Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge...thanks so much!


It's Monday already and the kids go back to school on Thursday of this week. The summer went by so quickly. I am off work for a few days in an attempt to get organized for the coming school year and hockey season, but all I want to do is stamp.

This card was made for Dawn's latest colour challenge. It was inspired by this card which I absolutely love. I'm wishing now that I had stamped the Moss cs with polka dots rather than used the pp as it just looks weird to me. The card itself is a 'scrapling' and measures 3.5" x 5.5".

I've realized lately that I have A LOT of cards sitting around with no purpose to them. I am trying to make cards that I can use, such as Birthdays and Thank Yous. I made this card for my wonderful, sweet co-worker Lorna who sits beside me at the office. On Friday she bought me this little orchid plant "just because," which I love so much. A few months ago she gifted me with some Orchid Pomegranate Liquor after a particularly crazy day when she thought I could use beverage. As you can see form the picture below, the bottle is just too pretty to open so I keep it in my craft room as a decoration. I am so lucky to have such a thoughtful friend and co-worker.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting my blog!
