August 18, 2010

I hope to start posting much more regularly so I decided to title with dates. Otherwise, I waste time trying to come up with a "clever" title (term used loosely!!). The cards I am posting today are more challenge-responses! I've found even one more blog with challenges.... as if I needed more. :)

Last night I found Stampin' Royalty and their great color challenge this week. Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Not Quite Navy and Old Olive - a fabulous combination! I think I will tuck this combo away for future use. AND I actually found another SplitCoast challenge forum: Free 4 All. This weeks challenge was to make and give a "Get Well" card. My mom has been fighting a cold the last few days, so I made this for her and Adam and I took it over to her with a packet of Peach Tea.
Stamp Sets: Punched Posies (flower and the dots on the twill tape), Wellness Wishes, Texture wheel
Ink: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy
Paper: Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Not Quite Navy DSP (retired) and textured, Old Olive DSP (retired) and textured, Cherry Cobbler

Then I made my way over to the Diva Coffee Break site for Design Challenge #190. The colors are Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. I came up with this:
