Yet another SNEAK PEEK!
Howdy folks! Gosh - meant to have this posted earlier today....but time got away from me. We had Will's Track and Field Day at school today - what fun! I think the kids had a blast - I KNOW my two littles did, they went down for naps at 2:30 without a fuss! That gave me time to make Will's t-shirt that he needs for Letter People day tomorrow. He's got Mr. W - Mr. W has a Wonderful Wink. I think the shirt is a teensy boring. I could have had more fun with Mr. B. He has lots of buttons. And I love BUTTONS!!! :)
So, I ran across a new challenge blog - over at The Paper Players. I thought I would play along this week and give their color challenge a try. I'm not real wonderful with color challenges, but I think I handled this one okay.
I used my numbers in the new (sneak peek) Memorable Moments set to create a background. I didn't get terribly fussy with lining the numbers up perfectly or anything. No stamp-a-ma-jig here. I just went with it! And I like how that turned out. I knew with the bold Poppy and Daffodil colors in this challenge that I was going to need to keep one of them to a minimum, I as much as I love the Poppy Parade, I thought it needed to be subtle. I think it really worked too. And I'm sure you'd like to know about the Daffodil Die Cut on this card....well, I did a little finagling with one of the new dies to do that, and love the results. I may even come up with a video to show you how. How would you like that. It'll be coming at you next week sometime! I'll give you something to look forward to....
Until tomorrow....go stamp something!
