PanPastels, Quickutz Daisy and a Crealies Template

Ignore the Yellow... they are Lemon Daisies (squint a bit!)
Yahoo fans!
I'm having a super weekend so far... I hope you are too.

The weather is a bit 'iffy' but who cares when you are crafting. I spent yesterday messing about with Tim Holtz .... well, his products anyway!

Daisies are LEMON not yellow! .... rubbish picture, sorry!

I had loads of fun at a local Craft Store, Scrapbook Sisters in Rainham Kent, playing with paint and all manner of goodies. I will post my project when I have finished it ... you will be Ooooooo and Ahhhhhhing all over the place !

Ladybird is Red.... Flowers are LEMON...... okay!
  This is my DT sample for the Magnificent PanPastel UK Challenge.    Go and have a look.... quick!

Huh! even worse here ..... THINK LEMON !!!

This weeks challenge theme is 'Springtime'.
 You don't have to use PanPastels in your entry to be in with a chance of winning, so why not have a go?
The winner will be chosen by Random.Org next Saturday and will win a super trial pack of PanPastels courtesy of our Sponsor.  

For this card, I dusted off my Cricut Expressions Machine and cut some circles to use with a 
Crealies Template.

( Link is here for Crealies  Go to the 'Simple Shortcuts' page and it's called template no1.)

The circle sizes are..... 2  x Five and half inches for the base,  1 x Five inches  and finally 1 x Four and half inches.

Place the two smaller circles on to the *a* and *b* templates and draw in the straight lines with a pencil,  cut them out and layer up as shown.
You will also need to cut more circles to decorate the inside of your card if you wish.
There is a hinge included on the template to cut out, so you can join your base white card stock together.

It's all pretty straight forward. It has to be 'cos I can't be doing with 'faffing' about!
I used the Going Places Cartridge in the Cricut.

The Lemon ( Oh....yes they are!) daisies, are cut using a Quickutz Daisy die and the leaves are the 'Olive Branch' die from Dies to Die for.  I coloured the daisies with my PanPastels ... in Lemon!

Okay fans,  I'm off, lots to do today, gardening, washing, cleaning cars .... Oh rissoles, it's raining I'll have to CRAFT then!
