Current Inspire Me Fridays link-up HERE!

February 27, 2009


huff, huff, huff.....that's me running to catch up yet again! I was away from my poor computer all day yesterday! But had a lovely date day with my DH while the kids had a chance to hangout with my Mom! We went to Benihana for lunch then shopping for a few hours. It was great!
This card was inspired by Courtney over at Created by Courtney. She challenged us to use brown, vanilla & turquoise, one of my fav combos. I didn't have brown brads to match, so I simply punched three dots out using my crop a dile, fixed them in place and applied a drop of crystal effects....voila, a shiny "brad". I've been stamping today, trying to get some of the challenges in before the new ones are issued....what a workout!

eta: I forgot to tell you where the sketch came from....a challenge issued by Stamps & Smiles...checkout the blinkie on my sidebar for all the details! Soo Sorry!

What a great idea for the brads! That is something that drives me crazy, not having the right color! I am so taking that idea and running!! Love this beautiful card with the elegant colors and swirls! Sounds like you had a great time with you hubby!
