LIM blue and green and Yippee, I won!!!!

Hello my friends, A very happy (and long, sorry) post from me today, brilliant Olympic results for the UK so far, well done to everyone of our competitors, fabulous effort!!! China and USA have done pretty well too LOL
AND I won over at Less is More, the prize for the month of July wahooo!!!! Lucky lucky me and a very big thank you to Chrissie and Mandi, my prize is 12 WOW embossing powders!

They are brilliant embossing powders and I can't wait to check them out :0)
On to this weeks challenge which is.....................................
As it is the first of the month and colour we have chosen
Blue & Green
There is an old saying
Blue & Green should not be seen, Unless there's a colour inbetween!
In this day and age no colour combo is taboo, in some cases the wilder the better.


I chose a new stamp by La Blanche, I love it :0) Blue and green distress inks blended and then the image stamped in olive StaZon. The sentiment is from Whimsy Inspirations stamps.




I would love to just Thank every one of the lovely people who have left me comments here and on the LIM blog, I'm so grateful for all your support so a big THANKYOU from me mwah!!! Gay xxx
I have included a few shots of my gorgeous girlies and some of the happy times that we enjoyed on holiday in Cornwall the first week of the school holidays.
