Makeesha's Inspiration 7.

I have had some time to create due to having the flu and tonsilitis.  Not Swine flu just the garden variety flu.  I still feel gross none the less.  I was blog surfing at some of my fav sites and found Makeesha's colour challenge and thought I would give it a go.  Makeesha has a wonderful blog she is so talented and her blog is so inspiring.  You can find Keesh's blog here.

Here Challaenge is 

I thought I would try a little more vintage look.  Well layering of stamps.  I am still not a hundred percent sure that it works.  Any way that may be the medication talking.  So here is my design

Stamps : En Francais, Friends 24-7, Cute and Curvy, Best Yet (hostess set)

Card stock : Choc Chip, Very Vanilla

Ink : Choc Chip, Really Rust, Sage Shadow, Stazon Black, Encore Gold, Versa Mark

Accessories : Choc button (not the edible one), Label punch, Clear embossing powder, Sage Taffetta ribbon, Twine

Hope you like it.

Take care

Fifth Avenue Floral Autumn Bouquet

I am so sorry that it has been so long since I posted a card.  Life has been busy since my return from Convention, work, family and sick children that have now blessed me with there sickness.  I like this card as it looks like a nice bouquet of flowers.  Just what I need to get well.  Here's hoping I wake up tomorrow with a voice. :)

Fifth avenue floral is such a beautiful set, one of my favourites.  When I saw Kristina Werner's colour challenge I thought they would go together beautifully.  Kristina's blog is lovely and very inspiring and it can be found here.  Here is the challenge colours

Here is my take on Kristina's Challenge.

Stamps : Fifth Avenue Floral, Cute and Curly, Occasional Greetings

Card stock:  Sahara Sand, Whisper White, So Saffron

Ink:  So Saffron, More Mustard, Baja Breeze, Stazon Black

Accessories: Label punch, Antique Pewter Hodge podge, White Taffetta Ribbon

Hope you enjoyed it.  Take care
