Happy Birthday Stephanie!...CR84FN26 51

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, April 30, 2011 @ 8:57 PM | , , , ,

Happy May 1st! Hope you are all having a great weekend! Before I get to today's CR84FN Color Challenge, I have a few things I would like to share. In my crafty world ~ if you visit here often, you know how much I LOVE gorgeous Melissa Frances products. Well, I am tickled pink to tell you that  I recently had a project featured on the Melissa Frances blog, if you have a moment, I would be thrilled if you took a peek, click HERE :) I am also in the midst of the May Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews, so if you are interested in seeing samples that I have made with stamps that Claire is releasing this month, please feel free to take a peek (click HERE ~ Day1 or click HERE ~ Day2.)

Let's get to the CR84FN26 Color Challenge! This week we are celebrating our very own DT member Stephanie Kraft's Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEPHANIE! Please be sure to stop by Stephanie's blog and leave her some birthday love :)

I would also like to welcome & introduce you to Lin Brandyberry. Lin will be sharing her awesome creations and joining the CR84FN DT as our May Guest Designer! Please be sure to visit Lin's blog to see all of her wonderful artwork.

Thanks to all who played along with last week's challenge! There were so many fabulous entries!
This week we are playing with KRAFT, PALE YELLOW and GOLD. Photos are courtesy of MARTHASTEWART.com 

Here's my interpretation of the soft and subtle colors:
I combined stamped yellow polka dot paper that I created by inking up the polka dot image from Waltzingmouse Gingham & Co. with SU Barely Banana ink with a few pretty My Mind's Eye patterned paper from the Lost & Found collection. I stamped the seed packet image from Artistic Outpost Bloom & Grow then adorned it with several home made flowers and stamped foliage from Waltzingmouse Faux Fun Circles.
Thanks for stopping by today :) Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs:
Stephanie Kraft
Heather Jensen  (may post later in the week due to lack of electricity but sure would appreciate some love, thoughts and prayers :) 
Lin Brandyberry (May Guest Designer)

Hope you stop by later today at 2:00 PM Eastern to see what I have to share for the May Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Faux Fun Circles, Gingham & Co., Frame-It, Artistic Outpost Bloom & Grow
