Amy Rysavy is our hostess this week and here are the wonderfully vibrant colors she’s chosen: Purple, Orange, Yellow, Green ~ ~ I used a new-to-me clear stamp set I picked up at Hobby Lobby – no name, but it’s cute, and it was in the clearance bin! ~ ~ I watercolored a background and die cut it, then I watercolored the fruit and cut them out. They are popped up on foam mounting tape. Pretty simple. So now it’s your turn to play along. Let’s see... Continue reading

~ Hello, again! I hope any of you who were in the path of the devastating hurricanes we've had over the past 2 weeks are recovering from the losses and emotional stress. I know the South Carolina low-country coast has been all but demolished again, less than a year after Matthew. It's so sad. It's one of the places that I love most. My prayers go out to all of you who have been affected in any way. On to happier subjects! Like the latest challenge from the Color Throwdown! ~ ~ How is that for a beautiful combo? Navy,...

A little respite, maybe! ~ ~ The generic colors are Raspberry Pink, Yellow, and Green. And you can use any other neutrals in your creation. I needed a birthday card for a very special lady...
