Fresh Creation

 I do not like how my camera deals with Cherry Cobbler paper!  It's always so dark - even when I "fix" it through editing, it just doesn't look like it does in real life.

Oh well - today's card comes courtesy of Create with Connie and Mary and Freshly Made Sketches.  I knew as soon as I saw the sketch that I wanted to create a scene that I split into panels.  Unfortunately I don't have many sets that can work that way - and I'm NOT getting more!!!! (Who am I kidding - of course I'll get more as soon as the new mini comes out! - Duh!)  The colours today are from Create with Connie and Mary - Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard and Basic Black.

I created a second card for my Mother's friend since I wasn't sure how happy I was with the Concord one.  I'm going to send both of them to her and she can make her selection.

The sky looks like it's not quite sure what kind of weather it wants to throw at us today - I got all my plant pots and deck furniture dealt with yesterday so I'm pretty much ready for anything now.

Hope you're having a wonderful day - and thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Beautiful cards! love the field of flowers and I love the vintage look on the second one! The ribbon looks like a drape - love the effect!

Two beautiful cards! The field of flowers on the first one, separated into three panels is a very pretty card! and the vintage look of the second one with that great ribbon is gorgeous too! and I am with you .. I always think I have enough stamps until a new catalog comes out or I see someone do something with a set I dont have! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

I love cards made with one image that is split into panels. They always look so awesome and this is no exception! The fussy-cut butterfly is a pretty addition. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

I love both cards Joan but the second one with the vintage music and the embossing really caught my eye! Love the collage feel to that card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Beautiful cards Joan! I love the collage stamping on the second one but your use of the wildflower stamp on the first one is genius! Love how it looks stamps multiple times and the panel approach is just gorgeous. Very creative use of our colors this week! So glad you joined us at CCMC!
