A BIT SUBDUED

With the holiday on Monday and the fact that I went back to work, this week is just zooming along. Since I have been speeding along at a frenzied pace and doing a lot of bright projects I thought I would tone it down a bit and try for a more subtle effect.


I used Cattails #2 and Filled Swallowtail Butterfly
from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF
I love the soft aqua and brown tones in the paper which went so well with the nature theme.

We are all finished with the find the freebie in the design team's blog but Lindsay has some really fun ones on her blog THE FRUGAL CRAFTER. ALSO, if you join Lindsay's new LSS Group at SNR Card Universe There is another freebie in it for you.

AND, this is a special week because you have a chance to win 10 stamps from Lindsay by playing along at INSPIRATIONAL CARD SKETCHES. All you have to do is make a card using this sketch (I flipped it on its side for my card). Then, go on over to ICS and link it to their blog.








The design team have all used the sketch in their projects this week.
