Sunny Sunday

Good morning hope you are having a spectacular weekend, it is so beautiful and sunny here. We had a lovely BBQ yesterday with Dave's daughter, husband and grandchildren Max and Emma. We had the water slide and water guns out and great fun was had by all.

Today sees a new challenge at Hobbycutz and the sponsor for this challenge is Squigglefly. The theme is Shades of the Same Colour.  We were very lucky to have been given some gorgeous images from Squigglefly to work with here is what I made using browns:

This image is called Blow Me A Kiss and is available here. I decided not to colour her but just added a bit of sepia in my editing software.  I cut the image out using Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles and embossed the frame with a Spellbinders embossing folder.  The papers are from En Francais by Prima.  Sentiment and tag are from Waltzingmouse.  The rosette is made using a Sizzix die with a sparkler from The Hobby House.  The gorgeous laser cut flourish is from Hobbycutz with lots of fab designs to choose from here.

Here is another view:

Please go over to the Hobbycutz challenge and see the rest of the Design Team's projects they are all so talented!
