I've got Core'dination...

Yes I have ..really!
Core'dination cardstock that is....
I just loved the white, so clean, so fresh, so I went ahead and bought a pad of the Whitewash cardstock, but couldn't bring myself to break into it... that was until today... when I saw the challenge over at Caardvarks
Then I couldn't stop at just one card - I had to make two..


First a monochromatic (per the challenge) and then on to a sweet little vintage card  - see how versatile this lovely stuff is?


Here's my first card........



It was quite a decision which colour to go for, but I love this aqua and yup! one of my handmade vellum roses again. Leaves - courtesy of Mel . Of course I was thinking of my son when I made this hence the 'Miss You' ... hopefully he will be able to fly home soon.

And here's my little vintage card...



Just before I go I have to say a big "Thank You" to those lovely girls over at City Crafter Challenge -
They each left a lovely comment on my blog and I can't tell you how good that made me feel after my not so good day.... To think that complete strangers took the trouble to care, well, it touched my heart ...

I hope you all have a great day
