SCS Colour Challenge

Oh my goodness is it ever chilly here today! I sent Chloe to school in her winter jacket! I need to pull my mittens out and wear them tomorrow for sure! My hands were freezing while I was out on supervision at school today! I should be setting a good example for the kids...lol
Today is the Colour Challenge on SCS. I like all these colours but never would have put them all together before this. Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and So Saffron. I had wanted to do a Christmas card with them(as it's my goal to do one a day) but I just could not make it work. I have seen a lot of GREAT ones in the gallery today though. So I'll give it another go later on.
I'm going to need a baby card again soon. We have a couple of teachers expecting! I thought this card would suit either a boy or girl...or at least I hope so!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Wild About You, Nice and Narrow
Cardstock: Temp. Turq., Real Red, So Saffron, WW
Inks: Temp. Turq., So Saffron
Accessories: CB dry embossing folder, Red and Turq. Grosgrain Ribbon, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Photo Corner Punch, Stampin Dimensionals
I remember when I first got this Make A Wish Set from GinaK!!! I used it often but then it got pushed back because of all the other holidays that are coming up. What better colours to use for a child's birthday! So fun!
I wanted to keep this simple. Mostly because I was running out of time before having to leave for the school. I think I'll add some glitter to the stars ;)
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Make A Wish by GinaK, Nice & Narrow(star shape)
Cardstock: Temp. Turq., Real Red, So Saffron, Confetti White
Inks: Black Stazon, Real Red, So Saffron, Temp. Turq.
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Stampin Dimensionals

Tomorrow is Halloween! Are you all ready?! I will put up my blow up stacking pumpkins in the afternoon. Last year it was too windy and cold -15C to bother...lol
I think Brian is taking Chloe Trick or Treating and I'll hand out the candy! YAH! I get to stay warm ;)


  1. These are adorable, that is a great color combo, who would have thought, love your cuttlebug background.

  2. This is such an eye-catching color combination--I have to give it a try later today. I love the baby card-perfect for a boy or a girl. That giraffe is one of my favorite images for baby cards.
