Good Wednesday Morning!

A word of advice?! BEFORE deciding to make a shaker card....be sure you have all the elements...lol
I was so excited to play with my new stamps/papers and wanted to use some cool beads and glitter that Brian gave me for Christmas....that I didn't look for acetate....ummmm you can't make a shaker without it....lol Of course I didn't realize it until I was putting it all together....so this is a nice window card instead! I *know* I have tons of acetate somewhere...maybe it's with my Flight of the Butterfly set ;o)
Stamps: Love Ya Much; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, WW and Candy Lane DP; Inks: Black; Accessories: Label nesties, Scallop punch, 1" circle punch, Heart Punch, Riding Hood Taffeta ribbon, dimensionals
ACK! Did you see the CC for yesterday???Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green. I was freaking out when I saw it was Garden Green! Puke puke puke! After the inital shock, I remembered....ah-ha! I had some Jersey Shore DP in my stash! Jackpot! Ok so it's probably Wild Wasabi in the DP but shhhhhh you can't tell ;) Once I found the DP....I knew I could make it work! Yippee! I pulled out the Pun Fun set and watercoloured with my aqua painter and ink pads.
Stamps: Pun Fun; Cardstock: White, Brilliant Blue, Garden Green, WC paper and Jersey Shore DP; Inks: Black Stazon, Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Summer Sun; Accessories: Aqua painter, Pumpkin ribbon, Word window punch, Label nesties, Silver cord, Dimensionals
As I was completing my first card I realized I still had my Rock-On set on my table from yesterday. These colours are cool enough for another Rock-On card! Remember that H & M Stamps are having a Garage Sale and today is the last day to get stamps from $3 to $5 per SET...yes SET~
Stamps: Rock-On; Cardstock: Kraft, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue, WW and Jersey Shore DP; Inks: Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Black; Accessories: 1 3/4" circle punch, Dimensionals
Some exciting news....my friend Peggy from PaperWorksCo is now carrying COPIC markers! Yeah! Another reason for me to meet her for coffee at Tim's ;) Pop on by her store to see what else she's gotten in lately! Also...notices from Canada Post are popping up with delivery of new catty's to arrive at the end of the week!!! Can't wait to peek!
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Great execution of the color challenge even if it made you want to puke =)

And thanks a lot for enabling...had you not mentioned, it would've taken me at least another day to re-check the PaperWorksCo website!

Ugh, I hate when that sorta thing happens...like thinking I have enough ribbon on a roll and then realizing there's only a scrap size left. Oye! Cute cards, girl! Good idea to change it into a window card. :)
