Colorful “Awash”

My last Awash with Flowers card was a neutral, so here's one with lots of color.

Awash_retiring I cased this from Jill Coleman, another demo.  I loved the colors she used for the flowers.  She had a Taken with Teal (or maybe Bermuda Bay or even Tempting Turquoise; it's hard to tell on a computer) card base, though.  This is another one we'll be making at April workshops.

This is another "retiring colors" card.  Here's what I used –

Stamp Sets:  Awash with Flowers, Three Little Words
Ink:  Basic Black, Pink Passion, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry classic; Green Galore Stampin' Write marker
Paper:  Basic Black Whisper White, Pixie Pink card stock
Accessories:  Punches:  Word Window, Eyelet Border, Modern Label; Mini glue dots, Vintage brads, black gingham ribbon

This set will be in the brand new 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog, but you can order it in April!  It's also free with a qualifying workshop order – so contact me to set a date!  It's so fresh and fun.  You can find more details here, under "Promotions."

I was reading on Diana Gibbs' blog that she watched "Gone with the Wind" for the first time.  Her take on the movie is hilarious, but even funnier is her "movie rating."  We have a similar rating for movies.  Whenever we see something that's a real "yawner," we say, "It's a good Bryce movie."  That's our house that we rent out on weekends.  We used to have DVDs available for the "guests" to watch, but we realized our inventory was dwindling.  Apparently our "guests" liked the movies more than we did, and decided to keep them.  Can you imagine?  I mean, "free movie with weekend rental" was not part of the deal!  So now we keep them locked in a cabinet for our viewing torture pleasure.  "A Beautiful Mind" was one that went to Bryce (and got stolen).  I think watching that was the most torturous two hours of my life.  I kept waiting for the Oscar winning part – which finally showed up in the last five minutes.  Really, I can't believe it beat "Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring" that year.  Ah, well.  What do I know about film making?  My favorite movies are of my boys, or home movies of my family when I was little.  How fun they are to watch!
