New and Old..


Hi,

Hope you all had a nice weekend.

I have had a productive one, making cards, sewing, hanging out with friends. Looking forward to the week ahead in my new job though.

I've been trying to enter a few new challenges - today I am entering ColourQ #224 - I loved the palette for this week.


I really wanted to use the flower from a Fiskars stamp set I have..I bought it a while back in TJMaxx for $1.99!!

I stamped it onto some white card in Gray ink. I used a basic card stock that matched the Pool Party requirement and embossed it with a Darice 12inch folder, I used it on 2 sides of the card..clever! I thought the spotty ribbon matched the pool party look and anchored the image and the Poppy strip nicely. I love Candi, so I dug around and found a pair that matched Island Indigo.

The old part of my card is the sentiment stamp by Hero Arts..I love it and use it a lot.

It is Martin Luther King day here in the US and lots of people have the day of..not me unfortunately. So if you do have the day off I hope you have a good one.
