I've been challenging myself with color/colour challenges and, also, to use all these patterned papers that seem to have been loved once and kicked to the corner =/
Colour Me - Subtle has used two shades of pink: strawberry and pale pink, and added pool party, a pale blue/green. Needless to say, I didn't have any of those. But, ta da, I found an awesome patterned paper from another TJ Maxx find from DCWV that not only had the colors but hints of fish-scale like patterns... did anyone else notice the fish in the inspiration photo? And - just like that! I missed the deadline!! Well, what's a girl to do?
When I'm in the craft cave, I have a little 19" tv/monitor that I normally have tuned in to the Food Network, or Turner Classic Movies. I certainly haven't seen many of these oldies/but/goodies but often times recognize some of the songs from them. Today "Taking a Chance on Love" caught my ear. It may have inspired this card for Time Out Challenge #8. It's so much fun CASE-ing Donna Mikasa - her cards so often inspire me. So I'm taking a chance on LOVE!
One last card for today ;] Seriously. This one for CASE Study #196.
I took the liberty of making my own little sentiment flag for the hot-air balloon, added a touch of Winnie & Walter and, on the inside: "I'm already blown away BY you!"
Have I mentioned how much I'm blown away by your friendly stop-overs? Thanks so much for leaving comments... it gets me through the day with a smiley face =] < SEE!
