This is probably the only card that I'll be making this week as I will shortly be on my way to Bath to look after my two grandchildren whilst my daughter is skiing in Chamonix with her company! I think many team building activities are planned, but I'm sure there'll be lots of fun as well. Meanwhile her loft conversion will continue and this is the week when the ceiling is due to come down and the new stairs installed. She can certainly pick her time away!

Anyway this card is for a few challenges!

The tab is cut with a Spellbinders die and the image is a downloadable colouring page from the internet, coloured with Spectrum Noir pens.
The colours on this card have turned out rather deeper than they really appear, the sentiment from All Occasion Dies, is really a lovely shade of teal.


  1. Yummy colours and your trademark classy CAS style Chrissie! Love the take on the sketch and why not link up at ATCAS too as the code word is gift! Have a fun week! Sarah xx

    1. I chose this image specifically for the ATCAS challenge Sarah and then forgot to link it up when I first wrote the post!

  2. So, so elegant Chrissie! Fab image in in sumptuous colours.
    Especially like the textured panel.
    Have fun with the grandkiddies (and the building work!)
    Hugs, Sharon xx
