Now she's been in bed for quite a while, and mum has her craft time! YAY! I'd still like to make a card or two tonight though, so I better get on with sharing what I've done so far :)
Here's one for CAS60 - Inspired by Carly. I used the lovely colours of Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 23. That's another colour combo from our fearless leader Stacey Schafer, that I can't get enough with...
EDIT: I just saw that three of the Curtain Call girls - Julie, Stacey and yours truly, were crowned in the ColorQ blog today! Yippee!
Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: Grant, Kaisercraft Blushed; stamps: Inkadinkado; ink: Grant Black; glitter: Reeves; border punch: EK Success; other: ribbon, button, twine
Next I've got a card for Kazan's sketch 49, and the colours are (again) from Embellish Stitching Color Challenge. The card is also just the perfect entry for The Pink Elephant Challenge #60 - Pastels.
Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; paper: Grant, digital; sentiment sticker: Grant; ink: Versa Color Umber, Celadon, Grant Light Pink; sewing machine; paper flower: Kaisercraft; chipboard tag: DCWV; chipboard star: Lil' Davis Designs; rhinestones: Kaisercraft; other: ribbon, button, twine, lace
Lastly, I made one for Mercy's new sketch MTSC67, using the colours of CC264: Bermuda Gray Saffrons, and following the ingredients of TSG48:
- 3 different colors
- 2 different designer papers
- 1 button
- 1 Ribbon
- No other embellishments
Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; paper: Grant, Kaisercraft Argentella, My Mind's Eye Be Loved; sentiment sticker: SRM Stickers; stamps: Stampin' Up! Bloomin' With Beauty; ink: Versa Color Lagoon Blue, Grey, ColorBox Black; bronze metallic pen: Signo; watercolour pencils: Belgrave; border punch: Fiskars; ribbon: Sullivans; other: button, twine
I'm sorry for not so good quality of the photos... I don't like taking them in the light of the lamp, but I didn't want to wait until tomorrow either :) I hope you like them!
I'd also like to THANK each one of you SO MUCH, for giving me constant support, love and loads of joy!! Every morning, when I open my mailbox and read through all the SUPER comments that you left me overnight, it's my absoloutely favourite time of the day. Without you, I wouldn't be here, and most of these cards wouldn't probably exist. I'm doing it because it's my passion, that's right... but let's face it - I'm also addicted to YOU my lovely peeps and friends!! :D That's also why I keep creating, because there's nothing more rewarding than to see that my humble craft inspired you.
So - I don't stress this all too often, but you're the best!
I mentioned it once or twice already that I have some big plans scheduled for later this year, that include giving you some love too, and I hope it's not going to be long now... fingers crossed!
Have a wonderful evening,
