Cyber Crafting

Last night my BFF and I jumped onto Live Messenger which we'd never done before and crafted together!!!

After sorting out all the technology hiccups we had so much fun - now we will be able to craft together all the time. It was really amazing as we talked through all the steps we were taking to make our cards. Who knew there were so many decisions to make!

We decided to take up two new challenges and combine them - why not give our selves a big task for the occasion.

So we took the colour combo from the Play Date Cafe and the sketch from Just Us Girls and came up with two completely different cards!

Here's mine - I've turned the sketch on it's side

I've used:
-Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Regal Rose DSP and Sweet Always DSP (Retired)

Melon Mambo
Stamp Set - Well Scripted
Other: Melon Mambo Ribbon, Pearls, a brad, Nestablilities AND
I've used two beautiful crochet flowers handmade by Patrice herself (isn't she amazing!!)

Go over to Patrice's blog and check out the card she made!!!

Here is the colour pallet

Here is the sketch
