Pick a color any color...

Happy June!! Can you believe we are half way through 1013...where did it go??? 

Thank you to everyone for entering our Oh Baby! challenge last month. Make sure you check the Challenge Blog to see if you were one of the winners :-D

We are back to our fortnightly challenges and today's is Color Wheel. All you have to do is pick one color and use the one directly opposite as your main colors. 

I've been stuck for crafting time the last couple of weeks (can't think of why lol) and didn't think I'd get a card made for today but as luck would have it I found this card I'd made last month but hadn't yet posted that fit the challenge perfectly yippee!!!! I've used Blue-Green and Red-Orange...let me know what you think...

I made this card for my BIL using Through The Ages 50 BUT he wasn't 50...he was 55. I thought I'd be a bit cheeky and print 'and the rest' lol. I paper pieced the 50 and colored the bunting with my Copics as well as the glass of wine adding Glossy Accents to make it look wet.

Tee hee...hope he didn't mind!

A little peek at the inside. 

The winners of my image from last weeks Oh Baby! reminder, B for Baby are:

Congratulations me and I'll send the image to you asap.

A little update on my grandson Coen (I never get tired of saying that)...he is one day short of 2 weeks old and weighs in at 8lbs 1 oz...that's just shy of a 1lb gain!!! Most babies lose weight for the first week or so but not this little big guy lol. 

Isn't he just the cutest baby you've every seen {love sigh} He is so good and only cries when he's hungry. He had his first proper photo shoot at the the ones Ann Geddes does for her calendars. I can't wait to see them :-D

My mom, aka The Judy and now Great Grandma Judy arrives tomorrow for a month. It's been just over a year since we were all together for Nicole and Ben's wedding. We are all really excited and I can't wait for her to meet her great grandson...I hope I live long enough to have one of those lol. 

Ok...gotta fly. I've got a date with the wee man and Nic at 12 and I've got a few things to do first. 

Thanks for stopping by

Have a fabulicious week :-D

Catch ya later x

Sounds like your grandson is perfect in every way, but I have to admit he really is cute and does seem very tall as well.
Isn't it scary sometimes how time flies, seeing that Nice and Ben's wedding was already a year ago, as was my visit to the Glasgow area without telling you. ;-(
Hope you'll be having a blast of a time with your mom!

Cute, cute - love the colors and all those layers!

I need to use these images....such a slacker!!

Coen - gosh, he's just adorable and what a good baby! So glad Nic is doing well!

Alison Scott said...

He is so sweet. Hope you and Nic enjoyed lunch today, hubby will be getting jealous of all these dates with another man!
Remember to sharpen your elbows for getting the Judy out of the way. Just remember GG has rank over Glamma ;-)

Have to say that the little man is growing so big already, he is going to be a ladies man I think :)

YOur card is brilliant, love the idea of "and the rest" I may even pinch that idea some time.

Love this image - one of my favourite Through the Ages images - colour combination is perfect and sure your BIL will forgive you ;0)
Coen is looking adorable and why not put crafting on a back burner for a little while so long as it's not tooooo long xxxx
