O - Orange

Morning everyone

I can't believe how fast this month is going as friday has rolled around again this can only mean that we have a new letter on the Alphabet challenge and this week it's O for Orange.
For my card i have used some decoupage sheets i had from QVC ohhh it must be 3 years ago and it's still in the room of stash, i seem to have gone a bit mad on decoupage the last couple of weeks keeps me out of mischief.
The picture makes the card and papers look a browny red colour but they are orange i assure you, it must be the light when i took the photo.
Hope you will join in with us on this challenge and i look forward to visiting your blogs.
I'm also entering into this weeks Bee Crafty challenge = Ribbon.

Nice & Easel

Morning all

A very windy morning here but at least it's dry for now.

I recieved my La Pashe nice & easel kit yesterday and couldn't wait to have a play, i've cut out all the decoupage so all i have to do is complete the cards, you get 8 alltogether but you can make a lot more than 8 cards with the kit, the card looks a bit crooked but thats the way i took the picture.
You can find the kits HERE.
Here is card No 1
