Color Inspiration #57

Thanks to ever busy Kristina, there’s another colour challenge!
I decided to take part despite the – for me – difficult colours.

Yep, those are six (okay, minus the neutral white there are five) colours, including mustard and red, whew.
Since I needed to stock up my stash of Thank You cards, here’s my take on the challenge:

I used my new Martha Stewart punch “Medium Glacial Snowflake” (super cute) and some patterned paper (MME Andrea Victoria, MME Bloom & Grow, Stampin’ Up So Saffron, PTI Pink Patterns, PTi Bitty Box Basics) to punch out the snowflakes, adhered them to a 4 1/2 inch square card (SU Whisper White CS) with 3D Glue Dots and stamped the sentiment (PTI Beyond Basic Borders) in L’Amour Red ink (PTI) before providing a finishing touch by rounding the corners with the 1/2 inch side of my beloved Corner Chomper.

I tried my best with the pictures, but it’s grey and snowing outside…

Anyway, thanks for looking and don’t forget:
The polls for the Christmas Card 2009 are still open 🙂

So long!

Die Jahreszeit der klammen Finger

… ist angebrochen.

The weather gets cooler, I get sick, my favourite blogger Amber is whining again – gotta be autumn now, don’t you think?

Some random notes:

1. I need a new haircut.

2. I’m typing this from my new acer aspire, because my old laptop couldn’t be restored. This was super expensive and so I can’t buy any food until… summer next year. (Just kidding – winter next year is more likely…)

3. I already finished 10 layouts for The Album.

4. I still need to find an album to put them in though. Any recommendations?

5. I am really excited to see what Stampin’ Up! will have in their new catty that comes out the 1st of October.

6. The election of the German government will take place on the 27th and if you don’t know who to vote for I’d highly recommend the Wahl-O-Mat.

7. In case you don’t want to vote, please take a look at the following video featuring the very intelligent Ulrich Wickert (if you happen to understand any German).

7. If you don’t understand any German, you could watch the election-related video I posted some time ago featuring the wonderful Craig Ferguson instead.

8. Meet todays card:

The sentiment was written with a black SU marker by yours truly 😉 But it’s copied from the “French Script” font that I adore.

Gotta go to sleep now, have a good night!

ETA: The vid was found by the genius that is Thorsten. Thank you for telling me off, Mr. Perfect… 😛
