A Big Thank You! and a Card Challenge

Wow, I can't believe it's been 5 days since I last posted to my blog. I seemed to be on such a roll last week and then this week I've had a lean week for stamping. I do want to say a big thank you to Nancy, Windstar Creations, and Carolyn, P.M.S. ETC. Each of these sweet ladies nominated me for an award. To say that made my day would be an understatement. Thank you so much, girls, for honoring me with those awards. Each of these girls is so talented and generous and I am thrilled to be nominated by them. I will be back to post my awards and nominate someone for them, but I did want to acknowledge Nancy and Carolyn for thinking of me.

I also wanted to post my HM challenge since I managed to get it done. I was recently in Hobby Lobby and remembered that they sell HM stamps there. I found one of the images I fell in love with on the challenges, was on sale! I even found a sentiment that went perfectly with it. This week's challenge was a color challenge....Cameo Coral, Old Olive, and Night of Navy. I think my card is self-explanatory, given those color perameters. I colored my bunny with my Copic markers. If you can see, I colored her necklace beads in Old Olive and Night of Navy, alternating colors. My bunny has a keen sense of fashion when it comes to color coordination. :) Thanks for stopping by. I'm always thrilled to read your encouraging comments. The HM design team did some adorable cards so be sure to check them out. I'll try to be back soon. Nancy sent me a tutorial on making ATC pockets and I made 3 and put valentines in them for my grandbabies. Can't wait to show them to you. Thank you, Nancy for sharing that. Happy Saturday!
