HOT IT UP!!

Helloooo, here I am with my weekly post. Every good intention of blogging more often soon flies out of the window as life takes control.

I'm pretty excited because we have a wonderful new collection coming VERY SOON! The collection comprises 13 gorgeous images drawn by the wonderful Louise and 40 sentiments created by me. I used one of the images as a preview in my card for the Dottie's World challenge this week, Lou used another for her DT card so pop over and check it out.

I set the challenge and as it's getting mighty hot out there I want to see fiery colours, red/oranges/gold that sort of thing. PLUS your project must of course include a Charmed download!

This beautiful image is Princess from our new collection, NOT OUT YET, but when it is you'll find it HERE. I coloured her in with Copic markers. The sentiment is one I created for the bundle.



I created a little corner ensemble with lush Prima gold leaves and gem centre (both unfortunately discontinued now), and lovely red roses. I just couldn't get good pictures today and had to take the card into the garden to captured some of the richness of these heavy totally fab leaves.


I added a beady border around the sentiment and in one corner (not pictured, but see main piccie).



I hope you like it. You can get this coloured image within the bundle too, to use either when you need a quick card, or perhaps for inspiration - so you get each main image in both black & white and coloured.

I'm off to the pictures later today with my girls. We are watching the new Twilight movie, Eclipse, and I don't mind telling you that I am sooo looking forward to seeing it. According to reviews it's the best one yet, I'll give you my critique later, he he.

Please pop over and join the challenge. Thanks for popping by x
