CR84FN24


Hi bloggies! I'm back today for one of my favorite color challenges. I always look forward to Sundays because of it. And today is no different. Have you seen the color combination?! Oh my goodness it's gorgeous!!! I have this feeling I'll be using this combination a lot from now on. I started on my card early in the morning and had to cut it short to go to this Palm Sunday mass. But as soon as we got back, I added the finishing touches and took my pictures. Here's CR84FN24.


What do you think? I LOVE this card! I had a wonderful day yesterday, because my mail man left me some goodies in the mail box! I had been waiting for my order from WPlus9, and they arrived just in time! I used these gorgeous tulips from A Special Lady, and the sentiment from Brothers & Sisters. I also finally got Mehndi Medallions, my friend Christina, uses them perfectly ALL the time. And I've been telling myself that I would get them. Well, Christina, I got them!!! Yay! I used them so many times yesterday for some cards that I was submitting to a magazine call. I'm really glad I got them. I still have a few more on my list that I wasn't able to get, but only because I was trying to spread out my purchases between 3 of my favorite stamp companies. Hopefully, by next month I'll be able to get all of them. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this one.... 


I usually order my craft supplies once a month. And I always have a budget that I try to keep and so far I've only done that a few times. I'm REALLY trying to stay within it and I was really glad that I was able to this month. I usually order from 3 places...and I usually concentrate on stamps. Which is why you'll notice that I use the same trims, ribbons, flowers, etc. I buy those in bulk so I don't have to get them constantly. I really wish I could splurge on embellishments, but for some reason stamps always come first on my list. Well, thanks for stopping by!
