This past weekend was City Wide Rummage Sale in Fort Atkinson. Megan is looking for a coffee table for her new apartment so we thought we would go and try to find one. First of all, should have know the weather would be rainy. It usually is for City Wide. Second, we don't go very often and of course, this time, there was very few rummage sales. We were shocked. On our block corner, there can be up to. 15 sale signs alone. This time, maybe 4. We were so disappointed. At least it's not a necessary item, just a want. We will keep looking.
So, once a month, my up-line challenges us to use certain colors in a card, any way we want. It's a challenge we don't have to participate in, but it's kind of fun. Last month was:
Now, be honest. Would you normally put these three color together? I'm not sure I would have on my own. Here's what I made.
Not too bad. I'm kind of liking the colors together.
I used the Honeybee Home Stamp Set and the coordinating dies. The flowers are stamped in Memento Black and colored using the Stampin' Blends, the light shades. Smooth coloring with the blends, and no ugly lines.
Because of the bees, I just had to use the Hive embossing folder. It goes with the bee theme. Plus, I like it.
