TPE favorite colours meets Carol's Sketch Fun and Charisma Cardz

I hope this weekend is treating you well.
I have been indoors safely tucked away from the sun,
and the crafting is coming along
now that my tot has fallen asleep.
I have made a card for The Pink Elephant
where the challenge was to create something
using our favorite colour combination.
This was HARD!!!!
I have many favorite colour combos,
in fact, there are only a few pairings that I don't like...
So it came down to choosing,
and I went with lovely muted hues of blue, moss and brown
with a pinch of soft rose.

I have used a very lovely sketch for this card
that you can find at Carol's Sketch Fun
Carol sets a challenge for every fortnight and
doesn't mind you co-mingling challenges,
so for crafters looking for sketches to utilze,
you ought to take your peepers over to this blog
and see what the talented Carol has sketched up!!

I have also played along with the challenge at
Charisma Cardz
which is to use buttons on our project.
Another tricky task for me,
as I am not the biggest button user,
but I am finding it's got more to do
with the image you're using than anything else,
and this darling Lili image seems like
something that buttons could compliment.

As anyone who actually checks out my blog regularly
must have noticed,
I have been naughty and spent some $$ on a
product line that is new to me, Stampavie.
Now, I am not one to keep up with the times,
I like what I like and that's how I go about
purchasing supplies, but these are fantastic
and I now know why I see these cutie patootie images
all over the place in Blogland.
They are phenomenal and so much fun to colour.
I still need tons more practice,
Lili received her first inking this evening,
but it's practice I look forward to doing.

Thanks for stopping by,
please feel welcome to leave me your thoughts,
Whenever Blogger allows it, I return visits ;)
