...Hello everyone....

I hope your holidays were just wonderful. It's hard to believe it New Years Eve already. We are going to celebrate quietly with some of our friends for dinner. Too old to party hardy anymore...LOL!!

It's time again for the Colour Create Challenge.

This weeks challenge is hosted by the lovely Sharon and she has chosen a fresh and zingy combo...."LEMON and LIME".
Here is a little inspiration to get you going.

The extra option this week is "FLOWERS".
I hope you will have time to play along with us.

The adorable images I have used on my card are "Silly Goose".... image and sentiment.... "Daisy Garden Border" and "Katie's Bouquet" from "High Hopes".
The colours haven't quite come out the way they look in RL...maybe its time for a new camera!!

I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows and the white on the flower petals and the goose is H2o's icicle. I cut out some of the flowers and the goose and layered them and also used some of them for the corners. The dp is from Darcies. I also used some stickles on the little yellow flowers. The dots on the background is a stubby Stamps by Judith.

I hope you like it. Be sure to stop by the Colour Create blog as the DT have created some fabulous cards to inspire you too.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a very "Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!"


all products used on my card are from
The Rubber Room and online store.
