Timeless Tuesday...get inspired


Well for Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes, Silke is asking us to get inspired by her picture from Crate & Barrell. The colors are bright and cheerful...magenta/fushia which makes me think of a raincoat I once owned. Yes, it was the exact color of my card believe it or not but I suggest you believe it. I was at the University of Detroit at the time and walked into the cafeteria one rainy evening wearing my snazzy coat and the cutest guy I ever saw ( well maybe not the very cutest, but to me he was) gave me a huge smile and said..."Nice coat". Well, that was the beginning of a very beautiful and meaningful realationship with the darling who ended up being my Mr. Only...my husband. Soooo, this is an awesome color as far as I'm concerned. So glad to make a card out of this color and chose to use some dotted swiss on the bottom to make it kind of dainty. This is a new set from Flourishes and I love it so much that I stamped off some of the images that DD's set. It's called Be my Honey I think, and done up with my favy colored pencils. Just used my Spellbinders circle cuts and slapped it all together and added a bit of glitter, as in here a glitter, there a glitter, everywhere I feel like glitter. My picture is not the best and I do so apologize but the lighting was crappy so I used my kitchen counter and that's not too cool.
Anyway DD is at the CHA which I think stands for Crafty Hoarders Assembly or something like that and I'm sure she is having a blast with all the other Hoarders. Hope your week is good fellow bloggers. It's hot here almost 100 today and tomorrow I'm hitting a only beach in the area as I need to soak my feet in some mountain cool water. See you all soon.

Oh, your card is just splendid! I'm sure, with your story, this was a very easy card to make. I bet the moment you saw the inspiration photo, those memories flooded back to the wonderful meeting of Mr. Only.
