The SUO challenge blog this week is to make a card that's black and white with a POP of some other color.  Classic.  One of my all time favorite color combos is black, white, and a POP of RED.  Not just ANY red, REAL RED.  :) And this die set is still one of my most favorite even after the release of the new catalog, with all that stellar new stuff!  Black and white polka dots are always right, no matter what the occasion.  And can't we all learn from this awesome new sentiment?  Enjoy the little things, because some day you will realize they are the BIG things!!  Happy Tuesday everyone, and Happy Stamping!!~~ Until next time, Karen

The SUO challenge this week is to make a card that features nature and I thought of this new stamp set right away - "Touches of Texture" - I have been wanting to take it out and play with it since the new catalog came out, so this was my chance!!  The only problem is I seem to have contracted another stomach bug, so I had to squeeze this card in inbetween tummy attacks.  It wore me right out.  And what a way to celebrate JULY 4TH, with a tummy flu!! So this shall be short and sweet - Happy 4th to all!!  Until next time,   Karen

The SUO challenge this week is to feature our favorite new dsp's - and I do love this POP OF PINK set - nothing like black and pink together!  I got my inspiration for this card on PINTEREST, I am not sure who made a similar card, but I loved it and decided to try one with these papers.... This is really outside my comfort zone as I'm not a balloon girl...but these papers - I love them!! For the turquoise I used Timeless Textures polka dot stamp on cardstock.  My other all time fav papers are the glittery papers. :) Happy Tuesday everyone!
