Get into the groove

Another card today made with the fabby NEW and upcoming set 'good friend' from Stampin' Up! You know when you have new stash and start to play with it, I am beginning to find out that I am at my happiest with my work when I use my own style. Do you know what I mean ? (sorry if you're thinking what the heck is this mad lady on about lol!), I have been playing around with these stamps and combined with an old colour challenge from the amazing Kristina Werner.

I am finding out more and more, especially since blogging that if you are happy with your work others appreciate it whatever your style and ability. Anyhoo zen moment over hee hee, I really, really like these colours together - so classy and I will definitely be using them again. They are very vanilla, basic grey, more mustard and really rust - hope you like.

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Hi Emma,

You are right!! I do love and appreciate your style...I find it very hard to imitate but I wish I could sometimes!!! I like to sometimes break out of the old style I do all the time and try something a bittie different!
I love the colours on your card and that sentiment set looks very handy!! Loving seeing all the new SU stuff!! Have a fab day! Judy xx

Oh yum yum pigs bum. I just love what you've done with this set. Vry nice combo as well. < M xx

Unknown said...

I totally agree about doing what feels good for you. Creating can be too much of a chore otherwise. The colours on your card are beautiful, very autumnal and grey is the new black in my book so a huge thumbs up from me!

Hi Emma,
You are so right about concentrating on your own style. I tend to go off at tangents which can be disconcerting at times - but then I get bored easily LOL.
I love your uncluttered style. You are showing the new SU products very well indeed.
