I missed a few!

Sunday, February 27, 2011

I had plans for doing several challenges this past week but I missed out on some of them.  That might have something to do with the fact that one of my little girls had a birthday a week ago, and one yesterday.  And maybe just a little bit with my thinking I can get a lot more done than reality allows!  But that last one is only a slim possibility.  =)))

One of the challenges I was able to finish a card for is The Color Throwdown #130.  I'm really excited about this challenge blog because they choose Stampin' Up! colors for the challenge.  Since 80% of my paper stash and all my inks are SU!, that makes it easy for me.  Except for this time because I had no DPs in those colors!!  What did I do?  Made a mad dash to the local (40 miles one way) scrapping stores!!  But forgot to bring SU! color swatches.  Thankfully there were enough choices I hit pretty close with what I chose.  I'm pleased with the result.  And with the fact that two of my teenage daughters joined me in making cards with these colors.  I'm only entering mine in the challenge, but I've included pics of theirs here, too.

Here is mine!
