Dynamic Duos #76

IMG_2869


Happy Saturday!

Yesterday we took my son back up to Sudbury after his fall reading week!
We drove him, his roommate and his best friend who was coming to visit for the weekend.
I was not a blubbering mess this time. During this past week I was able to see how he has grown and matured over the past 7 weeks and with a hug, an I love you, a wee bit of a lump in my throat off he went with his friends and a promise to see me when he returns home for Christmas.
It is all good.

Time for a new colour duo at Dynamic Duos.  I can't believe how fast the last 6 month's have gone.  This is the last week for the current Design Team and I have had such a great time working with and getting to know such a talented group of ladies. Thank for Lesley and Anne Marie for the opportunity!

It is a monochromatic week with this fabulous duo:




I used only the two shades of purple on my card finishing it off with a few purple sequins.

Beautifully elegant! I do like the flourish and touch of sparkle with the sequins!

Alanna said...

This is gorgeous Tracey. I love how the flourish is the focal point.

I'm glad you were able to see your son. Sounds like he is doing well.

Beautiful! LOVING the colors and the sequins!!!

Lisa said...

This is so very pretty my friend, love the big flourish! It's never easy to take them back to school, but it does get easier to hold those tears back! Gosh how I remember those days. They do grow and change so quickly. I still can't believe my baby boy is a married "man"!!! Holy smokes!!!

Marybeth said...

You sound just like one of my younger sisters, she always says that! “ Its all good”. Sounds like a nice visit.
Gorgeous card Tracey and love the colors.

Love the gradient of card stock colors! You have used the stamps so superbly, Tracey! Glad to hear that you (and son) are all transitioning well into the changes! That is one big milestone that you should be proud of!!

Greta said...

Love, love, love this card, Tracey--nothing else to say! So glad your son has done well & you can let him go back a bit easier this time.

Colleen said...

Beautiful card and sentiment, Tracey. Life is about changes...right? Hug them when you have them!

So elegant, Tracey ... love the sprinkling of sequins! Your pride in your son shines through your words ... yes, it's all good! Anita :)

So glad you had such a great visit with your son! I'm sure it was beyond bliss to have everyone home. Your card is beautiful. I love Fancy Flourishes!

Happy Dance said...

Gorgeous card, Tracey. I'm not a big purple person, but this is just lovely. The sequins are just the right touch. I turned around (I think it was just last week...lol), and my little baby was grown up, a dr., and now has 4 kids! It's bittersweet. It goes well though; new things to love about those grownup kids. It will get easier, I promise. If you need to talk...Bev

Your card is just gorgeous Tracey! That swirl stamp is one of my very favorites! Glad you had a nice visit with your son. Mine are growing up way too fast. My son is wanting to drive now, and my girl is wearing my clothes and shoes!
