Changes and New Cards

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. It was beautiful but very hot here in SC. I spent Saturday afternoon shopping with my mom and my daughter. I need a dress for a formal shin-dig DH and I have next week. It's funny, I don't go to the mall too often and I'm always excited when I least for the first 20 minutes! Then I'm ready to go home. I'm just not a big crowd kind of person. Perhaps it was living overseas in Okinawa for 3 years where the best shopping (the only good shopping) was done online. I did, however, make my way to Joann's and got some really cute paper and played around with it yesterday morning before church. The card I made with this paper is the good luck card and it's also my submission for the Stamp Something Challenge this week. Be sure to visit the site and upload your card for the challenge this week to be entered for scrumptious blog candy! I used Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Certainly Celery and a piece of silver paper for the colors. I love these colors together. The friendship card that I've posted is actually a card made by friend Kendra. I thought it was super cute and wanted to share it with all of you.
Today is "Try a New Technique" on SCS. This week's TLC 171 challenge is "the whole enchilada" where you have to create an assortment of 3x3 cards, the envelopes and a box for them to go in. I think it's a fabulous idea; but unfortunately won't have a chance to do today. Perhaps later in the week.
Ok, so I'm off to be creative. Although, I do have company coming this evening, so I may have to be creative between vacuuming and cleaning the bathrooms!
I am sure you noticed that I've changed the template for my blog for the month of June. I decided to go with blue in honor of all the dads for Father's Day. I also chose blue because it was my father's favorite color and since this will be my first father's day without him, I thought it a simple way to honor his memory.

Have a fabulous day everyone, and thanks for visiting with me

Beautiful cards! I love what you did with our sketch challenge, fun colors and love the butterfly. The silver really pops with the blue and greens. Have fun using more of your new papers. Thanks for playing along with our challenge. :)
