Emily, the regular host of the color challenge at SCS is off having a ROCKIN good time at CHA, so she asked for volunteers to host this weeks color challenge. Since I have ALWAYS wanted to host one, I jumped at the offer and she said OK!! YAYYY!! I am super duper excited, and I got a big ol box of Stampin Up goodies today, so I was anxious to use them. I still haven't placed a new catalog order, I am waiting for Saleabration, but I had some stuff I wanted to get before it all retired, and the Bella Blossoms set FINALLY made it into my hot little hands....YAYY!! I have been LONGING for this set ever since it came out, and have just now FINALLY broke down and bought it....and I couldn't be happier!! I stamped the flower three times, once in Pacific Point for the base of the flower, once with Baja Breeze and some Pacific Point on the edges, and once with Garden Green for the stem. I used some Muirfield DSP and LOTS of SU ribbon. The sentiment(my new favorite way to do them if you haven't noticed) was created using my tag punches from SU and the middle sized oval. This card is about as close to SUO as I get, but those spiral clips...they are my weakness....like you didn't know!! Anyway, I HOPE you all play along...I can't wait to see what you create!!

So, I haven't mentioned it yet, but my blogaversary is in 3days!! Yayyy me!!! Stay tuned for BLOG CANDY!! Last night was the Paper Pretties release party and we had a BLAST!! Lots of prizes were given out and I think we made a lot of new friends!!! The new sets are ready to order, so if you haven't ordered them yet, better get going!! I gotta tell ya, I am IN love this this new Flirty Fortunes set...even though I can't color a fortune cookie to save my life, LOL!! I made this card as a sample for the party using Jen's SFYTT. I finally broke out my Haiku DSP and paired it with More Mustard and Tangerine Tango(totally makes me want chinese food...yummy tangerine chicken and eggrolls...yummm). The ribbons are both from SU, and I used my new Pinking Circles Nesties from Cut at Home. Super cute huh!! Better get going, Jared is here and he is not always very happy to come back on Mondays...I think he misses his mommy!! Poor kid, bet she misses him too. Here is some BABY EYE CANDY for ya!!!
