The Great Outdoors

Over on Happy Scrappers the theme this month is The Great Outdoors and as I have been playing with Craft Artist recently and sorting out some of the hundreds of photo's that we take and then just hang on to, I thought I'd enter with my squirrel layout which is an 8x8.  We had a day out at a local National Trust property and the squirrels were quite happy with everyone around, this one stayed still long enough to get quite a few pictures.

Pan pastels - 1st time use

I have just treated myself to some Pan pastels so I could see what all the fuss was about, I did wonder if I really needed anything else but just had to give in and have a go.  This is my first attempt at using them and have to say they are just as good as everyone has said.

The background is done with Hansa Yellow Shade and Permanent Red Shade, the die cuts are pink but coloured with the pastels. I had these cut out and thought I'd try to colour them and see if they go anything like the colour I wanted. The stamp I've used is one I bought from Caroline when I was at Port Sunlight, it is one of a duo of cosmos. I have added deco beads in the middle of the flower for a bit of interest, I may see if I can colour them with a promarker as I would rather they were black.

CD Sunday - Old MacDonald had a Farm

This is my card for our challenge over on CD Sunday, the theme this week is Old MacDonald had a Farm. I chose to use a lamb as my farm animal and this comes from the Plush Pals DVD by Ella's Designs.
I do hope you can come over and join us and give the team a bit of support.
