Colour My World

Good morning everyone! I am back safe and sound and had a wonderful holiday! We had seven days of wonderful sunshine and blue skies! We stayed in Malaga which is the first time we had been there and we were very impressed with what a lovely city it was.  Our hotel was in the old part of the city and it was fab - lots of lovely places to eat and shops to see!  We hired a car and went touring about (we aren't beach babes!!) and saw some beautiful places - Alhambra and Mijas were both favourites.  The only down side was driving in Malaga - what a nightmare, so many one way systems and nothing seemed to be signposted it took us ages to find our hotel!!

Anyway, back to business! Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


So we want to see lots of colour on your projects!  Here is my card:

Items Used:

Stamp: Digital Delights Mermaid available here
Papers: Echo Park Splash
Markers: Copics
Dies: Spellbinders Nesites
Cuttlebug Sea Charms
Cheesecloth dyed with Memento Bahama Blue Ink
Ribbon from Stash

This week our sponsor is:

with this fabulous prize:

I so wish I could enter!!!  Remember we would love to see you use a Digital Delights image, there are so many to choose from however you don't have to.  If you do use a Digital Delights image then you can enter your project twice - that will be two chances to win this fabulous prize!!  Please go over to Delightful Challenges and see what my lovely team mates have done!  

I am off now to start catching up with what I have missed!  Thanks for looking and take care xx

Welcome home Susan - so pleased to hear you had a lovely time. We used to holiday in La Cala De Mijas many years ago - we found Mijas 'accidently' when we got on the bus back from Fuengirola once and the bus went up the hill instead of straight along the coastline - we were pleased we got on the wrong bus though as I agree that Mijas is beautful :o)
And so is your card - stunning colours and fab LO.
Enjoy the rest of the day.
