Kinda Fun

It's kinda fun to make cards. Okay...it's waaay fun to make cards! I've been working on a scrapbook for the grandkiddies for Christmas, and I just had to feed my card making obsession this morning. There were withdrawal symptoms occurring...and I know that you know exactly what I mean.

There are a few scant hours left to play over at Color Throwdown. And a dear, dear friend had sent some goodies a little while ago, and I have been dying to use them. This was the perfect time and challenge to really put a few to good use!


Love this combination! Love all the fashion inspiration. Though I will admit those shoes hurt my feet just looking at them! 

Here's what I made:


The navy came out blackish, but it really is navy. All the dp, and the "Happy Day" sticker is from Fancy Pants. The silver disk and the branch are from my scrap box, as is the little heart. The heart has a dab of Wink of Stella on it. And now I'm off running with DH this morning. Happy dances everyone.

Colour combo, design, images, leafy die - your 'take' is wonderful! I wouldn't even know where to begin with this challenge, but you've certainly provided inspiration! Happy running about with your DH!

Well, you've added to my happy day with this delight, Bev ... fabulous splashes of vibrant pink in the branch and the glisten-y heart, I love the speckly card base ...and the precision in matching up the strips of chevron DP ... wow, girl, you're good! Anita :)

It sounds like you and I have the same opinion about the shoes!! I love how you used the colors! Thanks so much for playing along in the Color Throwdown with us!

Hey...that chevron paper is looking mighty familiar! You created a really cool 'washi tape' look - awesome job!

Love the brilliant pop of coral. The navy chevron strip is the perfect take on the long-legged denim jeans! Great job interpreting the sketch!

This is lovely. Love the color combination, the chevron, cute little heart and that card base cardstock. Do you mind sharing were that card base cardstock is from?
