a great British Play Date Cafe Challenge :)


...cos this week I chose the colours :)  and Tracy Evans is our guest designer :) :)  How cool is that!!!


This image reminds me of bubble painting with the kids at school - a great activity :)  I love the splash of bright green mixed amongst the blues.


I was tempted by a peacock theme this week but ended up with my favourite hydrangeas!  Julie was telling me she's just got some of the new Martha Stewart punches so I ended up checking out the new releases - and fell in love with cherry blossom!  They are random flowers just like the hydrangeas - need to get saving!


I felted some bright green curly locks onto some green felt, then free machined some punched painted paper before stitching on the blue ric rac and adding some blue shinies!

Have fun with these colours :)  And don't forget to check out what our DT have been working on this week -
but don't forget to enter your piece over at The Play Date Cafe ~ have fun!

This is gorgeous! As soon as the PDCC blog loaded onto my screen and I saw the top half inch of the inspiration photo, I just knew it was going to be a Sarah week!!!! Really hope to have time to play again this week, but life isn't co-operating at the moment so we'll see.
