Color Inspiration Challenge

This is my first try at the color inspiration challenge posted by Kristina Werner.

I love this color combo! It also gave me a chance to use one of my new stamp sets. Of course, it's a Christmas set but I think the dove image can certainly be used year round.

Stamp Sets - Baroque Motif, Define Your Life, To You & Yours
Card Stock - Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink - Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip
Accessories - Ribbon and more ribbon!

Thank You!

One of my friends is expecting a boy. In addition to getting her a gift card, I decided to make her a set of thank you cards. You can never have too many of those, right ?!

Beate's Weekend Challenge

Beate's Weekend Challenge is back! I'm so glad because she is incredibly talented. This was a really cute sketch. I'm a little bummed because my order of new stamps has not arrived so I'm using the Bella Rose DS (again!) that I got with the catalog sneak preview.

I realized after I had everything done that I forgot one part of the sketch (the white rectangle). Oh well, I'll get it right next time!

Stamp Sets - Fabulous Flowers
Cardstock - Kiwi Kiss, Ridinghood Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Bella Rose DS
Ink - Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette

Note Pads

My office had a staff retreat at Cameron Park Zoo today (insert joke here). I made these note pads for everyone to take notes (or doodle)!
