As the Workshop Twists and Turns......


The title of this posting reflects the creative process today which resulted in this card. This card, made with CHF's fabulous tree image, is so totally different from what was planned. That doesn't mean I'm not happy with it....just that it is not what I intended......but I guess that is normal for me....lol!

In real life, the sky behind the tree is much more rich and RED.....I just could not get a photograph with the same depth of color as the card itself. The colors we had to use in the SCS Color Challenge were kraft, real red, summer sun, and black. I did doe some CB'ing on the red background but it doesn't show too much in this picture. This is a totally legal card....for a change!

We were on the cool side today, but we have had quite a bit of sun. The daffodils are pushing several inches out of the ground, so summer MUST be on its way!!!! Today I finally went out and took the last vestiges of winter decorations down from the side fence gates. Now it is time for flowers and bright green leaves.......right, Mother Nature??????

Have a great rest of your day!
