ASOS meets LOTV, WOJ and a colour challenge

Well, here we are at another weekend. I just can't believe how quickly these days and weeks are flying by! This weekend we are moving my daughter out (for the second time). She's got a new job near Brighton and she moves into her flat today. How exciting for her. There are keys to pick up, beds arriving, things to collect from Argos (plates, glasses, saucepans, bins etc). Cleaning products and food to buy. Phew! Exhausting! And at the end of it.....I'll be an 'empty nester' again. :( Anyway, I'll be showing the New Home card I made her over the next few days.

But, today it is the One Stop Craft Challenge and, because my DT card also fits the following challenges I am entering it into:

A Spoonfull of Sugar - the sketch layout (it is fantastic!)

Lili of the Valley - Valentines

Whiff of Joy - Love

Crafty Calendar Club - Love and Friendship

The challenge that our talented Suzi has set is to use the colours

Apple Green, Chocolate and Clotted cream.

What a fantastic colour combo this is. I had a wonderful time using these colours, so thanks for a brilliant challenge Suzi. Here is my card:

Items used
Image: Whiff of Joy
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps Holiday Sentiments
Swirls: Creative Expressions
Papers: A mix of Bearly mine and Basic Grey
Flowers: Prima (both the hydrangeas and the roses)
Ribbon: Celebrate
Distress inks: Skin: Antique Linen and Tattered Rose. Hair: Antique Linen, Mustard Seed and Scattered Straw. Clothes: Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Brushed Corduroy.
Papermill dark brown card, Pearls

The prize for the winner of this challenge is £25 to spend at the One Stop Craft Store. Don't forget that Shelley also has some Blog candy that you can still enter today.

Please take a look at the amazing creations that the rest of the talented DT have made.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
