My Sweet Sunflower

Me again! No posts for nearly a week and then three in one day! I’m hoping yesterday is a little better than today….Mr 7 was quite poorly yesterday Sad smile

Anyhoo back to the point. It’s time for a new challenge over at Colour Crazy Challenge and this week we are being sponsored Star Stampz.

I’ve used the super cute My Sweet Sunflower to make a Birthday card for the children to give to my Mum:

    Bunny with Daffodil (4)

    Morning all. Over at A Gem of a Challenge it’s the Pinks turn to host the challenge and we have a fabulous theme of ‘Favourite Colour Combo’. Now ask me this today and I’ll give you one answer and ask me again tomorrow and I’ll likely give you another answer! There are just too many colour combos that I love.

    Anything with Kraft is always a favourite though so I’ve used orange and Kraft for this card using  Bunny with Daffodil:
