This post is very photo-heavy
and the winner of my little birthday candy too...CR84FN has a fab colour combo challenge this week of Chartreuse, Lavender and Grey. Hubby and I have been building a little apartment in Crete where our eldest daughter lives and as it happens I chose chartreuse, lavender and grey for our colour scheme. This seemed like a very good opportunity to post a few photos of the apartment which is built over Emma's bar making it very handy for when one is in need of a cocktail! It needs some art on the wall but the views, taken from our balconies are lovely!
These photos were taken in January this year so there weather was wet and chilly but look
- a rainbow!
- a rainbow!
This is the view from the rear balcony, to the side
The buildings below on the right are the village where our wonderful daughter lives with her fabulous hubby and our gorgeous grandson. Her house is a 5 minute walk from the bar. The grove of olive trees also has an orange tree. Tom pops out in the morning for our breakfast oranges (with the permission of the owner of course). He makes me juice and boy is it fresh!
And I did make a card using the colour scheme too. I am entering it into the following challenges:
CR84FN - 48 Grey, Lavender, Chartreuse
Penny Black - 188 Love and Kisses
Basic Grey - 62 Love Valentine - My DPs are from a 12x12 set of BG papers
Our Daily Bread - 96 H-E-A-R-T where the challenge is to use at least three things on our project which begin with at least three letters of HEART.
I chose Hedgehogs (and hearts of course), Ribbon and Tag
CES - 72 Lots of (3 or more) layers
Totally Gorgeous - 118 Lurve
My card is not a Valentine, nor an engagement or an anniversary card but a Congratulations on your Annulment! I bet you don't see many of those around. This particular annulment will enable two special people who are very much in love to get married to each other in the Catholic church. The marriage which has been anulled ended around 25 years ago but it was a very long process to get it annulled!
My DP is Basic Grey. I have used a Go-Kreate tag die, a Nestabilities die for the top of the tag and two different Martha Stewart punches. The sentiment is by Whimsey and is cut using a PTI postage stamp die which doesn't quite fit but works okay. Hedgies are of course Penny Black and are coloured with Copics and Promarkers. And I used a little Stamps Away grass stamp too.
And the winner of my candy, drawn by Random Org is number 38
