The Pink Elephant Challenge # 26

Morning Folks....I have the sneakiest feeling that there will be a bit of a challenge famine this week.....I have started to move some of my crafty stash into the new cubbyhole and I can tell it's going to be a bit of a mammoth task....so it could be the beginning of next week before I am firing on all cylinders again......but I did have time last night to make one challenge card.
The challenge this week from "The Pink Elephant" is a recipe from Ella's Kitchen......

3 Brads....1 Flower and Designer Paper

Paper: My Mind's Eye....Wild Asparagus
Flower: Wild Asparagus Decoupage Book
Stem & Leaves: Hero Arts....Artistic Borders Clear Stamp Set
Brads: Basic Grey
Sentiment: Hero Arts.....Thinking of You Clear Stamp Set
And talking of My Mind's Eye......have you seen their brand new Christmas Collections.....they are gorgeous and my local crafty shop will have them in stock in about 2 weeks.....why am I telling you this....you had better not get there before me and buy them all.....may just have to camp out overnight on the doorstep.

Merry Days of Christmas

Colourful Christmas
That's it for today folks....off for our morning stroll and where has the sun gone...and then back  to make cards for 6 little fellas who are starting school after the holidays...and it just seems like yesterday that they were born......catch up with you all tomorrow if I manage to sneak in another challenge card.....Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
