PaperPlay Challenges & Colour Me Creative

Good morning! It's been such a busy week thus far and I am so glad the kids will be off school for 2 weeks from this Friday!! Yay.. 2 whole weeks of no school runs, no lunches, no uniforms and NO ROUTINE!! Of course it will most likely mean very little crafty time too, lol.

Today I have 2 cards to share today. I had a full on mojo day yesterday and I made the most of it.

First up is PaperPlay Challenges and this week we have a photo inspiration challenge for you. We are being sponsored by Kenny K Downloads and the DT are all showcasing these fabby digis!! I took the colours as my inspiration

I just love Kenny K's - they are such fun images and are a joy to colour. My papers are from Basic Grey  and have been machine stitched. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley.

Copics - E00, 01, 11, 50, 51, 53. R20. C8, 5, 3, 1. V00, 04, 07. B12
