While I’m flying away :)

I find it rather amusing to be sitting here typing this, knowing that when it (hopefully) publishes on Friday I will be on my way to Queensland!!!! I have also set my Magnolia challenge card to post on Sunday and I’m crossing my fingers that it all works the way it should. I will be back to *normal* by Monday, so you won’t even have a chance to miss me!

This is a card I did the other day for the SCS colour challenge but of course I have packed up the piece of paper that says which one it is and don’t have time to go track it down right now…if you really want to know you can find it in the list of colour challenges :)


So the challenge was to use Bordering Blue, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron, with Choc Chip as an optional colour. Obviously I chose to use Choc Chip as I thought it went well with the others. I used the cute Tilda with Tulips for this one and coloured her with Copics. I mounted her on dimensionals onto PP and the CC. The Saffron CS was stamped with the large flower from Cheap Talk in Saffron ink and then the smaller one in Choc Chip…clearly I did NOT use my stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up properly, but I’m going with the idea that the slight offset of the Choc flowers gives the background and extra charm…LOL. I also used one of the sentiments from that set and stamped it in Choc Chip ink. I used some Saffron embroidered ribbon from the retired Ribbon Originals and a couple of Primas with a rhinestone brad in the centre. Oh yeah, and I used the eyelet border punch on the Saffron panel.

Hope you are all having a fabulous Friday…I know mine will be because I get to see my darling nieces and nephew as well as Madonna and her lovely husband Mark. It’s going to be a great day for sure :)

Isn't the advance scheduling thing grand? Cute card! I colored and used one of the images you sent me. I think I used a bazillion Copics, and I made a list of the ones I do not have that I need. THAT was not supposed to happen!! :-)

She has so much dimension, she looks like she is jumping off the paper. Amazing!

I'm with Leslie: a very cute card. You had me at So Saffron :)

Once I found out about pre-posting, I use it all the time! It is great isn't it???

This card is stunning. I love that flower too - straight or not. Probably because it's not - straight and everything I do is always off kilter a little bit. Most likely because I never take out my Stamp-a-ma-jig!

Enjoy your weekend.
