Pink Elephant Challenge

Well a very good morning to all you lovelies out there in blogland... new & old alike.

Hopefully things will start to return to a bit of normality this week again & I will be back in challenge mode again... fingers crossed anyway.
To get the ball rolling again I opted to start with this weeks challenge over at
A colour scheme of pink, green & yellow so that was quick & easy to accomplish.

Here I done some doodling around the base card with a black Pigma Micron pen, then attached some self adhesive ribbon for the stalks of the flowers. Next up used some cream flower heads which I coloured pink using a ink pad. When dry again some doodling was added. Some yellow card candy for the flower sentiments & rub-on sentiment to finish.

Pigma micron pen : Sakura

Self adhesive ribbon : Cardology

Flower heads & card candy : Craftwork Cards

Rub On's : Doodlebug

Okay folks that's it for the moment although I will be back later, but right now I have to dash as I've got a dental appointment at 10.30. Poor me...

Oh yes & forgot to say... our water has been yucky brown since last night as apparently there was a burst mains water pipe.... ran all the taps last night for an hour & still dirty... this morning I'm running the bath full steam ahead... yuck.... still more dirt....
Thankfully we had a few bottles of water which we've been able to use but think I'd better pop into the supermarket on the way home & buy some more.

See you all soon

Happy crafting
