Ellen Hutson March Pinsights Challenge

The sun has returned!! Its a glorious day here and I've just come inside after a couple of hours of trimming back trees. I'm pooped, hot and feel sick because I drank too a perfect time to sit down and show you all a card!

After seeing this Mood Board for the Ellen Hutson Pinsights Challenge I knew I had to create one or two entries. I can never resist a rainbow palette:

I don't own many Ellen Hutson stamp sets (only 3 in fact.....) so I have to get rather creative with them, especially as one of them is an older Christmas set. I used this radish image from the EH Leading Ladies - Plant Lady by Brandi Kincaid and stamped it 8x on some white CS. I then set myself up with my pencils and coloured away while watching some YouTube videos.

Once I had finished I used the matching die to cut them all out. I die-cut a small circle of black CS (using die from Couture Creations) and heat embossed this sentiment (also from the Plant Lady set) in white and popped up on foam tape, along with all the radish images. I tried to add some sequins but they just didn't work, so left it nice and clean!!

I'm also going to link this to the Scrapbook Boutique April Challenge where they have this fabulous mood board as well:

I'm going to have a quick game of basketball with Max, and then the kids and I are going to see Ready Player One at the movies. Seems a shame to sit inside on such a glorious day but its the start of the school holidays and I have to work every day, so good to be able to do something nice with them. That's if I don't break my arm or leg while playing basketball......wish me luck!

Take care
