...phwwh!


Where do all you folks get the time? I am constantly in awe of all the many million things everyone seems to be turning out. I feel sooo ssl...l...l...o...o...o..w...w...w... Hadn't a minute to myself all over the weekend, this is all I got squeezed out.

Phluph.

Even missed the PapertreyInk blog hop for which I purposely purchased one of Laurens' templates! AAAArrrrggghhh! (Fab template by the way - must do something with it soon).

Used the new Guidelines 2 set from PapertreyInk together with the mini flower from the Anniversary set, Everyday Classics- sentiment also from this set.

Lavender Moon cardstock (PTI) with versamark ink, Plum pudding ink and versafine Crimson on a blackened stamp to give the motley-purply-reddy tones.

Dyed a white flower with the plum pudding ink pad to match - interestingly it went very dark - perfect match for the dark reddy/purple ink.

Hope it tickles.

  4. I adore these colors!! Love the combination of the anniversary flower with GL II!! You know, I was thinking (probably because I realize that I don't have anything in the works for Mom yet...yikes!) that this would also work as a Mother's Day card! :>

    I also purchased Lauren's From the Desk of in order to make something fun for the blog hop, but time ran out and I wasn't able to. So, I'll commiserate with you! :>
