Well I most certainly am not! I have a chest infection that is hanging on in there and as I've been out of action for a few days it has put me behind about three weeks, yikes I'm going to be busy!!!
For the Color Challenge over at the Outlawz this week we have a very bright happy colour pick from Teresa
What a magnificent bird, the Hyacinth Macaw absolutely stunning; I remember a friend buying one many years ago, it took forever to locate one and get the Cites paperwork for it and the cost, wow you could buy a house for what that fella cost! But the most beautiful parrot I have ever seen - I digress, so no wonder Teresa's twist was to add wings.
As it's Christmas card season in my house I set about to make a Christmas card with these colours. I used our sponsors image; isn't it cute!
The background is made up of some gloss blue card and some paper from my stash that just happened to fit the bill perfectly. I stamped and embossed with a marquasite embossing powder the sentiment and cut the letters out with a circle punch. Snowflakes are some table glitter (you get hundreds in a packet). I thought it looked quite cute in these colours and was just about to photograph it to post and remembered the twist! Some serious head scratching took place I can tell you, then I remembered some Clarity stamps that I have and there was my little robin, I think he looks right at home there don't you? The Santa sleigh stamp is from the same set, sweet!
Well that's my offering this week and I do hope we will get to see your project, if you're not a member of the Outlawz why not come over and check us out and join us, its free and fun! If you are a member - what are you waiting for!
