Yesterday we headed out for
Columbus and the Ohio Pen Show. Let me tell you, the Penmaker was so excited he talked about pens the whole way there... two hours worth. But to let you know just what a wonderful guy he is, he took me to Archiver's first.
(Please excuse the windblown hair.)
We hadn't been to this location
before, and were really surprised at the size of this store. Ahhhh... a cardmaker's dream! I bought the new Tim Holtz Christmas Seasonal Series Distress Ink Set and his Core'dinations Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection. Also a few 12 x 12 sheets of Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium Collection. Fun times!!!
This is my first time to enter a card
at The Play Date Cafe Challenge. The suggested colors for the week are
Gray... Yellow... Pink...
Here is what I created...
Ohhhh, my gray looks more
taupe here. I started out with a light shade of gray cardstock and it looked really washed out. So I switched to Authentique's "Euphoria" from their Blissful Collection. It matched my light gray to a T, so I'm assuming that it is just a darker gray. These other papers are from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 6 x 6 Paper Pad Madison Avenue. My cardstock is Ivory and the Distress Ink is Antique Linen.
These brads are from
My Minds Eye Madison Avenue and Portobello Road Collections.
I can't tell you how much
I love the I Am Roses flowers. No matter how many I buy, I never seem to have just exactly the color I need in the size I want to use. Good excuse to buy more, right? This yellow and white curly rose came from a mixed package... great for getting a variety of shades and sizes. My stick pin is Maya Road's Heart Trinket Pins.
The sentiment is an old set
from my stash and stamped with black Archival Ink on a stack of Spellbinder's Lacy Circles and Large Classic Circles popped up with 3-D foam adhesive squares.
The Penmaker is busy turning
a pen... I can hear his lathe running full speed. Someone offered to give him $160.00 for one of his finest (shown here) at the show, so he's very much motivated today!
This is an "Elegant" set -
Titanium Gold and Rhodium. The wood is Buckeye Burl.
Thanks for stopping by!
