Crafting When We Can Colour Combo!

First off.. to all of you mothers out there!!!

***HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY***

And a very happy Sunday to you!! So it has been a pretty good week. I feel good, but the cough is hanging on LOL I gave whatever I had to Kevin, but he is feeling a bit better too. My youngest started getting sniffly too LOL! It was a busy week at work too, but a good :)  And now it is the weekend and it is suppose to rain on Saturday, Mother's Day on Sunday and I'm just going to relax and color... like a little kid!

Oh!! And I got a new toy! I got the Envelope Punch Board.. so I will have to try that out this weekend too!! And now when I have odd sized envelopes, I will be able to make them!! Woot!! hehehe  Alright.. have a great rest of your weekend everyone!!

Yesterday I worked in the garden, weeding. I'm so excited to see everything flowering! I can't wait to be able to pick some vegetables!! We should have cucumbers, tomatoes, peas, squash, zucchini, bell peppers (capsicum), peppers, radish, onion and green onions.

So, this morning, Kevin is sick. He sounds like he has what I had a couple of weeks ago. Some really awful stomach bug. He has been up all night. I'll have to watch him and make sure he is getting better or take him to the doctor. We'll see how that goes.

Now on to the new challenge at Crafting When We Can. We are on Challenge #44 which is a Colour Combo challenge. This challenge is to use Lime Green & Pink. Here is what I came up with for this challenge:


The awesome image I used is Poppy Set from Dilly Beans. I colored this image with Copic. I used a bunch of die cuts on this; Spellbinders and Memory Box. The dies are the ovals in the back of the girl, the label beneath her, the swirls under the ovals and the flowers in each of the four corners. I added the little buttons from my stash in the center and the hello is from a Doodlebug/Hampton Art stam set. I popped a few of the flowers and the bows in her hair. The green paper is from an old Club Scrap set and it is embossed with a wood grain. The front pink is glitter paper. The bright pink is just random card stock I have LOL

Copic:
R81, R83, R85
YG00, YG01, YG06, YG07, YG09
E21, E30, E31
