Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
What a gloriously sunny day we had yesterday, my goodness it helps lift the spirits, which I really needed, a culmination of events really got me down yesterday. I do think we all have those days, we can only absorb so much sadness, having a good old cry really does help. I had a terrible morning, firstly I couldn't (and still have not found the card I made for our Janet) I had put it somewhere safe and it turns out it was so safe that it's still secure! I was upset that I had to send a card that I hadn't made specifically for Janet. Anyway as I was tidying up the mess I made turning my craft room upside down looking for said card, I leaned forward to pick up a box and full force cracked my head on the corner 'pointy' part of a wooden shelf, well Ladies that is all it took to open the floodgates, I pretty much bawled for the rest of the day, my heart was so bad that my fingers were tingly/numb. (I will add that a very upset daughter was part of my emotional day too, not just Janet's card) lol.
It doesn't seem possible that we only lost Paul's Dad last Saturday too, so much sadness 😢
We just popped and did some food shopping and then went home to finally sort the devastation in the garden.
Your Colour Combination Challenge Projects
Lilian has shared this lovely Blue & Green ( my favourite) card. The background Lilian created using a stencil and oxides painted over. That pretty flower Lilian has decoupaged, giving the look of incredible dimension. Having that single flower allows that stunning background to share the limelight!!
Such a lovely card Lilian, thank you so much for sharing it with us XXX
Here are my offerings for this week.
Both pieces were created for my first 'Art Journal' I made a couple of years ago.
The size of the journal is 8x8.

I cannot remember where I bought the embellishments from but the lace etc was from my stash. This is the first page of the journal.
It fits the Challenge and colour is Brown and Cream.
My second offering
is from Clarity of course. and the colour is Green,Peach and Yellow
Janet thank you so much for sharing two beautiful pieces from your Journal. That vintage mixed media page is just incredible, so much texture and detail. Then you have the stunningly simple Groovi page, no frills yet equally as beautiful.
Thanks again my lovely XXX

Maria thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge x I really love the cerise & Brown, it makes me think about Raspberry & Chocolate mousse. How effective are those twisted squares on your second card !!? I love this layout, thank you so much for the inspiration my lovely XXX
I did this black and white card over the weekend for a Salsa friend using a La Blanche Die.
Here’s another cc for this week - complimentary colours orange/blue
A pixie powder background a la SANDRA Burnt Orange and Lave Red and a SueW die cut in white and (cobalt) blue The stamp is one MARIA gave me.
Two fabulous cards for this weeks challenge Karen, thank you so much for taking part. I really love that Tango image, you can't beat a classic monochrome card fot style. Now that 'Happy' die shouts American Varsity style, My Sophie would love it, great for Man cards too, I love your Pixie powder background too so colourful! Thanks again Karen XXX
Sonia has shared two beautiful cards for our favourite colour combination challenge. Both are stunning, you are 100% Queen of Kraft Card !! .The first DL shaped card is perfect with the die cut corners and the beautiful filigree butterflies as finishing touches. It's those extra details that make Sonia's catds special, little things that you don't notice at first, like the perfect pierced edge down either side of the cream card and the perfectly placed sentiment.
Look at that incredible embossing on the second card, wow! So detailed ( you must use Gordon's magic spray Sonia 🤣) ! 😉😜!! Seriously though having such a beautiful embossed background you need nothing more than a simple embellishment.
Sonia your Kraft Cards are an inspiration to us all.
Thank you so very much XXX
