Red and Aqua

Hello!  Happy Friday!  It's a long weekend over here so it's even more exciting!  The weather here this week has been absolutely fantastic!  Just like summer!  We have been enjoying the park everyday and playing outside!  I am sure you can imagine how happy I am!  The heat and no bugs yet!  Well sorta but not really bad bug season yet!  I don't know if you've noticed but I lost my mojo!  I only made 2 cards this week and yesterday was the first one and today one!  It was a nice little break but I also really missed being creative.  :>  

When I saw this patterned paper I thought it would be fun to emboss with the aqua powder on it!  Not sure if I actually like how it turned out though:


It's really hard to get a good picture of it!  :>  I had the hardest time deciding what color of base to go with, in the end kraft seemed to look best.

Well I am off! About to eat supper and than going to my husband's softball game!  :>  I will be back tomorrow with a new Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday challenge!  :>

I actually thought it was acetate when I first looked. Beautiful card and happy spring! We just got back from baseball...so nice to finally get fresh air after tons of rain!

Quite a different look Anita...not sure if I truly like it, but it is good to look at different things.

Anita, remember you've worked hard making so many cards during your hostess time, the mojo is bound to take a rest for a little bit. It'll come back soon. . .and I like this card! The colors are so fun! Hugs to you and have a fun weekend! :)
