Good Morning!! Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown. Wanda picked the colors this week and I went a little retro :)
Those flowers are fabulous... I think she made them???
Here's my card....
Playing with some stamps and dies from the recent Verve release!! AND I am a coffee fanatic... so this Coffee set was perfect!! Surprised I didn't find a way to sneak in the new Coffee die.... honestly I pondered on it!! Do you know how many times I get in the elevator with folks who work in our building... and I yawn...or someone else does.... immediate response... "time for a cup of coffee"

Hey, glad you stopped by!! Today is the second installment for this month's Serendipity Stamps Challenge... Summer's Last Hurrah!!
I'm so happy to squeeze out another summer card....
This year Mary is giving the DT an "extra" challenge- this week we were asked to use a personal photo as inspiration...
I chose this picture of some of the seashells we have collected in the Gulf of Mexico. My parents spent the winter in Naples, FL for years and dad had a large boat.... we even did some fishing in the gulf... 26 miles out, if the weather was good... but, we always went on day trips "shelling"!!
The whelk in the picture is pretty faded from the ocean- I do have some with fabulous color. So, I chose this fabulous shell image from Serendipity Stamps Whelk Shell. It was stamped in a tropical color-layered with crumbcake.... do you feel the sand squishing between your toes?! Added the die cut sentiment Imagine. Love to layer these sentiments in complimentary colors!! The background border is the border frame from Floral Frames.

Hoping you'll play... there are prizes :)
are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on
your submission and the theme of Summer's Last Hurrah. You don't have to have a
blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery.
I'm thrilled the Waltzingmouse PJ parties are back!!
There are 4 challenges... I managed to do three. This challenge was to "dust off" your old Christmas images and make a card. I have to admit this image isn't "too old" and I do have some older images but...... I bought the dies for the lamp set and never got to use them... so "old enough"?
I'll be back later with the final card I was able to get done.
I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch for the layout.
Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
