Our Creative Corner has challenged people this week to use something that they purchased a while ago, but haven't used yet. I bought this wonderful "Chairs for You" set from Flourishes almost a year ago. They got buried and then one day I saw a card someone had made where they used DSP for the upholstery of the chair - that clicked in my head, but I still didn't pull out the set. So - today I did. I used Bella Bleu paper for the entire card - I just love it! The sketch is from Sweet Stop Sketch.
The flowers are from Mulberry Street. I don't have much of this sort of thing in my house - but I did buy these on an outing not too long ago. The middle flower is actually white, but I took my SU water colour crayons and Aqua Painter and touched it up with Creamy Carmel so it wasn't so stark against the Vanilla/Kraft base.
My second card is for yesterday's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS....HamiltonGal. I picked Laurie's card - here - as my inspiration. I changed the colours and used DSP which was not on the original card. I hadn't used my "Build-a-Brad"s for ever so long that I figured they would work well on this card.
And finally - I know it's not that big a deal to the world - but I FINALLY finished my 2000 piece candy cane puzzle today. My husband bought it for me about 4 years ago, and though I am a professed puzzaholic, I balked at this one. I just
couldn't get my head around it. I was told I wouldn't get any more puzzles unless I finished it - that didn't even get me started until this year. I began about a week or two before Christmas - and put the last piece in today. Now I just have to decide which puzzle to do next - until I buy a new one!!!!
I hope you are having a wonderful day - and that you're enjoying watching the Olympics - if it is something you do.
