Now, for something completely different.....

I am waiting on my birthday present to myself to arrive....hopefully tomorrow! A whole heap of delicious new goodies from SU! New stamps from the new mini catty (die-cut...no sore fingers...yay!), some new inks, papers, rub-ons, buttons, eyelets...ooohhh and a crop-o-dile!! I've been looking at my stuff and while I have some lovely things, I just feel like I need some new stuff to spark my creativity...you know what it's like....it's an addiction and it needs to be fed!!!

Anyway, tonight I looked through some challenges I'd printed out for my inspiration book and found a couple that I thought I'd incorporate to come up with something completely different... hence the title of this post.

The sketch I used is Laura's sketch 2 from http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com/, as I said in the last post, I love these girls sketches...they totally rock...and they're looking for new DT members if you are interested. The colours are from a SCS colour challenge called "Taken with White Wasabi"...not sure what number it is, but it's fairly recent. The colours are obviously Taken with Teal, Whisper White and Wild Wasabi.

I have stamped the butterflies from Garden Whimsy in Versamark onto Vellum CS and embossed them in white...an idea I took from the fabulously talented Teneale Williams, you can see the card she made by clicking on the link. Mine is completely different, she used the butterfly from A Touch of Nature, which I don't have, but I have to give credit where it's due. She is an amazing stamper and I am constantly awed by her talent. The sentiment is from 'Warm Words' and is stamped in Taken with Teal, and the ribbon is double stitched Wild Wasabi. This pic is not very good as I took it at night, but strangely enough this colour combo really appealed to me.

I'm thinking about doing a few more cards tonight....or I might just go to bed and read a book... OMG...I've just seen the weather report and we're expecting snow up on the mountains to the east of here tomorrow...I may just spend the whole day in bed!!! I really hate the cold weather...bring on summer I say!
