ABC & Dutch Dare Challenges

 A very good morning hope you are having a relaxing morning and the weather isn't too bad where you are. I have used one of my new Manga's from Sugar Nellie for today's card which is for the challenge over on

A fabulous theme "Summer in Winter" and fabulous designs for the team.

and also


the challenge is "New"

Fabby examples from the team as always, thanks girls.


I have coloured my Manga girl Dreamy in with a mixture of Polychromos and Prisma pencils. I have teamed her up with papers by Basic Gray Sultry and Papermania Blueberry Hill.

 I'm still wading my way through stash clearing out and finding things I didn't realise I had like the flowers on this card are from Poundland yonks ago. The hearts pearls I didn't even know I had.
