Stamping with Stephanie

In the nick of time!



I almost forgot about the color challenge today. I had to pack up the china cabinet after playing softball tonight. Hopefully, I will have a beautiful living room/dining room after this weekend. My husband has done his part. I need to step up to the plate and get my tush in gear to make the curtains (or maybe pay someone to do it)! Anyway, back to the color challenge. I loved the colors in Kristina's inspiration but when push came to shove I had a difficult time. The colors were; black, pumpkin pie, rose red and green galore. At least I got to try out my new Sizzix Big Shot! I love it! The flowers and leaves were from the birds and blossoms die! I used the Baroque Basics for the background and I'm embossed with clear EP. I wasn't thrilled with the outcome at first but it is starting grow on me. Enjoy. Thanks for checking it out! I need to go to bed. I've got a long weekend with the kids in the mountains!
