Hello Saturday

This week Uniko Studio are hosting their first ever challenge and the theme is 'Say Hello'.  All their design team have made a card and shared a random fact about themselves in a blog hop.  As always lots of inspiration and some fun info too!

So in the spirit of the challenge my random fact is:  I slept with my teddy bear all my life until I got married at the age of 23. He now sleeps in the top of my wardrobe and is very shabby and battered from all those years of cuddling.

My one little word for 2013 is 'simplify' so in keeping with that I've combined this challenge with two others - a sketch from CAS(E) this sketch and colours from The Play Date Cafe. The colours of my papers really are melon and cantaloupe matches, but my photo seems to have turned them pink and blue - oh well something else I need to practise!

Hope you all like my card!


Stamps: Uniko Studio, Flower Power#2 & Nature's Treasures 1
Ink: Memento, Rich Cocoa; Ranger distress ink, Bundled Sage
Card & paper: Basic Grey, hopscotch & from my stash
Dies: Provo Craft, Hippy Chick alpha
Embellishments: pearl gems from my stash

Looks like it's going to be a cloudier slightly cooler day so maybe I'll get my sewing machine out and make some more stars for my patchwork quilt - tha's the plan, but I'm always flexible.

Thanks for looking.
