Papaya card, earrings and lots of papaya stuff !





Today I have a lot of Papaya stuff to show you.
I think I am going Papaya mad atm., must be all this
 gloomy weather.Can't seem to get out of all my winter 
clothing. Anyway first here is my Papaya card, I made it
for my neighbour. She has been in hospital and I
thought it would cheer her up to get a little card to
welcome her home. I also bought her some lilies too as I
 know she loves them. She lives alone so I am hoping
 it will give her a boost. Back to my card....rambling again
 sorry! I used my Pink Petticoat digi papers again,
 'Brocade' in Papaya. I made a strip then another
white strip under that embossed with the dotty folder.
Sentiment computer generated, layered with more
PP strip. The leaf part is a bit I snipped off my new
die 'Memory Box, honeysuckle' . Also I made these
pretty papaya and orange flower earrings to go with
some clothes/shoes I bought recently. I fancied something
 bright to look more summery as I have been wearing
mostly navy/black recently.Anyway it all started with this
lovely scarf I saw ( see pics below), then I saw these
 trousers. Then I saw these shoes lol, well you know
how one thing leads to another ! I won't wear them
all at once, but I like the idea of a white shirt and the
 trousers then maybe the shoes too. The earrings I
made to go with the scarf ( bright ones) or paler ones
to go with the trousers/shoes.I think they are a good match.
So glad I am having a change from pink just now, I do buy
a lot of pink stuff. Hope you have enjoyed looking at
all my latest makes/purchases.Have a lovely day everyone.
A big welcome to all my latest followers too, thankyou
 for choosing me to follow.

Ok so these ARE pink, but they match the peachy trousers perfectly strangely enough!
These match the scarf really well too.
The scarf which started it all !
Love these, they fit so well too, need an iron I think though.
Well I just had to get these as they matched so well.
The whole set.
Good colour match I think.
