A Great Color Combo!

Good Morning Ladies!

Well today Zoie is one year old!  I cannot believe it has been a year since that cute little bundle of joy came into the world!  I will take some pictures of her party today and share them tomorrow.

My card today was the result of my playing with colors.  I saw a challenge on another blog and I loved the colors so I decided to play with my version of a color combo.  I began with Concord Crush and added Wisteria Wonder.  I wanted to add a pink so I chose Pink Pirouette.  And naturally it needed a yellow so So Saffron was the perfect fit.  I then just needed a green so I used Wild Wasabi.  Here is my card I created using those colors.

I hope you like my card as much as I do.  If you have this set you should pull it out and play with your own color combo.  It is a lot of fun!  Thanks for looking and have a Super Saturday!

Sketch Frenzy Friday - Bright Blossoms

Happy Friday Everyone!

Are you ready for your sketch this week?  The Sketch Frenzy Friday group take turns designing a sketch for us to use each week.   This one was created by Tammy Fite.












This was a fun and different sketch.  I used some of the Everyday Enchantment designer series paper that retires after today.  I will miss this paper as I loved it.  Here is my interpretation of the sketch.

Now it is time to hop on over to Sharon Wheet's blog to see what she did with the sketch.  Thanks for looking and have a Fabulous Friday!

Sneek Peak at Summer Smooches Special

Hello Stampers!

I spent a lot of time in my stamp room yesterday to get ahead on my posts.  Zoie's birthday is Saturday so I am headed to Jess' for the weekend so I wanted to have cards to post.

The first card I worked on yesterday was one for the sketch challenge at The Paper Players    














I got some new of the Summer Smooches special that begins on April 1.  I decided to use them for the sketch.  Here is my interpretation.

Mixed Bunch in Poppy

Happy Wednesday Stampers!

I played some last night with the sketch challenge at Red Hot Stampers Sketch Challenges 
















 This was a fun sketch and I took advantage to use up some of my soon to be retired paper.  Here is my interpretation of the sketch.

Since I have so much ds paper I decided to line the inside of the envelope with the same striped paper.  I think I will be doing this some more so that I can use up some of my paper.  Thanks for looking and have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Hand Stamped Sentiments - Easter

Good Morning!

Wow where did yesterday go?  Too much going on!

We have a great challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.  With Easter being a few weeks away we thought we would give you some ideas.


    







I pulled out my Sweet Floral stamp for this card and instead of using it as a background I used it as the main image.  I colored it with markers so that I could use 2 different colors of pink and green to give it some depth.  I like how pretty this card looks.  Here is my creation.

Make sure you head on over the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to see what the other members of the design team created for the challenge.  Thanks for looking and have a Terrific Tuesday!

Late Night Stampers - texture

Happy Monday Everyone!

I cannot believe that Easter is only 2 weeks away!  It just seems like yesterday we were celebrating Christmas.  I guess time flies when you are so busy you don't know whether you are coming or going!  :)

My card today is for the Late Night Stampers challenge to add texture.  I love adding texture so I had fun with this one.  I went with a classic color scheme and a simple layout.  Here is what I created.

Isn't this just a classic card!  I love this color combo.  Hope you enjoyed my card today.  Thanks for looking and have a Marvelous Monday!

Morning Chat Challenge - Easter

Happy Sunday Stampers!

I had a great day with my girls out shopping.  We got some new summer outfits for Zoie since her birthday is next weekend.  I cannot believe she will be 1 next Saturday!  Where has the year gone?

My card today is for the Easter Challenge at Butternut Sage Designs.  Our Morning Chat Challenge this time was to create an Easter card.  This was a challenge for me as I only have 1 current Easter wheel.  I had used the wheel before so I did not want to use it again.  I saw a cute treat holder on Late Night Stampers and decided to modify it into a card.  I love how it turned out and will be sending it to Zoie for Easter.  Here is my creation.

I hope you liked my card today.  It is so much fun to make.  Make sure you check out the other ladies cards in our challenge.  Thanks for looking and have a Sensational Sunday!

Paisley Petal Just Believe

Good Morning Everyone!

Well we are in for a few days of cooler temperatures.  Since we have been so much warmer than normal I won't mind.  I am just wondering if we will be hot, hot, hot this summer.

My card today uses the challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations.
















 You were to use the sketch and designer series paper.  I have a lot of the Paisley Petals paper so I pulled that one out to use for my card.  Here is what I created.

I will be running errands today with Jess and Zoie and then we will be working on decor items for Zoie's birthday party next week.  Thanks for looking and have a Super Saturday!

Sketch Frenzy Friday -

Happy Friday Everyone!

It is time for another sketch challenge.  Over at the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog we have a great sketch created by Patrice.















 I decided to use some of my soon to be retiring In Color paper and cardstock.  Poppy Parade is not a color I use very often.  I decided to use the Fancy Flower punch as well as the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  My card is on a So Saffron base but my pictures does not show it.  Here is my creation.


 inside of card and envelope

















This is a fun bright card for the beginning of Spring.  Pull out some bright colors and join us with our sketch challenge.  Now it is time to head on over to Sharon Wheet's blog to see what she did with the sketch this week.

Thanks for looking and have a Fabulous Friday!
