Color Inspiration Challenge #54

I love all the colors for Kristina's color inspiration but seriously, these challenges are getting well...challenging. I struggle each and every time I see which colors she has chosen. I think my brain is just on overdrive and sometimes in dealing with everyday struggles I find it hard to think.
I have a few birthdays coming up so I thought i would make birthday cards instead of my typical Thank You cards.

Happy Birthday
I had a hard time finding teal paper. That's one color that I don't have in my stash of paper/cardstock.

Anyways... I can't believe that half the year is almost over. I received an invite to go to a 'Christmas in July' card making party. What the heck!! Christmas already!

Have a great week!!

Color Inspiration Challenge #53

Isn't that a cute pic? I love his "mom" shirt! This weeks challenge from Kristina used the colors of his little robot. I really love his little robot. I wasn't sure how to incorporate the black with the other colors. But then I remembered that I had a robot stamp I bought from Paper Source and I also needed to make more thank you cards and I combined the two and came up with this card.

Doomo Arigato Mr. Roboto

Yes, it's from that Styx song. I got to use my 'Doomo Arigato' stamp and my copics. I'm still learning how to use the copics. I have a 'stamping phobia' but using the copics makes stamping more fun.
Monday is Memorial Day and for those of you who don't have to work...Enjoy your day off!!

Color Inspiration Challenge #52

Here is my card for Kristina's challenge.

I found this really cool wood grain stamp and used to stamp and emboss the background. I really like the effect and it even looked like wood. Felt like wood too!
I had a hard time with these colors. I wanted to use green.

Lately I've been making a lot of Thank You cards. The past few weeks (months) I've been dealing with some health issues and received so many flowers, gifts, leave donations and well wishes.
I went to Starbucks to get a couple of g/c and I loved the new g/c they have. I used the same colors that were in the g/c and used my new Quickutz die. Love that funky tree and that bird.
I must be on a bird kick because the past few cards I've made had birds on them.

Thank You
Maybe it's Emma rubbing off on me. Everyday for the past 2 weeks she has caught a bird or lizard and brought it into the house to show me. I have found many dead little sparrows in the middle of my living room floor, under my desk and even a bird feathers in my scrap room. I hate playing hide and go seek with Emma and her little friends. The other day I found a couple of lizards walking around the kitchen. One of them, the size of Godzilla, crawled under the stove. Emma is so good at catching creatures that one day she brought me a humming bird!

Color Inspiration Challenge #51

Just another quick card for Kristina's challenge.
I planned on making a Mother's Day card, but I really needed a bunch of thank you cards so I thank you cards instead. I'm still loving that Top Note die cut.

thank you

Color Inspiration #50

I made a quick card for Kristina's challenge. It will probably be a while before I post again so I wanted to make a simple card.

Happy Birthday
I bought the Stampin Up! Top Note sizzix die and I really love it. I can see myself making a mini book using this die.

Enjoy your day and have a great weekend!
