Wow, it's late! What a busy day today. I did manage to get in a quick card for the Color Challenge at SCS. It's called Crushing Bashful Blues with Pizzazz. In other words, Concord Crush, Bashful Blue, & Pear Pizzazz. Dessert this week is use of the white gel pen.
I love blue and purple together! My mother had a brooch that had purple and blue stones on it. I have that brooch now and it's one of my favorites although, I don't wear it much now that I'm retired.
I inked the lavender stamp, from Herb Expressions, with markers and stamped on a scrap of Whisper White. Then I stamped a couple more times without reinking. The little butterfly is from the So Happy for You Sale-a-bration set. I inked it with a Bashful Blue marker and used the fine tip of the Concord Crush to edge it. It's really hard to see, but I dotted the butterfly with the Signo white gel pen. Just a taste of dessert! Both the design piece and sentiment piece are popped up on dimensionals.
Since Lavender stands for devotion (even though I left that part off when I inked this), I thought it would make a great anniversary card.

The Creative Arts group met with me today and we had a new stamper, Lori. She had never made a card before. I thought I would share what she did.
She wanted to make a Birthday card for her Sister-in-law. I think she did a great job, don't you? (Can you tell we were playing with the Big Shot today?) The other ladies made some lovely cards too. I just didn't get pictures of everything. It's a lovely group and I so enjoy spending time with them. They always manage to inspire me!
Sorry this has gone on so long. Thanks for the visit. Enjoy!
