Another rainy day!!! I can’t believe how much rain we have had. But … I am not one to complain about the rain … I love sitting at my desk watching the beautiful scene! And … everything is so clean and fresh! The tanks are full … the grass is gorgeously green … and even though it feels like summer will never get here … I guess it really isn’t summer until tomorrow … is it!!!! 😉 I have another achievement from my quiet afternoon on Saturday to share with you today! Yes … another challenge card! I am sooooo enjoying having a play with the challenges lately!
I was determined to use some of the Peach Parfait (in colour) on this card. It is a very neglected colour (on my part) … and I thought I should have a go at using it! A great place to start when choosing combinations with in-colours … is usually another in-colour. I love this Pear Pizzazz … and with the Early Espresso as a darker contrast … the colour combo just seemed to work perfectly! 😀 I have almost hidden the scallop border with my cut out flowers … but I decided that the flowers actually created their own “scallop edge” … so I think I have still stayed true to the sketch! I had forgotten how much I LOVE this stamp set … and the gorgeously simple effect of “2-step stamping”! It was a fun card to put together! And … I am sooo loving the new SU! Jewels … both the pearls (used here) … and the sparkly rhinestones! I just can’t get enough of them at the moment! Gretchen has supplied all the measurements for this FAB sketch … which I have converted into cm on my card recipe! How handy! 😀 This means you can play along without having to think too hard!!! 😉
I just noticed that I have 10 comments waiting for replies and I just wanted to say thank you to all those who have taken the time to cheer me up on the weekend! Your comments always bring a smile to my face … and I can’t wait to pop by my mail box and check them all out! (And attach a reply … of course!) Thanks again for your friendship and support! 😀
Don’t forget to pop by here on Wednesday! There is so much happening with the beginning of summer! A new super 50% off promo … and a NEW MINI CATALOGUE! (For those who have requested one … I will pop these in the mail in the next few days!). Off to check those comments … and then I had better stop procrastinating and get that newsletter done! C U all soon! xxaxx
