Spring Shades.... and yes, it is me, using yellow!!!

Hi Bestest Blogging Buddies

Yes.... that's right!  Me..... using yellow..... can you believe it??  This week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss called for Spring Shades...  sooooooo, avoiding my usual favourite colour (and we all know what that is......), I opted to use the colours of the daffodils in my garden (at least the ones that keep on trying to flower but keep getting met with nasty frost...)

But I've got to say, this really goes against the grain for me.....  and even for my lovely OH, who muttered 'hmmmm'... when I showed this to him.... yes, he's a pink lover too..

Anyway...  She's here, she's springlike... and then, when I uploaded,  I noticed that most of my teamies have gone for pink!! GRRRRR!  

I got the idea for this design from my lovely blogging pal Mary J who did a card using this type of layout last week.. I think I'll be using it again Mary.. thank you for the inspiration!

  • Image - Butterfly Lucy from All That Scraps
  • Paper - Pink Petticoat
  • Colouring - Copics
  • Sentiment - MFT Doodle Garden Springtime Wishes
  • Die - Square Stitched Mats - Lil Inkers
  • Ribbon and glitter from stash
Our generous sponsor this time is Crafters' Companion.... so why don't you pop over to the Totally Gorjuss challenge blog and check out my fab teamies' (PINK grrr!) creations...  then see what you can come up with in Spring Shades...   For now, I'm putting my yellow pens and ribbon away... to only see light of day again when I'm doing flower centres!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend..
Hugs and Happy Crafting

PS... Mary.... look, still no pink...  think there maybe overload next week!!
