Curtain Call Act 38




Loved the inspiration picture... hmmm....wonder why LOL!   The colours Stacey chose are delicious.  However, since I don't own any Razzleberry yet, I never know which colour to substitute for it!

This time I went with an eggplant colour even though it is a darker colour, and also had to substitute an orange I had on hand for the Pumpkin.  Nothing like having to bob and weave your way through a colour combo!  However, one thing does remain constant - when there is green in the mix, there are usually flowers on my card :)

I decided to make a second card using this week's Sweet Sunday sketch.  It is such a fun sketch to work with and the large panel is perfect for stamping some flowers.  Nothing too fancy on this card, just lots of flowers and therefore a fun card to create :) 

The rest of the Curtain Call Crew, as well as this month's Guest Designer, Silke Ledlow, have some samples for your inspiration. 
And, our July Guest Designer, Silke Ledlow at My Life.


We'd love it if you joined us too!!  Simply create a card using this week's colours and add your card to Mr. Linky on Stacey's blog.  If  you are uploading to a public gallery, please make sure to use the keyword Curtain Call 38.  Each week, Stacey will select one person to receive her "I Got The Lead At The Curtain Call"  Award as well as five people to receive her "I'm A Top 5 Curtain Call Show Stopper" Award which you can post on your blog, so come on over and join the fun!

Next week is our church's VBS.  That means about 250 kids on campus and lots and lots of noise, fun, singing, energy (oh to have their energy level at my age!), supervising, talking, interacting, being crazy and a whole lot more, which in turn means one tired out mommy LOL!!  Therefore, I have no clue if I'll have any creative energy to be able to stamp and post this coming week.  Hopefully there will be a little left over to be able to do so!  Have a great week and I hope to be back sooner than later!

Lovely work with those colours Marisa! So cheerful! Great cutting work! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your VBS week even if it was tiring! Now hopefully you'll find a little bit of time to relax...in the craft room. I'm going to have to pencil it into my schedule but I'll make it work somehow.

Thanks for all your fabulous and uplifting comments. Hope you are enjoying your summer.
