Weekly Challenge 3 – One Sheet Wonder

Been a strange few days. My daughter developed a cough, but getting a test was easier said than done, it took us four attempts 😆. The whole family had to self-isolate, but thankfully her test came back negative. To be honest as much as I love my family, I am glad that they can all go back to school, college and training. Three autistic adult family members and a teenage boy at home with 3 PlayStations, an Xbox, a laptop, an iPad and various phones going at once, the Wi-Fi struggles and costs a fortune in electricity, not to mention the noise, which even the sound sensitive ones among them don’t seem to notice. Wrong sort of sound 😆

The challenge this week is a one sheet wonder. I have decided to turn mine into cards.

I liked this set as soon as I saw it. It is fun and is great for colouring. I haven’t used it as much as I would like, but as my family is now in self-isolation until my daughter’s test results come back, I will have time to play.

Weekly Challenge 2 – Monochromatic Project

The challenge from Stampin’ Up UK this week was to make a monochromatic project. This was my card which I chose to do in Petal Pink. Apart from the quality of Stampin’ Up products, the other reason I love them is that everything coordinates perfectly. For this project I was able to use my Stampin’ Blends to colour the ribbon and pearls to match.
