Color Challenge #20

Color Challenge #20 is to use Chocolate chip,Regal Rose, Pink pirouette, Certainly Celery, and Very Vanilla. I just got this stamp set yesterday, and love it! Those little owls just make me laugh! I tried to glitter up the little pink owl, but she lost her cuteness so I just gave her a diamond hat!

Thanks for looking!

Lonesome Road

I am painting again. Here is the first of many to come.

I got carried away with the challenge this time, but I have had so much fun stamping this morning. These are my new fav colors- I could do my whole new house in black, white and green and be so pleased. I cannot get enough of my Justrite monogram! Sorry for the redundancy!
When I first saw the inspiration picture, I went straight to the Kiwi Kiss for the pop of color...

...but the headboard kept jumping out at me with yellow influence...

...and just for a masculine touch, I went with the Bravo Burgundy. This card is very masculine which is hard for me- even though I live with all boys! Maybe my cards are my girly world! ...

And just for a giggle- I changed my mind in the middle of the card- turned it over, and then went back to my original backgound! No sense in wasting paper! I can cut it in half and attach it to new card stock. Once my ideas get flowing I have to take advantage of it or I will forget what I was doing!

Materials used: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Bravo Burgundy card stock, Stazon ink, large Justrite stamp, Lovely as a Tree, various ribbons,

Color Inspiration 19

I really love the colors in this inspiration. Try it along with me- post comments with a link to your project, or join the fun at Check back for my cards.

I have been eyeing the monogram stuff for a long time, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw this Justrite stamp with interchangeable letters. I have had it one day and look what cute things I can make!
I am so thrilled to have this and am already dreaming Christmas gifts!

For Melissa

My friend Melissa had a sweet baby boy yesterday. I stamped this card for her. I love the Just Celebrate set. The card stock is Baja Breeze, Real Red, Barely Banana, and Confetti White.

Workshop cards

Here are some pics of the cards we are making at my workshop tonight. I wanted to use as many new supplies that I had, and I loved the color 'schemes' in the catty. This one is Eastern Eclectic.

and Sweet Bella.
I want to say that there is a good chance that these cards were direct copies of a card I saw somewhere. I feel sure the eclectic and bella are my original designs, but the other I put together so long ago (probably last week!)that I am not sure where I got the inspiration. If it is your card, please let me know and I will give credit where credit is due!
