Making a Scene!

Hi there!! First day of the week gone already!

So, I got iced in at home today...luckily I had my work laptop with me and so I was able to work from home. The road outside my house was basically an ice skating rink...I could have charged people to have a go!!

Sooo....those fab Cupcake Craft Challenge ladies have an awesome challenge for us this week...they want us to create a scene...how cool! If you need some inspiration pop over to their blog and see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created....

I decided to combine an old faithful stamp with something a little floral....

 
Normally the pretty lady is enjoying her cup of tea at the table on her own, today I decided she needed some pretty flowers to make her smile some more (although if you ask me she looks like she's really enjoying that cup of tea!!).
 
I've stamped both images and coloured them with my Promarkers. You'll notice that my colour palette is slightly limited in this card...thats because Love to Create has asked us to share our favourite three colours with them. Everyone knows that I LOVE purple...but I also like a bit of pink....but today I decided to shun my inner girlieness and go with purple, green and blue for my favourite colours (if I was allowed a fourth I'd definitly add pink in!!). I think these three colours all work so well together.
 
As well as the two challenge blogs already mentioned I'd also like to enter this card over at:
 
Allsorts - flower power
 
Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created!
 
Thanks for popping by today,

I saw it on MIM. This is a nice card. Reminds me that we need to take time for ourselves with a cuppa and a little goody to go with it.
