Golf Detour

Good morning all!

Hope you all have a lovely week ahead of you. I will mostly be horizontal, as I just had a small operation last week and am still in recovery mode. However, Monday waits for no woman and another Ooh La La Challenge is on the horizon! Talking about Ooh La La, they will be presenting their latest CD on Create and Craft coming Saturday and it really is a gorgeous new release. The programme starts at 10.00 UK time, if you're interested! Anyway, back to the challenge, the theme this fortnight is "F is for.....", so use something on your card beginning with F! I've used a Funny image of a Fairway, which I've Framed and used some Foliage in the corner. Love to see what you can come up with!

Magnificent Men

Good morning everyone,

Another week is starting, are we ready? Well, to be honest, I could have done with a couple of hours more sleep, but never mind. The Ooh La La Challenge is starting today with the theme "Magnificent Men". Let's celebrate the men in your lives by creating some stunning cards for them! I made my card for my father, who has loved horses all his life. So this image was perfect for him! I started with the image and selected some muted brown, green and pink papers to compliment the lovely image, added some embellishments and voila!

Looking forward to seeing all your lovely projects, we really do love visiting your blogs and gawking at your creative makes :)

Let your imagination run wild and if you come up with something fabulous, be sure to share it with us!
