Color Challenge

These cards are for yesterdays color challenge on SCS. Can I just say WOW! I loved the combo so much I made 2 cards!!! The colors are Soft Sky, Black and Kraft - or in this case Creamy Caramel because I have NO Kraft!!!

On the Lighthouse card...the images came from PIF - of course! I also used the Sanded SU stamp on the Soft Sky. the inside of the card says..."may your joys be as deep as the ocean, and your sorrows as light as the foam" cool is that? The sentiment comes from Cornish Heritage Farms.

On the other card...I used my Stampscapes stamps, if you don't have any, you should definitely try them out. They stamp beautifully. I think my favorite thing on this card is how I used the photo corners underneath the main image. I didn't want another mat underneath it, so I decided to just emphasize the corners.

Hope you enjoy....have a great day!!!

Landscaping Weekend

Wow, its been a long weekend!!! We had 4 skids of rocks delivered to stack around the pool. When we got the pool, we chose a dark liner - we were going for a "pond" look!! Guess we wanna feel like frogs when we're outside. Anyways.....I think we've accomplished the look we were going for. So the weekend was spent stacking all of these rock. We still have a few holes to fill in, but I think its done for the most part. Enjoy the pictures....

Baby Shower Card

I went to a friends baby shower today. I wanted to get something for her, cause I knew the baby would get a ton of stuff. I was right...the baby got a ton of stuff. I opted for the non-traditional gift for the mom-to-be, and also went for a non-traditional baby card! Oh, by the way, I got her a gift certificate for a pedicure.

The stamp is made by Make an Impression, I used the Geranium image which I picked up at my LSS yesterday. Although it was time consuming, I do like the finished product. I also got a punch to go with it. You stamp the image, then insert the small punched flowers into the actual flower places on the stamp. You push down on the middle of the punched flower on something soft (I used the spongy thing that came with my mat pack), then pick it up with tweezers, dip it in some glue and put it onto the card. Yeh, can you believe I actually did that!!??

Colors on the card are all SU, Old Olive, Real Red, More Mustard and White. I colored it with prismas, and used my Swiss Dot CB folder.

Enjoy, and as always....thanks for stopping by!
