Color Me Monday on Friday

Hello! Is it October???? Wow... where did September go?

Sorry I haven't updated this blog for a while. Still trying to work out all the bugs and learn how to use this computer. ;-)

I'm very excited to use my new stamp sets I received in the mail 2 days ago. Damask Tiles is quickly replacing the Alfresco as one of my favorite sets! I just love the look of the background it gives!


Before I share my artwork with you today, I have to tell you about this great blog Jeanette Lynton has. Jeanette is the founder of Close To My Heart and she has a post every Monday called... Color Me Monday. She picks out 4 CTMH colors and creates amazing artwork in those colors. Here's her blog link.... http://www.jeanettelynton.com/

I just loved these colors together; so, I thought I would try them out too.
Cranberry, Cocoa, Garden Green & Colonial White


Inside of the card...

I used...
D1379 Flourished Blessings, C1342 Damask Tiles, C1362 You're a Hoot, and Bamboo, Cranberry, Cocoa, and Garden Green inks.

I used the same colors on this one and the C1342 Damask Tiles, and D1198 The Gift of Love stamp sets.



I used the Damask Tiles, The Gift of Love, and the Flourished Blessings sets on this one.

I just loved those color combos! Here's a birthday card that uses the same colors with a retired paper packet...


This card used the Gracious Greeting D1265, for the sentiment.
Thanks for hanging out with me for a little bit! I'll catch up with you again soon!
