my little sunshine...

Hello!

Taking a little break from DT work {managed to crank out 3 cards so far} and played with a couple challenges this morning:


I gotta tell you...I've been pretty proud of myself for really using my May Studio Calico kit....all the paper for my card is from it.  The stamp is from the Pink Paislee Prairie Hill Collection!  Prairie Hill is available via Paper Issues!


I, of course, managed to squeeze in some of that fabbie Caribbean from The Twinery.

The colors were inspired by the current



gorgeous color story!

The Play Date Cafe Design Team rocked the challenge and thee Teri Anderon is the guestie this week!

I was also excited to find a new challenge blog:


It's based on cue cards:


Okay, off to make another card:)

    i think it's the softly polkadotted cloud that rocks my world most: "is it inky?" we ask... "or there's a little mist on there?" NO! just the most subtly of patterns giving it extra added interest! you RULE the C&S, missus!!!!
