SC223 Footprints....,CC213, FTTC10 Sign of Spring

Hello everyone!!!

It's *full moon* and I can't sleep....does that happen to anyone else out there???

Well - this gave me plenty of time to get caught up on blogging - LOL - until I spotted the SC223!!! I figured I play along....

When I saw the Sketch I immediately thought of my fabulous ODBD Set *Footprints in the Sand*.

My dilemma was I could think of colors...LOL - so I went with the monochromatic look using Kiwi Kiss. Problem solved - LOL!!!

The Punch is from Martha Stewart *Arch Lattice*. I added some Candle Light Shimmerz to the image.... Of course I had to add one of my fabulous little Silver Pearls plus the matching Kiwi Kiss Ribbon!!!

*****************************************************

Here is my card I made for the CC213 using - Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Close to Cocoa!!! I don't know about you , but I really like this Combo!!!

I know I should have posted this card yesterday along with my other Flourishes card, but I ran out of time....my girls wanted to go to the movies...I had to run some errands...etc. BTW - we went to see *Monsters vs Aliens* - it was toooo cute - love that it was in 3D!!! Go see it if you get a chance!!!

Anyway - I combined the CC213 with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC10) - using your *favorite* Set. As I told you yesterday, I had a really hard time deciding which one of my awesome Flourishes Set's I should use.....I couldn't help myself but to show you my second choice- LOL!!! It's the *Sign of Spring* Set!!! I think I'm tickled by those cute little Chickie's and the awesome daffodil flower!!!

Here is what I've done - I inked the sentiment and image in Memento Black. I colored the basket with the following Copic & Prisma Marker - B34, PM132 and PM201. I popped the Chickie's up with Stampin Dimensionals. Next I embossed the So Saffron CS with the Leafy Branch CB folder and layered it onto the Bashful Blue CS. The Satin Ribbon is from Michael's.

Hope you will play along with us in the FTTC10??? Can't wait to see your favorite Stamp Set!!!

Yes, it happens to me and I think, everyone has a phase of insommnia at some point. The trick is, not to stress about it. It will sort itself out eventually.
As for the cards...well, you know you can do no wrong in my eyes! They are amazing as always.

I don't have any problem with full moon that I know of but I usually go to bed around 10 pm and last night it was past midnight. Who knows?

Anyway, I visited to thank you for your visit to my blog and tell you that I really like the monochromatic look of your card. It is lovely!

TFS!

Such beautiful work. I love the texture (and of course your amazing use of ribbon). Hugs, Mary

P.S. Your posts stopped delivering to me by email via feedblitz. I checked on my end and it looks fine. Wondered if you could see if there's an issue on yours? I would hate to miss anything.

Julie said...

O-M-G Silke! Love that monochromatic one and the gorgeous coloring on the other!! Both are just stunning!

Ohhhh....love the monochromatic card Silke!! Gorgeousness!!!

My body knew it was full moon before I did. I had trouble falling asleep the other night. I even got up and looked out the window to see if was a full moon or not. I didn't find out until the next night that it's a full moon week. So, that means 2 days before and 2 days after. You can feel the effects. At least I know why I have trouble sleeping when it's a full moon.


Now that I know it affects You like it does me. You and I can stay up late and howl at the moon together. LOL

Antje said...

I 100% agree with you, I always think it happens to me, because we live so close to the sea, and if the moon effects all that water, it sure must effect me, human beeings are a lot of water as well!!
Your cards are so wonderful, especially those with the chicks in 3D, it makes them so real!!
