90-Minute Scramble and Another Card Too

Happy Saturday everyone!

There was a 90-Minute scramble over in the Hero Arts Flickr group today. Greta was the host and she came up with such a fun theme! She wanted us to use our least favorite color. I looked through my photostream and realized that I rarely use yellow as a focal color on my cards, so that was my choice and here is my card.


You can take a look and everyone's cards here.



I also made another card using the beautiful Gerbera Daisy image from Flourishes. I colored it with Copics and added some script here and there with the La Letter stamp from Hero Arts. I then added it to the card base which was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings, clear set.


We had a storm pass through today. It looked very scary on radar and there were tornadoes nearby but we just had some heavy rain and hail, thank goodness! It always scares me and I'm so relieved it wasn't worse! With all the horrible weather lately, I'm very grateful!

Hope all my U.S. friends are having a wonderful, Memorial Day weekend! We've been enjoying some friends who are staying with us. . .love when they visit!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Your cards are lovely Barb. I don't use yellow much either. Your yellow flower is rather stunning though. I do like you Gerbera card. So pretty. Glad you are okay weather wise... it has been scary reading about all the tornadoes and wondering who has been affected. Take care

Glad your storm wasn't any worse...I can't imagine what a tornado would be like, sounds soooo scary and what I see on the news is heart breaking.

Your cards are beautiful!! The yellow one is so sweet and the daisy's are stunning!! Love them! I want to know where to get that daisy stamp...or is it a digi?

Glad your storm blew over, I can't believe you and I share the least favourite colour, I can NEVER do cards in yellow! You have done a fabulous job with both these cards.

Hi, Barb! Both of these cards are gorgeous! I love the Tall Flower in the yellow! I hardly ever use yellow, either, but you've made it look good! And I love those daisies, too! :-)
