Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful laid back day and I feel so very grateful for all the blessings in my life. And all of you reading and who come over to visit and are my dear blog friends totally are part of those blessings :)
Here are two cards made for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge # 32. It's amazing that we are on the 32nd challenge - wow! This week's color inspiration comes from the above cool picture from Crate and Barrel. It is from their section on Oversized Light Bulb ornament set. I enjoyed these colors together and made two cards for this challenge. The colors for this challenge was riding hood red, sahara sand, very vanilla and whisper white. We could also use a metallic color (gold or silver) to substitute for the sahara sand.
The first card is made for a sweet friend of mine who has been such an inspiration to me. I created a little sundae using my littlest circle punches which then I painted with liquid pearls and glitterized using Martha's coarse crystals. The background DP is also Martha's. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions and the Ribbon is Offray. The button is from my stash and I added a little red liquid pearls to the "cherry". The sundae container I cut out of a kraft like paper from an image that I drew and then outlined it in platinum stickles.
I followed Jen's Sketch For You to Try for this second card whose base is the very vanilla color. The red cardstock and the embossed gold cardstock have been in my paper stash for more than a year - as has the white with gold dots paper - so I am not sure which company they are from. The hearts are translucent stickers that I had since Valentine's day last year (not sure from whence they came) and I matted them twice for a little color contrast. I stamped the sentiment from Clear stamps and then matted it on to the red cardstock and cut it with some wavy scissors and adhered some red buttons onto one side.
Kristina also posted an informative entry about hot-linking. You can read about it here and here. I thought it was very informative and I learned alot. I usually save the color challenge image onto my computer and then upload it from there onto my blog - crediting Kristina for the image and from now on will also credit the source of that inspiration. It was good to read it and get a good reminder in blogging etiquette.
Well, I hope I will make it before the deadline cut-off ... its been crazy here to write this post in the middle of getting jammies on for 2 wee ones... Hope you are having a great weekend!
Thanks for coming over to visit!
