Blogger's Challenge #21



First of all, I apologize for being late. My first excuse is that my dh and I celebrated our 7th anniversary yesterday! So, little stamping was done! I should have done my challenge early but I got myself out of that good habit and formed a new habit of waiting until the last minute to complete the challenge. With a couple of days off from school for Thanksgiving, maybe I can change back to the good ways!

This week's challenge was a color combo challenge! I LOVE color challenges, especially when I forget to put certain colors together. Lisa came up with a brilliant combo: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Brocade Blue. We could also add in a choice of Whisper White or Very Vanilla, if we chose. I did...

The first card started to be my anniversary card (which dh got today...oops) but I'll share the real one next! I chose the set "Wild About You" because I'm wild about him. But in the end, it looked more appropriate for a younger person...even though Steve is young at heart! This card uses the satin ribbon from the Holiday Mini catalog (which you can still order from until November 30!)

The second card is more appropriate for my dh...the cowboy in a pastor's body! I used MANY stamps for this one including: Wanted, Bronc Buster, Weathered. I guess only three but it seemed like more. I used Naturals Ivory for my "neutral" choice instead of WW or VV.

BTW...the Schwan's fundraiser begins tomorrow. BUT!!! DON'T EXPECT ANY PRODUCT TO ARRIVE UNTIL 4-6 WEEKS ONCE WE CLOSE THE FUNDRAISER. I didn't mention that in the original posting! Make sure to include the "code" for our school so we actually get our portion!

Thanks so much for looking!
