We're just back from a few days away in Glencoe with the caravan and of course the dog! The weather was amazing, lots of sunshine and a nice breeze a times to keep you cool. We had plenty walks, food and relaxing, the perfect time away!

Today I wanted to share with you a wee card I made with one of Sandra Scraps templates

I used my Spectrum Noirs to colour the image
Skin - TN2, FS2, FS4, FS6, FS8
Hair - TN9, TN7, EB3
Dress - IB2, IB3, GT2 and brown EB1, EB2

I would like to enter the following Challenges

I think I might have spoke too soon and chased it away ekkkk bad me! Tho its still warm outside and DRY! Thats the main thing, its dry and perfect washing on the line weather!!

Do you remember the card I made for my mummy?? The little perfume bottle?? Well my wee granny liked it so much she wanted me to make one for my auntie in New Zealand too! So of course I couldn't wait to get it started, but what colour to do?? I couldn't decide at first but then I spied some papers that were just PERFECT

These fab bright fun papers from Basic Grey ( I think, can't remember now lol) look fab with the fab  wee Hannah Lynn image coloured with Spectrum Noirs

I just love these cards from Sandras Scrapshop and how they can suit anyone and look fab in any colour! They wee box inside is perfect for a gift card or even a small gift of maybe jewellery but the card makes a fab gift itself!
