Quick Play





Got way lots to do today, and I've got some sort of sinus/allergy thing going on and all I do is cough, cough, cough. It's annoying more than anything.
Have you seen the inspiration photo over at Runway Inspired Challenge? Have a little peek...


Now, in my younger days before children, I might have worn this, but I'm fairly certain my mom would have never let me out of the house in this outfit as a teenager. Today...not so much. Still the colors and patterns are such fun I knew I wanted to play along. No pings however. Then this morning, over at CASual Fridays, the challenge is to use color blocks.


When I put the two challenges together, the ping made an appearance.


This was fast, easy and fun to make. SU white cardstock base and ink. Scraps (yay!!) for the rest, Hampton Arts Ki Flashback Collection sentiment stamp. And two little black blings from Want 2 Scrap. Easy Peasy. Happy Dances!

Oh my! You nailed this - it's so like the inspiration, but not in the obvious "monster in the middle of the card: way. Love it!

Wowzers girl! This is fantabulous! Seriously rocked the Runway challenge AND the Cas-ual Friday's challenge. Bright, fun, perfectly designed with a trendy, modern sentiment to match the vivid colors!

Hmmm.....I'm thinking that I'm not even as tall as the model's legs!!! And my wrists are probably wider than her thighs!

A fantastic card, Bev, and even more-so since you were able to use scraps. Great use of color blocking, with a pattern thrown in for good measure. Thanks so much for joining the CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week!
