Almost Friday

Thursday .... that day when it's "Almost Friday" :)   Haha!  Here's a shout out to my wonderful and fun work team mate Kathryn.   It's always "Almost Friday" in our world ... unless we're happy dancing that it is Friday!   Woohoo!  

I love Friday's even more now that our Color My Heart Color Dare Challenges are on Fridays!  Always something to look forward to.   There were GREAT entries last week,  hop on over and check them out for some great inspiration.   This week,  Challenge #36 is using Outdoor Denim, Blush, Hollyhock and Sunset.   These colors are found in the paper pack Claire (hint, hint) but if you're like me you don't have that paper pack (gasp! I know) it was pretty fun to try to come up with something.  The background paper is from Chantilly.   

The sketch I used this week is from Sketch Frenzy Friday.    

Supplies:  All CTMH - DSP Chantilly,  CS Outdoor Denim, Sunset, Hollyhock;  Stamps C1494 Card Word Puzzle,  D1476 Card Chatter, D1477 Universal Backgrounds;  Ink Hollyhock, Sunset, Outdoor Denim,  Buttons Pink Assortment

Love your card, Lela! You did a great job of combining these colors without using Claire! All of the elements fit very nicely with the sketch you chose! thanks for the inspiration!

So very pretty. I love the strip of Sunset against the pink background. I never think of combining orange and pink, but it WORKS. I really love how you used so many layers of different stamps and colors on the back panel without the sentiment getting swallowed up. And those buttons are adorable! It's really amazing how many extra touches you added without overwhelming any one part. Great job!!

I think i mentioned in an earlier Dare post that orange was my favorite colour when i was a kid...So I LOVE that strip of border-punched Sunset down the side of your card. I'm with Becca on the inspired use of the Chantilly paper and the amazing job you did layering stamps for your sentiment strip. Happy Friday! ;)

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
