Dream a little dream...

Good morning! I'm fresh back from holiday having enjoyed a lovely relaxing week in a beautiful cottage in Somerset. Sunshine, beautiful countryside, too much food, my dog and good friends-who could ask for more?!
I'm looking forward to an afternoon glued to the TV, not usually my idea of a Sunday afternoon's entertainment but it's the Wimbledon finals and I'm rooting for Andy!!  Should be a great match , whoever wins!
Anyway, back to business and it's time for a new challenge at Hobbycutz. I can't believe that we've reached our 10th challenge already! The theme this time is 'Fantasy', set by our extremely talented Cathy, you can check out her blog here. We are sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs, who gave us some fabulous images to play with. I chose the lovely Bella Bride, isn't she beautiful? I coloured her, very simply, with copics cut her out and mounted her onto an embossed circle, edged with lace, which in turn is mounted onto an embossed circular card. The lovely wooden lasercut swirls and trellis are, of course, from Hobbycutz, you can buy them from here
Please take time to pop over to Hobbycutz Challenges, check out the lovely creations my teamies have made. Hopefully you'll be tempted to join us and share one of your own lovely projects. Incidentally, there is a DT call at present as we are reaching the end of our first term so you could be doubly tempted!
However you choose to spend the rest of today - I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for stopping by
