Hello Friend ...

This color combination is inspired by a post from A Creative Mint I just added the green.  It's a great site if you need some color inspiration ... love the photographs too.

Last week I slipped and twisted my ankle really bad so I have to pretty much stay in bed and keep it elevated, immobile and iced.  I was really bored so I started crafting.  I made a bunch of cards using PTI's Marigold stamps and colored it with copics and I used different sentiments from various PTI stamps.  This is inspired by one of Maile Belles' creation.  I'm impressed on the crispness and details of the marigold imprints, it makes it stand out.  I just used a light and dark shade of yellow and orange and tried blending ...
I'm still learning how to color with copics =)

  • PAPER: PTI Kraft, Dark Chocolate, White and Rustic White

Green ...

For St. Patrick's Day I was trying to find a simple green shirt for my daughter a couple of weeks ago from Old Navy but most of them were more on the teal side so I just got a plain white one and the biggest size green shirt from the mens department. I cut the green shirt up and used a sizzix flower die to make as much flowers as I can.  I assembled the flowers using this tutorial and added a button at the center and sew it on the shirt randomly.  I had several flowers left so I made some some hair accessories as well.
