Lemon and Lime

Happy New Year to everyone! Here's wishing you all the best in 2010 and I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas too.

I've only just noticed that my Colour Create card post didn't automatically appear when it should have. Sorry folks but here it is now.

The colour theme over at Colour Create this week is one to blow away those winter cobwebs and help us to start to think about fresh, spring colours. The colours I chose are LEMON and LIME and the optional extra is SPRING or SUMMER FLOWERS.

I had to take my photo by electric light so the lemon looks a bit more cream than lemony, but the flash went off on one photo (below) and that shows a bit more like the true colours on the card. I was a lucky girl because Santa sent me another one of those stamps I had been meaning to get for a long time. Thanks Paula - I love this Sarah Kay stamp and she coloured up beautifully in Promarkers.The papers are from K&Co, Tim Coffey Daffodil pad. All other embellishments are things I already had in my craft room.

I hope you'll find time to join in with the challenge and as always you really should take a look at the awesome creations from the rest of our amazing design team.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
