Many Thanks

Ever had a day like this...  I looked for a challenge & nothing seemed to catch my fancy, I looked on Pinterest to see if I could find some inspiration... nada, zilch.... then I looked through the SCS gallery & couldn't find anything there.  So I just sat down & started coloring.  I didn't like the first color combo, so I tossed it & restamped my image.    Whew!  I'm so glad I pushed through & got this card made.  And ya know what... as I was uploading this card, I saw a challenge that I hadn't looked at earlier & I got an idea for tomorrow's card!!! Win!!!

Stamps: Dynamic Duos Foxglove & Rannuculus Power Poppy
c/s: white, black
copics, white twine, black nuvo crystal drops

Until next time!

This week's CAS challenge is ~ Peek-a-boo~  & the current House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge is about "recycle/reuse"  I cut that piece of dp & backed it with the pink c/s awhile ago & then decided that the colors didn't match the image I was going to use, so I put it my scrap pile.

Stamps: Mudpie Holds Jellybeans
c/s; white, bubblegum pink
copics, Seeing Spots ef, Fresh Snow twill tape

Until next time!

Power Poppy Power & Spark January

This month's Power & Spark challenge is to create a project with winter blooms.  I need a card to send to a friend going through a rough time & I found out her favorite color is purple.  I don't like purple & don't have purple dp, so I paired it with black & made it work!  I've made these blooms several different colors but not purple & I think they turned out really pretty! *grin*   One of my goals for this year is to use more digi stamps, I think they are gorgeous, but just don't take the time to print them out & use them.

Stamps: Hellebores Digi Stamp Power Poppy
c/s: white, black
copics, wink of Stella glitter, black grosgrain ribbon, black pearls

Until next time!
