Orange??



What is it that scares people? I love orange, such a bright and happy colour but if I had a pound for all those that said "I dont do orange" during a class or demo then I would be rich. Funny isnt it? What makes us like things, dislike others.


I coloured this image (above) in the other night and have at last made time to make a card. It is orange and lime which are two of my fav colours, I like bright happy colours, cant fail to make to make me smile. I have used my watercolour crayons from Stampin' Up! my new favourite colouring medium, well those and the distress ink pads, I used those yesterday and ended up buying 10!! LOL Not quiet the idea to be selling to myself!
I made the flower type things with three different Stampin' Up! cardstock colours and the Stampin' Up! Scallop circle punch. I added Zoomz to the centre, thought it turned out cute.
I love how the light caught the glitter glue when I took the photo tonight.
News on the shed/base progress. Darren has done fantastically well, he has mixed about 1 1/2 tonnes of ballast and cement (by hand) and made great headway with it. I went to my Mum and asked her if I could take some of Dad's ashes to sprinkle in my base... Hmm does that make me weird, to want to do that? I was going to have some anyway and I wanted it to be somewhere undisturbed in the garden and not somewhere we would dig up in 6 months time. So I can truely sit in my Palace and think of him being near. I told him I wanted him to inspire me to make fantastic cards!
I had better go, Harvey has the nesquick powder and is making a mess!! Kids eh?

Lovely card. Can't say I've thought of using orange or lime, but who knows.
I think it's a lovely idea to scatter some of your dads ashes in the base. As you say, he'll always be there with you in your special place, ready to inspire you when you're having a bad day.

Beautiful card, great colours - would never think to use them (though I did do a lime green penny black card once). Fab blog too - will definitely be checking in regularly, shame your demo's are so far away from me
