Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #222 & SU Only Challenge #55

Hey Everyone

I’ve had a productive card making day today, oh and I cleaned the house as well.  I know which one I prefer to be doing!  Don’t you just love it when you actually feel like you’ve accomplished something?

The Design Team at Create with Connie & Mary have a colour challenge this week.  I have to admit these colours threw me as they are not normally colours I would put together. Summer Starfruit is a colour I’ve used a bit lately, but teaming it with Chocolate Chip and Gumball Green had me thinking….

I’ve teamed the colour challenge with the challenge at SU Only Challenges where their challenge is to create a project using texture.  This I was able to do.

Here’s my card:

And a close up of the main panel so you can see the texture I added to each square by embossing them each with a different embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by.

Whoops!

Hey Everyone

Well in my excitement of my first post as a JAI Design Team Member I buggered up my scheduled post and it came on during the night one day early.  I’m sooooo blonde, but I promise to get it right next time! It will go live tomorrow hopefully, if I don’t bugger it up again.

Thanks for the heads up Bronwyn!

Lionel & Guy

Hey Everyone

You know when you plan a night out, and you’re not really that keen on going, you always end up having a great time?  It happened to me when my husband and I went to see Lionel Ritchie on Wednesday night.  I told everyone at work that I was going to see Guy Sebastian (he was Lionel’s support act) because I am not the biggest Lionel fan at all. I also think Guy got quite hot when he got tatts!  We had 2nd row seats and it was absolutely fantastic!  I don’t know if that’s what made the concert so good, but seeing them perform up close was the best.

Guy was amazing and when he sang Amazing Grace, I almost had a tear in my eye – they had a slide show of all the disasters that have happened around the world and it was quite moving.

See how close we were? He had everyone up and dancing.

This was one of my favourite moments.  There was a girl in the audience with Down’s Syndrome.  He spotted her and walked in her direction.  She had her hand out to him and he reached out and touched her.  She was sooo excited and the whole stadium went wild.  She jumped up and down for about 5 minutes afterwards because she just couldn’t believe it.  It was really nice to see and it showed how genuine he is.  This photo was taken was when he went back in her direction and she tried to take a photo.  He posed for her – even though it took ages for her to take the photo!

Guy came back out and they sang a song together.

Fantastic night out! Such entertainers!

See ya
