Last saturday I attended our local spring Stamp Camp. I was so tired once home that I fell asleep and missed the Creative Cat Crew color challenge that week. Today is the only day that I can work on March Paper Pumpkin alternatives thus possibly jeapordizing a second week of participating. So, after completing a set of alternatives I thought I would see if this week's colors were a close...

As I rebuild my lost stash of supplies I find many challenges by not having absolutely everything. This is a unique situation that is stretching my creativity. For this month's alternatives, I found no dies in my meager collection that coordinate so instead I used textures and inks. I love to stencil and did recently purchase a four pack of  Stampin' Up! stencils, Stampin' Up! refers to them...

Peacock Amazing You Card

I had the pleasure of crafting at Libby's today. We worked on color challenge cards. It is so much more fun for me to craft with friends. Hub isn't bad, but he refuses to craft with me (imagine that!). For this week's color challenge, the colors weren't as big of a mental block as the previous two challenges.

When I first laid out the three colors I thought, oh boy it's going to be...

Hub is very supportive, understanding my need to be creative so he took his laptop and setup in the kitchen for the...

This week's Creative Cat Crew Color challenge #44 was another tough one. Each week I further challenge myself to use a new stamp set and each week I have less options to choose from. I am staying at my mom's this weekend and did not bring any Very Vanilla. She didn't have anything close so I substituted Whisper white instead, I did make the white a small part of the project rather than the...
