PanPastels and a White Gel Pen

Yo ho fans :)

The text for this post is very brief I'm  afraid.     Mmmmmm... who said " good." " We only look at the pictures anyway"!  ;)

 I'm on holiday at the moment, down on The  Romney Marsh, in Kent, in a Caravan. The weather is beautiful but the Internet signals are NAFF! I've been trying all day to post this card!

This is my sample DT card for this weeks PanPastel UK Challenge called  ''Sweet Treats''
 Please enter a  card / project, you could win a prize of a  super duper Trial Pack of the Pans. Believe me, once you  have used them you will be hooked!

 The background of this card is made from strips of white card stock, coloured with PanPastels and a few spots added here and there with my white gel pen!

 It's my take on the  'woven' look !

 The little basket of eggs is made from a Quickutz Die, again coloured with PanPastels.

 This card was very quick to make and I just love how rich in colour the PanPastels are and how smooth to apply!

See you again soon ... My crafty mate Karen and her husband, Ian, have joined us for a few days and while Ken and Ian are out bird watching and taking pictures of anything that moves, Karen and I will be in my caravan, making a huge mess with our card making gear and stuffing chocolate in our gobs!

 Thanks for looking today and have a very Happy Easter .
