Create with Connie & Mary #216
But wait, back to reality, right now my three kids are all taking a nap, but the minute I try to do something extra, it will send a signal to one of them to wake up. Then it's just like a snowball - the first one can't keep quiet enough to let the others sleep and, within 30 minutes, they are all up wanting to "craft" with Mommy!
If ever there was anything to be thankful for today, it's these minutes (40 so far, and counting) of precious silence. Nothing but the sound of my keyboard clicking away....
Today I found a colour challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary, and the colours in the challenge today are Rich Razzelberry, Night of Navy and Lucky Limeade. What a delicious combination!
I paired up the colour challenge with the Lacy & Lovely stamp set, an Antique Brad and a message from Tiny Tags. I did use some Dazzling Details in the outer ring of the Night of Navy Lacy stamp, it bled a little, but I think it's OK, it's just a lighter shade. It also adds some texture and some sparkle.
The inside echoes the front, a flag / pennant in the same colours as the front, and then some randomly stamped Lacy & Lovely images.
