PanPastel UK - School's Out or Buttons and Bows. and a PUBLISHED CARD

Guess what I chose for my PanPastel DT piece this week? 
Yay school's out for summer.

Using an Oxford Impressions stamp set I have made a book cover depicting a girl with her satchel and a report book cover. The background (originally an A4 size) was made in summer colours using PanPastels and masks and a portion cut for this piece.

Here are some more pieces cut from that original A4 background. You will see these come alive over the next couple of weeks.

And here are the first two pages in the book.

All the things we love to do when on holiday when we have time for friends.

If you come and join in the challenge you could be the lucky winner of a set of pans from Your Creativity Store. You don't have to use PPs to be eligible for the draw though.

Have a great day and enjoy whatever you have planned.

UPDATE (later that morning......)

I am sooooo excited.

I have just seen the Papercraft Inspirations website which shows a card I made for their PanPastel Masterclass.
You can see the card HERE, but will have to see the new magazine for the full Masterclass details of the design team. I will go searching for it today.  See my sidebar for the published card and click on the photo to be transported to my tutorial on the Papercraft Inspirations blog. Woo hoo. xox


Anything Goes at FSC

Well we all love the anything goes theme don't we? So as long as you have used real stamping on your project come and join us and enter it into the Fashionable Stamping Challenge for this fortnight and please pop over to see what the amazing Stampettes have provided for your inspiration. There is also a DT call that you might be interested in.

I have been making some 'Thank You' cards for the lovely friends and family who came to our BBQ last weekend and have kept them simple because they have to be posted.

I used stamps by Kanban and Martha Stewart and added some ribbon, pearls, a metal corner and one of my downloaded butterflies.

I hope you are having a good weekend. We are away visiting friends in Birmingham and also having my eyes tested, I bet I need a new prescription and glasses!!

Have a great day.
