Why Am I Up At This Hour??

Have you ever been woken up abruptly and couldn't go back to sleep, from a storm, noise, etc.?  This happened to me this morning.  I heard the sound of broken glass and then the vacuum at 12:30am.  My husband was turning the lamp off and broke a glass container sitting on the table with a flame less candle in it.  UGH!  I don't know why I told you that.  I guess because it's on my mind since I'm typing this at 3am.

Do you like black and white?  Seems a lot of people do.  The color combo is so popular for many reasons.  It is perceived as being classy, modern, contemporary, etc.  I'm going to show you a few cards that I've made in the black and white colors.  I hope you like them.

This is the corner floral silhouette from Hero Arts.  Very clean and simple but fresh and beautiful.

This is a dragonfly from Stampabilities with a Swiss Dot embossed bottom half.  

Here's the same dragonfly from Stampabilities.  I embossed it in black all over the card for interest. 

Here's a close up of the embossed dragonflies: 

This is a different take on an Easter card.  I think it's cute, modern and classy.  
The Cross is from Stampin' Up. 

Well that's some examples of cards made in the ever popular black and white color combos.  
I think I'll go take a nap and then make some cards.  More later....

Thanks for stopping by ~ ~ ~
