The Pink Elephant Challenge

Morning folks....after a quick jig round with Mr Dyson yesterday the cubbyhole was looking all sparkly clean again but it didn't last for very long once I got back into the crafty swing....why do I always start off by putting all those pesky little squares from the 3D foam pads and scrappy bits and pieces carefully into the bin for the first five minutes and then caution is thrown to the wind and it's back to being a big mess....however would I cope without my trusty Mr D who makes light work of swallowing everything up.
I was looking for a challenge to enter that my crafty wilderness brain could cope with....and lo and behold the challenge this week over at The Pink Elephant ticked all my crafty boxes and it's been far too long since I 've joined in the fun with Ella and the girls


Background Hero Arts: S5213..Dots and Flowers
stamped in TH Distress Ink....Old Paper
Image: Hero Arts: K5376....Hydrangea
Sentiment: Hero Arts: CL140... Thinking of You
Twill Ribbon....Stampin Up
Heart Charm from my grungy box

What's on the agenda today....well I am in a bit of a "see what takes my fancy mood"....so who knows but I will catch up with you all tomorrow for another instalment of What's On My Workdesk Wednesday.....the altered book is finished and is all ready to be filled with all my TH bits and bobs and there may be some more goodies arriving today.
Hugs Kath xxx

Very pretty card Kath, love the colours love the little heart and thanks! was thinking about my cookery box last night, brain a bit ehwall at the mo, was thinking of cookery background stamps but am thinking a cookery recipe page might do the trick do you think? Your invaluable crafty knowledge would be appreciated. nnalorac.x

Good morning Kath, love the card as usual, really nice colours. Statrd sorting out my ribbon box yesterday. Sorting them into colours instead of all mixed together. A nightmare of a job really. Must do rubber stamps next. Hugs and ticles behind the ears - Denise XX

Hi Kath,
Super card yet again, love the metal heart. Do you tear pages from your books?, just about to take some books to the Oxfam bookshop in town but maybe I ought to save a few but most are diet books which I no longer need. Hooray. so don't think would look right on a card somehow.
Though I must try to remember to look for some sheet music to craft with while I am there.
Have a good day can't wait to see the book tormorrow.

Big Hugs Carol xx

Love your card as always! The colours look great. And I completely understand about the 3d pads, the backs tend to turn up all over the house!

Wowsers, I love brown, much underrated colour in my opinion! This is great, so elegant. Looking forward to seeing the box tomorrow, my WOYWW will also contain boxes to be altered but I've never done this before so looking for help!!


The boy has been quiet, is he behaving himself?

Kat said...

This is gorgeous Kath. I never seem to think of using colours like this. I have that stamp coloured in lilacs and green but it hasn't made it onto a card yet.

I find these little squares everywhere too. I need a bin not a poly bag lol!!
