Hi there....& a huge thanks for hanging in there after my lack of posts.
Today, I have a couple of cards I to show you using a new favourite colour combo - elegant eggplant & melon mambo.
I was introduced to these great colours back in August when I saw this fab card by the always amazing Christine Blain. I'd never thought of using the Extreme Elements set for girls cards, but I loved how Christine used it & showed the pic to Cara to see what she thought. Her verdict - "That's so awesome Mum - could you make that?" So,of course I really HAD to get it! I then pretty much immediately cased it to make a pocket card for Cara's friend's 11th birthday. This was the result.
And here's the inside.
It was such a fun card to make & I think I might be getting over my aversion to tearing too. Thanks again Christine for this great idea.
Fast-forwarding to September, I needed a card for another friend's 10th birthday. The birthday girl was having an ice skating party, so I thought the ice skate stamp from the new 'Jolly Bingo Bits' Christmas set would be perfect. I used my eggplant & melon combo again - this time with some regal rose.
I carried the theme to the inside too, which also needed to hold a gift card. By the way, the inside & front greetings are from the new hostess set - Happiest Birthday Wishes, which I'm sure is going to get a work-out in the coming year.
If you haven't tried these colours, give them a whirl. I'm sure you'll love them too. Leave a comment if you have any questions or just want to say you haven't forgotten me. Back sooner than later I hope.
Inky wishes, Di
