Colour play

I love playing with colour, and I love playing with Dollies... so I always love the Design Dollies Colour Challenge days!  This week the colours are yellow, white and kraft.  Here's my contribution:

Only a simple little project for me this week ~ using some reply-paid envelopes, a journalling stamp (Lil Davis) and a few scraps to cover up the printed part of the envelope.  I'll be using these to post off a couple of RAKs soon, and hopefully it's another way to brighten someone's day!

I'm entering my little project at:
# Creative Inspirations ~ Challenge 40 ~ Recycled element
# Simon Says ~ Sing it Baby ~ Inspired by the Elvis Presley song, "Return to Sender"

I've also been doing some more monochromatic work (ever noticed I *LOVE* mono??) for a challenge over at Scrap BoutiqueAmanda challenged us to create a friendship-themed layout with a monochromatic colour scheme.   I started this layout yesterday when I visited Melissa, and I've been procrastinating about a title... finally decided to keep it simple and I ended up with this:

The lace at the bottom is from the gorgeous RAK that Deb sent me.  Thank you again xx

  3. Oh this turned out just gorgeous Karen, the sewing is just beautiful and the polka dot background is just so perfect for this mono layout, I have to let you in on a secret, what you did with those envelopes for the colour challenge is such an amazing idea, but I actually didn't know you can use them again, wow I must remember this from now on. Clever girl, this is brilliant, see I am learning heaps from you dear friend. Melxx
