#56 Let’s think HOT with Craft Ann’s

Fabulous Friday everyone and Happy New Year!

Well after a few weeks with a very big snag of having no internet in our new house I am glad to report that I am now back on the internet! Still don’t have home WIFI but Mr Clause was good to me for Christmas and managed to smuggle into the house a portable WIFi connection so between that and some random coffee’s at McDonalds to use their internet, things are looking up. :))

So what better way to celebrate the return with kicking off with the first new challenge of the year with Craft Ann’s Challenge Blog.  This fortnight we want to escape the winter cold with challenge ...

 #56 Let’s think HOT!

You can take this anyway you interpret it; hot colours, hot images and even hot ideas!

 I took this challenge and used warm oranges and browns tones that are often seen in Oz here in the summer.  And being on the opposite side of the world to most of you all and being in the summer season right now, it was not hard to find some inspiration outside the window.

I used Morning Glory from Crafty Ann’s Digi Shop changed the color of the image and printed it onto my die cut and then highlighted the flowers by using some of my new gorgeous Prima Blooms in place of the morning glory.  I love how well this turned out and can’t wait to pop it in the post as a gorgeous hello card to my sweet sister.

The girls and I would love if you joined us on our first challenge of the year so please do pop by the
