Only got one card Saturday - I've found some additional freedom finally - I can drive again for the first time since October 8....Yipeee. So, I ventured into the city. Still don't have the stamina for crowds and lineups for this time of year - but at least I know I can drive where I need to.
This was a fun card - it's full of challenges, but the background was fun and stems from the colours given out by the Play Date Cafe....Here are the challenges:
Sweet Stop - Sketch
Crafty Creations - A Beary Creation - I used the Bear from "Under the Stars" and the Santa hat from "Sock Monkey Accessories". I found that if I placed the hat just right, I could get rid of the bears grumpy face - he still has a quirky smile - but at least he looks like he's in a more festive mood!
Play Date Cafe - Colours - Two blues and a purple.... I think it was just as much the inspiration
for these colours as anything that moved me to create the background I have. I embossed the star in gold on watercolour paper, spritzed the paper with water and then added the colours - Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise and Elegant Eggplant using reinkers and my Aqua Painter.
The ribbons across the middle are both retired - the Pacific Point ribbon had the white stripes through the middle - I like how it looks with the turquoise on top.
Well, here's to a wonderful weekend - Hope you get all the little jobs done that are necessary at this time of year. Thanks for taking time to drop by for a visit - Joan
