Orange but no satsumas...


Happy Tuesday! Nearly half-way through the week already *wink*

I really thought this week would be quiet on the ol' blogeroo but after taking full advantage of some free time last weekend, I have a few things to share on here!

First up is my first entry to the current Runway Inspired Challenge #10. That's right, I said 'first'. So inspired was I by this runway beauty, that I whipped up another take on the challenge to share with you later this week.

Not my usual colours but I think I could easily grow to like 'em :)

Thoughts of You

I hope you can tell that I was inspired by the colours and the trendy chevron pattern on the orange top.

This card contains a mix of sets from different companies but I think they work together just fine. First up the flowers and sentiment are from Nature's Beauty by The Craft's Meow. The chevrons are from Papertrey Ink and the tiny strip of Terracotta Tile has a gorgeous pattern stamped in Versamark from Uniko Studio's Background Builders: Lattice.

Wish I could get away with wearing such a bold shade of orange....though with my red hair I fear I would end up looking like a satsuma! Ha!

I'll be back later with my second entry...and don't fear, it won't feature any satsumas :)

Catch ya later!
