You will often find me in the thumbnail links at the Less Is More (LIM) challenges hosted by the fun and talented Chrissie and Jen. This week is Colour Week and they have come up with the most unique color challenge ever: we are to use the color of our front door! That was just too clever of an idea for me not to play along, but I cut it really close and almost had their front door closed in my face! The sponsor for this week's LIM challenge is Lily of the Valley.
I actually have two front doors, the Big House (that's a little joke) and the Playhouse. Since the Playhouse door is white,
I went with the Big House front door, which is a burgundy wine sorta color:
I actually do have real feathers I've picked up over the years and I've used them on cards now and then. Now they seem to be a hot new trend and I'm all set except but however, since I was applying the sketch to the LIM front-door theme, I felt the urge to make a "new home" card:
I could have used a feather and made a nest for a new home card, now I think about it. That woulda been cute, but nests are still a sensitive subject for me. So . . .
Speaking of trends, I have to say I am enjoying the wood veneer trend. Usually I let the trend wagon drive around the block a few times before I hop on, but these little wooden embellies are too darn stinkin' cute for me to resist! This card is going to a family moving on "up" from a one-story to a two-story, hip-hip-woohoopdeedoo!
BTW, IIJM (is it just me): I'm not sure what the designer had in mind with the curlieQ over the front door, but I think it makes the house look like it has a mustache.
Oh, and I thought you might get a kick out of the first photo I took. Do you see anything achew? (Bless you.)
I actually took three photos before I noticed and then I giggled myself silly for several minutes before I could settle down, uncross my legs, and fix it. It's not easy gluing stuff to those wood veneer pieces. In my file folder entitled, "You Learn Something New Every Day," that was today's entry. (It's also not easy getting all those words on a file folder tab.)
I have two more new friends for you to meet today! You will so enjoy getting to know Bev Gomez of Stamping with Bev and Sherrie M. of A Little Bit of Everything Me! Both of these ladies are fun and very talented, so you won't wanna miss visiting them. Welcome, Bev and Sherrie, and thank you so much for joining the Playhouse journey!
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy. LITS*!
