CCEE1635, Bokeh Background


Lois here -- I'm the hostess for September.  I thought we could start off the month with a Technique Challenge.  A simple background technique that I love is Bokeh Background.  Here is the tutorial from the Resources section of Splitcoaststampers - http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/bokehbackground/

CCEE1634 Herbs


According to Liz's research, it is More Herbs, Less Salt Day!! Herbs and plants add so much to our lives, so in honor of this unusual day, make a card with an herb or plant on it. I know we have lots of followers who love gardening, so any of these images would work great. You might even want to add colors that are named after herbs and plants: sage, thyme, lavender, cinnamon, nutmeg, mint, celery, olive, or cocoa, as well as all those you can think of. Have fun with it.

You can post your card with your comments, or you can post it to SCS using CCEE1634 as your keyword.

(as an added bonus I added the scent of rosemary essential oil to the inside of my card)
