with love...

Played with the Color Throwdown colors using the sketch at SCS and added some chevrons for the Chevron challenge at the Moxie Fab World.


Happy Mail at my house... the jar and flowers are from Clear and Simple Stamps. Well Preserved Jars medium {there are three sets small, medium, and large) and Well Preserved Jars Extras. The jar was die cut with the corresponding medium jar die. Waltzingmouse stamps Off Beat Backgrounds provided the chevrons on the background raspberry ripple panel. Normally when I think of chevrons what comes to mind is something more graphic but, you can see how they can be incorporated into a more "traditional" card. Stamped an image from Waltzingmouse stamps Text It onto the primrose petal layers. Added some seam binding. Love the little sentiment on the jar.

The colors...

Enjoying my WE... even took Monday off... thought I was going to need to work but, it was sooo quiet on Good Friday and I accomplished bunches at work!! Other good news for me... made an offer for my open position {I've been working two jobs} and the job was accepted so... will have some help....starts April 21 and will need to train but, ohhhh there is light at the end of the tunnel!!

Hope your Easter WE is full of love and laughter... we're on the quiet side here... sometimes that's a good thing, ya' know!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
