More Chocolates and a basket.

Well, this is my last scheduled post.....and as it pops up I should be coming in to land at Gatwick Airport. (boo hoo! the end of another fantastic holiday). Hopefully I'll be able to catch up with what has been going on for the last two weeks when I arrive home.

Today it was my choice over at the Colour Create Challenge and true to form, I've picked one of my favourite combinations. Purple, Aqua and White. The optional extra I picked was swirls. Oh boy! Have the DT done me proud or what? Their creations with this colour combo are the most gorgeous ones I've seen for ages.

I've made a christmas basket and a card to go with it. The basket is a template from Waltzing Mouse designs. I used Anna Griffin Swirls and DoCrafts Joyeaux Noel bauble stamps. I kept the design really simple so that I could make a few of these cards as a standby at Chrismas.

I'm entering these makes into the following challenges:

Craftalicious - Anything Goes

If the Shoe Fits - Any Holiday

Inky Impressions - Anything Goes
One Stitch At A Time - Embelish It
Papercutz Challenge - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - Anything Goes

Please hop over to the Colour Create Challenge blog to see the amazing cards made by my wonderful teamies.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
