Color Throwdown #4

Hope everyone is having a great week. I have been too tired to stamp most of the week, but I didn't want to miss out on this week's Color Throwdown color challenge. I actually love this color combo. I never use Almost Amethyst, but it works great with this combo.
This card didn't end up quite as I had envisioned, but in the end I was pretty happy with it. It was a difficult one to photo again. You can't tell from this picture but I added some Art Institue Lion's Mane glitter to the edges of the flowers. It is actually very pretty in real life (IMO).
Supplies used: Sunflower stamp from Inkadinkado, Weathered and Noteworthy from SU!, Palette Noir Ink, Prismacolor markers, Koh-i-noor colored pencils w/OMS, Lion's Mane glitter from Art Institute and black rhinestones from Hero Arts.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Lovin my JustRite monogram stamper!!!

Yesterday I found a little time to play in my stamp room and I couldn't resist playing a bit with my JustRite monogram stampers. I absolutely love these things. I bought 2 different monogram sets plus the tiny letters, so I have a variety to experiment with. I totally love the tiny letters. The sky is the limit with these!
Supplies used for this card: JustRite Monogram stamper, Studio g clear stamp set, Stampin Up! cardstock, May Arts ribbon, Prismacolor markers, Koh-i-noor colored pencils, OMS, Stampin Up! Dazzling Diamonds glitter. (Sorry, I don't know the DP manufacturer).

I also wanted to share another blog award that I got from one of my sweet SBS-13 sisters, Kari.
Thanks Kari!! BTW, Kari makes some super cute headbands that she sells in her etsy should check them out!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

DRS Challenge

As part of the DRS Designs design team search process, they gave the finalists 3 stamps that they needed to create a card with. When I saw the stamps I thought they were great, individually, but together....definitely a challenge! The sentiment stamp was really large and since I typically have a hard time finding room for a sentiment on my card, let alone a large sentiment, the challenge was even greater. In the end I used the entire sentiment but I cut it into several pieces. Considering the challenge, I was actually really happy with the card I made.
To see all of the different ideas the DT ladies came up with using these 3 stamps, check out the DRS blog...challenge cards will be highlighted all this week!

I hope you are having a great Monday! Thanks for stopping by!

It's Sunday night....

and unfortunately X-Files Sunday nights are years in the past...that's ok though, I am still on cloud 9 after getting to see the "X-Files - I Want To Believe" yesterday morning. After all these years I'm still in love with Fox Mulder. I thought the movie was great! They left it open enough that they could have another movie or maybe just start the series back up...yeah, I know I'm dreaming...
I didn't get any stamping done this weekend. I have been really tired lately. Not just a little tired....abnormally tired. I'm heading to the doc on Tuesday to see if they can figure out the problem and give me my life back. You know I'm sick when I'd rather nap than stamp.
I'm hoping to have some energy tomorrow to make something while the kids are at preschool. Crossing my fingers at least.
In the mean time I got this totally awesome blog award from my friend Jen. THANKS JEN!!! This is a fun one...
