CTD145 & Mojo194


I just LOVED the colors that Carole chose for today’s Color Throwdown!  What do you think?

swatch 145

They were perfect for the Mojo Monday sketch this week, too:


I resisted the urge to choose a plethora of patterns and went with all polka dots:


I’m highlighting a retiring set, Funky Four, as well as a retiring wheel, Cornelli Lace (insert really sad face here).   I just got the Funky Four set and haven’t really had a chance to play with it too much.   I like the bold graphics that this little leaf has, so I chose to stamp it in all three CTD colors!


I also used the new Triple Layer Blossom Punch to make some scallops for my panels:


I just wish I had the guts to try to sew around those little scallops---I was just too chicken!! LOL!  Sewing on the strips was enough for me! 

So I hope you’ll play along with the Color Throwdown girls---scoot on over to the blog to see their creations this week, or just check them out right here:


Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Oh the hot weather can be so boring. Cassidy looks like she is sick of the heat.OR having her picture taken Or she is wondering what Grandma has for her to play with. She is so cute.
    How did you make those scallops? They are so cool.

  2. Love your card! Awesome colors! :)

  3. Gorgeous - I love the color and sketch combo! Hope you are holding up okay with that heat back there!

  4. This card is just dreamy with those summery colors and beautiful stitching! I was playing with those awesome punches last week and they're SO cool!! Little Cass looks so melancholy today......I'll bet she's thinking she'd love to have an ice cold popsicle to cool down on this hot day :)

  5. Great card! I am lovin' the mojo sketch! love the bottom with the doily like edging! Oh, and that Cassidy...I think it's against the law to get cuter everyday, just sayin'!

  6. Love it! Great use of the colours and the Mojo sketch.

  11. Your card is gorgeous - I love the layers of the scallops along the bottom - that bit of "lace" peaking from behind the circle!

  12. So sharp looking LeAnne...those colors really look great with the white. Love the punch along bottom of each row...a great detail!

  13. LeAnne! I was so awesome to have you with us this week. I love that you went with all polka dots for the strips of paper in the sketch. I brings color but uniformity so it's really pleasing to the eye. This is so great!

  14. Mmmmmmmm, mmmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm! POSITIVELY radiant work! Oh, those COLORS! Yeahooooo! What a WONDERFUL card! I love every choice you made here! Beautiful work....

    But I have to tell you... this picture of THAT little girl, may be my favorite of ALL times! SHE.... needs me to squeeze her, sooooo bad! I would NEVER get a single thing done with her in my house. I can barely turn away from her adorableness on the screen! GREAT photo, my dear! GOSH, she is BREATH TAKING! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy, ENJOY!!!!! Take a breath, then ENJOY some MORE!

  15. Beautiful, just beautiful!!! Love how you used the colors with the sketch! And Cassidy looks just like YOU in that last picture!!

  16. I love your use of the colors and sketch together! Those tiny scalloped borders are so cute and your stitching is awesome!
