Creating For Fun With Annabelle
This Annabelle Stamps sketch was a fun one to work with so decided to play along this week. I combined it with this week's CR84FN challenge as I just loved the colour combination of kraft, yellow and grey.
My starting point was this wonderful Paper Salon striped paper. Love both sides of this paper as the flip side is lavender. Think I need to pick up a few more sheets next time I'm at my LSS - hoping they still have some!
A pretty straight forward card with lots of things I love on it: my new heart circle nesties (thanks again Tanis!), scallops and Verve's flutterby and charming oval dies. Quick and easy with some black accents to finish things off. However, now that I look at the picture, I'm thinking the addition of some embossing to the circle element would have been a good idea - may have to go back and try it to see if I like it. Darn hindsight....maybe I should just make it common practice to take a picture of my card, look at it, and then decided if I need to add/change anything before I post it. Welcome to my creative woes LOL!
Just realized the kids have their two week Spring Break starting March 12th (unless the teachers go on strike before then). Lost a week in there somewhere as I thought I still had two weeks to go. That flu bug really messed me up! Time to start planning some activities and outings along with some spring cleaning the kids can help with, which I'm sure they will be just thrilled to help with - NOT! (insert evil mommy grin lol).
Have a great day!
