PTI Blog Hop- April 2012


I love, love the photo that is inspiration for the PTI April Blog Hop
Can't you just see a girly nursery, or a beautiful shabby chic/Rachel Ashwell boudoir, using these fabrics/wallpapers/colors? I used many of my background stamps and made quite a few samples using the pinks and aquas. However, what I ended up with is all texture and patterned paper. All of those stamped backgrounds will be saved for future girly-ness!

ColourQ Challenge #133- Take Two

Well.... here I am again, re-cycling some of my ColourQ #133 bits from the still incredibly messy crafting cave/desk. I see these colors as more "masculine"- so how is it that my cards always turn out looking so, hmmm, un-manly?
OK, I have to tear myself away and do something outside..... it's a beautiful  79 degree day in upstate NY!!

ColourQ Challenge #133


I am back for another ColourQ combo! This truly was a "challenge" to create something pleasing to my eye, as the colors are quite out of my comfort zone and not my usual "girly" hues.
I suppose that is what's intended...... to stretch yourself a bit, right?
