Wishes

Ready for another challenge at Some Odd Girl?  This month is a color challenge with a nice summer combination that would be perfect for beach and water themes!  However, I wanted to make something a little different and went with Wishes, the fairy.


I'd have to admit that this color scheme had me stumped for a while and I kept veering off into purples, greens and browns.  But I finally found some yellows and blues that worked well together and stuck with it.  I think the pink is suppose to be more of a sandy orange color so I think the colors are off on my monitor a little in my craft room.  (Note to self to get that fixed.)  Either way, the blue and yellow is what stood out the most for me.


On a side note I just have to ask - why is it that my work space is soo appealing to my youngsters?!  The other day I went in and found my self-sticking pearls and gems all over the chair and today I found my next project "neatly" folded into origami next to the toy bin!  Really?  Oh, yes, really.  LOL


The main stamp I used is Wishes from Some Odd Girl with the coordinating sentiment but I also used the oval note stamp from Sweet Thinkin' Mae.  Thanks for dropping by and make sure you don't miss out on the fabulous projects from the design team at the SOG Blog - they're stunning!

  8. Beautiful card!! Love this!! and yes, the little ones are drawn to our stuff but I laid the law down early with mine..now they come in but they don't touch...now if we could get their friends to do that. I had a heart attack a few years ago when I caught one of their friends grabbing my copics and taking off the lids having a grand ol' time! Eek!!
