Thursday Trio

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a great week. If you are looking for my challenge, it's here. I was crafting up a storm yesterday and this is what resulted. Playing along with a bunch of challenges (surprise, surprise).

This one is for the Splitcoast Stampers Colour Challeng3 #272 and for the Clean and Simple Fall to Sketch #91. I have a hard time using any sort of turquoise/teal colour so there is just a wee bit of it here.

This is for the Our Creative Corner Sketch. I'm loving this colour combination (see here).

This is for 2 Sketches 4 You #53 and for the Paper Craft Planet Colour Challenge #69 (black, white, gold and burgundy - which I messed up on cause I used cream instead of white, oops!).

Thanks to all for the inspiration! Enjoy the rest of your week and to my American friends, have a great long weekend. I'm teaching at Lasting Impressions on Sunday so give them a call to see if there is any room left!

Not sure I've mentioned this but the Minestrone Recipe from Giada De Laurentiis is amazing. A bit of work but totally hearty and full of flavour. The weather has been a bit cool here so it's great for warming up!

Gotta run. I have to finish drinking my coffee in my pink mug and then get ready for a busy day, none of which involves getting new job :(, but does going to involve going to meetings and seeing friends :).
