Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Blue and Brown!

Hey everyone! Did everyone have a great weekend?  We had a good one.  The time changed and I am having a hard time adjusting! I am going to bed soooo early and getting up at the crack of dawn!  I'm not fond of this time change because it gets dark so early that my poor hubby goes to work in the dark and then comes home in the dark and we are outdoor people, so it just messes us all up! Oh well, we will adjust soon.

Time for a new challenge at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog.  I tell ya, every week that I see what my teammates make for this challenge, I am impressed.  Their work is just amazing, so go check it out and join in with us for the "BLUE AND BROWN" color theme this week.

I am so proud of my self for FINALLY using the little shaker pieces that I bought last year at NEC.  They are pretty small though and not many of my stamps will fit in there, but this little cutie from Lili of the Valley did and I am so pleased.  I used the gorgeous papers from Nitwit called "Heavenly".  They were perfect for the challenge.  I also used the new Postage Collection from Lili of the Valley.  OMG! I just LOVE it!!!! How cute are all those little postoid stamps?!!!

Here is a list of my Wild Orchid Crafts products that I used:

That's about it for me today! I hope you will check out the challenge and join in!
Thank you for visiting me today! I so appreciate it!

Hugs, Dena

Hi Dena

What is it about your cards that always make them jump out at me from Blogger Dashboard? When I have a few minutes to do a bit of blog hopping I just run through the pics on there and click on the ones that appeal, then I realise who they're by, and surprise, surprise - it's yours again!

Another FABBIE - as always!

Ooooh Dennnna! How GORGEOUS is this?!!! Gotta tell you .. these colors that you chose .. the PERFECT shades of blue/brown/cream ... is just absolutely DREAMY! So subtle, soft and divine! And the doily and lace just adds something like shabby chicness, cozyness, girliness ... sigh! sOooOo BEAUTIFUL! And love how you added those shaker pieces too!

ps. My hubby has to work at night also .. goes to work in the dark, comes home in the dark too. lol. I hope you and your hubby will soon get adjusted to the hours. ;)

Big Hugs to You!
