Thinking of You




Good Wednesday morning Peeps! It is day three of un-employment, I am already losing it. Yesterday I went to the grocery store with my shirt on backwards, probably has nothing to do with me being jobless, but what the heck!!!

Well, on to today's card. I made this one for the color challenge on Splitcoast. It was to use tangerine tango, kiwi kiss and riding hood red. All month is a salute to the retiring "in colors", altho there was an announcement on SU that said the More popular in colors could be making a reappearance sooner or later, I hope it is baja and my other favorite from the year before groovy guava. Love them both!!!

Anyway my card is started with a base of tangerine followed by whisper white and then riding hood red and some DS paper from the Haiku pack. The main image panel is made by sponging, blush blossom, pumpkin pie, tangerine and really rust. I used the grass from Inspired by Nature and stamped it with some basic gray ink. I highlighted a few stems with my white gel pen. I added some black brads and tangerine ribbon. The sentiment is a rub-on.

Well, that is it for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
