Well, it is Sunday night--time for my last post of the weekend. I really don't like it when we lose the hour, but I must say I enjoyed a walk late this afternoon with DH and DD (dear dog) during our extended daylight.
My first card of the day came together rather quickly this morning, because I realized I needed to link it up to The Challenge by noon. I linked from Flikr, and am now posting properly so I can also link at this week's Color Throwdown ctd282. I used a few Lil Inkers dies on this card--Stitched Rectangles, Stitched Stars and Fanfare. My colors are PTI--Limeade Ice, Pure Poppy and Harvest Gold.
My next card is my last entry for this week's Make it Monday #154: Color and Texture Tips for One Layer Cards. I used masking, score lines, and generational stamping for my card. The leaves are from Meadow Greens. I just love those ferns.
I fell in love with this week's sketch at Retro Sketches rs#105. I liked it so much, I used it twice--once for a guy using new stuff, and once for a gal using some older favorites.
Here is my masculine version, using Leave it Be and the Burlap Impression plate. The sentiment is from my all time favorite Paper Smooches set--Sentiment Sampler.
Here is my feminine take on the sketch, using Mums the Word and Background Basics Wrought Iron. On second thought, I wish I had used a different sentiment--maybe one with a more feminine font. Oh well. Those mums are stamped in Summer Sunrise and Raspberry Fizz, and coated with Wink of Stella.
Well, that's it for me. Based on my last few posts, I am feeling like a bit of a slacker for only posting 4 cards. Ha Ha. I start the online card class tomorrow, and am excited about all the new things I'm sure I will learn. Anyone else in that class?
