saturday special on sunday - june 23/24

So it's Sunday afternoon and I am just sending out this week's saturday special.

On Sunday.

I blame a crazy week, a three-day heatwave, a dead modem and prepping for a fantastic crop on Saturday. It's summer so I say no worries!

The blogs were full of great ideas and here a few that I had to share with you.

1. Don't you just love this wedding anniversary card that Natasha Naranjo Aguirre made for Donna Salazar and her hubby Danny? I love how it has both girlie and masculine elements.

2. Nathalie Kelbach says that colours are my friends. With this post, she's pretty close to convincing me. Her series of colour theories is super cool and worth a read. Love the colour palette she used on this layout.

3. Swoon! I love this heart.

5. May Flaum teaches us how to layer inks -- specifically, archival ink, two distress inks and dylusions -- on glossy cardstock. Great video tutorial (I love her inky fingers!).

8. It's twine time at My Mind's Eye! And high time, I say!! Check out this amazing layout by Anam Stubbington. I love the great title made of twine wrapped around wire and the heart. Wow!!!!
