Happy weekend to you all! 

Time for a new CR84FN color challenge and these colors are AMAZING! I just LOVE them :)

This is a combo you could use any time of year. Truly. Summer, fall…even Christmas time. Seriously fantastic, non-traditional Christmas colors. Wait, I'm talking about Christmas…already! Never to early to start thinking about it I guess ;)

Here's my take on these delicious colors.

I have been getting good milage out of the Mat Stack 3 die (from Papertrey Ink) lately. I can't seem to put it down. Just one of those things, and I'll run with it :)

Check out all the gorgeous DT samples over at the CR84FN blog, including our guest designer for the month, Monika.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Just Us Girls #146: Color Challenge

Hi all. Yep it's me. Really me.

I know…tumbleweeds have been rolling through over here on the ol' blog. I'll spare you all the details but suffice it to say life is happening :) I am really happy to report that at least there's no drama, just busy, busy, busy.

On to this weeks JUGS challenge!

Here's my take on the colors...

I love me some sunflowers! My background looks more green than it does in real life - it may not be cyan exactly but I swear it is more blue than the picture suggests.

I hope you find time to play along! Make sure to swing by the JUGS blog to see what the lovely JUGheads have whipped up :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

How about these vibrant, gorgeous colors from CR84FN?!?!

So rich and lively!

We also have a new guest designer for the month of July over at CR84FN - we are so lucky to have the lovely Monika Davis share her creative talents with us this month! Welcome Monika!!!

For my card, I die cut scallops from thin printer paper. I used the scallops as a mask and sponged yellow and red distress ink around the scallops. Then I stamped a flower from yellow felt and added some twine. I think the colors are sort of uplifting :)

Hope you'll swing by the CR84FN blog to check out the fantastic samples by the talented DT!

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Just Us Girls #144: Sketch Challenge

Hello folks! Quick post today - we are in the midst of our 10 year college reunion! *Gulp* So much fun though - great to see familiar faces and catch up :)

It's that time of the week - Just Us Girls Challenge time! Our fabulously talented and super sweet Lynn has come up with this amazing sketch.

Before I get to my card, we have some exciting news!!! We are so incredibly lucky to have Marisa  joining us at JUGS as a Design Team Member!!! YAY!!! Welcome Marisa! She is so amazingly talented - SCORE for JUGS!!! Make sure you swing by and give her a huge welcome :)

We also have a brand new guest designer for July. Welcome Esther!! We are so glad you could join us and share your creative talents!

On to my card. I decided to go with the "Christmas in July" theme :) I know, early for the holidays but I just had the idea in my head and had to run with it.

That's it for me! Off to join a few fellow classmates for lunch, then a party at the beach and a going away party for a coworker tonight. Whew!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
