SU Timeless Talk with Happy Day

Well, I have a little secret to reveal…I thought I might keep it to myself but thought you might find out and think badly of me…so, I will just come right out and tell you. I finished my card for Dynamic Duos # 92 Bold and Cheery Challenge with Midnight Muse and Rose Red, only to find out…I used Primrose Petals!!!


 The really sad part if it is my wonderful upline brought me a piece of Rose Red to our meeting on Sunday because I had mine on order! After stamping my sentiment twice due to smudging, and making up the card, taking multiple photos trying to capture the essence of the colors (the neutral Sahara Sand is so pretty but hard to photograph)…I noticed the piece of Rose Red sitting there patiently waiting to take a part in the card. Needless to say, I am going to pretend I used a color similar because I did not have Rose Red. I must say, during the late night hours that I tend to keep Primrose Petals and Rose Red look pretty close…until you see the Design Team cards with the brighter Rose Red! Anyhow…here ya go…

I also used Narelle’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches # 125 this week to design my card. I just rotated it one turn to the left:)


Thank you, Linda for making me a Princess at Freshly Made Sketches!



  1. Wow, Cindy you had a Caroline-moment! (from two week’s ago). You are right about similar colours being hard to distinguish…I’d just blame it on the lighting. Besides your card is so dang cute! Love that vintage phone stamp and the three-colour sentiment is brilliant (reminds me of the old Laugh-in show with Lillian Tomlin–now THAT is going back a ways…) 😉

  2. I love the crisp, clean look of your card, Cindy! Fantastic use of that ribbon! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  3. Love this card!! I tell you what, I had a piece of Primrose Petals in with my Rose Red and had a hard time figuring out which was Rose Red so I think you are fine!! Love the use of the sentiment and telephone image- so cute!!

  4. Great card Cindy. Love the antique phone and the way you stamped the sentiment in the 3 colors. Rose Red and Primrose Petals are a close match, and I agree with Julie, you are fine. I have a problem with the colors in my photos at times also.

  5. LOL That totally sounds like something I would do. I love how this turned out though! The image and sentiment are so perfect together. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  6. A very dynamic card, Cindy….even if its not the right color “red”…..we crafters understand and may have done the same thing…but haven’t admitted as you have so boldly done!:)
