Create Along With Us March 2018

Yayyy Fridayyyy~

stamps: Papertrey Ink Words of Comfort/Garden Party leaves  die: Papertrey Ink Garden Party

Sympathy cards are the hardest for me to start on.

The following challenge gave me a jump~

I chose Lexi Daly's

card to pull from.

 Her mostly white, with a pop of color seemed a good match for a different theme~one in which I hope I don't need.

However, life is life and it helps to be prepared.

Thanks for stopping by friends~

Bold Ricky

I have more tags from the Ikea set~

I decided to feature the raccoon. :)

stamp: Tim Holtz Clear Stamps Phrases 2  die: Papertrey Ink Brushed Off Rectangle   other: Ikea Tag

With a head start like this tag, there's no where to go except bold!

Thanks for looking~

Live Green

This is the month of green.
I miss my father-in-law so much~but especially during March.
He legit used to look like a leprechaun. :)
 One thing he did, was live simply~but at peace.

stamp: Unity Give love-Laugh Lots sentiment, Papertrey Ink Doodlie-Do/Spruce & Sprigs  dies: Papertrey Ink Doodlie-Do/Spruce & Sprigs/Brushed Off Rectangle, Avery Elle Wonky Squares

I picked up on the green broken patterns in the following photo~but went with warm shades rather than cool.

Grey and black were used to break up the green~
Thanks for stopping in!

You Were Made for Amazing Things

Today my eldest girlie turned 22~

she. is. AMAZING.

stamps: Verve Great Friend/Beautiful Things  dies: Verve Great Kindness, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circles

I am in awe of all she's become~

The lovely Verve inspiration here gave me a start for her card...

I don't usually use green for her~maybe because she's always been a pink gal.

Lately, however, she's open to all colors...

and more veggies too. :)

Thanks for stopping in~

Color Wheel Collage

hosted by Lexi Daly

It's a fun one folks!

I copied the color wheel order Lexi gave (because she has a better handle on this than I),

and I decided on a travel theme.

I used images and dies from five sets in Papertrey.

 stamps and dies: Papertrey Ink Be Mine,Valentine camera/On the Wagon tree, ocean,luggage and sentiment/City Scene Eiffel Tower and taxi/SAF 2014-1980's Kit glasses/Grunge Me

 Grunge Me gave some background support for those smaller images~

I really enjoyed this challenge, and can justify the large collection of images I've purchased


I visualized other cards for this challenge, so I can see me using this technique again.

Thanks Lexi!
