Steel Blue, Grey & Yellow.............


What a wonderful colour combo and once again I wouldn't have put them together myself, thank goodness for CR84FN and the inspiration they give.


Yesterday, I received my first stamp set from Inspired by Stamping, I wanted to use them straight away even though I should be getting my things ready for Bromsgrove's Cropaganza tomorrow. I've got to say they are a pleasure to stamp with, giving a lovely crisp image even with using Tim Holtz Distress inks, that don't normally like clear stamps.I also used sketch #42 from Cardabilities.


Yesterday, I went to the Hobbycrafts show at the N.E.C. and had a great day out with Maria and Lyn, my crafting buddies. I was on the look out for a Cheery Lyn doily die which I'd seen Stella using recently, I went for the French Pastry which was just the right size for cards, I cut it out using some yellow Prima paper. I also reached for my Amy Butler Lotus papers, as these were perfect for this colour challenge.


The Inspired by Stamping stamp set was Birthday Wishes which is full of sentiments, frames and pretty icons, perfect for inside and outside your card, the frame stamp was perfect to use with Nestibilities as are all the sentiments.

Supplies
Stamps- Inspired by stamping,
Papers- K&CO Amy Butler, Prima
Dies- Sissix, Nestibilities, Cheery Lyn

As I said earlier, it's Bromsgrove's Cropaganza tomorrow so that's 12 hours of scrapbooking, including three classes with the talented Ifa Zainon. I'm soooo looking forward to it and will show you my projects sometime next week.

Have a great weekend !!!!!

Now did you make the card first and was the challenge based on your card or was it the other way around ;-) It's that perfect! Fantastic quote, too, so very true!! Ira xxx
