~ Happy Wednesday! It's time for a brand new Color Throwdown challenge! This week our generic colors are Turquoise, Green, Gold, and White. ~ ~ I needed a masculine birthday card this week, so my card uses the Essentials by Ellen Stay Salty stamp set for a nautical theme. ~ ~ The boat, water, and some of the sky are water colored and the flag and sun are colored with a gold gel pen. A simple one-layer card that mails well. We'd love for you to play along with us! Please get all the challenge details at the CTD blog... Continue reading

Here is Big Ol' Bow! ~ ~ It's incredible and so much fun to color! Just think of all the patterned papers you could use for the wrapping paper with this Big Ol' Bow on top! I went for a simple, yet elegant version, with a red bow/ribbon on white paper. And my ribbon has sparkly edges, courtesy of some Star Dust Stickles!... Continue reading

~ ~ I can't believe we're already on Day 6 of the Power Poppy Christmas Remix Holiday Blitz! Today we're introducing the new Poinsettia LX digital stamp set.

It's time for a new Color Throwdown challenge and our generic colors this week are Turquoise, Orange, Silver or Gray. ~ ~ I'm hard at work trying to get as many Christmas cards made as possible.

~ Happy Wednesday! It's time for a new Color Throwdown challenge, y'all!
