After much deliberation as a family, we decided that we are going to increase our family size by one more, and get a dog. He will be an outside dog for the kids to play with and hang out with....his name is Cocoa (not sure how the kids are going to spell it) and he is a Malamute (sp?) Husky crossed with a black lab. I will post pic's once we get him here and all settled in. We have some work to do in the back yard with the fence and get the gates hung back up so he can't escape and the kids are in the process of building him a mansion of a dog house along with Nana and Papa's help. They are very excited!
Anyhewwwwww .... enough rambling hey?! On with the crafty stuff :o) I decided to give Samantha's color combo a try from Scrapmaster's Paradise and I combined it with Taylor's Cupcake Challenge over at Taylored Expressions. I need to admit whole-heartedly that these colors were WICKEDLY DIFFICULT for me...I love Kraft and Durango, but that green was so hard to incorporate in there. I think I did "ok" with it and it turned out alright in the end. Thanks, Samantha, for such a challenge - these are good to make us step out of our comfort zones and attempt some new stuff!
.....here is my card using both challenges:
Stamps: Vintage Labels; Paper: Kraft, Green Galore, Dusty Durango, Dusty Durango DSP; Ink: Dusty Durango, Basic Black; Accessories: scallop square and circle punch, square punch, large circle punch, dimensionals, ribbon.
Thanks for stopping in tonight...I'll hopefully be back tomorrow evening for another installment! Have a super night!!
