Blog Hop Wednesday -- August 31, 2016

Here we are with another blog hop Wednesday.  Liz hurt her arm and shoulder a couple weeks ago, so she has not been doing a lot of crafting.  Therefore she is not with us this week and Joni is before me. Joni always has something nice for us.  If you haven't checked her out that go back to her blogsite, then you can go forth to Robbie.  (go forth sounds like something from Sunday school, hmmmmm).  Anyway, here are our colors.....

They are red, white, and blue for the upcoming Labor Day holiday.  Wow, I can hardly believe that summer is already coming to a close.  I think I love fall the best because of the beautiful colors and the beautiful, crisp, weather.  Oh, but I do not like to think of the drab, chilly, months right behind.  Oh well, I will enjoy what we have today.  I hope you will be having a great Labor Day picnic to finish off the summer.  We are having a neighborhood picnic, which we do every year.

So enough jabbering.  Here is my holiday card.  Plenty of red, white, and blue.  I could not find any stamp that said labor or anything close.  So I just went with happy day.

Hope you like my card.  Now continue on to Robbie's blogsite to see what she has done.

Have a happy holiday,

Blog Hop Wednesday -- August 24, 2016

Hi, it's blog hop Wednesday.  You probably came from Joni's blogsite where you got a treat.  Our colors this week are bright.  They make me think of balloons, so what do you think I did?

 Here is the card I did.

This is a quick blog because the card is self explanatory.  I used the balloons from Bella & Friends and hand cut then drew the lines.  You may not have figured that balloon without the little puppy hanging from it.  .

Ok, continue to Robbie's blogsite for another great creation.

See you soon,

Color Blog Hop -- Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Happy Wednesday.  Wow, it is hot here.  We need a giant, cool, swimming pool, not our heated hot tub.   Well, we have some cool, purple, colors for you today.  You should have come from Liz's blogsite.  And when you leave here you should continue to Robbie's blogsite.

I used 3 purple colors, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum.   I love the color family dsp stacks.  There are some really great patterns and the paper always fits.

I hope to see you again next week with our next color challenge.  Now head on over to Robbie's blogsite.

Stay cool,

Color Blog Hop Wednesday -- August 10, 2016

Hi all.  It is our Wednesday color challenge.  Once again we are working with monochromatic color.  This time in reds.  You probably came to me by way of Liz's blogsite.  I know she was struggling with reds, but I bet she did a wonderful job.  I struggled a little too, but chose to use Melon Mambo, Rose Red and Pink Pirouette.

Here is the card I made with the 3 red colors:

I just recently received my stamp set called Touches of Texture.  I like the look of watercolor and somewhat abstract flowers.  I think it is going to be a favorite set of mine.  There is a lot of versatility.

Friday I received my initial pre-order from the new Holiday Catalog.  Oh, wow, I am going to have a lot of trouble limiting my purchases.  I love everything in that catalog.  There are lots of bundles.  Stampin'Up! is giving us more and more dies to make our lives easier.  I'm in love with the cute Halloween sets, as well as Christmas sets.  First I need to work a bit more with what I have and then I will start in on Fall and Christmas.

I hope to see you all soon.  Now head over to Robbie's site if you have not already come from there.

Happy Crafting,

Blog Hop Wednesday -- August 3, 2016

It is blog hop Wednesday and we are doing something a little different this week.  We are going with monochromatic colors.  This week it is shades of yellow.   You should have arrived here from Liz's blogsite.

My colors are So Saffron, Crushed Curry and Delightful Dijon.

 This is the card I made.  I used the pretty Detailed Floral Thinlit.  I made the card to be mostly a closed card although if you untie the twine, there is a flower inside.  If I were going to mail it I would sign inside, but there is no narrative inside.

Now you should continue to Robbie's blogsite.  See you again soon.

Happy Crafting,
