Well Hello to You All

Long time no see as they say.

It's good to be back, but my hand is still not fully functional - I'm still struggling to colour as my finger still goes into spasm, but not as bad as it has been in the past :o) and hopefully I will be back to normal towards the back-end of next week so keep your fingers crossed for me.

I am thrilled to announce that I have been one of the very lucky ladies chosen to be on The Hobby House Design Team and today is challenge day for the brand new Hobby House Challenge Blog.  The lucky winner will get a massive £25 of Hobby House vouchers to spend in their shop - yum yum.

So, to get you started this month's challenge is "Anything Goes" - easy peasy huh - and what's more o this occasion you don't have to use The Hobby House items to be in with a chance to win and you must check out what the very talented DT ladies have made for you HERE.

Here is the card I have made:

I love these Kenny K pre-coloured die-cut toppers which means no colouring for me and no pain in my hand - yay!

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Papers:  Basic Grey - Dawson Kit
Pre-Coloured Die-Cut Topper:  The Hobby House - Kenny K - Totally Awesome
Alphabet Die:  Tim Holtz Alterations - Typeset (Jill might still have this is stock so give her a call)

I have outlined the papers and image with Stormy Sky Distress Ink

And that's it as they say.  I hope you will be able to join in the fun with us over at The Hobby House Challenge Blog.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Ta ta for now.

Hi Hazel..

Glad to see you back - and hope that hand gets better and better... take care not to overdo it though... best to get it fully right before you do lots of colouring!

This is a fab card for The Hobby House.. no surprise that you're on the DT as you made such fabbie samples for the C & C shows! Love the colours you've used with the pre cut topper... so perfect for a skateboarder!!

Not sure what's happening with TG - hope Net is OK... did she ever find her birds??

Big hugs
Christine x
