Lots of Hellos


It's been sprinkling all day here and I swear the grass has grown two inches since yesterday!  We still need a few good heavy downpours to fill up the water tank but at least the grass isn't quite so crunchy now. After going to the pub for lunch Luis declared it a sofa and TV kind of afternoon so I headed off to the Craft Cave and left him to enjoy his loafing.  :)  I did a lot of puttering and tidying so only ended up making this one card.  I used the colours from ColourQ and several punches and dies so I could play along with CAS-ual Fridays.  I'm also going to join in with Simon Says Stamp's Clean and Simple challenge.  Have a lovely evening!
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Tempting Turquoise, Basic Grey, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Phone from Perpetual Bliss) Paper Smooches, "Hello from May '12 KOM - Love In An Instant) Unity

I love how you added the polka dots. Fabulous design Jen! I'm itching to use this color combo...hoping to make it to the craft room before the challenge ends tomorrow!!

Jean said...

This card is definitely a winner! I tend to go floral whenever there is a green in a color combo. This is a great take on the color challenge!

Love this layout, and the hellos are awesome! And the bubbles. Such a cool retro-mod look :) I wish I could find you a way to get our rain...all it seems to grow for us is mosquitoes. I'm guessing we have a week before having to put on repellent every time we go out.

Christina said...

The dotty dots are perfect, LOVE how you have used the colours Jen!

Jenny said...

I really like the way you've used the grey as a base colour, the brights really stand out against it.
Glad your finally getting some wet weather,crunchy grass is not a good look!!
