I have been stamping and scrapbooking for the past 10 years. It is my favorite hobby and I sure do miss it when life gets way too busy. I have 3 amazing children, and a wonderful, supportive husband.

Finally Posting!!

Good Afternoon Everyone, I finally got a chance to play with the splitcoast challenges. I made a very simple card, not feeling myself today. I think I might be getting some kind of stomach virus. Well, I combined yesterday's color challenge cc218, and today's sketch challenge sc228. These colors again were very different and bright. I did enjoy both challenges. Here's what I came up with! Hope you like it!!

Here's the recipe

Trendy Trees Set
Really Retro
Kiwi Cardstock
Summer Sun Cardstock
Misc. SU Dp
Ribbon and Ribbon Slide
Kiwi Ink
Only Orange Ink
Summer Sun Ink

I am soooo excited I will be giving away my goodies plus an extra stamp.. I can't believe I have 181 followers as of today.. I will be drawing the lucky winner's name early Friday morning and will post first thing the winner. So May 14th is the cut off. I will have to come up with some fun and creative stuff for my followers and for sure will be checking all your blogs out!!! Thanks again for playing along!
