Shower Me With LOVE! 19

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, December 30, 2009 @ 10:00 PM | , , , ,

Hi Girls! Another "short" work week for me - YEAH!!! That means more crafty time :) First, I would like to thank the girls at the Embellish Magazine Blog for selecting my Snow Boy Friend card in their Top 6 for the Embellish Snowflakes Color Challenge :) I am doing the Happy Dance!!! Please be sure to visit the Embellish Magazine site & see all the beautiful creations!

This week, I am honored to be the Guest Designer at The Play Date Cafe along side the super talented Julie Ranae & all the girls on The Play Date Cafe's Design Team. This week Sweet Sarah is the Hostess & she has chosen this YUMMY color combination for The Play Date Cafe's Creativity Challenge #10, PDCC10. Sarah was inspired by a necklace that a friend had given her! How sweet is that? Sarah said "In certain lights this necklace is more of an orange with turquoise and brown but during the transition from camera to computer it's become a more dusky pink." Oh thank goodness - I love anything pink ;)

Here is my Shower Me With LOVE card: My interpretation of these colors are SU Tempting Turquoise, Pretty in Pink & Chocolate Chip. The DP that I used to make this card is a retired collection from SU 2006! This was my very first pack of paper that I purchased from SU when my dear friend, Shana introduced me to stamping. I was saving it for a RAINY day! :)

After stamping the PTI flowery Umbrella image, I cut it out & pieced it on the embossed white oval then layered it on several more Scalloped Ovals. I love to layer anything & everything!!!

For sketch inspiration, I played along with this weeks Mercy's fun sketch, MTSC54.

I love this color combination! The pink & blue really show up nicely when layered on the rich chocolatey colored paper. For some great eye catching inspiration please be sure to stop by The Play Date Cafe, the Embellish Magazine & Mercy's site to see what ALL these girls have created!

Do you have any BIG New Year's plans? I would love to hear about them :) It is going to be a busy weekend here at Cupcake's! We have to ring in The New Year on Friday, Saturday is a NEW fun Just Us Girls sketch challenge & Sunday is slated to be THE OFFICIAL RELEASE day for My Time Made Easy LLC! I hope you have time to stop by to see what I have been up to :) Be Sweet!
