Kazan's Sketch #43 and SPCC # 29

What an exciting night for me. I went to get this weeks color challenge from SPCC and guess what....can you guess???? I made TOP 5 for Challenge #28. Thank you once again for such a great honor. It made my day!!!! :). If you would like to see the card click here. Congratulations to the winners and the other TOP 5 Crafters.

Now on to the card for the night. I went to 2 Sketches 4 You and saw that Kazan's had put Sketch #43 up. Right away I knew what stamp I would use and that I should tie it together with the difficult color challenge from SPCC #29. You should check out these challenge sites they are always amazing and all the Diva's and Creator's do a wonderful job on the color combo's and sketches each week.

Kazan's Sketch #43, it was another great sketch to create with.

Samantha this color combo was a challenge for me alright (LOL), but I think I was able to make it work.
Here is my creation. I made this birthday card for a friend of mine. I am hoping she will like it.

Stamps: It's Your Birthday and Thoughts & Prayers (both SU)
Paper: Brillant Blue, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Lavender Lace, Whisper White
Ink: Markers (SU), Brillant Blue, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Lavender Lace and Basic Black.
Accessories: Rose Red Ribbon, Swiss Dots and Perfectly Paisley folders(Cuttlebug), dimensionals and paper piercer.

The hardest part for me was how I should lay the colors out. It was nice to relax and create something today. I am still in pain but nothing like a little music, some good challenges to take my mind off of it for a while :). I was hoping to get a few challenges done but I had to take down all of my christmas stuff. My house looks so bare now...LOL, but it is back to normal.

Tomorrow, I am lucky enough to have my parents, and my friend Leanne come for a visit. Leanne will be bring my other friends kids with her. It is a truly going to be a great day. With Leanne their is always so many laughs and giggles.

Wishing you all the most wonderful day tomorrow, if I don't get on here. Happy crafting and thanks for stopping in. I enjoy seeing you and your comments.

  9. I just visited my blog and saw your comment. Everyone who crops with me will testify to the fact that I own a bag of platic plates, cups, bowls that I use for my circles. Measuring is not my strong suit (I must have been absent in school that week!) so I just pull out the plate, bowl or cup that works for the size. I also have a 3/4 inch circle punch that is my most used punch for scallopped borders. Just punch a bunch line up or place around a predrawn circle and voila! Good luck - and sorry about the novel I just wrote! Your work is beautiful!

  10. Wow this is beautiful. Love the way you worked our colors :).
