Hostess -- Lois
Challenge -- Color Challenge of purple, yellow, and green
Well, if your cup of coffee didn't wake you up this morning, the colors of this card should....lol!!!! Lois challenged us to a color combo of purple, yellow, and green. Now I must say that when I saw the combo I totally had planned to do a lovely floral card, but then these digital images of the COFFEE BRAWD arrived and I just felt compelled to play with 'her'. All images and the sentiment are from Totally Stampalicious. You really should check out their stamps, because they have a great sense of humor and really make stamping fun!!! The really cool thing is that right now when you order a set of their stamps you get free digital images of that set for FREE!! Isn't that cool????
I really don't feel there is much that needs explaining on this one. If there is something you need to know, just ask away in a comment and I'll get back to you.
Since I originally scheduled this post, I did make the floral card I set out to do originally, and here it is ...tah dum.....The image is by Innovative Stamp Creations.

CCEE Challenge #1012
Challenge --- Inspiration Photo
Once again, Tosh inspired us with a photo. Well, I basically went with the colors -- pastels -- and used pretty in pink, vanilla, bashful blue, and barely banana. I actually used to (in my baking days) make some sweet little pastel cookies that looked like this. They melted in your mouth and were so pretty to display on a plate. The stamps I used are from a retired SU set called Roses in Winter.
Now I just need to tell you that I had some difficulty with this photo of my card. Please know that in real life, my rose is the same shade as the cardstock with a few darker areas. The photo editing made it much deeper in my photo. This is really the opposite of my first card. This one is soft, pastel, and serene.
