Nature's Thoughts

 Just a quick post today after completing the challenge over at Fab Friday.  They've been asking for creations using all of the new In Colours.  Not always an easy feat - but I'm happy with my result although it has no greeting right now.

I chose to use Positive Thoughts with the coordinating dies.  This is a set that I bought mostly because of the sentiments it included.  I need to work on grouping foliage together - just needs practice.

That's all for now

Green Thank You

Today I've created a card to meet two challenge requirements - Freshly Made Sketches and Just Add Ink.  Although, my card isn't right on with the sketch... I've got the vase hanging below the circle.

I've used Designer Series Paper from the "In Good Taste" series and the stamps come from the "Boho Indigo Product Medley as does the ribbon.  When I saw the inspiration photo from Just Add Ink, I immediately thought of the basket looking vase from this set.  To colour the leaves, I sponged Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green onto the stamp.  I wanted the leaves to echo the ones on the DSP.   The trim comes from the "Ornate Borders" dies.

That's all for today.
Thanks for stopping by.

A Day Without Coffee

 It's been quite a while since I've posted to my blog....I've been busy creating for and doing my Facebook Lives.   I had my "Nothing's Better Than" stamp set on my desk when I checked out what the Color Throwdown was challenging us with this week and decided it was time to do a challenge....the colours and design of this stamp set went together for me.

I've used Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz, Daffodil Delight and Balmy Blue for my colours.  The background is created from the Swirly Frames set.  It all just says 1960's to me, or makes me think of The Jetsons.  I love this new set with all the words and images it offers.

That's it for today.....think I'll grab a cup of coffee, a book and go sit on my deck in the sun.
Hope you can relax today too.
