Thanks a Bunch

Sunday, July 13, 2014

Sometimes I find it hard to participate in color challenges when there are just two colors, but I liked the combo at Colour Me too much to not give it a try.  I never in a million years would have thought to put Soft Sky with Elegant Eggplant but once I saw the cards from the design team I realized how pretty the colors looked together.  I added in the latest Sketch Saturday and went to work.

I'm actually re-thinking my decision to use vellum for one of the flags.  Originally I was going stamp a sentiment on it but then changed my mind and used one of these label sentiments because I love that stamp set so much and want to use it all the time!  The placement of it deviates from the sketch but I think you can still see the sketch in there.

It's too nice a day to spend cooped up in the house so I'm headed outside to try and dig up a stubborn patch of grass that has taken root in my garden.  I've sprayed it with weed killer thinking that it would help to pull it out but the roots on this grass are shooting all over the place and I'm having a tough time liberating it from the soil.  But I will prevail.  No stupid grass will get the best of me!  Thanks for stopping by!
