Had a great time in Omaha. Had 'spa' time at Pemberley's! Stayed at sister Gail's house, drank some vino, chatted, went to Archivers - spent part of my Christmas gift cards, went shoe shopping with daughter Amy, and in my 'spare' time worked on more student (FRESHMAN) re'sumes.

I'm most excited about my Pebbles Inc Ribbon Iron. I'm going to have to give it a go soon! Also bought an i-rock Crystal Setting Tool. Watch for non-wrinkled ribbon and bling!

Blue Chablis
~Grey cardstock - edges smudged with Memento London Fog
~Layer of BasicGrey Periphery Chablis
~Grey grosgrain ribbon (it was too wide so I folded it in half and 'pleat' sewed it) I buy a ribbon iron and then end up scrunching and folding the ribbon...
~Square layer of dark grey cardstock frames another layer of the BasicGrey Periphery Chablis square scallop cut using Spellbinder die cut and Cuttlebug
~Dark grey tab punched using Stampin' Up Word Window
~Grey metal brad
~Image (freebie) from Marjie's Malarkies (I THINK - sorry if I'm attributing it to the wrong artist), colored with Copics, the stamen dotted with Silver Metallic Sharpie Poster Paint
~The leaf on the lower right of the card just happened to actually be on the BasicGrey design paper - I like where it ended up!

Play Date Cafe - Color Splash (the challenge calls for lilac/purple - I had to go with blue because I don't have just the right Copic Violet range to do subtle purples)
