Happy Saturday, peeps! Hope your weekend is going well so far! I found this gorgeous color combo at Color Throwdown, and guess what---it uses that (ahem) sassy little Lemon Lime Twist! SO since I already had some cardstock on my desk, I went for it, combining it with the Mojo sketch:
Since these colors seemed so summery, I pulled out Day at the Beach and used it one more time; so sad it didn't make it into the big catalog! But here we go! I used Lemon Lime Twist, Summer Sun and Pool Party for my card:
My friend Dawn had a fun card here using strips of cardstock to create a background, so I used the challenge colors to create mine too....great technique! Then I stamped the images and colored them in with a blender pen, adding some enamel dots for fun:
Finally, I used a Paper Pumpkin sentiment from January 2017 and a couple of non-SU stitched dies:
I can handle Lemon Lime with these colors!!
I had a few responses to my Paper Pumpkin storage and cataloging question! One person suggested the Facebook page "Paper Pumpkin Fan Club"....you have to request to join, but I did find the dates of a few of the sets I was looking for. I think you can also search on Splitcoaststampers, which is also a treasure trove of information regarding just about every SU set! My new friend Lynn shared some photos of how she stores her sets, and says:
"I found the CD Case at Staples. (I've purchased the Paper Pumpkin kits from day one and all of them are in this case and there is still room.) I put each stamp set and the instructions from the kit into a small plastic sleeve that I purchased from Simon Says Stamps. I labeled each sleeve with the name of the kit and the corresponding date." If you want further information about her system, let me know! She is very organized!
Well, the outer construction is about done; new siding and roof will be put on next week:
Our bedroom originally ended where the diagonal lumber was....now we have lots more head room:
and a really big window to let in a nice cross breeze!!
Of course, we had to have a little mishap:
Yes, one of the carpenters slipped and came through the ceiling in the kitchen! Blessedly, he was okay, but he needed to be "extracted" by my nephew! And the ceiling was going to have to be cut in that area anyway! I was not home when it happened, I am sure I would have probably been frightened out of my wits!
And I finally got a cute photo of Cassidy at breakfast:
She wanted me to take this picture so she could put it in her diary...she is making it like a photo album! The caption she wrote: "I love eating breckfast AKA I LOVE EATING!" Too funny!
Enjoy your day, be blessed, and be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!
