KEEP IT SIMPLE!!


The SUO blog challenge for today is CLEAN and SIMPLE.  I'm CLEAN AND SIMPLE challenged.  I was pretty happy with this card, but I would have loved it if someone else made it, know what I mean?  Ever make a card that's just not you, but you know if someone else made it you would say I really like that! What's up with that?? The colors for the SCS color challenge this week are Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Lost Lagoon.  I made this card first….and kept it simple.  NO coloring, so sad.  I liked it, but I had to go on and color another one for the color challenge. :) So down here below the writing is the one I made for the color challenge.  

This card is a me card.  I love this card.  I absolutely love these three colors together.  Lost Lagoon is such an awesome new color.  I used the Calypso Coral blendabilities and the Old Olive as well.  For the Lost Lagoon flowers I stamped them right on the card stock and shaded with a q-tip and the stamp pad.  Cut them out, raised them up. :) SUCH FUN COLORS, they kind of sing to me. :) We are in the midst of getting our house ready to sell.  We are going to put it on the market and buy a ranch and have my mom move in with us.  Such a bittersweet move.  I love my house, I always have and always will.  But I think when you do the thing you know you are supposed to do, God will bless that with another house I will love, and we will be blessed in new ways! :) All that to say there isn't much time for stamping lately.  But this too shall pass.  Maybe God will give me a bigger stamp room.  haha.  I can dream, right?  :) okay, Happy Stamping everyone! Until next time, Karen
