Kind Words Expressed

Verve photo PDCpicA.jpg

Loved this CCMC sketch and decided to use it for this week's Play Date Cafe colour combo of black and white plus a splash of coral.  Love adding a pop of colour to a black and white card!

Kept things pretty CAS.  Pulled out the flower from Kind Words (love this flower!) and inked the "center" on each flower.  Added a sentiment from Words Can Not Express (which just happens to be on sale right now) and a coral button. Quick and easy.

With the kids on spring break, it may get a bit quieter her on the old blog as we will be out and about a fair amount, or working on a few projects we need to get done around the house.  Just hoping the weather cooperates and gives us a little bit of sunshine so we can enjoy being outside a bit.  But not to much sunshine or I'll have to mow my lawn LOL! 

Have a fabulous day, and I'll be back as soon as I can.

Love those flowers...always have!! The coral leaves looks fabulous with the black stamens and black/white card!! We (well Bill) mowed the lawn last WE...could've been done before that but, I think he was putting it off!! He planted a lilac today....grew up with these but, don't see many in the south....cross fingers it'll take!!

I so adore your card, Marisa. I used to sing that song when I was in the choir at church, but can't navigate the stairs anymore. I love the colours, too.
Hugs,
