Hey there blog friends!  

There's a new color challenge at The House That Stamps Built this week and it's one you're going to have some fun with.  

My card uses RI Stamps #5116-I Cat Sitting Sil, RI#2308-E "Bats", RI#1139-F "Halloween". 

The cat looks speckled, but it's my clear Wink of Stella pen under Glossy Accents. 

For some great inspiration to get you going with this challenge, check out the other Rock Stars' blogs then come on over and play in the challenge.  If you do, you'll be entered in a drawing for $25.00 worth of fabulous RI stamps.  If you use RI stamps on your entry, you'll be entered in the drawing twice!

Another quick post!  

I made this card for a special friend (no names, in case she's looking) and my inspiration came from the photo challenge at the Altenew Blog September/October Challenge.  

These photos of Windsor Castle are stunning and I can't even imagine being surrounded by such richness on a daily basis.  Can you????  

I've never been to the UK, but it's been on my "bucket list" for a long time.  My Scottish heritage is calling me.  

The gold panels and the rich raspberry color were the strong motivators for the creation of this card and I used the awesome Altenew Persian Motifs stamp set.  I don't have many Altenew Stamps, but the ones that I do have I absolutely love and have used many, many times.  The gold frame is the Altenew Timeless Frames

Thank you for stopping by.

Quick post today to tell you about the newest challenge at Sunday Clean and Simple challenge at Outlawz Challenges site.  

The challenge is a foody challenge.  Come on over and play....there's a great prize to win.

My card....inspired by apples!  

I've had this Lockhart Stamp for some time....Ellen Hutson carries them and they are some of the most adorable rubber stamps out there.  I colored the image according to the instructions from the Copic Coloring Guide Level 1.  In the book, they actually used this stamp for one of the examples and since I've had this stamp I wanted to give the coloring instruction a try.   I created the bg with sponges and some coordinating inks and a light flicking motion.  I like how it came out.  

That's it...I hope you'll find some time to come over and play in the challenge this week.  

Thanks for stopping by.
