You may need your sunglasses

I wanted to cover several challenges with one card - big challenge in itself. So I picked the Just Tracys Crafts Challenge, Creative Inspirations Challenge and Sketch Saturday. Well, the creative inspirations challenge was to just use yellow and white (you can use skin and hair colours as well, otherwise that would be just weird!), this was a perfect opportunity for me to use my new Spectrum Noir pens as there is a yellow set - so armed with only 6 pens I set to with this lovely Molly Blooms freebie stamp from a magazine a while ago. Finding yellow backing papers was a bit more difficult, but with a bit of digging I found a DCWV 12x12 pad, Nana's Kitchen, which a lovely yellowy/orange paper with the hearts and flowers, the paper strip across the middle is from some freebie papers, again from a magazine. I used my lovely EK Success border punch to create the flower strips. The sentiment is a LOTV and everything else is from my stash.

I started this card while my lovely friend Alison was round on Saturday - I always have a great time when Alison is over and manage to get loads of ideas, so hopefully I should be able to create more (fingers crossed).

Anyway, I really ought to go and get ready for work - the start of another week, hey ho...

Rachel the finished card is lovely.

Wished we could have had more time on Saturday but well what with the hair dresser turning up late and then my forms that you helped with (Thank you so Much) did not leave a lot of time for crafting. Hope to see you again soon. Love Alison xxxx
