CQC142, FTTC174 From the Desk of.....

Hello friends!

Sorry I have been so quiet...we went on vacation and we are finally back home! I'll have a fun quiz & some photos for you in the next few days. I will giveaway some Flourishes goodies.....so come back and play along!!!

It's time for a new challenge ~ FTTC174. Cindy is our hostess and she has challenged us to create something *FROM THE DESK* .....make note cards, monogrammed cards or whatever you can find on your desk!!!

Here is my take on it......








I dug out the beautiful From the Desk Of ....Set and created this *Note Card* Gift Set. The images were inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped onto the Flourishes Classic White CS. Next I colored them with these Copic Markers ~ B00, B000, B95, Y19, R32, N1, YG11 and G21.




Please make sure to check out the FTTC teams creations as well ~ Cindy, Maki, Heather, Mona, Beate, Amanda and our June Guest Designer Alice Wertz.

The colors inspiration came from this weeks Color Q #142......


Thank you so much for stopping by...I'll see you soon!

                                                              Hugs, ~Silke~
