Monday's Treasures

Do you ever have paper you really like and use only occasionally?  Well,  I do love these colors so I've used this paper pack sparingly.  I've had it for at least 4 years!  This is just about the last of it.  This year it is my goal to stop worrying about using up my fave papers as more just keep coming,  I'd like to use some of these older CTMH packs to make room for new.  I probably have enough of this paper - Elegant Bouquet to make a couple more cards but then it will be gone and that's ok because I love all the papers and colors in the new CTMH Catty that came out Feb 1!

This card sketch design is from this week's Friday Mashup #145. and I sponged around the main stamped image.  I love to do that and it was part of the challenge.   This would be day #35 of our SCS 100x100 Challenge..    

Supplies:  CTMH Paper Elegant Bouquet, CTMH Stamps A1104 A Tweet, CTMH Ink Garden Green, Cocoa, Cranberry, CTMH Sparkle Ribbon Red, CTMH Organdy Ribbon Rounds, CTMH Sparkles Brown

Oh my, Lela, I am so with you on conserving my paper. It's like I just want to keep it stashed! Your card deserved this pretty paper and your bird is perched so lovely on it. Beautiful card to share with us at the Friday Mashup this week!

This is such a lovely card, Lela. Great take on the sketch and your use of sponging. Thanks for joining us this week at the Friday Mashup.

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!

The View from My Window
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.
