Black Hat and Blue & White


My son arrived home from Uni for the mid trimester break.  He is only here for a fortnight but it's lovely to have him home even for such a short time.

City Crafters Challenge Blog has a great challenge this week (week 103).  The topic is Hats Off to You.

Supplies:  Card - Bazzill, Stamps - Flourishes, Ink - VersaColor/gold, Kaiser- pearl, brads and ribbon.

The second card for tonight is for two challenges: the sketch challenge at iSpy Sketches ISSC10 and for the colour challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges.
I liked the sketch, fairly straight forward and not too fussy and for the colours I chose blue and white with green.  I must sort out the photography because again the green is looking washed out. 

Supplies:  Card - Bazzill, Design paper - Melissa Frances, Sentiment - Hero Arts, buttons and ribbon

This week has been so busy I didn't have time to tell you about the a paper Expo I went to last Saturday.  It was the first of the Paperific Expos and was held at the Melbourne Showgrounds.  I spent an interesting afternoon checking out all the new techniques and tools.  I allowed $x and left with not even enough for coffee - so a good time was had by all.

Well that's all for now

good night
