Colour Create # 36 - Blue, Kraft, and White

Hello there! I have to say we have had some wonderful weather here in Houston this week!  We are finally out of that aweful 30 degrees weather.  Yuk!  My little doggie nearly catches his death of cold going out for potty breaks in that temperature.

This week at Colour Create Chris has picked the colors blue, kraft, and white.  Oh, I do love these colors together!!!  The extra option is texture.  Our sponsor is The Rubber Room and they are offering $20 (Canadian) in their store!!



It was time I gave Edwin a whirl! He is from the winter club kit.  He really looks cute, almost as if he is contemplating something. 

The image is colored with distressed inks again and I cut the square out right under his bottom and left his feet dangling so it looks like he is sitting on the edge.  The stars are from my cricut and have been distressed and sponged with white paint. Can you believe not 1 flower?  For my texture piece I whipped out an old tool I used several years ago.  It is the crimper! Remember those?!!!

Be sure to check out all my teamies blogs, I'm sure you will be inspired with what they came up with!  They are all so talented!

Well, that's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by and giving me a shout!  Be sure to join our challenge with these wonderful colors!

Hugs, Dena

An amazing card Dena. Isn't if fab how some of us did girly and others made male cards with these colours? Edwin looks fantastic! The distressing is beautiful, especially the torn edges.

Stunning card Dena and your Edwin is so sweet and so beautifully coloured. Love the little stars and the texture done with the crimper, I haven't used my crimper for a long time, must drag that out again. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Chris

Dena....30˚ weather is not awful! lol It is so much better than 0˚ and lower!!! We're finally up to 30˚! YAY!
Awesome boy card and I like the stars way better than flowers for boys! Kraft, oh yeah...gotta love it! And the stars are really fun when you read the postal cancellation stamp you used! I love that, "far far away"! COOL! Can you share what company it is from? THANKS Dena!
