Yesterday Jack and I had our mommy and me day and Jack wanted to go to Kings Island again. No problem since we have the season passes. I am calling Jack " my little thrill seeker". He is really loving going on all the rides that he can at his height. He really wanted to go on the kid's hanging coaster but he needs to grow one more inch. So hopefully in the fall when we go--who knows. I pack our lunch so that we don't have to pay for anything inside the park because it costs a fortune for things.
When I heard about Jennifer's online card class I knew I had to sign up. I absolutely love her classes. She is such an awesome teacher and I know that I am very fortunate to have taken over 10 classes with her. This class has tons of inspiration. Here is this weeks color challenge.
I use a lot of blue and some orange but I rarely use pink or purple. Why??? I don't know. So when I saw this challenge I thought this was great. Here is my take on the color challenge.
I decided to go with a very clean look for the card, and I wanted to go with a more muted color palette. I used this design before with some jillibean soup and I loved the design and this was perfect for my new stamps that hubby got me from the boys.
1. First I ran the card through my cuttlebug and embossed it with the dots.
2. I stamped my images on neenah cardstock using a pink, purple, blue and orange inks from hero arts.
3. I then used my 1 inch circle punch and punched the images out.
4. I stamped one circle with the "hello' sentiment from paper trey ink and then arranged my circles on the card.
Very simple and very easy. I love how it turned out!

I hope everyone has a great day. I am heading out today for a "my day" and I am going down to Cincinnati to have lunch with my old roommate from my early 20's when we were first starting out. I can't wait. I then am going to pop into Archiver's. I was so excited when I got their email and they have a coupon--whoot whoot! I am on a spending freeze though right now so the item will have to be something awesome!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow!
