A Heartfelt Thankyou

With a Sketch From
Atlantic Hearts and two CTMH paper packs.
 One of the fun things about this current Seasonal Expressions is you
 can mix and match the papers from different packs. On this card I
 mixed the No Worries paper pack with the Prickly Pear paper pack
The flowers and leaves were cut with White Daisy and
sponged with Raspberry and Fern ink.
This fun sketch from Atlantic Hearts was used to make my card.
If you missed the fun with this sketch another one will be posted on Monday.
Be sure to check it out and come play at Atlantic Hearts.
CTMH Supplies:
B&T Duos: No Worries, Prickly Pear
Cardstock: White Daisy
Stamps: Happy Heart

A Heart 2 Heart Color Challenge

With Emerald, Blossom, and Lemon
One of my downline gave me a new fun stamp set from Heartfelt Creations.
I normally only use CTMH products but this flower stamp set
was so pretty I had to give it a try. 
With the colors at the Heart 2 Heart challenge it seemed just perfect
to play with this stamp set. I colored the flower with Blossom
and Lemon and the leaves with Emerald and Lemon to soften
the boldness of the Emerald green.

Use these colors below and come play at Heart 2 Heart.
CTMH Supplies:
Fundamentals: Adventure
Cardstock: White Daisy, Blossom, Cocoa
Glitter paper: Gold
Thin Cut: Hello-Thanks
Embossing Folder: Simple Chevron

Color Challenge 246

Mixing it up with Colors of No Worries
This is a real color challenge at Color My Heart this week:
Cocoa, Lemon, Smoothie, Sea Glass, Cashmere, and White Daisy.
As a consultant, sometimes my customers or downline give me a gift.
Now what do you give a die hard CTMH product user? Something that is
not CTMH. Right? Well, one of my downline gave me a new flower stamp
set from Heartfelt Creations. ( At least the Heart was in the company name).
Anyway when I checked the artwork using this stamp set I had to give it a try.
The colors at this week's Color My Heart were just right for this Sunrise Lily.
In case you're wondering where the Sea Glass is I sponged the leaves with it
and Cashmere. Somehow the straight Sea Glass was not working with this flower.
CTMH Suppplies:
B&T Duos: No Worries
Cardstock: White Daisy, Smoothie, Cocoa
Stamps: Sunrise Lily from Heartfelt Creations, Jack
Ink: Smoothie, Lemon, Cocoa, Sea Glass, Cashmere
Embellishments: Mocha Opaques

Color Dare 245

Little Dreamer
Color My Heart challenge this week is with the Little Dreamer paper pack.
During my endeavor to clean out my CTMH stash of unused items
I ran across this card from Artfully Sent that was never used. The colors in
the Little Dreamer seemed perfect for a cheerful and happy card. 
I used a sample of each paper for the letters and accented
with the flowers from Happy to be Friends.
Be sure to share your creations with Little Dreamer 
this week at Color My Heart.

a triple layer star using the basic star thin cut (available only

Everyday Life

In Retirement Land
Heart 2 Heart challenge for Everyday Life got me to thinking. 
Since being retired everyday is like Saturday. No worries about
what time it is or where do I have to be or what do I have to do.
No clocks to rule the day. Everything gets done on my schedule.
Whether it's sipping my favorite drink, lounging in my favorite
chair, or chilling under the umbrella everyday is a Saturday. 
OMG...It's Sunday and I need to get this post up for
Atlantic Hearts.  No worries. I still have time. 
If you missed this sketch at Atlantic Hearts a new one will
be posted tomorrow. Be sure to check it out and come play.

Coming Up Roses

With Live Beautifully 
Heart 2 Heart Challenge "Coming Up Roses" worked
just great with the Color My Heart Live Beautifully
 paper pack for National Scrapbooking Month.
To make a layered rose just stamp the rose 3 or 4
times and cut out different sections of the rose. Edge
each section with a sponge to accent the section. Pop up 
each layered section and add bitty pearls in the center. 
You still have time to play at Heart 2 Heart and Color My Heart
and share your special creations with us.

B&T Duos: Live Beautifully
Cardstock: Thistle, White Daisy
Stamps: Live Beautifully, Happy Birthday
Ink: Thistle, New England Ivy

Heart 2 Heart

Meets Color My Heart
The color challenge at Color My Heart is inspired by the colors of 
 Little Dreamer: Glacier, Juniper, Canary, and Thistle 
The Teeny Tiny challenge at Heart 2 Heart inspired me to
make some inchies. So....what do you do with inchies?
I used them to accent some tags so I can have tags for any occasions.
Play along at Heart 2 Heart and you could become an Addict, a Darling
and/or a Sweetheart. And join the fun at Color My Heart with the Little 
Dreamer color inspirations.
