Trash Bin?

Okay...so my DH doesn't care for this card at all. I love monochromatic cards personally, and the Thomas Kinkade images are perfect for them (IMHO). So....this was a dud for the DD gallery this month, but if you would like to see what made it in...click here (you must be a fan club member of Splitcoaststampers to view this gallery). Welcome the awesome new "Dirty Girls", and check out the fantastic gallery this month. You won't be disappointed! This is the last time you'll see my creations in this gallery, tho. :( Can you believe six months can go by so quickly?? Well...maybe I'll be able to keep up with my blog a bit more, and my blurfing that I'm so addicted to as well. *wink*

Stamps: It Doesn't Get Much Better (Thomas Kinkade Collection/Cornish Heritage Farms, Montana Tree Bark (Cornish Heritage Farms), Adorable (CTMH)
Card Stock: Close to Cocoa, Vanilla
Ink: Adirondack Espresso, Chocolate Chip Craft
Accessories: Twill Tape, Antique Brass Hodgepodge, Small Oval Punch


As always, thanks for visiting!!

Hey Rose Ann~ I personally LOVE your card and my hubby would too! I like the monochromatic look as well. I'm sorry to hear that your gig over on the Dirt Pile has come to an end. I will miss seeing your beautiful creations on the Fan Club Gallery. Keep 'em coming on your blog because I sure do enjoy visiting here! ;-)

Have a great day!
Wendy

Libby Hickson said...

Oh what do DHs know anyway!? And wow I can't believe it's 6 months already!!

Donna said...

I think it's great, except maybe the twill ribbon is a bit too stark against the darker colors? Maybe without it, it would look just right!

Beth said...

I think this is wonderful! The image is stamped beautifully and that is not easy feat with the TK stamps! Can't believe it's been 6 months already! You certainly did a wonderful job and I can't wait to see what else you have to share with us on your blog! Take care!

Alexandra said...

Oh, what do men know anyway??!! I LOVE this card, it is absolutely gorgeous Rose Ann! These stamps seem hard to work with, but you pulled it off beautifully! Sorry to hear your stint with the dirty dozen is over - I have enjoyed them over there as well! (Yep, I am a fan club member, teehee!)

IF you're going to be sending this card to the trash just divert it to me!!!! This card is awesome!

Melissa said...

I have to agree w/ everyone else - I think the TK images are perfect for monochromatic cards too!

Is it alright if we all start calling your husband Mr. Rose Ann???! Hahahaha! Makes me chuckle just thinking about it! :)

Many Blessings,

I really, really like it!! It's funny which cards really appeal to our husbands. Mine likes the really bright ones that make me shudder. :) TFS!!

Sorry your 6 month stint as a dirty girl is up already! But I am selfishly glad that you will have more time to share on your blog!
Big cyber hugs.

Men! I like the monochromaticness (is that a word?) of the card...it gives it a bit of a vintage feel.

Leslie Miller said...

So your husband didn't like this card...? Looks like bliss to me. I love it! But, like you, I love the monochromatic TK images. It's beautiful, Rose Ann. The background and colors are perfect for it. Gosh, I forgot about the new DD Gallery opening. Dang, I'll have to go take a look. Thanks for the reminder! I know you'll enjoy more time for other things now that you're done. I think everyone finds it a bit of a relief. The DD is a lot of work! Congratulations on a job well done!

Doris said...

Love this card, except that I think the ribbon takes away from the simplicity of the image. Sometimes I find myself trying TOO hard to embellish something simple!

Marlou said...

I think this is a beautiful card Rose Ann!!!! as all your other lovely cards are too :) x

Rochelle W said...

I think the card is very pretty. I love it!
