Down Under Colour Challenge

When I first saw this particular pattern from the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper collection, I thought, “Hmmmmm.  What in the world could I do with that?”  Well it didn’t take long to figure it out when I surfed across the pond & found a blog by Carolyn King from Perth, Australia.  Carolyn designed this card as part of a “Colour” challenge to use Soft Suede, River Rock and Pretty in Pink.   When you get a moment, take a look at her Blog and see all of her wonderful designs.  I am so inspired—and ready to copy every one of them.

This card was the #2 favorite at my last stamp camp.Colour Challenge

June Cleaver

The dress on this adorable card reminds me of a dress June Cleaver might have worn while vacuuming the den. 

If you don’t know who June Cleaver is, just enjoy the card & don’t remind me of my age.
