Good Friday Morning!

Good Friday Morning!
I thought I was going to be gone on day field trip with Chloe's class but as of right now I'm not ;) Some other parent's finally stepped up after the teacher sent a note home saying it would be cancelled without more help. Although I do enjoy helping out when I can I'm finding myself getting burned out from it all. The excitement isn't there like it used to :(
Anyway, you came by today to see some cards right?!
The All That Scraps DT are doing a Review/Preview of AmyR's Wedding and Sentiment sets today. I chose to use a sentiment on my card. I REALLY like how this came out!! The cardbase and sentiment circle are Shimmery White and then I paired it up with some PTI Lemon Tart and Chocolate papers.
The Ways To Use It Challenge was to find a colour combo you liked. I browsed the suggestion site here. Then chose one called Living Room...well when I went back to find the exact one, I couldn't...lol But the colours were along these lines:
Ruby Red, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose and Going Gray.
I decided to use the Happy Heart Day set and paper pieced the elephant with some Sweet Always DP. Stardust stickles were added to the hearts.
Thanks for stopping by today!

I would never have thought to pair the Lemon Tart with the Dark Chocolate! Love seeing different color combos to try! Your little elephant card is super cute too!

I know what you mean about volunteering for school. I always volunteer to drive for the field trips. Well, last month I thought I'd sit ONE out....only ONE mom volunteered to drive so I ended up volunteering again after all. It's always the same people volunteering.

Anyhow...sorry that got so long-winded. I love both cards but the lemon/chocolate combo is AWESOME! I especially like that you used the butterfly print and the punched butterfly. Super cute!

Your brown and yellow card is so freakin' awesome Dawn. Every single thing on it is perfect, right down to those tiny pearls. And you know I love the polka dotted ellie too.

Marisa said...

Absolutely LOVE the butterfly card!! The elephant one is a totally cute card too - saw it on SCS yesterday.

Hear you on the volunteering at school. It's the old 80/20 rule (20% of the people do 80% of the work) not matter where you are!! It does get irritating at times, that's for sure.

I must be one of those slacker parents ... I *never* help out *gasp*. Well, one redeeming thing would be the fact that I have three kids still under school age! LOL (its still not my thing, though)

Fab cards! Love the chocolate paper. I'll have to get some when Paul's in the US!!

Lisa Nagata said...

Love the butterfly one! You inspired me (once again) to make one of my own with some paper that was just begging to be used. It's on my blog if you want to see it. Thanks for the inspiration!
