Tuesday Color Challenge

I'm going to try posting at night in the hopes that subscribers won't get this a day late. I'm going to post my card that I put on SCS for today's color challenge, which was Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red, and Blush Blossom. I love this image from Hanna Stamps, and the sentiment that comes with the set says "Stamping Develops Strong Muscles." I think that is so cute, although I'm not going to use it for the person I intend to send this card to. At any rate, I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and that's about it. I really like the color combo, and I like the work-out girl....I need to get busy with my own weights. Have a great day!

Keeping it Simple

Today I want to feature two cards that my daughter created. She is a new mom and a very accomplished musician, but when it comes to artsy things, she likes to "keep it simple." We recently made up a bunch of card sets to auction off to raise money for our Mission Team at church, and she came up with both of these ideas. My family always laughs that I'm up late in my studio working on cards, but the card with the stars was her creation late at night - very late actually - and she surprised me with it in the morning. I was very tickled with her creations, and all of our card sets sold in the auction. It was then that I ordered a stamp that said "K&B Cards" since I put her on my "design team." The card with the stars used Barely Banana for the card base, which really doesn't show up here. The colors were actually great together. Happy Tuesday!
