For You

I am totally digging on this new set. It's beautiful! I saw this "technique" in the new mini catalog, on the King of the Grill set, and thought I had to do it with this Element of Style set.

I'm trying to use my stock of colors that are going to be retired soon. Cameo Coral and Ruby Red are being used on this one. I used them in the watercoloring too...God I love watercoloring! Jade got me hooked on that...thanks, babe!

I'm entering this into the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #56.

Embrace Life

Here's my entry for Color Throwdown 88 and Pals Paper Arts 38.

Ok...so this time I flipped the sketch to the other side because the Embrace Life would have looked weird on the other side...I think.

Once again, one of the colors on CTD was Tangerine Tango and, nope, I still do not have that color...though I will soon. Tee Hee! So, I used Dusty Durango (a color I will truly miss when it is gone) and the brads are Pumpkin Pie. The other two colors are Basic Gray and So Saffron/White.

Hope you like it! I think it could have been better. Oh well, TFL!

Happy Bird-Day!

Stacey's Stamping Stage {Act 26} had some very simple colors for her challenge today. I have not, nor ever wanted to, use my Crushed Curry, but I think it actually looks good with the grays.
I started with the colors from Stacey's Challenge and went on over to Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch 65 for the layout.
I flipped the sketch onto the other side. Not because of any "creative licence" or anything...I just cut the bird a little bit closer to the right by accident...LOL.
The DP is from the Cool Kids Simply Scrappin' kit and I just couldn't forget the stickles for his little party hat! I think this card would be cute for a a kid or an adult. TFL!

3-3-3 challenges in 1

Check it out! I have three challenges on this one little card!

With the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 134, I used the colors from the Color Throwdown 87 (too late to submit...boo hoo) and the Pals Paper Arts Challenge 37 (a theme challenge of flowers) and...Ta-dah!

I'm kind of diggin' this card. I love this stamp set and do not use it nearly enough. So...yeah...there you have it! TFL

Way to go!

Wow...it has been a while since I have stamped. I have had a rough couple of weeks, but I'm back now and ready for action!

Though I have not been stamping, myself, I have been checking out all the challenges and itching to join in. The sketch for this card is the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 63. Though submission is closed...I just had to use it! Karen's sketches are always so clean and crisp.

I'm not late for submitting into the Colour Q Challenge 27. I have never entered a Colour Q challenge before this. When I saw the colors I fell in love. Tangerine Tango (which I don't own, so I used Pumkin Pie), Night of Navy, Tempting Turquoise (I used Bermuda Bay, because I had scraps lying around) and Soft Suede. They are such boy colors. I just love them all together!

So, I hope you like my card. I also hope I get back into the swing of things this week. TFL
