The Challenge #38 - Color Challenge


Happy Monday...my first week off of school for the summer! I am doing the happy dance right now...I do need to go in to do a bit of cleaning but that should not take too long and I will have my handy dandy iPod with me so I can rock out while cleaning.

Don't you just love this week's colors for The Challenge, they look so amazing together! I have been so busy helping friends with baby shower decoration and baking for Eagle Scout events I have not had much time to be crafty. But those are now behind me and my craft room is clean so I am ready to make some cards! I hope you will find some time to play along with us this week.

I am also entering my card in the Coffee Lovers blog hop that the wonderful Amy Tsuruta from Tsuruta Designs is hosting...so many amazing sponsors and prizes too!

I have a new follower, the incredible Loll Thompson from Stamping with Loll. What a talented lady she is, be sure to check out her blog, you will be blown away by all of hare amazing creations. I am truly honored to have Loll as my newest follower!

Baby Shower center pieces, I made 20 of these little critters

 


It took 2 dozen eggs, 3 pounds of powdered sugar, 3.5 pounds of butter and lots more ingredients to make this 117 cupcake flag. My girlfriends son made Eagle Scout and this was served at his Court of Honor. I was so honored to be asked to make it!

  2. Happy summer vacation Kim!
    I love this coffee card, my favourite coffee card that I have ever seen...honestly!
    I think the colours that you used to create with and the awesome mix of patterns evokes a really warm feeling, like a cup of coffee! The coffee die cut ( same as the blog hop icon right? Who makes this?) is fantastic!
    Thanks for sharing all of your recent activities with showers and cupcake making/designing...you are one talented gal and busy! Hugs XOX
