Oh, How Time Flies! & 1st Colorado Stamping Challenge

Oh my goodness, where does the time go? I cannot believe I have not posted on my blog in a week! What the heck is wrong with me? No really, I am sorry but I have been so busy...I just do not know where the time goes. I barely even stamped this weekend...boo hoo. I am actually working on some Baby Shower invites for my sister's close friend...I will post them hopefully in a day or two. I also received a big SU order this week, I am twitterpated, but I have not even had a chance to play with all my new goodies...What is a girl to do?

Anyway, I am part or a new group from Colorado. It is a stamping challenge group similar to my lovely LSC friends. I do not think we have even finalized on a name yet...but anyhow, I first challenge was due today. It was an inspiration challenge using a photo Stephanie found at Pottery barn. Isn't it pretty?


Well, here is my take on it. What do you think? I used SU Baja Breeze, Old Olive, So Saffron, Ruby Red, and Very Vanilla. The images are from Inkainkadoo (sp?). I distressed the edges of the top two layers and pop dotted them for interest. The large brad and small one are from my stash. I am pleased on how the card turned out. Even though I stapped out of my norm and actually did not do something with a flower...that is a rare occasion for me, lol.

Well, have a great night an d wonderful week. I hope to post more this week!

Jo--this is awesome. You are going to love doing weekly challenges. It really helps you create even when time is flying by.
