Black and White
This has been one of the coldest winters I've experienced since moving to Wisconsin. We have had a great deal of snow (which I LOVE!) but it has been too cold to go snowmobiling! (boo : ( hoo!) I decided to "warm up" my blog with some color! and this week I have created some cards that will have you reaching for your sun glasses!
I was inspired by some terrific card ideas in the August/September issue of Papercrafts magazine. The designers created cards using simple black and white paper and then adding some bright colors using markers. Recently, after taking a VIP, Jennifer, to the airport (wink, Jenny) I stopped in to an Archivers store. Getting to go to Archivers really helped to numb the pain of saying goodbye to my sweet niece. It is a treat I rarely get to have - as the closest Archivers is almost 3 hours away from me. I was thrilled to find 5 different black and white papers by "Doodlebug Design, Inc." Plus a HORRIBLY! expensive sheet of black and white butterfly paper from the "Rusty Pickle" Pop Star Collection.
I finally had some time to play with the papers this week and -> as suspected <- I had a blast! and I think the outcome is just sweet!
Thank you for looking! and Stay warm!!
