CC&S274 Hip Hello


Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Does it feel like Monday to you?  It does to me....and this dreary, damp, no-sunshiney weather is doing a number on me!!!  AND no sun predicted all week!  GAH!  Well, at least the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge has a couple of sunny colors in their fun, interesting  double challenge this week:

I found this lined paper in my DSP stash that pretty much matched Hello Honey, and I stamped flowers from the retired Array of Sunshine directly on to the paper in Tangelo Twist and Going Gray:

I added a double-layer Hip Hello diecut (Poppystamps) in Hello Honey, added a few more leaves on the card base and finished it off with some Tangelo Twist ribbon and Going Gray candy dots:

Oh, and I added a little stitched diecut border at the bottom of my panel!!!  This was an interested color combo to work with, but I enjoyed it!

I have been wanting to post a few pictures of a little event we had at our church a couple weeks ago, but haven't had time! We had a "Daughters of the King" banquet, which is sort of like a mother-daughter banquet, prepared for us by the men of the church, and afterwards, we had a program called "Apron Strings"!  It was given by a set of 85-year-old Mennonite twins named Viola and Verna:

They read us poems and stories about aprons, shared their collection of aprons, and we had been told ahead of time to bring our own aprons to share!  Here are a few of theirs:

The three above were embroidered  gingham (what I might call chicken scratch), but they also had little canvas aprons that were nailbags, and they even had one for children:

They even shared quilts that they made featuring aprons!!

I'll share a few more pics later!  Thanks for popping in and enjoy your day!  Be blessed!

Oh! That was so much fun looking at the aprons...I, too, called it 'chicken scratch' and remembered doing it as a child with Grammy. She taught me so much. Instilled in me my creativity...thanks for sharing this and all your creativity!

What a delightful event!! I love the twins!! I, too remember Chicken Scratch. I did a luncheon cloth for my kitchen table years ago. I'm going to have to see where I put that! lol

LeAnne I adore your yellows, and orange - combine it with that wonderful gray and I'm totally sold!

Love your pretty card. Thanks for sharing the photos of your special event. Love the twins and all the aprons and quilts. I have done some of the "chicken scratching" also, very pretty.

What a lovely sunny card LeAnne on what is a wet and dreary day here too! I love all the little details - not sure I could have produced something so pretty with this colour combo! Love the photos of the twins and their aprons - what a great event! Chicken scratch is a new one on me - I’m off to look that term up! Have a great day! Xx
