A Little of This...A Little of That
This week we have animals at the county fair so it's been a little more chaotic than usual here! Jack is loving his time there. He is such a good, and helpful worker when it comes to the animals. From feeding to cleaning (yep, you got to give the animals a bath daily to keep them cooled off and looking sparkly clean) to brushing them....he truly is the sweetest and best helper anyone could have! I have to share that he entered a project in the home arts department for the first time this year. He stamped his own card and was awarded a First Place Blue Ribbon! He was so tickled! And I couldn't be prouder of him! His mom (wink, wink) also won a First Place Blue Ribbon for the card I entered and four additional ribbons (two First Place and two Second Place) in different photography categories.
The colors this week were so bold that it reminded me of splashes of color, like the Color 5K Runs you see and hear about where people are just covered in colors when they cross the finish line. The splatter is from the Swirly Bird stamp set and was stamped in all three colors. As I was creating this card, I went with a "little bit of this and a little bit of that" mentality. I used die cuts and punched pieces from Swirly Scribbles, Bouquet Bunch, Sweet and Sassy and the Lemon Builder punch. I just kept adding until I was happy with the result. The saying from the Layering Love stamp set was the perfect choice for this whimsy card. The white on white base for the card really lets all the colors take center stage. I let my creativity go and voila! this masterpiece was born. We'd love for you to join us with this week's color challenge. Just hop on over to Create with Connie and Mary to play along. Happy Stamping!
