One card for Saturday....



Happy Saturday...hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.  I have one card to share today and it is for 2 challenges, ColourQ and Fusion plus I finally had the time to watch the first video from day 1 of Clean and Simple One Layer cards.  Although my card is not one layer, I loved this technique so much!  For this week's ColourQ card one of the ingredients is newsprint...some time back Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea gave me some pages from a book she picked up in Italy and I have been saving it for the perfect card and I finally got to pull it out today. 
Yesterday I took the day off and spent it with Darnell and Harriet at the Scrapbook Expo and then lunch. As always, we had a wonderful time...even though I have not known these lovely ladies very long whenever we get together it is like we are old friends and can sit and chat forever...so much fun! Thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy your weekend!




Harriet, Darnell and me

  7. Kim--this is so fabulous. I considered using that book print for my card, and I don't know why I didn't. (Perhaps because I have misplaced the book???) Anyhow, your card is stunning, and your overlapping die technique is just perfect.

    And speaking of lighting up the world...that is exactly what the brilliant colors in your card do! The paper from Italy is so cool and is the perfect pairing for saying Hello!
