A Splash of Yellow!!


These are the colours this week at the Play Date Cafe and as you can see its another colour splash, this time with yellow.




































When I was trying to think of a card to make I kept coming up with butterflies and flowers again but I wanted to steer away from that this time.   This little teacup stamp was a freebie with a card magazine that I sometimes buy and it was crying out to be inked up!!! I have paper pieced with different scraps of yellow PP from my scraps box.  I have had the background PP for years and the grey spots just didn't inspire me,but perfect for this card. (I hope it qualifies as its grey and not black?)

Its been snowing here again today, we have had about 6 inches and the garden is looking so pretty. Hope you are enjoying your weekend, only a week till Christmas now and I have lots still to do!!
