hands up who thought I would have a go - Mo's Dreamteam Blog hop + Colour Create challenge 71 Brown, Cream and White

Good morning everyone...ok I'm sorry I grossed you all out yesterday and hands up everyone who knew I would try plucking my legs...yep I tried the legs and decided I would rather not thank you, will stick to the Immac for now, it bloody hurts like hell, that woman must have been a little strange to do that and the other area...eeeuuurrrggghhh makes me cringe just thinking about it but must admit I wish I had taken a photo to show you lol...right today's card is for our Mo's Digital Pencil Dreamteam's blog hop which this month is our lovely Bea's choice and she chose a splash of the gorgeous turquoise and thank goodness I managed to combine my card with our new challenge at Colour Create challenge too as I really didn't have to make two cards...our Colour Create challenge was the fabulous Sylvia's choice and she chose Brown, Cream, White and a added extra of a colour of your choice and/or Buttons and flowers...of course I chose turquoise as my +1 colour or it wouldn't have worked would it ...ohhhhh I'm on a ramble today....right focus Mina...if your following the Dreamteam's hop you should have arrived her from the amazing DEBBIE'S blog who I'm sure had something gorgeous to show you and if you havent you can always pop on over to BEA'S to start at the beginning, I used the fab Perfection Mo's image coloured with distress inks and teamed her up with the Vintage Stove, I love this Stove it reminds me one my Daughter had when she was small only hers was bright red...the stunning brown papers are from My Minds Eye Lush range and the other is an off cut I finished with some gorgeous ribbon, a few buttons and a bronze heart charm...if your off on the hop don't forget to leave a comment on everyones blog as you have a chance of winning one of two random $5 gift vouchers from our wonderfully generous Mo...your next stop on the hop is the fab KERTTU...when you have time don't forget to hop on over to Colour Create to check out what the rest of our fab DT made for the challenge, the sketch I used is from Create4fun challenge and I'm also entering this for the A Spoon Full of Sugar Anything Goes challenge too...have a wonderful day everyone, I'm off to the Supermarket today with my wonderful Dad who I missed to bits while I was away...for a coffee and a catch up
