Tuesday Again!

I'm loving my Monday afternoon ... I'd been looking forward to it all week, a chance to just sit and create - not ideas for workshops, not cards for market, not samples ... just plain old me and creating :)

This week I used the very popular Priceless stamp set - this is one of the Free Wheelin' Bundle specials this month - and is proving very popular with my customers, the So Swirly wheel is so versitle!

First up, the KwernerDesign Challenge -

Once again, there was one colour that was a challenge to fit in - the Bravo Burgundy - I love the other colours in combination together, but the Burgundy just didn't want to fit. I broke into my Pretties Kit - I'm trying to make myself use all my lovely goodies, I'm terrible at not wanting to waste things, and then never using them (which is even more of a waste!). I coloured the flowers with my marker pens - love the way they came out.

Card Stock: Soft Sky, Regal Rose, Bravo Burgundy and Rose Red
Ink: Soft Sky, Rose Red, Bravo Burgundy
Extras: Stampin' Write Markers, Flowers from Pretty Kit, Half Pearl from Pretty Kit, Corner Rounder, Snail, Dimensionals

Next up, the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch - Sketch Challenge Number 193

Because I'd pulled out the colours for the Kwerner Design Challenge, I stayed with those (minus the Burgundy! LOL). This is my favourite of the three cards, must be something about the sketches, it was my favourite last week too.

Card Stock: Soft Sky, Regal Rose, Whisper White and Rose Red
Ink: Soft Sky, Rose Red, Regal Rose
Extras: Stampin' Write Markers, Rose Red DSP, Ribbon Originals (last years), Snail, Dimensionals

Then lastly, the Splitcoast Stampers Colour Challenge 183Challenge

Hmmmm, Read Red, Green Galore and Going Grey. Definitely not colours I use a lot, in fact Green Galore and Going Grey are both stamp pads I don't have, obviously never been on my "must have" list ... and plenty of the Green Galore card left over from the packs of Bold Brights ;) - but that's what it is all about, the challenge! Definitely not a card I'm in love with though, it was very rushed - it was almost time to put dinner on, and getting one to gym at 6.30pm (don't you hate that timing, do you quickly do dinner first, or write it off early and have it late ... the dilemmas of a Mum eh?).

Anyway - one of my ever faithful layouts, the good old strip with a bit added on -

Card Stock: Real Red, Going Grey, Green Galore
Ink: Real Red
Extras: Snail, Corner Rounder

Righty, time to do the never ending grocery shopping ... although we're down two big eaters this week as they are away at school ski camp - means I get to make "normal" size meals this week!

Happy stamping :)
