Anything Goes!

Hi, and welcome!  Anything goes - what a concept!  I have so much stuff in my house that needs to go - I've been having a "spring cleaning" over the past several weeks.  I still have a lot of work yet to do - mostly in my craft room, but I'm making progress.  I saved my craft room for last - the best (or worst) for last!  It's a pure disaster zone and it's so hard to find what I need, so I play my own little challenge each week - make a project using whatever you can find!

This week I made a little card using some pretty things that I had laying around and I didn't have to dig for.  So the whole Anything Goes theme for our Saturday Paper a la Mode Challenge over at the Outlawz was perfect!

I'll never be able to get this card into a standard envelope because of the flowers, but I just love the layers and depth - maybe I will put it in a little frame and hang it on the wall.  The lighting is a bit off (I have terrible lighting in my house), so I need to try to get a better picture outdoors and replace this one so you can see the true colors - that background is definitely not that yellow.

Thanks for stopping by this week!  Stop on by over at The Outlawz and play along with us!

Big hugs!  Have a blessed day!

Blue and White Inspiration

Hi, and thanks for stopping by!  I am late this week putting my post together, but I guess that's not so unusual.  This week our Saturday Paper a la Mode Challenge over at The Outlawz is a photo inspiration.  Madeleen chose a fabulous photo of a stack of blue and white cups.

Ack!  What to do, what to do?  I decided to throw in a bit more color, but keep it in line with the intricate patterns of the little china cups.  I love the layered flower I made - so simple, but I thought it turned out nicely.

Thank you again for stopping by!  Big hugs!
