Kristina Color Inspiration #47


Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good weekend! How do they always go by so fast and I get so little done! ugh!


I played around with Kristina's Color Inspiration #47 last night. Any kind of orange is always a challenge for me, so it's good for me to try (this is what I tell myself anyway!). I made the card below first, but thought maybe it was too plain, so I made the second card above. Nothing too original, you can't seem to go wrong if you fall back on the bow with a button! lol!


Off to work now...four weeks to get the 3rd and 4th graders ready for the math TAKS, the 4th graders ready for the reading TAKS, and the 3rd graders who failed the first reading TAKS ready for the retake. It's going to be a crazy few weeks!


As always, thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I really like both cards, but I think that the first one is really great. It is clean without being sparse. KWIM?

I love how your embellishments always are "off the page" and look so amazing and you tie bows better than anyone I know!! Good luck with all the TAKS stuff too!
