Pops of Color!

Hi everyone! The sun has gone down and night is upon us. Hubby just came in and said that it is really snowing out there. He will probably have to get up about 4 a.m. to go do some plowing! The abattoir is supposed to be operational tomorrow but I wonder if that will happen if this storm hits us as expected - no one will be able to get to work!

I have had great pleasure checking out the blog of Heather Telford - Bits and Pieces - http://cardz.wordpress.com/  She makes some amazing cards and has inspired me to try her techniques. I had a friend in for lunch today and we went to the craft room afterwards (of course!) and tried this sponging technique. First I made some templates using light chipboard.... here is the end result.

We used the "Pocket Silhouettes" stamp set...
This is Myra's card .... using Certainly Celery and Old Olive inks -

 And this is my card ... using Baja Breeze and Pacific Point inks -
Thanks for stopping by!
Stay warm and safe.
Many HUGS!

Nice job, Ruthie, I like the three ovals, I tend to forget about ovals as possible masks. What a nice after lunch activity to do with friends. Thanks for linking to my blog and for your encouraging words.
