In a rush...

Hi peeps! It's been a long day, and full of "adventures". You know, one of these days, that the more you have to do, the more obstacles you find on the way. After some time spent swearing over things not cooperating, we started (hubby & me) to think that objects around us have secretly signed a pact to stop us from leaving. Duh!
But! - we are now roughly packed, and we're leaving shortly after noon tomorrow! Considering that it's already (and again) 2.30 a.m., and there's no more appropriate time for me to be fast asleep, I'll better make this post quick...

Firstly a woot - or two, actually!
I'm happy beyond measure to have found my card being featured in Embellish Magazine again! This time it's for the Embellish Dimension Color Challenge. Also, I made it to the Top Five at CAS-Tastic Wednesday, with my one-layer card! Me so happy :D

Now, I'd like to share with you my sample for this week's Color Dare (CD68 - Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry & Old Olive). I'm giving FTTC68 another go with this one (the challenge is about making our own flowers)


Supplies: cardstock: Quill, Bazzill; paper: DCWV, Basic Grey; stamps: Papertrey Ink (Turning A New Leaf), Flourishes (Taglines); ink: StazOn (Olive); ribbon: Totally Twill Moss Green; border punch: Fiskars

I also made two very quick cards this evening, and I have to apologize for the quality of the photos... all of the sudden, Corel decided that it throws a fit, and you don't want to know what strange routes these had, on the way from the camera to here :P
You may also notice, that they're both in similar & not too "chupish" style. It was not planned, neither I knew that I'm feeling "woodsy" tonight. They just happened like this. lol

Here's one for SC282 and CWC005 - A Touch Of Green.



Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: SEI, hand-made paper (The Watermark Paper Mill); stamps: Penny Black; ink: ColorBox (Copper); burlap: Sullivans; Cuttlebug & a new embossing folder that I don't know the name of (lol); white gel pen; other: string

...and on the card below I used Kazan's sketch 53 & cQc #34. I'm continuing torturing my old trousers...

Supplies: cardstock: Quill; stamp: Prima (flourish only); ink: Versa Color (Umber, Bark), StazOn (Timber Brown); brown marker; a stripe of denim; ribbon: 1.5 Inch Green Gingham; pearls: Kaisercraft; string: Papertrey Ink; other: button, synthetic leaves, flowers & grasses

These are going to be my last non-DT challenge uploads in the next six weeks... unless some of my already prepared samples happen to meet the criteria o_0 I'll miss them a lot, that's for sure...
Alright folks, wish us smooth sails, and that Chuplet won't scream all the way to England! I'm so looking forward to spending over 24 hours, with the three of us confined to the passenger seats... *rolls eyes*
I'll do my best to share some fresh photos with you along the way.
Thanks for visiting! {{hugs}}
