Bugaboo Christmas In July Day 6 – Oldie But Goodie Colour Inspiration

Here we are with the penultimate challenge for this year’s Christmas in July event at Bugaboo. Today’s challenge is a colour inspiration. I confess I did opt to go for the obvious with my project but I am sure that some of you will be able to come up with something a little more unusual. I can’t wait to see the array of entries for this one!SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
