Le Tour de France

Morning Fluffers :)

It's the first of two posts from me today, so let's get this party started... This time on a Monday morning, can only mean it's time for a Cupcake!

This week, lovely Shelly has chosen Le Tour De France. We'd like to see anything French or Le Tour De France related, wine, food, Eiffel Tower, colours, flag, cycling... get the gist? Play along and you could win a voucher to spend at Sew Sweet.

I was determined to use this stripey paper and I wanted to colour up something in softer colours than I normally use. Seems like even my soft colours have come out quite loud. And the light was bad when I took these photo's! Anyway, I used the paper I wanted, even if I couldn't get any others to 'work' with it.

I'll be back in a few hours...

Hiya Faye, I love your cutting out here, fussy cutting is one of my fave things to do as little details like between the spokes of the bike can make a massive difference to a card. I also love collage and you have done it so well, a really great scene. Thanks for joining us at KEnny K's Krafty Krew this week, good luck and hope we see you again real soon.
Take Care
