Getting back into the swing of things








Firstly can I thank all that participated in yesterdays Colour Blog Hop. I am finding these monthly challenges really fun. I have seen all the participants entries and they are all fab. I am, however, having problems with adding comments. So if you haven't received a comment from me, I'm sorry and I'm hoping to sort the problem out if I can. I think it may have to do with changing my e-mail address on Goggle and it not recognising it properly.



Secondly, after my wonderful holiday ( some photos to follow later) I am feeling refreshed and in a more creative frame of mind. I have so many projects I want to do and complete, and I have so many ideas. I just need to get myself organised abit more and then allow myself more time to create. I love this hobby of mine so I should dedicate all I can to it.




I thought I would show you the card I made for a friend who is going to give it to her aunt for her birthday. The image is a Lili of the Valley stamp (I am starting a little collection of the LOTV stamps of late) which I can't remember the name of at the moment coloured in with Pro-Markers. I have used my Martha Stewart butterfly stamp that my brother R kindly got me for my recent birthday and the lettering is American Crafts thickers.




I hope you like. I'm trying to build up my card making confidence and this card is the first card I have been commissioned to make. Abit scary, but my friend loved it.




Anyway, hopefully I will be back later to show you some photos from my holiday once I have decided from the very many I have are the best ones to highlight for you.




Have a good day and I will speak to you very soon




Love Lesley xx

Welcome friends to the September Colour Bloghop as organised by Amy. If you have arrived from here you are in the right place. Below is also the full list of participants this month








Can't believe a whole month has passed since the last one, and indeed it was my last post. Since then I've been to Kew Gardens in London, went on holiday to Slovenia and Italy, and it was 2nd wedding anniversary and my 37th birthday. More info on Kew and my holiday coming up in next few weeks.








This months colour scheme incorporates, yellow, pink, turquiose, mustard and black. I decided to use a black background to make the other colours pop off the page. I have used embellishments from the Make and Create Shop Spring to Life Kit ( I think it came out in April this year). The colours are absolutely perfect for this challenge. For the pink lettering I used colorbok Flavia range (an old kit I purchased years ago), yellow lettering is Carla Bell Pepper from Bella Blvd and the other lettering is Faded Blue by Cosmo Cricket.






See you next month when we have a Autumn/Fall theme with a choice of colour schemes






Please head here for the next participant in this blog hop
