Curtain Call Colour Challenge : Act #36

Hello and welcome back for another Sunday Arvo reveal of Curtain Call Colour Challenge colours!  This week Act #36 brings Real Red, Whisper White, Kraft and Night of Navy for us to play with.  What a fresh and fun colour palette!
As you will be able to see from the 2 cards below, I really couldn't decide which one I wanted to post so I decided to post both!!!!  Our girls are away with Nana and Pop at the moment which gave me plenty of UNINTERRUPTED time in the craft room- can you hear the quiet????  It is really nice for a couple of days but we do miss them when they are away for any more than that.  I have to admit that I really LOVE having a clean and tidy house that has everything in its place!!!  without the girls here it actually stays that way- go figure!
Anyhoo, I had best get this finished and do some baking for the visitors coming this afternoon!

If you would like to play along, head over to Stacey's Stamping Stage and link your creation in with Mr Linky! Stacey will be awarding one creation with "The Lead" and 5 creations for the "Top 5 show stopper", qualifying to adorn your blog with the badges and share the news with all!!

As always, if you would like some inspiration to get you started with these colours you can head over to the Design Team members blogs to check out their impressive creations and our illustrious leader, Stacey, will have a beautiful creation to get you going too!

Aaaaah, the sound of silence LOL! I hear you loud and clear re: the quiet and neatness of the house, and yes, it is too quiet after a day or so. Little treasures grow up waaaay too quickly and soon enough we will wish there was noise and things to clean up.

However, in the meantime, you go girl with two cards :D Great use of this week's colours!

Marisa said...

Ooops, forgot. Love your new blog layout!

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa) said...

Glad to hear that you've got some time for yourself - enjoy the peace while you can! :)
The cards are amazing, innovative, and so you, my friend! I just adore your style, and your creativity, wonderful work with both!! xxx

Christina said...

Fantastic cards, Sue! I especially love the second one, with the embossed stars echoing the main image. Love the way you frayed the twill tape, too!

Enjoy your quiet time and tidy house!

Glad you had some quiet creating time. It can be hard to come by when you're a busy mom.

The cards are great! You've used two embossing folders I love (I only own one, so far!) Lots of wonderful inspiration!
