With All My Heart, Thank You



Good evening!  My regular posting schedule seems to be off a little bit again thanks mostly to the wonderful weekend the dh and I had :)  It was exactly what we needed, so no worries here :)  I started playing around with the colours from this week’s colourQ inspiration photo…check out that sexy and fabulous shoe! ACK!

After leafing through my paper, I found paper from 3 different paper pads PLUS they all came from 3 different manufacturers! Whew!  Then I remembered that PTI’s Make It Mondays video was about mixing patterns.  So after I made this card, I watched the video.  Hmm, does that still count?!  Teehee…loved hearing Betsy’s voice and seeing her fabulous collection of patterned paper! Wow! So I’ve been able to combine 2 challenges! Eek! Haven’t done that for awhile, but it happened so naturally, I’m rolling with it :)  Had so much fun mixing these fun colours, using some of my new dies and stamps and just being in the studio :)  Thanks for visiting and for all your sweet comments :)  Sweet dreams!

I love that you not only mixed different patterned papers, but you mixed different shapes/diecuts, too! And the yellow ribbon is a great touch :)
