Squeak, Squeak...

What a great stamping weekend!  I was able to spend TONS of time in my stamping room and didn't neglect the chores I had to do either!!!  I was excited to ink up my newest stamps that arrived at my doorstep on Friday.  I spent all night cutting stamps so I could spend the weekend stamping...Boy...I'm happy about that! 

I've wanted this adorable mousey set "Mice Day" for so long.  I just love the character these adorable pets have and thought they would be so fun to color.  I love to color all kinds of fur babies and this was no exception!  Hope you enjoy!

The hostess with the mostest....

You've heard the old catchphrase "The hostess with the mostest" right? Well, today I'm joining other TAC Angels at PAPER WINGS for a little Hostess Set Hop... The Challenge: Use any Hostess Set from our current publications: The TAC Inspiration Book 2010-2011, The Fall Supplement, and SERENDIPITY Street Spring-Summer 2010.

So that got me to thinking....Have you Hostessed a TAC FUNSHOP lately? If so, what's your most FAVORITE Hostess Set? Which one do you think you'd NEVER earn enough to get but REALLY, REALLY want???

My most favorite set(s) have to be Hope Perches and Basic Blooms...I REALLY, REALLY Want Hedgehog Happiness!!! 

I thought I'd share a few special somethings with you today.  Hope you enjoy!
Level A:  Whoo Loves Ya?

Level A Basic Blooms and Level B Love You
This was created for Heather's Monday Sketch Challenge too!!!

You may consider joining up with others to group host a BIG BANG FOR YOUR BUCKS funshop. Hook up with a friend and you both just may get that set!

Here's the blogroll:

One Layer Color Throwdown #1...

Woo Hoo!  Last night I was on a quest to complete the One Layer Wonder challenge at The Angel Company's papercrafting community NING group.  I wanted to try to see if I could actually create a card with one layer.  That's a big feat for someone like me.  I love layers, sewing, embellishments and everything BUMPY...

BUT I DID IT!!!   YEAH!  I'm so excited.  Now, I guess I can at least feel that I did ADD ON to my card because I also incorporated my first color challenge...DOUBLE YEAH...so you can say I piled it on in another way, right? 

Here's my card:
So you want to know how I created this collage style card?  Well, it was simple really and I've created a PDF tutorial.  If you would like a copy of the directions (with photos), please post a comment and I'd be happy to pass it along to you.  If you reply, please have a way for me to get in contact with you so I can send the PDF in an email...

Can't wait to see what these colors have inspired in you!!!  Don't forget to post your creation on the original Challenge Post HERE.

Up for a challenge?

If you LOVE challenges like I do, I've got a fun challenge for you...I'm creating some color challenges and I found a wonderful site that I'm using to pull colors from... This site is AWESOME!!!  It gives Pantone color combinations and a whole slew of other colorways...even colorblind schemes...so...I pulled some yummy colors from the wheel and turned them into a challenge! 

On the 12th of each month, I'll post a color challenge right here.  All you have to do is create something using these colors, upload your photo to the inlinkz on my blog and cross your fingers. The following color challenge post will announce the winner AND the new challenge!  Sound like fun?

Here's this month's challenge:

OK..Deelish color palate right?  Now I'm off to create a project using this palate...Such a fun quest to search for just the right papers, inks, stamps...MMMMMMM...

PS...There's a sneaky TAC surprise in it for the winner...Mummmssss the word........Now get stampin!  I'll be back sometime tomorrow to post my fabby creation...
