Crafting When We Can Challenges #50 - Colour Combo - Lemon and Lime + DT call

I can't believe how quickly time is flying.  We've been in our temporary offices at work for 2 weeks while our office is having a complete refit.  It should be a lot more comfortable to work in when it's finished.  Hopefully we'll have air conditioning and a radiator or 2 instead of a window that only opens 6" and a coat and gloves.  Then we just have to merge 2 departments into 1 as well as learning a new system.  The following few months should be fun!!  

To add to this my printer still isn't completely well and my laptop keys seem to be sticking (this could be all the crumbs in the keyboard, OH is going to have a look at this for me in the next few days).  These problems are making doing any digital crafting quite difficult so as soon as I managed to get a print of my image I used some of the numerous pages of card I have in my stash.

We are having a DT call over at the CWWCC blog so hop over and leave a comment with a link to one of your projects so we can hop over and have a look.

The image I was generously given to use is #555 - Paige.  I used some card I bought from Lidl.  There are 25 different colours at 270gsm and they cost about £1.99 so I bought 5 pads. It's really nice card and makes great card bases and punches like a dream with the punches I have.  My card is larger than I normally make it, it's 8" x 8".  I had to make it this size as I wanted to use my new punches that cut a 6" x 6" mat.  It is a Lucky 8 punches by We Are Memory Keepers.  The small pearls are from Home Bargains and the image was coloured with Copic Markers.  The little tag is from HOTP and says when life give you lemons make (don't know why they didn't finish the phrase but I assume they knew you would finish it in your head).  The colours are a lot more vibrant in real life than they are on this photo.  

Hop over to the Challenge blog and join in our wonderful Challenge or if you want to be considered for the DT leave us a comment so we can visit and see your work.
