Blogger Challenge - May 25, 2012

Hello! - Well it's been a very "productive" week here for me and a BUSY one as well.  My friend, Teresa came down to visit on Tuesday and we worked on cards, ate donuts and fruit, went to JoAnn's and bought crafty stuff, went to lunch, chatted, laughed and had a great time.
So yesterday I finished up all 6 cards for the card swap and mailed them. Made a birthday card for a Pen-pal and mailed it and then decided to make a card for the Blogger Challenge since it's been a few weeks since I've participated. (Did you miss me?)  So without further ado here is my card...





The challenge Lisa (Designs by Lisa Somerville) gave us this week is a color challenge:  Brown, Green and any Neutral Color.  Oh my, I had brown designer paper, green designer paper but nothing that had those two colors together.  Then I remembered that I had some wonderful 6x6 paper pads and found some awesome patterns in one of them.  The pad is from DCWV - Safari Chic Matstack.
The stamps I used are from: SU - In The Wild and Paradise - Both are Retired Stamp Sets.
The Sentiment is from: Annette Allen Watkins
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Very Vanilla
Ink: Mellow Moss, Soft Suede and a tiny bit of More Mustard Chalk on the Giraffe
Other: Circle Nestabilitie Dies, Brown Pearls (Zva), Button, Linen Thread

So now you can join in on the challenge and link back here:


Wishing you all a very Safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend. - Summer is almost here!!!
