Sorry about my lack of blogging, but it's been a whirlwind the past few days. Yesterday, we spent the day at the Minnesota State Fair. Our state fair is known for all different kinds of food on a stick. Here are some examples: Eggroll on a stick, Pizza on a stick, Pickles on a stick (one of my faves), Alligator on a stick (hubby tried that one a few years back), deep fried Snickers on a stick and SO much more!!!!
So, today as I am dragging my tush a little (got home after midnight), I realized that I missed my Blogger's Challenge. Oops!!! Sorry girls!!! I ran downstairs to make a card for a party we are attending later tonight. Our friend next door is turning 50, and his family is throwing him a surprise party.
This week's challenge is a color challenge. The colors are Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, More Mustard and Ruby Red. The stamp set was an easy choice. I grabbed my new "Cheers to You". What guy wouldn't be happy with a mug of beer on a hot summer day?
This card is pretty self-explanatory so I won't get into any major details. I do want to point out that adding Crystal Effects on the beer mug just makes it so more extra special.
Here's the recipe:
stamp sets: Cheers to You, Canvas
paper: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Confetti White
ink: Black StazOn, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard
accessories: Choc Chip wide grosgrain, Old Olive narrow grosgrain, Crystal Effects, aquapainter, circle punches (1 1/4" and 1 3/8"), sponges, dimensionals, markers, Crafter's Tool Kit
I'm going to go soak my blistered feet in a nice warm tub.....I encourage you to take a look at all the other Blogger's Challenge projects this week. Simply click on the Blogger's Challenge icon on the right side of my blog. Until tomorrow...Happy Stamping everyone!!!
