Thanks, Friend

My boys went to play with friends today, and I was able to spend an hour in the hobby room.  Here is what I came up with.  :)  I was even able to clean up the mess I made.  Always a plus.  My mojo is definitely coming back.

If you are wondering about the colors, I got them from the color challenge at CR84FN.  I like the combo a lot.  Though I had to use a non-SU purple.  It is an old piece of  CM cardstock.

The sketch is from this week's Retro Sketches. 

I took some liberty with the size.  It is a 4 1/4 square card.  I also left off the swirly bit.  I was going to add it but couldn't decide which color to use.  

Instead I added a little detail in the top corner. :) Isn't that teeny tiny brad cute?  I was going to add a rhinestone, but I was curious to see just how small my new brads are. 

 It feels good to be crafting again.  I have a stack of challenges printed out and a list of cards I need to make.  All I need are time, energy and an air conditioner in the garage.  :)

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

What a great color combo! and I love doilies-do you have to punch out all the little pieces on yours? Great card-glad your mojo is returning!!

Beautiful card! Those colors are awesome together!

Yes, Andrea, I had to poke out most of them, but it was super easy. I used a stylus. I got this die before I had a Big Shot. It was SO hard to use in the Cuttlebug. I had several shims going on and still had to use an exacto knife to cut the hanging chads. My big shot cut it out so much better.

P.S. If I had remembered to roll the cut doily around a pencil or my stylus it would have been even easier. Most of them fall out when I do that.

Heather I am learning so much from you - today it is the idea of printing out challenges. I mean, how simple yet genius! I blame baby brain!

I really like this, the way you worked with the colours and interpreted the sketch is great.
