I also wanted to do the ATC challenge on Verve's blog, so I decided to combine them along with highlighting the 2008 In Colors which will retire in 1 month (did I say that before!). So you can say I am stamping 3 birds with one project (hahahah, so funny that play on words). Okay enough with the silliness, here is my ATC.
Stamps: Grasshopper Fluffles (Stampendous) Paper: Groovy Guava, white, Wild Wasabi Ink: Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, Groovy Guava, More Mustard, Purely Pomegranate, Summer Sun Wild Wasabi Accessories: ribbon (Michael's), button, Embossed Zig-Zag edge punch (Martha Stewart), aquapainter, dimensionals, sticky tape
So what do you think of this stamp, isn't he just the cutest? I can't wait to see what I get back. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

The card I made today is to go with the VerveDivaChallenge. This was an inspiration challenge and I just had to play along as I was really attracted to the colors in the piece. See if you are also and then use the colors to create your own card. Here is the inspiration piece and my card.

I know you are looking for a color challenge today but I did not get time to play yesterday with the colors we had picked out so I am posting a card I did for a challenge. I will use the color challenge colors or a card later this week so you can still see my combination.
OurCreativeCorner had a design team challenge to use Nestabilities last week. It had been a while since I had used mine so I decided to pull out my Cuttlebug and give it a try. Here is my card and the details.
Stamps: Best Blossoms (retired) Paper: Close to Cocoa, Perfect Plum, Sage Shadow, white Ink: Perfect Plu, Sage Shadow Accessories: Square Nestabilities, Stripes GooseBumpz embossing folder (QuicKutz), dew drops, raffia, dauber, dimensionals
So what do you think? Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Candice (who has been missing in action since the beginning of June - love you Candice :) - has had so much going on in her life this summer) and I decided we would use the In Colors in our color challenges the last few weeks as a fond farewell. Last week I used Groovy Guava, Blue Bayou, and Wild Wasabi. I had wanted to use the final 3 colors this week but I could not get Soft Sky worked into this card. I may use it later this week for some other cards.
I chose to use Purely Pomegranate and River Rock. I have always admired Faith's creations on her blog. There is something about them that just seems to grab me. I decided to try and create a card using her style. Here is what I came up with.
