While the temp outside is going up I am enjoying the enclosure of my air conditioned craft room! The Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge over at Operation Write Home is to make cards with yellow and blue being the main colors. I accepted the challenge and made this card with scraps from three different paper lines.
The yellow stripe is from Echo Park. I don't remember the name of the line but it was a boy paper. The blue strip is Authentique's "Geniune". Love this paper for the western feel it has and works well for masculine cards too. The yellow polka dot was MME's birthday collection. I used a stamp for the sentiment and tied a piece of twine from my stash. Pretty simple but I liked the finished product.
Last night I went to a birthday party of a friend from church. He turned 50 a couple of weeks ago and his wife planned a huge surprise bash. I made him this card.
Ok, now that my creative juices are freely flowing I'm going back to my room to try to catch up on my page layouts for Sketch Inspiration and Cat's Creations. I only have 4 sketches to do to be caught up! Woohoo! I'm excited! If I manage to do all the sketches I will have complete 52 scrapbook pages!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I plan too!
