Hello friends. Hope you are having a lovely Friday. I have had a lovely day. I had some school Mum's here for lunch today (yummy Thai Sweet Potato Soup) and we had a fun afternoon of chatting and laughing. It was really lovely.
I did get to create last night. I had lots of fun playing and this is what I came up with. This set is Garden Whimsy and I used my markers to colour the stamp.
The background cardstock is our new Basic Gray cardstock, and this is the textured one. Did you notice that you can buy the neutral cardstock in mixed packs now? It's available as a mixed pack of Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Basic Gray. Basic Black, Going Grey and Sahara Sand. You get 4 of each (24 sheets) in the 12x12 smooth and textured, and 36 sheets (6 of each) in the A4.
This next one was a challenge to use the bold colours in Kristina Werners (see my blog side bar) latest colour challenge. It certainly was a challenge for me as I don't normally use such bold colours. The colours that had to be used were Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Purely Pumpkin, So Saffron. I never would have come up with those colours but I do like the effect! The centre stamp is from the It's All Good set which is a set of 4 for just $24.95! There's that yummy scallop punch again.
You will notice I have used the yummy wide grosgrain ribbons on both cards. These are available in 8 colours now. I have 4 spots left in a current ribbon swap where you can get 2+ metres of each colour. Read more on my swap page here.
Thanks for popping by to see what I have been up to. Have a great weekend,
