It’s April, and that fun time of the month again! Besides the excitement of it being my anniversary of 26 years yesterday (hence why I’m late), it’s also a fabulous blog hop over at Wacky Watercooler!
Grab a cup of coffee Make a pot of coffee and prepare yourself for a real treat of a blog hop and some talented creators.
What we have done here is to go to another person’s blog, for me, Buffy Cooper on the hop, and find a few cards or projects and recreate them using the soon-to-retire 2014-2016 In-Colors.
You know me, I’m all about themes! The first picture will be Buffy’s items, the next will be mine using my theme. Since there are five retiring colors, I found five, yes five, cards to re-create using those colors.
First. I started with this nifty box Buffy had directions for. Can you believe it, I’ve never made a box using the Envelope Punch Board? Gasp, what’s wrong here?? Here is the link to Buffy’s box and her box –
And, here is my box front decorated –
This card from this post I found on Buffy’s site really caught my eye. It’s simple.
And, here is how I re-created it –
Remember, I got a theme going here. It’s so nice and bright!
This card was another eye-catching one for me. It came from this post.
And I pretty much copied it. With a twist.
Cheers because we had a nice ‘toast’ to celebrate 26 years!
Now, this card was just stunning in color. It’s from this post.
And, my take on it –
Because in a marriage, there’s always got to be laughter! Either with one another or at each other!!! Lol!
I really just kept finding cards to copy. Buffy has some great work! This is card four from this post.
And, my really sweet take on it –
Although I forgot to emboss the Tangelo Twist, you get the idea. And, guys don’t really notice things like that anyway!
Ok. Ok. Last card I found. It can be found at this link.
And, yes, we celebrated Thursday.
So. Nice, huh? Guess my ‘theme’ in addition to the ‘Retiring In-Colors’?
Anniversary. All the cards have a definite theme of love. All are masculine of sorts too. So, Happy Anniversary, Ed! Lot’s of love to you for many more years to come!
