Hello Dear Friend...

Just a quick post to share some of my favourite things. While I was at CHA I attended a couple of classes and had some leftover supplies. I decided my Prima stuff needed some lovin'--patterned paper, ribbon, primas...

Today's card was first inspired by my supplies but also my mum who told me I am using too much blue, white and brown *lol* I am guilty and I know it--those are my favs!!!! She told me I had to go bold. Well ORANGE and PINK are just about as bold as colours can get. Are you happy mum?

Once I got started on my card I knew I reached for some awesome CHF stamps created by my dear friend Mona Lisa. Did you know she designs lots of the backgrounders? And how about those fab Classical Essential Expressions and Cardmaker's Shapes? She is a creative genius I tell you.
