BUTTERNUTSAGE CONTEST


One of my favourite blogs out there in cyber space has to be Donna's over at Butternut Sage Designs, and I promise I am not just saying that because she is running this fabulous contest to win $100 shmakaroo's! This is one of the coolest candy's out there as she has asked us to try to capture "her style" in something we make. It is pretty tough to decipher one's "style" but when I really break down what I like about Donna's work I think it boils down to
a) Her great use of neutral colours or monochromatic colour themes
b) Simple designs using clean lines
c) Texture, texture, texture
d) Her ability to create & inspire
So I have tried to emulate her "style", inadequately I am sure, with a neutral colour combo, a dash of dry embossing and a tribute to her passion for creativity and inspiring others in my sentiment. I would also like to mention that I really appreciate the number of personal emails Donna has sent to me in response to comments I have left on her blog. It is so nice to be acknowledged and they always leave a big ol' smile on my face. Thanks Donna, for a great contest, for your truly inspiring work that you so happily share with others, and your kind nature which shines through in each and every post :)
