Wild About Flags for FTL245 and CTD246

Monday, June 17, 2013

Is it my imagination or are there flags and banners appearing everywhere on projects around blogland lately? I don't think I'm imagining it and I since they are so popular I'm so thankful that I broke down and bought a couple of flag dies because I was getting tired of hand cutting them all the time!

For this flaggy card I used the sketch at Clean&Simple (where I have not played in a dog's age) and combined it with the colors at Color Throwdown.

I actually made this card on Saturday with the intention of posting it Sunday morning, but after a short trip into work for a little computer upgrade and a few errands run on the way home, the weeds in the garden were calling my name and I couldn't ignore them for fear of disturbing the neighbors.  So alas the post had to wait.

I'm happy to say that many of the weeds are gone (though many remain) so I will be very busy this week on my vacation getting down and dirty outside.  It's supposed to rain AGAIN today and Tuesday, so I think I'll head on over to IKEA for a little browse.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm ignoring my weeds this morning to have a peek around blogland. Your card is delightful. Yep, lots of banners and flags in designs these days, and it's a trend I like. Love how you've used the color palette. The little vines are perfect around the bloom. Wonderful card! Bev
