It is so nice to stay in touch with friends from Iowa. I miss the times of sharing ideas and learning new things from them. It is such a joy to receive cards and beautiful projects from them and such a joy to send them cards and projects I’ve made. Annette happens to be (in my opinion) one of the best for making CAS, beautiful, elegant cards. Always a thrill to receive a card from her. I have used her ideas for cards more than once. Anywho, back to her card. We happen to be FB friends also. She posts a grateful post every day. I have noticed she mentions seeing flowers often. So decided on the perfect image for her card. I used Mo’s “Flower Jar” for her card.
I colored it using Copics
Lavender Flowers: V12 V04 V28 V99 Poppies: R14 R35 R46 R59 Y21 Y28 Greenery: G21 G94 G99 Daisies: Y17 YR02 YR14 YR18 E15 Jar: C1 C3 C5 Outline: C0 C1
Now to start Christmas cards! Thank you for stopping to visit with me for a while. Always appreciate the love you leave.
Ok, this should be a really hard one for anyone to guess what that would be!! Yes, Linda, I can hear you laughing and shouting “ORANGE”! Orange with some blue, green and yellow. Really all the earth tone colors would work. LOL
So ladies let’s see your favorite colors on a card or project for the next challenge. It will be from June 22 – July 12th. You can use any stamps and post them on the Little Darlings Challenge Blog.
Onto my card. I just loved this image as soon as I saw it. The look of pure joy on her face! I knew exactly how I wanted to do the card and for once it turned out that way. I used ”Just Swingin” you can find it here at the Love to Stamp Store.
I had to make the card as a tent card. It just had to swing!!!! The directions are here made by the super talented Dena.
