Hi stamping friends! Well, I finally made it into my stamp room this week! Whoa! It is still a bit of a challenge to move around on my feet a week after surgery. I am finding I have been seeping a LOT with the pain meds and keeping my tootsies elevated in bed. I had my follow-up with the Dr. on Friday morning and got to see the mystery under those bandages. Yeah, it was pretty gross! One more week until the stitches come out...hopefully.
But you didn't come here to hear about my yucky feet, did you? Ha! It's Saturday and that means it is time for another fun challenge at Dynamic Duos! This week we are focusing on the soft and subtle colors of Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink.
I found a new sketch challenge blog this week called Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Not only do they have some fun sketches, the design team is awesome and full of wonderful inspiration. Check them out, if you haven't already.For some reason, I had it stuck in my head that I wanted to use the Quint-Essential Flower stamp with these colors, so I went with it. I love how that stamp pairs with so many different punches. I added some embossing and colored some pink rhinestones to dress things up a bit. All of the supplies are listed at the end of the post. I kind of struggled with this card, but was happy to get it completed after this long week. :)
Sorry the colors in my photos are a bit wonky. As I was trying to snap these photos Friday, it was sunny on one side of the house and THIS was rolling in on the other side:
Yikes, right? Would you believe that we didn't get a drop of rain from those skies. Well, if you lived in Texas, you would believe it...that's our crazy weather for you! Just a LOT of wind and (thank goodness) a brief temperature drop.
I hope you enjoyed today's card! Please stop by and visit the Dynamic Duos blog to check out what the rest of the lovely ladies on the Design Team have created for inspiration this week. We sure hope you will join us and play along. The challenge closes Friday, August 17th at Noon (PDT)
