Curtain Call Act 62 Celebrate

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

Did you all have a wonderful Christmas??? We sure did...I was a very good girl for Santa too...LOL!!! We always exchange gifts Christmas evening....fun, fun, fun!!! I can't believe how much we are anticipating this special day and than it's gone in flash as well :( !!! Saturday we launched around all day and eat some yummy leftovers...kinda the best part the day after.

I also had a chance to make a card for today's Curtain Call Act 62...yeah!!! Stacey has challenged us to this beautiful color combo and I hope you get a chance to play along?!?


I was trying to clean up my super messy stamp area the other day and I came across this awesome SU Set called *Friends 24-7*. I thought it was perfect for today's color combo plus it hasn't seen much ink lately!



The DP is from the SU Ski Slope Collection and I added some scored Early Espresso CS. The edges on the DP were ink distressed. The card was embellished with some Baja Breeze Ribbon, a Brown Button as well as a Baja Breeze Corduroy Button, some Gold Cord and some Gold Pearls.

Liebe Silke,

Deine letzten Werke sind wie immer umwerfend schön, dieses Vogelkärtchen gefällt mir besonders gut, die Farben, die Aufteilung, die Gestaltung ein Traum und dann noch dieses zauberhafte Vogelmotiv *schwärm*

Herzliche Grüße
