paperspade

Sorry nothing better came to mind as a title. I'm moved by the celebrations happening at Papertrey's 9th anniversary as well as the 30-Day Coloring Challenge at Kathy R.'s blog. Kudos to those who manage to play along daily with both...




So I'd seen an article about Kate Spade (fashionista I am not, but her designs get me every time) including this photo and it moved me to grab Copics in pink and orange to do some coloring of some digi images that I found when cleaning up my scrap room mess. It was gonna be a 10 minute coloring exercise, ya know? Then I noticed some kraft paper waiting to be recycled... Two hours later I had this set of cards.


Hope the fashion connection counts for the PTI challenge. You're supposed to create based on a piece of clothing you own or would like to own. I'd basically take anything Kate Spade has to offer, even building decoration.

And I had these challenges in the back of my mind when creating:
Mod Squad - Hearts and Flowers
Time Out - #49 Love is the Flower you've got to let Grow
Curtain Call - Sachet (my colors are off, but I remembered a folksy feel)

Our Rosenmontag parade was cancelled due to extreme wind conditions. Boo hoo. Hope your Carnival is progressing under better conditions if you're a Carnival-er! Helau!
