Reverse Confetti July Color Challenge and The Cutting Edge Challenge #5

A card for the July Reverse Confetti Color Challenge and the Cutting Edge Challenge #5!




I absolutely love this colour combination.  I am really excited to share my new friend with you, I think that IT going to be a bestie! My tripod!  We have had our tripod as long as the camera, maybe longer. My father in law passed it on to us and I have never taken the time to learn how to use it.  I hear all the time what a difference it makes.  Although I don't think my photos were horrible, what they lacked was clarity. I am going to have to continue to work with it, but I think I am on to something.

What do you think, do you use a tripod?

I am also submitting this to The Cutting Edge Challenge #5.  I was drawn to the summertime theme of Melania's card and her fresh and clean card design--lots of white space.

On the weekend my husband and I tried out our new Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker. He has wanted it for some time and when I saw it on sale last week for a great price I decided to pick it up.  Definitely going to be some fun!  Here is our first attempt at Margarittas, just traditional lime this time--Yum!

Very cute card. Love that flamingo and those colors are so very yummy. Now, I see why you were so busy last weekend. Great new toy. No, I do not have a tripod. Another thing to put on my wish list, I guess.

YUM...that is all.

Tracey, how totally amazing your flamingo card is; in fact, it's causing me to swoon, which is pretty impressive given that typically it's butterflies who cause that response! The die cuts you've combined make for one yummy, CAS, crisp, fabulous car! Love that bit of glitter around the lime! Ultra amazing, my friend! Your margarita concoction maker looks mighty delicious, too. I'm not much for margaritas (I might be convinced if you made me one *grin*), but a glass of red wine...happy sighhh... Another visit that has me smiling!
Hugs~c
