donut worry...be happy




I love living in Washington State.

The one drawback is the lack of natural sunlight.  There's a small window of prime photography time and quite frankly, I was napping during that time...LOL.  Forgive my photography, I will replace it but will be out most of today. 

I couldn't wait to play with my new Reverse Confetti goodies:

cardstock:  recollections/white, stampin' up/crisp cantaloupe/coastal cabana & daffodil delight  paper:  stampin' up designer paper from retired kit stamps:  reverse confetti/donut you know  ink:  zing/white  other:  kraft colored wool felt, reverse confetti donut you know/triple chevies confetti cuts, papertrey ink vellum

Edited to add new photo:



I love this color trio:


Almost kind of unexpected this time of year, eh?

So fun & refreshing!

The donut has been die cut with kraft colored italian wool...so luxurious!

A delicious, yummy card in every way! Donut delightful. I hear you about the lighting; I have 'this much' daylight, and unfortunately, by the time I'm home from work, it's gone. That's why my posting is even more erratic than usual! Oh well...the days will start getting longer soon *grin*

Yuki said...

Oh my, that sentiment is just too cute hehe. Love the colors and CAS design. And I feel you about the lighting issue... I'm so spoiled living in Los Angeles but last week it was actually overcast. And while I LOVE the Fall weather, it makes it harder to get a decent photo.
