Say it in ... Yellow

Wow, I have had a busy blogging week. This is my fifth post for the week!! It's not only been a busy blogging week, but an absolutely chaotic week as far as kids activities are concerned. As I type this my two older boys are off to their Valentines Disco, and Friday is Ray's 40th birthday, and Caide & Bryce's school gala. Straight after the gala we are heading to the Berg for a lovely relaxing family weekend to celebrate Ray's milestone birthday!!

Anyway, moving on..... Our AnnaBelle Challenge this week is to create a card in YELLOW. What a lovely uplifting colour to play with for you ladies in the Northern Hemisphere that are experiencing such cold weather.

Here is my card:



For my card I used the lovely "Easter Hope" stamp set that was released this week. You can purchase this set, as well as all the other gorgeous AnnaBelle Sets and goodies HERE!

Speaking of the AnnaBelle Shop, do you know that AnnaBelle Stamps has a wonderful gallery full of inspiring cards for you to get ideas on how to use the different sets. It really is a wonderful place to visit. I urge you to go and have a look. Go HERE!

Speaking of inspiration, the links to all the AnnaBelle DT girls are below. Go and check out their fabulous YELLOW creations!!

What a lovely bright card....I love yellow atm!!! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and your lovely comment:):) As for your guestion, it generally takes me about 3 hours for a layout (of course that's in between interuptions too)......a little quicker if the mojo is flowing!
Have a great day:)
