Life In Technicolor

When this post goes live, I'll be a bit more excited than the day before since it'll be only two days until our wedding! Anyway, I still had to produce a thank you card for a dear colleague of mine who'd leave us by the end of the month. On the top of that I won't be here when they give it to him... oh, well. So I wanted to create something pretty - in a masculine way. And since nowadays the RIC challenges inspire me a LOT (thanks to Jennifer), I decided to go with this weeks photo.


Well, I couldn't imagine myself wearing this dress but I admit it's a pretty one. :-) So here goes my card to it.


Just like in the inspirational photo, there's a lot of stripes going on here, eh? It almost feels like a Julie Ebersole card for me. I said almost. There's a long way to go for me till I get there. LOL


By the way, my colleague loves his black bike, so to highlight it I put shiny glossy accent on it.
I'm also entering this card into the latest Lawnscaping Challenge - Dust 'em Off as I haven't used those ties in ages!

Thanks for stopping by and please think of me on Saturday so that I won't fall over on the church steps like Jennifer Garner did at the Oscar's! :-D
Wonder where the title of this post comes from? Here you go.

Cinnamon Bag + Some Get Well Wishes For My Godfather

I got this for my bday from D. He gave a coupon to me because he couldn't decide amongst them (hehe). And then we went together to the shop. I love it so much. It's compact enough so that I won't walk like a grumpy old woman in the end of the day. If I have more stuff, I'll put them into one of my textil bags. Perrrfect.


And this one is a mini card I created for my godfather. He got into the hospital a week ago. And it seems that he and us will have to be very patient, it can take at least a month till he'll be okay from every aspects. :-/ I'm so sorry for him, I know how much he wanted to be at my wedding... and he's not even old or something, only 53 this year.




So I created  a mini card for him (with brushes since he's a painter) so that it fit on his tiny table or into one of its drawers or maybe as a bookmark. The main thing is that it's small and he can have a peek at it any time. There's also a little smile in the lower right corner of the card in pale tomato, which I forgot to take a pic of...


And since it's Anything Goes at PaperSmooches again, I'm entering it into that challenge.

Temperly London

Is the name of the current challenge at RIC's. And I went along with this picture.



I got new markers, so I combined Copics and Promarkers with some PaperSmooches stamps here. I have to say I'm more satisfied with Promarkers currently (not only because they're somewhat cheaper).



The idea of the washi tape background for the sentiment came in in the end. I wanted it to pop out, since it'll be for some other newly weds. ;-)

Singing Hippo

For this card I used a piece of scrap from my previous card - I love the way the green paint turned out. :-)


I used some nay HA dye ink with some water to create a background for the hippo, and then white embossed it.


As it will be a thank you card for the girl who is the leader of the church orchestre at our wedding in 2 weeks, I reached for a note chipboard, coloured it with a brand new Promaerker (Sunburnt Pink - love it!) and put the final touch with some Glossy Accent on it.


Have you noticed the background? Yes? It's the cover of a Rolling Stones live record from the 70s and belongs to my future-father-in-law who's rather a classical music person. :-)) Well, you never know!
