Pollycraft Monday Challenge 13 - Orange!

This week's challenge at Pollycraft Monday Challenge has been set by Pops and is a colour theme of orange. This sent me into a panic as orange is not really a colour I ever use on cards so I had to have a hunt through my stash for some orange paper and embellishments but I am quite pleased with the results and I think I now will use this colour again. I quite like challenges that take me out of my comfort zone so thanks Pops! Please check out the other DT cards for some fantastic inspiration. There another gorgeous stamp set up for grabs for the winner so please come along and join us in the challenge. To take part in the challenge you must use one Pollycraft item in your creation.

Thanks to everyone that wished my little girl Grace a Happy Birthday for yesterday. We had a lovely family party for her and she was thoroughly spoilt by everyone! This is a picture of her I took yesterday on her birthday, she looks so grown up!

And this is Grace's Princess birthday cake, I would like to tell you I made it but I am a hopeless cook! My sister made this cake for Grace and it tasted fantastic!

I hope you have all had a great Easter Weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey:)
