Ouch...

So, after a LONG time, I went back to Curve's yesterday afternoon. Ouch. And to show what a low level of intelligence I possess, I am probably going back this morning. Groan....moan......
**********
Michelle, this one's for you!
**********
This week is "Buttons" at A Little Whimsy, and yesterday was "Tuesday Triplets" day at 365 Cards. Whatever we did, was to be done in triplicate, except the sentiment. So, here are three panels of DCWV DP, topped off with PaperTrey Ink's cute little hot air balloons (BUTTONS!!!) (THREE!!!). Funny how things work out. I made this one in a hurry, and thought it would be one of my least faves ever, and it turned out pretty darned cute, I think! I kind of like it!


Recipe: DCWV Winter Mat Stack (last year's), Versafine Black Ink, Stampin' Up Bashful Blue Ink, PaperTrey Ink "Everyday Button Bits", buttons from my stash.



Next is a fall card that I made for the Stampin' Sister's in Christ Challenge (to use fall colors), and for the My Time to Craft Challenge (Autumn), and last but not least, for the 365 Cards challenge for Monday, which was to make a card that was inspired by the following colors.

It's hard to tell, but all of the colors are here! If not in the DP or CS, then I have colored them in...

Recipe: TAC "I'm nuts about you", Provo DP, Ribbon from Hobby Lobby, DCWV CS, Kooh-I-Noor Colored Pencils, Versafine Brown Ink.

Yesterday, as I posted the candy on my sidebar, I was reminded just how short life can be, how everything can change in a split second, and that I don't tell you all enough just how thankful I am to have met so many wonderful friends through this love of paper that we share. Thanks to all of you for your thoughtful and caring comments, and for sharing your talents with me!

Have a great day!

Patti J.
