Colour Challenge and RAKS

Good Tuesday Afternoon!
My day WAS going good til I had a run in with another parent at the school. This woman has a MAJOR chip on her shoulder and doesn't like anyone....I swear to goodness! Now I have a killer headache and this incident has sucked all the creativity out of me...ugh!
I did manage to get this card done earlier today with my neighbour, friend and new stamper, Lisa. She came by and we each worked on todays SCS Colour Challenge.
Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.
Stamps: High Hopes, Lizzie Anne Designs; Cardstock: Lovely Lilac, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, WW and Watercolour paper; Inks: Black Stazon, Lovely Lilac and SU! Markers; Accessories: Rectangle Nesties, Slit Punch, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Dimensionals, Aqua Painter, 5/8" Celery Ribbon, Glitter
Yesterday I had a GREAT mail day!!
I received this great package from Kelly at Crafting Creatively!
She sent me tons of stamped High Hopes and Magnolia images PLUS this great scrapbook. Thanks so much Kelly!

Lori from Inking Aloud sent me this wonderful card and a whole bunch of Georgia Pacific white cardstock. We can't get it in Canada so it was super sweet of her to send me some to try out! Thanks so much Lori!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I'm off to take something for the headache...lol!

Love the little glittery butterfly on the top card. Sorry to hear that you had to deal with a grumpy parent.....I know how that goes!!!! I like the bottom flower card too....soft and bright at the same time.
