Fun Stuff and Another Color Challenge Example

It's overcast and looking to rain outside (the news says it's going to rain), a bit cold, Caitlyn wasn't behaving at school (still isn't behaving right now, lol), and Audrey has learned how to do the infamous 'Banshee Shriek' that Caitlyn did at 2, which is literally deafening and something I hoped she would never learn; but for some reason I'm still in a really good mood! It couldn't have anything to do with what I got in the mail yesterday, could it? ^_~ I got a wonderful package from Linda, who was my SBS4 Secret Sister. Thank you Linda! And then later on that afternoon I also got my CTMH order with some of the new catty stuff and my Reflections book! I didn't get to create yesterday since we were crazy busy, but since it's a bit cold and cloudy outside today I think the girls and I are going to just stay in, have some hot cocoa, color, and I'm going to play! Here's what I've made already this morning :


Colors from this week's color challenge (#13) and uses my new Cottage Floral and Spot On Backgrounds stamp sets. I also used Friendship Wordpuzzle and Serendipity stamps. Inspiration for this card came from the layout on the front of the new CTMH catty. I'm planning on nearly copying that page sometime. But first I need to stop procrastinating and upload all my 400 or so photos that I've taken since Christmas and get them printed, lol. This uses all CS, I just stamped ^_~. I love these colors together!


Here's the superfun package Linda sent me. I'm adoring that cute House Mouse stamp and the images are so fun! The paper is too cute AND it has glitter on it :D. The card she made is really awesome, I wish I could have gotten it on camera but every pic I took it didn't show up. The background is stamped with some sort of irridescent ink! So when you turn it, the color changes slightly from green to blue, very cool! I also love flowers so it was perfect that the focal point was a sweet layered flower ^_~. She also sent some itty bitty buttons, pretty dress it up buttons, and some cute paper flowers. Thanks Linda!!

You are very welcome. It was cool that we were each others secret sister. That really threw me off. Every time I thought it might be you I would say "nah -- can't be" So I was really fooled. The background for my card was done with clear veramark ink and then metalic pigment powders. I really like them. The large flower came back to you didn't it. That's really funny.

Love the card and I love the colors together! I'm sad I haven't ordered anything new yet! I always try to order with my cutomers, so I can get free product. So I have to wait until the end of the month!! Can't wait to do this challenge. I'm a little behind on them right now! I can't scrap as often as you :( I'm a single mom so I have to go to work, come home and do homework with my kids (which is a lot), make/pick-up dinner, clean house, and even give love time to work to get caught up!! Being a stay-at-home Mom is not easy. I know you have to do a lot! But being a single Mom isn't easy either!
