A {Peek} at My Weekend's Projects...

Our weekend was a busy one, but here's what I was able to create during the wee early morning hours (insomnia has its bennies!):
A flower for a fabric-inspired project, using the soon-to-be retired 5-Petal Flower.  I paired Very Vanilla (I love the cleanliness of muslin slipcovers, etc) with Baja Breeze.
Charming, another set that retires on May 31, includes a lovely stamp of script, including the words "inspire," "create," and "share."  I'll be sad to retire that set...
This sentiment, stamped on Tangerine Tango card stock, is from Crazy for Cupcakes, which retires on May 31. 
Of all the projects I completed this weekend, this is among my favorites.  It's a versatile design, which you'll see later this week.  It was for a Color Scheme challenge, for which I used Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Regal Rose and Crumb Cake.
Our niece celebrates her first birthday on Saturday, so I used the set, Look Who's Turning, to create a first birthday card for her.  This set and the Big Shot Texturz Plates Backgrounds 1, (which gave me the embossing on the card body) retire this month, too!
The "hello" from Tiny Teacup (another retiree) was used for the sentiment of this card...

This card was created for a challenge in which I was to use multiple sentiments...  The large one in the background is from the retiring set (one of my go-to sets), Sincere Salutations.  One can never have too many notes to say "Thank you!"

My Color Coach was my constant companion this weekend, as I tried out new color combinations.  Admittedly, some are different and some are ones I'll only use once.  I did find a few new favorites, though, and I am grateful to have it to lean on.

I appreciate your visit and I invite you back this week as I write about each of these in turn...
