Thanks

Have I told you I have a serious blogging crush on Laura Bassen?  Well I do.  I love her style...and her videos always make me smile. She's crazy talented and she's real. So yes...she is my blogging crush.  Her use of color is amazing.   This week she's up for Make It Monday showing how to create ombre backgrounds.  My background is no where near as amazing as Laura's, but I'm pleased with the crisp/clean layout.

Happy Friday my friends.  I'm off on a crafty weekend with two of my sister-in-laws and girl friends.  The boys are in charge of Pat for the weekend...making sure he takes it easy!  I'll be checking in regularly to make sure he is okay. Pat was very clear that I should still go away.  "If it was my golf weekend, and you'd had meniscus surgery...I probably wouldn't even call."  Still feeling guilty!  Hope you have fun plans for the weekend too.

Love the bright colors and the string is a great touch. Don't feel guilty, you need to feed your soul, and the boys will yell if there's trouble.

Your card is amazing too, Lynn. Did I ever tell you that I love your style as well?

Laura's style is definitely one of my faves too (I'm sure I'm in a boat full of other crafters with this opinion), but I think your style is fabulous as well! Great job on the ombre card - very colourful!

Oh, I have the same blogging crush as you. Fabulous take on the challenge. I love how your color is so saturated and concentrated, and you still have kept your wonderful white space. Genius. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend away. Looking forward to your posts when you return. Lots of pics, I hope.

Your ombre' panel is just gorgeous, Lynn. So bright and happy looking. I love the addition of the thread, too. I'm glad you're getting away for a crafty weekend. We all need that now and then.

LOVE this card and thanks for sharing the tutorial video!!! VERY inspiring! I'm already thinking of the stamp sets I have in my stash that I can use to lift this technique!

Virginia Lu said...

I am joining you on a blog/card-making crush on Laura...she is "absolutely delicious" as I had met her in real life (wink!)! Your interpretation of her style is fabulous!! I love the inking and gradient of bright colors...and those strings and die, totally yours and Laura's meshed into one!
