Best Thoughts


Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  I just always like the Saturday Blog Hop…what great inspiration from the Design Team.  The theme this week is “Color Me Happy” – images that need coloring.  Okay…NOT my best thing to do!


I do like this flower image that is in the Hostess set but still…not all that great with the coloring part!  Here’s the details…

  • Blushing Bride – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Blushing Bride – 3 3/4 x 5 1/2, run through the butterfly folder, layer strip of Birthday Bouquet dsp (5/8 x 5 1/2) under panel then add piece of Dazzling Glimmer paper (1/9 x 5 1/2) on the top.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals.
  • Watermelon Wonder – 1/2 x 4 3/4, cut on diagonal and add to card front
  • Mint Macaron – 1/8 x 5 1/8, cut on diagonal and add to card front
  • Shimmery White – cut out using Lots of Label Framelit, stamp flower using Basic Black Archival, color using Aquapainter and Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron markers, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Mint Macaron – stamp banner and greeting using Basic Black Archival then punch out with the Duet Banner Punch, add using dimensionals
