CR84FN18

Hi everyone! It's a gloomy Sunday here in New York. I hope it doesn't rain that much later on. I have a card for this week's CR84FN18 challenge. Whew! Orange and yellow together...not my usual colors...but then that's why they call it a challenge right?! And after seeing Heather and Mona's cards, of course I have to try and make one myself! Here's the color combo for this week.



Here's my card. I used some of my new PTI stamps again this morning. I'm having so much fun with them. I just feel that I'm not using them to their full capacity. It's always a matter of imagination and mojo. Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot of mojo this morning. I'm hoping for more tonight so I can post a few more cards before the week begins.

Have you gone on over to Stacey's Stamping Stage? If you haven't yet, there's some sad news over there. Stacey has finally decided to close the Curtains of Curtain Call Challenge. After giving everyone so much inspiration every Sunday, it's such a sad thing for a lot of people. I'm a little sad too. Curtain Call Challenge was my first ever DT spot. I was so nervous but grateful at the same time when Stacey asked me to join her team. She believed in me even when I was dubious about my capabilities. I wouldn't be where I am now without that belief. Thanks Stacey!

  1. oh, you are working the orange today!! Love the button card peeking out! I too was so sad to hear Stacey's challenge is shutting down...it was definitely a favourite, but I can only imagine how much time it takes...that's what happens when something becomes a hit!! So now I can move onto to some other ones ...thanks for helping me out!!

  5. Your are so bad for my wallet! LOL! Loving the button card layered with the Mat Stack, it just goes to show that you don't have to use it for buttons. I wish I could have gotten the Mat Stack 4 Collection, too, since I have the others. There's always next month!

    Love the way you toned down the bright colors to fit your style. Beautifully done!
