Muse 49 - Thank you!


Ah! I feel warmer already! This polar vortex has resulted in cold winter temperatures that have forced me to stay inside a lot this week, but Laurie's sunny Muse cheered me right up. Great fresh colours and a lovely message, too!


I focused on the shapes and colours that Laurie used. The flower is from Impress and the sentiment is from EMDash. I gave the flower a little 'dimension' by shading the petals with copic markers. It's an easy way to give your simply-stamped images a bit more interest!

There is still time for you to play along with us - the deadline is Monday morning at 8:00 am EST. Then you can vote until Tuesday morning, and the winners will be announced on Tuesday at noon.

Only thing sunnier than the sun itself is a sunny flower. I love the dimension the Copics make on the petals.

Gorgeous cheery card, Ardyth! No wonder it's made you feel warmer :) Love the added dimension from the shading and Stickles.

I'm finally getting a chance to catch up on my visiting and blogger is erasing and giving me an error message on every other blog! Aacckk! And it doesn't matter what operating system I use.

So, Ardy, I hope you don't mind that I am just going to say that I have caught up with each post I've missed and tell you in this one comment box how much I love each and every one! You'd think, after a while, that you might hit a sour note, but nope, each creation is more brilliant and creative than the last one!! You WOW me every single time!!

I hope you are enjoying the weekend! Hugs, Darnell

Your card is like a burst of sunshine. I love the bit of sparkle on the petals, and how your sentiment overlaps with the flower.

...giggled at Darnell's comment...we have all come to expect perfection at every visit...and we are NEVER disappointed!

The green card base - stunning! I'm quite sure that 9.9/10 of us would have reached for yellow or orange! Beautiful shading of the petals! Love the sentiment stamp!

Petra said...

CAS cards are always striking, and yours is just so. I love the large sentiment placed over your flower as well as the hint of glitter :)Great job!

Gerrina said...

Just the kind of warmth I like in this wintertime! Here no snow, but slowly getting a little bit colder and no sign of snow, but sun in the middle of the day...healty weather! Have a good week and warm greetings, Gerrina
