A Bootiful Box


Hi Everyone! I have a really fast post this afternoon. I thought I would share one of the club projects that the ladies made over the past weekend. Here is our Bootiful box -
 
 
A few weeks back I posted a card that was made with the same elements, so we made both the card and the box. Needless to say they were quite pleased. :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Another Color Me


Hello Everyone! I have a quick post for you this evening.... Today, after a really busy weekend with my club girls, I found myself in the need for a few sympathy cards to get in the mail this week. :( I decided to take a look at the Color me Beautiful challenge for inspiration and went from there. This weeks colors were, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Perfect Plum, and Basic Gray. Here is my submission for this weeks challenge -
 
 
I think these colors lent themselves to my need really. :) I subbed Elegant Eggplant for the circle that made my tree. I realized that I do not have ANY full sheets of Perfect Plum card stock or DSP. I guess I will need to remedy that soon, considering I really like this card and combo, and would love to have a few on hand if the occasion arises. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Balance




 
Hi Everyone! I just wanted to pop in and let you all know what's up.. I hate leaving you all in the lurch. I am sorry that I haven't been posting regularly, but I needed to take some time to myself and try to find some balance. Since my back surgery, I have to admit, though hard, I am not where I need to be physically yet. What do the doctors say... More physical therapy and exercise. So I chose the later, it costs less, and brings peace of mind. Now, my mornings and some afternoons are busy on the bike trails either riding or walking.  The weather is slowly getting cooler, and it is wonderful to get to breathe the fresh air, and take in the scenery -
 
 
I hope you all understand and have balance in your lives too! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Mixing old and new

 
Hi Everyone! I decided to take some time this morning and get to some stuff that I didn't get to last week, and to my delight, I finished quicker than expected. :) So why not play in the basement while in between loads of never ending laundry. I of course ;) checked out today's Color challenge on Splitcoast. I am weak, I tell ya, just plain weak for color challenges. Today's colors were Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze, and Pumpkin Pie..and the desert option was to make a Thanksgiving card, or just a thank you. Easy peasy... Here is my submission for today's challenge -
 
 
I used the set Moving Forward and decided to mix it with a sentiment from the retired set Loads of Love Accessories. I will never, ever part with that set. I Just Love it! Did you notice the lighter blue panel paired with the Midnight Muse DSP? It is the retired color Bordering Blue, and matches exactly to the polka dot in the DSP! How Cool is that?? :)  I made the pumpkin in the bicycle basket using the Sm oval punch. OK, gotta run! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Stay for a while

Hi Everyone!! Been a busy little bee this past week and weekend. :) I needed to take care of a sewing project for my niece, and that took longer than expected. But I do have a card to share today. After a LONG weekend, I played along in this weeks Color Me Beautiful challenge again. I really love that they post the challenge on a Friday.. It lets me think about the colors for a few days, and allows me to take my time to get some ideas going in my brain. :) OK, here are this weeks colors
 
I tried to incorporate all the colors again this week, and this is what I came up with -
 
 
 
I used the set Tea Shoppe. :) I am an avid tea drinker, so getting this set was a real no brainer. :) I think it turned out sweet in these colors too. Hope you think so too. :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Color me


Hi Everyone! It's Tuesday, and that means a color challenge card from me right?? Well, I do have a color challenge card for you, but it is not my usual Splitcoaststampers challenge. I found a brand new color challenge blog called Color me Beautiful. It is brand new, and this week is the very first challenge. Here are the colors for this weeks challenge -
 
Lots to work with... :) We need to chose at least three of the colors in the palette to use on our project. I chose to use them all for my card. I consider using ANY color of purple a real challenge, so I really wanted to challenge myself. :) Here is my submission -
 
 
 
I stamped my image from Fast and Fabulous with Stazon onto watercolor paper, and then colored the blooms with Perfect plum, Rich Razzleberry, and Lucky Limeade. The shaded area behind the blooms is actually Wisteria Wonder. My sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray, and added a Basic Gray satin ribbon to complete my card. :) I love these colors together, and can't wait to see what is going to be next. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
