Finally got this finished, as soon as I saw Kellie's challenge, especially when she said you could use any stamp (thankyou), the brain went into overdrive, a Christmas Challenge, being a Pomme the Aussie weather at the moment makes it feel more like Christmas, than in December. Went to Leonie's on Saturday and she kindly let me stamp off some of her snow globe stamp set, which came in handy for this Challenge.

finally attempted my first colour challenge, from Color Throwdown, Challenge 49 or (CTD49),
colors to use are Groovy Guava, Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip, sad as I am I was quite excited as I had all these colors, and some idea half sprung to mind (using one of my fav sets) then whilst making I had the idea of the flower, (hawaii was in my head) anyway below is what I have done, I have embossed the 'Cheers for You', and used crystal effects on the drink and fruit, must say the flower was fiddly but fairly pleased with the result (its a start). Anyway bye for now, happy crafting, take care X:)

Firstly I Versamarked the stamp then used Night of Navy and the heat tool, which doesn't show up too much in the photo (will try again in daylight tomorrow) then used So Saffron, Summer Sun, Only Orange, Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence (had to get some shade of purple in LOL), then Night of Navy, Bordering Blue, Ballet Blue & Brocade Blue for the Sky, finally Always Artichoke and Old Olive for the grass, this was done using sponges. Used Bright Orange and Night of Navy for the card stock, maybe I should have used Always Artichoke but wanted something Bright. Open to any suggestions on how to better this, from you experts out there.
Rosanna and Morgan are having another Xmas card making session and some real creative effort is being made as they want them to go on the blog, looks like I have more competition, may even have to set them up a blog of their own.
This one is off Emma again in my favourate colours and another beautiful card, we made this at one of Leonies Workshops, boy did we keep her busy that night, she gave us a choice of which cards we could make, she never sat down all night in between cutting and helping us, I am sure this was one of the first times I had done two stamping. I haven't parted with mine for obvious reasons, now I can.
Hi, what a fantastic afternoon/evening we had, I didn't get to make too many cards, as what I was wanting to use was being used or not where it should be, it was fun working with Rosanna and Morgan, they both have their own ideas, Morgan did some wonderful sponging, Rosanna did some beautiful colouring with the water colour pencils, then using the blender pen, Morgan had decided to become camera shy all of a sudden! We didn't get to keep Morgan to long electronics was calling, no competition, LOL. Here they are in action.
Yes he is under there somewhere!
These two are Morgan's creations he only managed to make three, but did put a lot of effort into
Did a stupid thing and dropped the camera last night, Morgan and I collided whilst trying to take pictures, boy was I sick I had only been saying earlier to keep the strap on (should practice more of what I preach), anyway the lense won't go back in, the camera shop said probably more expensive to fix than buy a new one, we are going away at the weekend so a new camera had to be bought (old one only 6 months old), anyway another lesson learned. Here they are hard at work.
Bye for now and thanks for looking in, take care and happy crafting whatever it maybe X:)
