Thinking of you doesn't have to be blue!


OK...apparently I'm on some crazy rhyming kick as I write these. Stop me if it makes you nuts - LOL! My blog posts are written quite a ways in advance, so I'm hopeful that this rhyming thing won't last forever!

A lot of times, when you're thinking of someone, you're "blue" or sad because you miss them. Today, I decided you didn't need to be "blue" when thinking of someone, you could think of them with COLOUR!

Check it out:


I was inspired to use these colours when I was putting together a ribbon share for one of my customers. What's a ribbon share? A way to get ALL the ribbons without having to buy ALL of them! You get a couple of yards of each colour to play with. When you decide which ones you REALLY like, you can then order full rolls from me. :)

I shared the colour combo with Elizabeth and she agreed to use it for this week's challenge.

I started off with a base of Blackberry Bliss and added a layer of Designer Series Paper from the Park Lane DSP Pack. That was followed by a piece of Pear Pizzazz and Melon Mambo around which I tied a length of Melon Mambo ⅛" Taffeta Ribbon. The sentiment was stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. One end was tucked under the ribbon.

And the inside:


Can you tell what I did? I found a spot on the paper that had a flower sort of on it's own. I took out my craft knife and cut around it leaving it attached to the DSP. I was then able to tuck in the Whisper White Cardstock. I haven't taken my craft knife out in ages and it was SO much fun!

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the divas have been up to here.
