Bubblegum Sassy

Good morning everyone.  Hope you are all well.  I am really relaxed after spending a lovely weekend with my mom and a friend at a Warner Leisure Hotel - Holme Lacy House.  Beautiful place and gorgeous grounds so I feel relaxed after some treatments and doing nothing and stuffed after eating wonderful food for a weekend.  

We did have a bit of a laugh too.  My friend Angela and my mom ordered each a motorised scooter - nicknamed 'buses' by me.  Well Angela hasn't driven much for a couple of years due to having some serious chemo for the last 3 years and it has affected her feet.  She had some problems reversing in and out of the lift with the left hand and right hand bit.  So funny.  We did have a wonderful weekend.

We start a new challenge at Crafting from the Heart.

Challenge 74 is 'Always Anything Goes'

Our sponsors are: -

I have chosen to use a super image called 'Bubblegum Sassy'.

I did some paper piecing with my image using a backing paper from a serif digi kit.  I then coloured the rest of the digi image using my chameleon pens.

I then fussy cut her out using my BSC and also cut a mat for my image.

The rest of the card is simple matting and layering.  I have used the same backing paper for the matting.

Quite a simple layout but one I used from Paper Playful site which is wonderful for inspiration like layouts etc.
