Give Me Five...

....five minutes with my Prismas.....I have lived a blissfully sheltered life with my Chalks and the odd 'dabble' with my Watercolour Pencils, loving both of them passionately...but now I have discovered Prismacolour pencils, thanks to my generous friend and am sneaking every opportunity to play with them.

This card is different from my usual style and I like that about it.  While in New Zealand visiting family I got a surprise RAK from my dear friend Maxine (aka Kiwime) Maxine included some images that are different from my usual style, just to challenge me - so how have I done!?!

I decided that I would create some cards that my children can use for their friends birthdays - they are meant to make their own BUT NO - they hit my supplies!!  So I decided I would create a few simpler ones that were 'cool' as well for their friends.....thanks to Maxine, I now have some images that are just right!!

I had to show you up close this adorable paper clip that I received in a RAK from the lovely Priscilla (aka Priscilla Styles) It is perfect for this card too - where  would I be without my friends - well, my cards would be a lot more boring that is for real! LOL!  The DP is some I won in a Blog Candy too - if we look hard enough I am sure I can find something of my own ! LOL!

It gers worse - the pouches are borrowed from my friend Julie, who brought four that she has never used - guess where they are holidaying - yes - with their other friends in my 'Craft Central!' and the black DP is also from a friend who was having a sort out....oh - the brads are mine - PHEW!! LOL!

I am linking this to the following challenges:
Sew Many Challenges - Anythng Goes
Oh-La-la Creations - Simply Summer
Stampin'B - Summer Vacation
Delightful Sketches - Its All About Summer
The Crazy Challenge - make it in an Hour
Before I finish I wanted to invite you to come to this week’s launch of our multiple challenges on Crafter's Digital Art Centre.

The first few challenges will run for two weeks and then we will have another wonderful group of hostesses lined up. It is bound to be tons of fun with lots to offer.
