Darned! Just as I had laid out all my stuff for a glorious Saturday of scrapping, the phone rang. As nice as it is to have friends visit, I would kind of like them to give just a weee bit of notice, at least if they are counting on board and lodging. Down with all the stuff in my IKEA storage boxes and hide them in the bed room. Bye by said Mojo, see ya next Friday!
Well here is last Friday's release of the CCG palette # 190, a rather challenging combo of yellows and green.
Happy Mother's Day weekend!! This week's Designer Challenge: Focus on Topic - Mom! Mother's Day is this Sunday, so we want to celebrate our Mom's and your Mom, and just being MOM! Create a project about the best gift you have ever received or given to your Mom or as a Mom. If you are a card maker, follow our topic this week and create a Mother's Day card!
I just very quickly made a card this evening, not happy with the last-minute work but here it is anyway. It is for my mother who left us far too early.
Green dotted Bazzill cardstock stitched onto white dito. Patterned paper is Swedish designer Pysselgumman at Pion Design, really sweet and shabby Lilly of the Valley pattern. I know Vicky Alberto is a huge fan of the papers, she is also a DT over at Pion. How awesome is that, a Canadian gal on a Swedish DT!
A wide green silk ribbon under the lace and then I grouped white lilies, tiny yellow and white roses and larger yellow&white roses onto the lace. Too bad once again that the Glimmer Glam in Golden Goddess that I just brushed onto the blooms doesn't show in its glittery gloriousness. Dipped my finger into Gesso and just lightly touched up the roses. The cardboard chippies were originally white and glitter fabulously IRL. I misted them in TA Glimmermist Marigold. Doesn't show too well either. Sigh!
Thank you ever so much for all the fantastic comments on my win of the Imaginarium Chippies!! I am over the moon with happiness!
Todeloo! xx Eila
