Card for Diana

Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well in your world. I am now officially on holiday until Wednesday next week so I mean to enjoy myself, and what a lovely start with the wall to wall sunshine and a good forecast for today!
My card for today is my first using my new Pan Pastels. I love them but methinks I need some practise! It is safe for me to post it as I know the lovely lady has received it :o)


I cut and folded white card to A5.
I have only a limited number of Pan Pastels as yet, but I will be buying more!
The silhouettes are Lyndsay Mason stamps, the sentiment was printed in Word and punched with SU,  and the diecuts are Memory Box Chloe Stem :o)

Hi Jackie, how nice to be on holiday now, and you picked the right week cos it's sunny again today (well it is here anyway).

ooh I think you and your new Panpastels will get along just fine judging by this card. The background you made with them is just perfect for the stamps you used. Looking forward to seeing more.

I have been doing a little work myself and almost got an image coloured so hopefully will have something to show soon (at last, cos I am feeling like a lazy crafter, lol).

Soooooo soft and so pretty! What are the pastels....chalk or oils or a type of pencil? Yup, just getting back into the swing of things. My fat fingers hit the "delete" button on your comment you sent me regarding the M&Ms....sorry about that. Does you holiday start today or is today your last day?

Aloha Jackie. WOW! You sure have been busy and made some lovely creations since my last visit. Your photo cards just keep getting more amazing! I also love the lots of die cuts card, great cuts and super color. I really enjoyed your self portrait! You are a lovely lady! And your daughter is lovely too, and also talented by the look of the pics! She must take after her Mom! Big hugs, Joanne
