Overdoing it...


Friday night was a little bit too epic for Hubby and I, so yesterday was spent loafing around the apartment, eating and watching films.

Today we managed to do laundry and I skyped with JT - which was fun, I am getting more and more excited to see her at Thanksgiving.

After our call, I decided I would once again combine the Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches this week..

Color Throwdown #265 is a great palette this week -

And I love the simplicity of the FMS #109 sketch -
I have this lovely Stamping Bella Pixie stamp that I don't use very often and thought it would be fun to break it out here and colour it using part of the CTD palette.

I think the spotty paper (the last of a my minds eye set) is close enough to baked brown sugar and the white space around my image counts as my use of white. The embossed Navy paper was a gift from JT, she has this amazing wood effect embossing folder and she sends me pieces of card that she has embossed using this folder :) The sentiment is by Tim Holz and I used my fave VersaMagic Gingerbread ink to stamp it. As we all know I love a Candi! And the one here suits the colour scheme perfectly.

This card was such a simple, easy and fun make. Now I want to make a whole bunch of them to give as set!

Now I am going to go and make a few more 40 for 40 cards.
