CR84FN52 - Hi ....

.... 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!!


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Victorian Frippery
Inks: Memento - Angel Pink, Desert Sand
Spellbinders:  Classic Scalloped Circles Sm (S4-125) #1, Classic Scalloped Circles Lg (S4-124) # 4, Plain Circles Lg (S4-114) #5
Accessories:  SU - Pink Pirouette card; Card from stash

The rest of the team have some wonderful inspiration cards to share with you, so please don't forget to visit them and leave some love:


I hope you all have a lovely Sunday - we're off to Detroit Zoo today!  Looking forward to seeing your creations.  Bye for now.
