Just a Note

Hi everyone! Hope you've had a wonderful weekend. I got a couple cards made and did some major organization in my craft room, so I'm feeling pretty good. :) One of the cards I made is for the challenge over at SRM Stickers. The challenge is to create a card or scrapbook page using the color orange and stickers. Orange isn't a color I use too often, but I love the pinky shade of orange from Papertrey Ink called Melon Berry. And I've just been dying to ink up the new Starburst stamp from Hero Arts...LOVE IT! I dressed it up a bit with some orange gems, a white gel pen and a button. The sticker used is from SRM Stickers Thinking of You sentiment sheet. Thanks for stopping by! Kelly

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21

Hi there! I'm snowed in at home today and probably will be for the next couple days until a plow comes and clears the massive drifts outside our house. On one side of our house we have a drift that is about 10 feet high! So, what better thing to do, than spend a little time in the craft room. ;) Today I want to share a card I made for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Challenge #21. I love color challenges because they allow me to try color combos that I would never put together on my own. And I ended up loving this one...I'll definitely be using it again. SUPPLIES: Hero Arts Three Flowers, Hero Arts Clouds, Hero Arts All Occasion Messages, Papertrey Ink Background Basics: Text Style, Papertrey Ink Cardstock (aqua mist, lemon tart, dark chocolate, vintage cream), VersaFine Vintage Sepia, VersaMark, Hero Arts Smooth Clear Gemstones, Bic Permanent Marker (moonstone yellow) If you ever have any questions on how something was done on one of my cards, please just ask. I don't include instructions, because I feel for the most part they are pretty self-explanatory. Thanks for visiting and for all your sweet comments...they always make me smile. Have a great day!
