Laura and Henri.....

 Finally, a post! Life has just got into the way of making cards! I love sneaking away into my craft room and playing with the my goodies but with the nice weather I feel a little guilty! But, not today. Today it stormed all day, so what better way to make the storm clouds disappear......create!
 I fell in love with Laura and Henri....Sarah Kay has entered back into my life of crafting! I had a lot of these adorable images at one time and have not used them. But, a little visit at One Crazy Stamper and somehow these two made it home with me!
Now, I do have to admit, that I had a day were nothing was working. I would make a card and trash it! Nothing and I mean nothing was coming together. I wanted a card for my hubby as this weekend we are celebrating our anniversary. I didn't want anything to pretty, but low and behold some wild orchid flowers did make it onto the card. I did put a sentiment inside too. I coloured with copics this time as the distress inks that I was playing with at first were not co-operating for me. Ugh! I love distress inks...but it wasn't meant to be today!

I want to thank you all that leave such nice comments. I certainly do. I also want to thank those that attend my classes (some on a regular basis) at One Crazy Stamper. I love to meet with you all and share a passion for card making....thank-you to all of you for making it so fun!

I would love to enter my card creation into a few challenges:
1. As you Like it.......Favorite 2 colour combos- Blue/Brown
2. Charisma Cardz....No Digis Allowed
3. Simply Create Too.....Anything Goes

Have a wonderful week!

  2. Gorgeous card, Christine. Sweet Sarah Kay image as usual coloured in your usual fabulous way. Happy Anniversary by the way. This image is perfect for the occasion. Love the colour scheme and your gorgeous DP's.
    Crazy weather we're having. Hope the storm didn't hit you too hard. Yesterday's snowfall in Newfoundland was just too weird.

  7. Hey there Christine! Your card for your hubby is way toooooo pretty! I love it! I'm sure he will love it too. Congratulations on your anniversary! Aren't those Sarah Kay images ADORABLE? You did a fantastic job coloring it with your copics. I bet the DI ones were great too.
    I am just like you, if the weather is pretty, I feel guilty stamping. I feel like I should be outside cleaning something or taking my dog for a walk haha! I am such an outdoor person!
    Have a great day Christine!
    Hugs, Dena
