Well, I'm back! Probably wondering where I've been! So, since about 2 weeks before convention until now, I've been all out with tons of activities!!! And I have sooo much to share!!! But I wanted my "comeback" to be on my favorite blog hop!!! I finally got to meet my "hoppers" in person at convention! I was so excited to put names to real faces (not just blog photos!)! It was my pleasure & honor to meet such talented ladies! And dance up a storm with a couple!! ;)
Some of my gals:
So welcome back from Helen's blog! I've really missed you & am glad to see you again!!!
This weeks color choices are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight,
Tempting Turquoise OR Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant. I chose the second because I feel like I've been using all the pretty bright colors for everything! I figured it'd be fun to get some of the "deeper" colors!!!
So here's what I came up with:
I used From My Heart stamp set. I find this set very useful! It's got great sentiments to just kind of fit in where you don't know what else to say! lol
I made this card to go with a sketch challenge for my upline group this week. We had to use this sketch for our group swap. I thought that since things have been so crazy, why not combine & save a little time.
So here's the sketch:
I like having a sketch to kick off those ideas, but I find them stifling sometimes. This sketch was a fairly simple one. It didn't leave a lot of room for creativity. Sure, I could have embossed more, or added more bling, but I basically needed to "color inside the lines". But these challenges also really make you think! I had to come up with something within those constrictions. While it's a pretty simple card, I think it's effective!
So pop on over now to Liz's blog & tell her I said hello my friend! It's been awhile!!! Glad to see you!!!
I promise lots of great convention stuff over the next couple of weeks! I have all my swaps to share with you, as well as some of the amazing swaps I received! I also have some fun pics of the great fun we had!!!
