A spot for me to ramble about my smooshie faced dogs, paper crafting, knitting and a little cooking...

Crafting with Mom

I have always wanted to do one of Kristina's color challenges, and today was the day! Mom and I both made cards, it was interesting to see how differently they turned out using the same colors, being made at the same time.




Here is my card. We both thought to make small cards without mentioning it to each other. These are 3X3.







And here is Mom's card. It is hard to tell, but she used lots of glitter on the butterfly, it is really sparkly in person.








The photos only turned out ok, the sun had gone behind the clouds so the colors are not quite right. Mom doesn't have the new in colors, and I thought the turquoise looked too bright, so we used Old Olive and Taken with Teal. Now we must make dinner which is quite late! Enjoy =)

About Me

I live with my wonderful husband of 12 years Chris, Fitz the almost 1 year old pug, and the newest member of our family Bennett the 8 week old Shih-tzu. We have a second home on a small lake where I grew up, we watch altogether too much TV, and spend WAY too much time online. I have just started knitting, have been papercrafting for many years, and enjoy cooking.
