I'm still having a little trouble getting my creative juices flowing, so today I thought I'd give it a jump start by combining the sketch challenge over at SCS with the color challenge over on the Color Throwdown Blog.
The stamp set I chose to use today is from one of my FAVORITE companies ... Crafty Secrets.
This set is called "sew special" and has several fun pieces to be creative with. If you are not familiar with Crafty Secrets, PLEASE go check them out ... they have some really fun sets as well as some awesome paper packs and booklets. And if you are a vintage lover ... all the better!!!
The colors for the Throwdown today were Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze and Mellow Moss. I also threw in a piece of Basic Grey (periphery) designer paper for Panel #2 of the sketch.
I have found I have difficulty with too much "white space" so instead of using faux stitching around the very vanilla panel, I decided to use this cute "safety pin" stamp (also a part of this sew special set) then colored it in with a gold metallic pen by Creative Memories to make it look like the real thing.
Thanks for stopping by! I know a lot of you have been kind enough to mention my DH in your comments and I really appreciate all you kind words & prayers. So I've decided to leave a little update at the end of my daily post to let you know how we're handling this new chemo regiment. Today is a better day than yesterday, although he is still experiencing a lot of exhaustion so has been spending most of the day in bed. At least the nausea has eased up and that is a blessing within itself!!! While he's resting, I think I'll go back to my craftroom where I can be "quiet" and hopefully creative!
