CCT with Lemon & Lilac

This is my card for CCT which this week is Food.
Well what a fabulous challenge I thought. Right up my street lol xxx This Hanglar image was a RAK from the very lovely Nikkie (thank you chicken xxx). The button and blooms are Poppicrafts and that beautiful ribbon is from the Raspberry Ribbons Lilac kit. The papers are PP and Dinky Dots and the sentiment is Woodware.

I don't know if it's just me but I had a right job getting this on here tonight - blogger needs a really good slappo. Has anyone else had probs? Or is it just me cos I am pink pig do ya think? A pink paranoid pig!!! What fantastic alliteration that is!!!!

Now talking of pink, the fabulous Summer Driggs has got a new freebie kit out which has oodles of pink. It is her Awareness kit - you can see it here. She has designed it to pay tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness month and to all the people who have had it, who currently have it, and to those of us who are loved ones to cancer victims. It has pink ribbons and buttons and the most gorgeous papers. I know lots of you bloglies make cards for charity and this kit is just perfect.

Now don't worry, I'm not going all maudlin again - I'm too full of egg and chips for that!!! But both my maternal grandparents died of cancer, as did my mum, so I really did appreciate that this lovely lady thought about this. She is not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well. Thank you Summer - you are truly an amazing woman.

Have a great evening lovelies, and may the force be with you xxxxx
