THREE is such a magic number: Like Charlie’s Angels or the Three Musketeers. How about spaghetti, meatballs and garlic bread? Faith, Hope & Charity? Harry, Ron & Hermoine or (for you “Wicked” fans like me:) Glinda, Elphaba and Fyero…”witch” brings us to the point today, this classic card sketch (Fall-to Layout #113 from Clean & Simple Stamping):
I must be in sync with the gals over at Clean & Simple Stamping because this is the project I took to the cabin in Pine Valley to work on over the weekend:
These are my birthday cards for the demonstrators in my SU! family this year (sorry, ladies, if this spoils the surprise!!) and they just happened to follow the C&S Fall-to-Layout #111:
I am making these cards in lots of different colors, like the one below that showcases some of the 2010 In-Colors (Peach Parfait and Concord Crush). I wasn’t sure they would look good together, but this just goes to show you that the hues in each color family prepared by SU! really *are* compatible with each other!!
Sometimes you just need to ignore the housework and do something fun. Which is where I found myself this morning…needing a little creative time. So here is my “Tote-ally Tess”/Poppy Parade version of the Clean & Simple Fall-to Layout #107:
Now that the kids are back in school, I had time to stamp for fun again! It was delightful and I am reminded how much I enjoy being creative.
