R.I.P Alexander McQueen!!

Before I had a glimmer of creating cards, I went to fashion design school, and Alexander McQueen was one of my favorite designers along with all the other greats. My prayers are with his family and friends... the fashion industry just lost a great creator!

So in memory of this fabulous designer I wanted to make a card using one of his designs for a color sketch, along with this weeks mojo card sketch.

I thought this was a great way to pay tribute to his work. He's a bit eccentric for most people, but you have to love the colors and concepts he put together.

Engagement card

Hello everyone, one day away from the weekend..woohoo! So I was thinking about how many engagements usually resort from Valentine's Day so I thought I'd create a simple elegant one with the the following challenges:

The sketch challenge comes from Clean & Simple stamping  and the color challenge comes from the Color Dare blog Two great blogs I ran into while on splitcoast, check them out.... very fun site.

Pretty simple, huh? I used the SU! Together forever set for the flower image and the sentiment. The dsp was from SU! Walk in the park. I hope you like. Thanks for visiting.
