Just a Note...

Hi!!  I have actually had some time to stamp the last few days after a very busy few weeks!! I do still have quite a hefty to-do list but I really wanted to stamp for a while so I took a break and did just that!

Here is one of the cards I made.  You all know how much I LOVE color...


This uses the colors from the Curtain Call Color Challenge #65.  What fun colors to work with!

Can you see the text impression plate I used on the white cardstock?  It is unbelievable to me what a little bit of impression does to a plain white card base! 


This card also qualifies for the Wee Memories "For the Love of Ribbon" challenge.  I know I only used white ribbon, but I love how crisp and fresh it is and how much it adds to the bright colors on the card!


So, what do you think?  Is is colorful enough?  It sure brightens up this cold and icy Kansas day!! We have no school today due to the ice we've had coming down.  Have I mentioned how ready I am for Spring!!?


If you get a chance, play along with the challenges!! They are so much fun and really get your mind working...sometimes outside of your comfort zone! :)  Have a great day!

  13. Jen, I'm so glad you had a chance to play - because this card is a RIOT of fun! I love the way you've layered the cut edges like this - I've never seen that particular die used like that before! The twine is such a perfect touch with this - it all works so well together!
