a new colour combo for me-Colour Create challenge 64 DT card-Sharons choice-choice of three fruit colours+Mojo Monday 179+DYSU challenge

Good morning everyone...there's still no sign of the elusive stamp, do you think the Magnolia stamps in the box come to life at night, make a mess of my craft room then hide maybe...I really must stop drinking herbal tea you know lol...I know I will find it somewhere I have put it for safe keeping its just remembering where I stashed it but the good news is at least my mojo has come out from under my bed at last...my card for today is an unusual combination for me its for our new challenge at Colour Create...our wonderful Sharon made a brilliant choice this week, three fruit colours...I chose Melon, Kiwi and Banana, the papers are from Prima, lush colours aren't they and the beautiful image is from Sugar Nellie and called Verity, I coloured her with Distress inks and used some yellow ribbons and a saddle stitched ribbon bow, the fab ticket sentiment is made with a clear ticket stamp and a Friend stamp combined, the papers and ticket stamp are from Simon says Stamp...I finished with some pearls...the amazing sketch is from Mojo Monday, I love their sketches and Im enetering it in the DYSU anything goes challenge...thanks to everyone who joined in my colour combo last week and I hope you will give it a go again this week, when you have time pop on over to Colour Create and have a look at what the rest of our amazing team made...I'm off to the Supermarket with my Dad today oh and coffee too of course so we can read the papers and have a few rants about the news and put the world to rights, now if only they would put us in charge of a few countries we would all be sorted lol...have a wonderful day everyone

OH MY WORD.......how stunning is this Verity looks soooo beautiful hun your colouring is just amazing she really does look awesome. Love the colour combo.
Magnolia do come alive at night & not just them think of Toy Story in the craft world....now think of Pinky & the Brain....Thats right the little rubber people are trying to take over the world...1st they start by messing up our crat rooms at night then they start hiding....who knows what will be next!! I couldnt possibly make the mess I do in my craft room....I'm erm.....too good!!!
