Yesterday I awoke to rain, real rain, not just a pretense. It was a much cooler day and I go a lot done in my stamp room and in the dining room and kitchen. I was interrupted by the arrival of boxes from my brother. They contained cups and saucers belonging to my parents. I had to stop and unpack more boxes then find places to put the cups. That took up my stamping time, about two hours. Iwas so tired after unpacking and all the clean up that I did not stamp.
I got up this morning determined to get some card making done. The colors this week for the challenge are Rose Red, Bordering Blue, and Pink Pirouette. I am going to miss the soft pink, as it has retired. It took me awhile to think up a card. My brain just would not work yesterday. Today, however, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This simple card uses Pink Pirouette for the card base, Rose Red Ink with the Medallion Stamp and Bordering Blue Ink to stamp the butterfly on Whisper White. Cutting out the butterflies, glittering them, took the longest of any of the stages making this card. I got pictures when I took my cats outside for their evening outing.
Be sure and go to the Color Throwndown Challenge blog to look at all the entries or why don't you try and do a card and play along with everyone. It is really fun, keeps card makers motivated to make that perfect card every week. Thanks to Danielle for the great colors and all the ladies on the team. Have a great weekend. Celebrate, make a few cards.
