.... Good morning all!! It's hard to believe, but we've been in the States for a month now. Time is going so quickly!! In that time we've had summer temperatures, gone back to more "normal" temperatures and even seen a few snowflakes!! I'd been told that in Michigan you can experience all seasons in a day - I guess it's absolutely true!!!
It's time for our new CR84FN colour challenge - such soft, pretty colours, chosen by my team mate, Heather. Our wonderful inspiration photos are courtesy of Magnolia Rouge. Love that wigwam and those macaroons look good too!!
I have to admit that when I first saw these colours I was stuck! I spent ages just browsing through my stamp catalogue. Finally, and I don't know why it took so long, I realised that the perfect stamps for these colours were the pretty Victorian Frippery lace stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I inked up the long border stamp in pink and tan and made a lace background! Then I made a focal image using circular Spellbinder dies and the coordinating lace circle stamp. I finished off with a simple Hi!!
