Two Hello's, One Goodbye, and a card

I've been chasing my tail this week. Sometimes you get weeks like that, don't you? Last night I spent the whole evening doing the Colour Create post and then doing my own post on here. Why did it take so long; I find it hard to say farewell to a DT teamie, that's why. And that's exactly what we're doing today. Our wonderfully talented Dena has decided that it is time for her to move on and step down from the DT. Boo Hoo! We will all miss her. I've really appreciated everything that she had done for the challenge; all her time and those fabulous creations - Thank you Dena. Here's wishing you the best of luck in everything you do in the future sweetie.

I do have some good news too. I've been lucky enough to secure 2 new fantastically talented ladies for the Colour Create DT: SYLVIA from Norway and KERRY from Australia. I adore their styles and their blogs are a joy to browse around so I hope you'll stop by and leave them some love.

Our mega talented Di set the challenge for us and she picked this amazing inspiration picture!
Isn't it wonderful?

The colours this week are: GREENS/OLIVE GREEN, BROWN, CREAM and BLACK. The optional extra is LEAVES. (I loved using these colours)

So, the card I made uses one of my favourite Lili of the Valley images. I just adore glittering this one up.

I'm entering this into the following Challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - R is for Ribbons
Annabelle Stamps - Say it with love
Card Makin' Mama's - Something Green
Challenge Up Your Life - Fairy Tales
Crafty Pad - Use A Ribbon (it's the green bit in the centre)
Lili of the Valley - Say it with flowers
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Sketch Saturday - the Sketch
Tellen's Place - Embellish, embellish, embellish
Tuesday Throwdown - Use Your Scraps (These all came out of my scrap box - you'll see some of the same papers on this card)

The sponsor over at Colour Create is Michelle's Scrapbooking and she's given us two fab embossing folders as the prize. Michelle is supporting a card drive for a very poorly little girl and you can read all about it on her blog.

Hope you join in with us this week and please take a look at the amazing creations that uber talented Colour Create DT have made. Please stop by and say hello to the new ladies.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
