Pink + Violet + Gray = Beautiful

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I don't know about you, but for me today feels like Ground Hog's Day. Yesterday, many were off from 's work do to President's Day (YEAH!) and today was yet another day off for me--thanks to Mother Nature herself. I'm lov'n it. I managed to carve out a little time to participate in my first challenge over at CR8FN Color Challenge. Just like the weather, I'm lov'n the color selection for this week's challenge. You know I'm a purple girl. 

You can't help not to love this cool color palette. I love the softness and can only hope to have translated this in my card below.

Sometimes it's funny how a card may turn out. That is, I have an idea when I begin, but that idea takes on a whole other journey of its own. I think I can safe say, 'This is one of those times.' It borders on being a little baroque, but I'm liking it. Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

I'm Back

Happy Hellos Everyone!

It's so nice to be back with you on my blog again. As you may know it's been a minute since my last post, at lease it feels that way.  Between time and life itself, I've been busy. Its been a good busy, but never the less busy. On top of that, I've been having problems with my new computer and camera. I hate to admit it, but the more I'm learning about my laptop and my camera, it appears as though I am the one with the problem--go figure. I am so accustom to using my old laptop and software--well, lets just say I knew it like the back of my hand.

So, anyway, today I decided to try posting a card. It's the same card I posted over at SOC. So, if you haven't has an opportunity to visit lately, now would be a good time to check out some of the SOC Design Team February posting.

To create this card I used Hero Arts flower stamp, Hero Arts background stamp, SU sentiment stamp, SU cardstock, SU classic ink, Tim Holtz distressing inks, Ranger Ink embossing powder, pearl spritz, Glossy Accents, pearls and dimenisionals.

Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

Papertrey Contest Entry

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope your Thursday morning is off to a fantastic beginning. The last set of stamp sets arrived in today's mail. I'm so happy. I'm hoping to have a terriffic weeknd filled with stamping new images. That's what I get for visiting other peoples blogs. When I arrived home after work, I notice many of the bloggers I visit were participating in the contest over at PTI, so I decided to throw my name in the hat for an opportunity to win the wonderful prize being offered. If you're interested , there's PTI link to the right of the blog. The only PTI stamps I currently have are sentiments and that's what I used. There was no inspirational photo. The only require was to select from the color selection posted on the PTI site. I selected one of the warmer color families. I didn't have much time to ponder over the layout of the card. I was exhausted anyaway. I think my entry turned out well barring how exhaused I am.  You can't tell from this photo, but I used dimesisionals to achieve a raised effect on two different levels. I also used dimenission to make the tag bow outward. Because of the warm hues and the limited frills, I consided this to be a unisex card. I would send it to a male recipient. As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

Just For You

Happy Hellos Everyone:
Happy Hump Day and all that wonderful stuff! Some of you may have noticed that I have had a time posting lately. That is I go to post something and you may have clicked on it and it wasn't there. I'm testing this post out so, it's slightly abbreviated. I have a few cards I would like to share with you this evening; however, in the meantime, I made this card a few weeks ago and I'm just getting around to posting it. It appears as though it would be appropriate for this time of the year--that is it's colors are red and white--right on time for Valentines Day.

You wouldn't believe how long it took this card to up-load. You can't tell by this photo, but I think I have a learned a few new tricks regarding light and shadows, so the photos in upcoming post should look a lot better. Well, I better not push my luck. Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

Kick'n Off the Week at WMS

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I cannot believe we're seven days of the month of February and I am just getting around to my first post of the month. This past week has been a blur for me. My programs weren'y cooperating with me last week. With me not being able to post, I took time to visit a few blogs and boy did I see some nice things out there. In between my regular day-to-day activities, Kevin caught the flu and no sooner he recovers, I caught something. It's not the flu--perhaps it the cousin to the flu. :) Whatever it is, it's not over just yet. Which is too bad because there is so many happenings going on this--birthdays, anniversary, wedding stuff, etc. Aside from all that, I still have not installed PhotoShop onto my new computer, so I finally broke down to begin to learn this new program. It's truely not Adobe PhotoShop, but I figure by the time I learn enough, I will have found my PhotoShop software. That's how it works normally--right???

With all that said, I managed to make a few cards this weekend. Some are for the next issue of SOC E:spire Magazine. By the way, I hope you were able to take some time to view the premiere issue. It's full of lots of information and plenty of inspiration.

The first challenge of the week I'm participating in is over at WMS. Below is the inspirational sketch.

...and this is what I created....

Thanks for taking time to stop by The Peddler's Gallery.
