So guess what? I was nominated 3 times for this fun award again.
Who started these awards, I would like to know! Cause they sure are an ego booster, so let me go back through my emails and tell you who nominated me:
– in no particular order. I was probably supposed to do it right away, but I have been busy working on classes, challenges, swaps, laundry, only a little cooking, but seems I go-go-go, so I wanted to thank you girls for nominating me. I am supposed to nominate other bloggers, but I just did this last week or so I think, so am I bad if I don't? Will I be kicked out of blog-dome? Will the
boogiebloggerman come and get me in the middle of the night? I hope not.
So if you want to check out any blogs that I frequent, please look to the right under Blogs To Drop In On as I have some links over there, check any of them out, and you won't be disappointed. Big hugs to Tabitha, Regina and Beckie!
So I wanted to try out a Kristina Werner challenge and I love, love, love these colors, they remind me of Neapolitan ice-cream, I remember growing up outside of Lucan Ontario, and my sister Jacqui and I would bike over to play at Janet and Carol's house and the lady that lived with them to help their Dad out, cause their Mum had passed away, would let us eat ice-cream, and I know Neapolitan was one but also just plain strawberry, and I remember it tasting so good, and its funny how things don't taste like they used to ya know. Too many preservatives and fake stuff in them I guess…or maybe my taste buds are just gettin' old.
Anyway here is the color challenge #20 that was posted, and my card:
Stamp Set: Sock Monkey and Sock Monkey Accessories, All Holidays
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Sweet Always DSP, Green Tea DSP, watercolor paper
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze
Misc: Gel pen, Tiny Bubble Cuttlebug folder, crafters tool kit for stitching, aqua painter
I wish there was a single egg in the set too, or I had a set with a single egg cause I would have liked to mount one beside the greeting, but it will have to do. Pearls, and buttons did not look right, so I left it as is…but that spot screams for something….I know it screams for Ice-Cream!!!!! The old good stuff!
I hope you like it, I have never done one of Kristina's challenges before.
Have a super Thursday, and thanks for stopping in!
