A Cheerful Critter for #GDP025

Global Design Project #025 Colour Challenge

“May we LIVE all the days of our life.”

~Jonathan Swift

The Global Design Project has a challenging color challenge for us this week over at http://global-design-project.com

#GDP025 Take Two 004

The Daffodil Delight Cardstock is embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.  I turned it sideways so it would resemble chicken wire! : )  The chick is stamped from the Cheerful Critters stamp set.  This is a color combination that I would never have considered without working with a challenge.  I love how challenges broaden our horizons!  Thanks, Global Design Project!

This is the first card I made, after my husband suggested that I add a stripe of yellow!

#GDP025 and Papa's Birthday 183

The elephant is from the Patterned Occasions stamp set and the inside sentiment is from the Oh My Goodies stamp set.

Stamping Peace,





Love that lemon!

Lemon Card 001

Good Morning!  I’ve been having a time of it with our internet connection, but it has returned.  This is another card that we made at this weeks stamping classes. (But not one that we are making at this afternoons Childrens Class.)  I just love that lemon stamp from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  The lemon and two of the leaves are raised up on dimensionals, as well as the whole smaller green panel.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Regals DSP Stack and coordinating colors are Crushed Curry and Old Olive.  We didn’t have enough Glue Dots for everyone, so I made some with the hole punch and some Crystal Effects!

On an entirely different note, Jonathan (my oldest son who owns Summersweet Landscaping), his Gardenista, Maria, and I went to the Boston Garden Show yesterday!  It was so nice to have a peek at spring after the 119″ of snow we have had this winter.  (And to have lunch with my Goddaughter, Erika, who is always a little burst of spring!).   But, back in Maine and back to more snow tonight and tomorrow!  : )

At our Children’s Class this afternoon we will be making the Easter Card below, we’ll be learning how to make Irish Soda Bread for St. Patricks Day, and we’ll be quilting our doll quilts!  Hope you have a creative week-end, and if you create a St. Patricks Day card this week-end, send it to me at theoblatelife@ymail.com and I’ll post some of them on our blog on St. Patrick’s Day!  : )
