Hi Maggie!

Yesterday saw the release of the new DCM dare and the brief was

"This week's Dare theme is a team effort rather than a challenge just thought up by just one of us. We'd like you to take the phrase"Hot and Spicy" and make of it what you will.
It could be colour themed, food themed or maybe have just a hint of saucy spicy-ness"
so I decided to use my Maggie stamp (hence the title!) and here she is

The papers are from The Funky One by Anice and they are lovely. As you can see, I used pale pink and green together and decided that my accent colour would be hot pink. Maggie was watercoloured using Marvys and a water brush (colouring isn't my strong point but I think it is passable :)) Flower, ribbon and eyelets are from the Papermania embellishment kit and the greeting was generated on the computer. The front was cut off the card because i decided to be clever and stamp straight onto it..............but it went wrong LOL so rather than waste the card, I 'trimmed' it!!

The rest of my week, apart from the cards I've already blogged, was taken up with a wedding order. The colour of these is lovely. It's almost like Cadbury's purple........

but the colour doesn't show up too well in the picture.

I've just taken delivery of a new stamp and found another template challenge so will have a go at that shortly. We haven't got anything planned for today as DH is working this evening and tomorrow we are popping over to have a look at my parents new house. They are moving back to the place where they met 52 years ago. It's an ex RAF camp, dad was stationed there and mum worked for NAAFI, and they are moving into an ex married quarter! I think it's so romantic..............but I'm like that :))

Whatever you are up to, have a good weekend.

Take care.

Sneaky take on the theme - very clever! The card looks great and I bet the wedding couple will be delighted with their 'Cadburys' invites!
