Colour Create - Navy, Turquoise and Green

Oh it's good to be back! My mojo has taken a wee while to return! Seems to disappear when it is not in use :) I have a wonderful and special week with my Mum and Dad. They left on Sat and I tried not to shed a tear..just makes my Mum too sad if I cry. Hopefully see them again in a year or two..but who knows??? They had a great time bonding with the boys and my youngest found a special place in the crook of Grandpa's arm. My older two took great pleasure in teaching Grandpa the ways of the Wii. I took them out of school for a day because the importance of having special memories with their Grandparents to me was far more important than 1 day of education.
Anyway, must get back to the card. This week on Colour Create we have the combination of Navy, Turquoise and Green with the option of NO designer paper! Sarita has set us this fantastic CHALLENGE!! Again all the examples on the DT are so different. I hope you can find time to take part. Remember you can combine this challenge with any other you would like.
Thanks for all the comments you have left in the past week. I hope to come round and visit you all as the week goes by.

Good morning Judy

I adore your card. Your stitching is perfect, I love the image you have used and as for that Hero Arts background stamp, gorgeous.

It was a hard but fun challenge again this week and again, we all did something different, very inspiring.

Have a great day and I am so pleased you and your family had such a great time with your parents. The time will soon fly by til you see them again.
