Time to Create

Welcome! I had some time off from work and went on a scrapping retreat so I was able to spend time with paper, ink, stamps and friends!
Over at Top Tip Tuesday the challenge is to use 3 or more papers. I love this challenge- I really like patterned papers and love combining them together. My tip- when you are combining papers that may not seem to obviously go together- find the common element and place them close by. In my card- I rotated my circle with the flowers so the orange flowers are close to her orange shirt and the orange polka dot mat and the sentiment mat is place near leaves with similar shades of green.

And since I continue to be inspired by Di and everyone posting to her blog and their use of snippets- I made the next card with my leftovers from the above card. It sure makes sense for me to use my scraps right away--if I stash them...they are out if sight, out of mind!

That is all for today but I have a few more cards to post and hopefully will post them later this week.
Thanks for stopping by. And a late thanks to our Veterans! I cannot express enough my on-going thanks and gratitude to our brave military- past and present!


  1. Diane, I absolutely love both of these card. I really like the papers your went with on your first card and the way you placed them to compliment each other (thanks for that good tip). Your second card just brought a smile to my face. Wonderful job on both. Also glad to hear you had time to create. Enjoy your day.

  2. Two lovely cards Diane! How organised to immediately use up your snippets :) I adore that little bug especially and the pretty papers you used!

  3. These are two lovely cards. Thanks for the tip how to combine papers. It turned out very well in your cards. The little bug on the seccond card is adorable and it's wings are an eyecatcher.
