I took the GSG challenge and made a retiring sets card in today's SCS color challenge of Kraft, Soft Sky and Basic Black. I love this combination of colors, but don't know that I would have ever come up with it on my own. I pulled three soon to be retired sets to create this card. The flowers are from Office Accoutrement, the sentiment from It's Your Birthday and the corner decorations are from the solid flower in the Polka Dots and Paisley set. I am most proud of my corners as I wasn't sure how it would turn out . . . would it be an enhancement? or a detraction? The corners just "needed" something and I think it turned out just fine. Yeah!
Supplies I used to create this card:
Stamps: Office Accoutrement, It's Your Birthday, Polka Dots and Paisley
Paper: Basic Black, Kraft, Soft Sky
Ink: Versa Mark, Basic Black Craft
Accessories: Black Journaler, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Vintage Brad, Dimensionals, Coluzzle, Black Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun
My kids recently wrecked their digital camera . . . not the best timing since they are hard at work on their 4-H photography projects. I'm not much into letting them borrow mine so off we went to the camera store today. All three of them are totally into saving their money so they didn't even have to borrow from mom to purchase a new one. But, we took a step in a different direction today. For years we have used only Cannon cameras, but today, we purchased an Olympus Stylus camera because it can take a beating! They had a heads up with this one when their aunt and uncle recently purchased one and after checking it out, decided they wanted one, too. It's not only drop proof, it's waterproof too . . . they tried it out in the sink immediately. I couldn't bear to look, but I guess it turned out just fine . . . at least it's still working! It even takes the cold . . . important when you are on a snowmobiling trip with dad. I'm anxious to check it out myself . . . if they let me borrow it. So far, not!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
