do a pen to go with it now ... 

I hope you have a lovely day ... It's still freezing here ... (minus 4C tonight ... Brrr)

Till soon
