Blog overhaul.....

What do you think?????

I've been unhappy with my blog since I first started and being a technophobe didn't know quite what to do but finally I've managed to sort it out and now I'm happier with the design I will be posting more.... You know what it's like when you're not 100% happy with something you are reluctant to use it and thats how its been for me.

I hope you all like the new, fresh look and agree with me it has a little bit more of the seaside about it.

Hope to see you all soon in blogland with lots of new posts.

Colour Coach Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to Group 2 of the Colour Coach Blog Hop. I hope you are enjoying your tour of the blogs and getting some fab ideas.
You may have joined me here from Group 1 but if not you can always hop on over to them by clicking on this link

If you didn't join from Group 1 then you will have come here from Jan at who had some lovely ideas.

I'm sure you will have a great time hopping round but first let me show you my cards. I reached for the colour coach but found myself choosing colours that I knew were easy to work with so I decided to ask my SU mummy to pick a colour for me that would be more of a challenge.... Boy did she lol!

Elegant Eggplant.... Not a colour I have worked with so far. This is teamed with Melon Mambo and River Rock. I wanted to keep this one very simple so used very little stamping but lots of Big-Shot action along with a couple of punches.
Next I decided to get the inks out and teamed it with Hostess Set 'Because I Care' The flower was inked up using the markers and stamped onto Naturals Ivory. I layered this onto Garden Green and then onto Elegant Eggplant. Finally this was layered onto a More Mustard A6 card base.

I'm glad I decided to challenge myself and I'm sure I'll be reaching for the Colour Coach again in the future to prompt me into using combinations I wouldn't normally.

Now its time to hop on over to for some more lovely creations.

HAPPY HOPPING and be sure to visit again soon
