Colorful Outdoor Bench




Good Saturday morning, it is cold and rainy here today. This card is based on todays IC175 over at SCS, inspiration challenges are in my top three favorite challenges. I luv the outdoor bench seen in the photo. I am a sunshine kinda girl, do you think you could have figured that out on your own....hehehehe. Sunrooms, being outside, and outdoor furniture are inspiring to me. We do not have a sunrrom, but I really want one, they are the best room in a house. I was drwan to the outdoor stuff on the site today, you can see it here GrandinRoad. I used the flower from the Verve set Everlasting Life, I used riding hood red, tangerine tango, and kiwi kiss. They go nicely together. I did some scoring, scalloped the edge of the main panel, and nested the sentiment with circle punches. Very simple, yet very pretty.
Dh and I had a fabulous time in Richmond yesterday. We went to the Cheescake Factory......yummy, I had the Carrot Cake Cheesecake and dh had the Chocolate Tuxedo Cream Cheescake. I could not eat all of mine, I had to bring it home....not to worry I finished it off last night....hehehehe. We also discovered this fabulous store called C28, it is a Christian Retailer. They sale t-shirts, jewelry, and music. It was really awesome young people are working in the store and sharing the gospel of Jesus. They young man that waited on us was on fire for Jesus, before we left the store he asked if we had any prayer concerns that he could pray for. Dh and I where deeply touched. The C28 stands for Colossians 2:8, the founder of the store was impacted by this verse and chose it to be the name of his store. Have a blessed Easter weekend....enjoy!

  4. Beautiful colors. I like how you chose the background flowers in the ad as your inspiration. When I see these challenges, I tend to look just at the item advertised. How clever of you.
