So for this weeks challenge we had to use the colors Turquoise and silver. My inspiration came form the chevron pattern in the turquoise paper from Echo Park. I wanted to repeat the pattern in the silver and use a new stamp I picked up from my LSS that would complement perfectly. I've been distressing my papers lately. Not something I typically do but for some reason I've been using my Tim Holtz distress tool quite a bit. I mirrored the flower pattern in the ribbon, the silver background stamp behind the sentiment and with the turquoise paper flower. I hope you enjoy my crazy combinations of pattern, texture and color!
The beginning of my Christmas cards. I chose to limit each one of my Christmas designs to just 4 each so they would be more one of a kind or 4 of a kind. lol I hope you enjoy my first Christmas card creation.

I tried some different techniques for this layout. I used banner flags for a portion of the title from Mother's Day 2010 cartridge, the background scallop is from Elegant Edges cartridge. The mixer is cut from a SVG.com file.
These are two layouts I did for pictures of my daughter and her good friend.
For this layout I used a cutout from various Cricut cartridges. The background circle and title strip are cut from Lacy Labels, Chip and Dale are from Disney's Mickey and Friends. The initials are cut from Plantin Schoolbook.
For this layout I used various pattern papers and then cut a watermelon with layers from A Child's Year Cricut cartridge
I didn't make the traditional Valentine's Day card this time. I wanted to make more of a masculine card so that a female soldier could send it to her loved one back home. I've just only begun to build my Copic marker collection. Ihave only 25 so I still can't do any shading but I absolutely love the feel and workability of them.
