Bold and BRIGHT!


I'm waking us all up on this sunny weekend with this bright little number:

Wowzers! I know it's kinda bright and probably what you'd never expect from an earthy, neutral, green-lovin' gal like me but I couldn't resist challenging myself and taking pure inspiration from my colour combo heroine Heather P and her new Totally Hues challenge! I urge you to play along too - I had so much fin making this: those colours just made me so happy! :)

Thanks for the inspiration and fabby challenge, Heather! I'll be paying a little more love to the bolder colours in my stash from now on *wink*

Dashing off quick today because any sunshine here in Sheffield needs to be made the most of! Wishing you all a super Saturday!

Catch ya later!
