Css blog hop - color challenge

Hallo,
Welcome to the first CSS blog hop for the year - this time is a color challenge - we started with one set of colors and ended up with 2 sets of colors - I got 2 cards done but only for 1 color challenge.
Color challenge #1 = red, yellow, green and #2 = red, yellow, and turquoise.
Be sure to check out Gina's color spotlight video here - http://stamptv.ning.com/forum/topics/color-spotlight-stvcsp8
If you are following the hop then you came to me from Sharri's blog - http://www.istamp4u.blogspot.com/2011/01/gina-k-css-alumni-hop.html

This time I am last on the list so we hope you have enjoyed the hop tonight!!!


I did my first card with a set called Fine Furnishings - and some paper piecing, Spellbinders dies, Some great DP and some old pale yellow trim.
My second card uses the 'Buds and vases' set and some more paper piecing - but also my copics.
All stamps are of course from Gina K :)
That's all for me this friday night!!!!
Have a great weekend!!!!
Take Care
Tera

What a wonderful way to end the hop, with these two great cards. I love that floral dp used on the first card with the pillows made from the same paper, or should I say material :) Looks very comfy. Those roses in the vase are gorgeous and look real, as if to touch. Also love that dp on this one. Great job.

Karen Denson said...

I love both of your cards. Fancy a chat just kind of pulls you in to the living room. It is beautiful and I absolutely love the background paper that you used. Kind of reminds me of the good ol' days. The roses in the vase are just amazing. You did an awesome job with your copic markers. I enjoyed looking at everyone's blogs. You all did fantastic.

There were a few blogs that I could not leave a comment because there was no anonymous space to click on and I can't make the google account work.

Thanks everyone.
