Merry Monday #48

Hmmm, well, that took longer than expected:(  But here I am with another blog challenge card.  This card is for Merry Monday #48.  This week they have a color challenge:

Half-fold Card2I wasn’t sure I could pull off these colors, but I think it turned out okay:)  I used all Stampin’ Up! supplies.  I love the little Mitten Builder Punch!  I hope they continue it into the new catalog!  I saw a similar layout on Spitcoaststampers, I think.  I changed it up a little, but overall it’s pretty much the same.  I don’t remember whose design I CASED, but if you see this, please let me know:)

If you have questions about supplies or technique, please feel free to ask!

Thanks for coming back by! 🙂  I’m always happy to have visitors!  See you again:)

Friday Mashup #95

I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long:(  I wish I could say I was all moved in and done unpacking, but that’s not the case:(  Having an almost 2 year old toddler keeps me pretty busy most of the day!

Anyway…..I have a card for you today and another one will be posted tomorrow.  That’s the plan anyway;)

For today, I have a card for the Friday Mashup #95.   Hop over there and take a peek at the other cards posted:)

So here is the “Mashup” Challenge:
  1. Make a project with the colors “Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive“.
  2. Or Make a project “Creating your own Sentiment (No Stamps, Stickers, Chipboard etc.).
  3. Or “Mash it Up” and create a project “With your own Sentiment using the Colors above”

I like to make my own sentiments, but today I haven’t added one yet.  I’m not sure who will get it yet;)  So here is my card:

Half-fold Card1Looks pretty simple?  Well, it would have been if I didn’t make my own Daffodil dotted paper!  I’m still learning about My Digital Studio, so I opened Daffodil Delight in Print Shop.  I cropped a circle, made it small and duplicated it into a row.  Then I duped more rows until I felt I had enough for my project.  I think it adds a nice cheerful look:)

Thanks for coming by today, and for those of you who are following me, I really appreciate it!  See you soon:)
