I play along with color challenges so much that sometimes I forget that I've got colors in my stash that I don't use all that often. I was thinking that I hadn't spent a lot of time with the new InColors and wanted to remedy that when along came the color challenge at Stampin' Royalty which uses three brand-new colors! That's what I call serendipity! I combined them with the Deconstructed Sketch and I was off!
I used some DSP from Patio Party and I've got to say that I have no idea why I bought this paper. I think I liked that it featured several of the new colors, but I don't think I paid very much attention to the patterns because I don't like most of them! Sheesh! That being said, I do like this patterned piece of Summer Starfruit. And I think it looks nice with that bit of Gumball Green peeking out from the edges.
I used a Verve flower and sentiment and a die-cut from a new (to me) Memory Box flourish. I added a Dahlia Adornment to the center of the flower. I really like those little things. Very cool looking!
The other day I mentioned my kittens in a blog post and got a request from my sweet blogging friend Rita to see pictures of them. So I thought I'd show you what they are usually doing when I'm in my stamp room
The one on the left is Bindi and she's usually sleeping on the floor next to my drafting table. The one on the right is Bailey and he generally makes a nuisance of himself by plopping down right in the middle of the table where I work. I can usually count on him getting bored within a few minutes and he takes off for other adventures, but every once in a while he settles in for the long haul and I have to convince him that I need my space back! They were just a year old on July 3rd, but I still call them kittens!
The weather is looking a little iffy today so I might have a built-in excuse to spend time inside getting all crafty! Thanks for stopping by today!
