Color My World!

First of all let me just say WHOO HOO THANK YOU! To Cath from Moxie Fab World for selecting one of my cards in the "Around the House Challenge" I was so excited to see my card selected - makes me all giggly and giddy :0) And a second THANK YOU to everyone that left such sweet comments. It's so weird and fun to have such sweet blogging buddies that you truly appreciate and care about but have never even met! You all are just wonderful!

Last night my youngest son was up to his eyeballs in homework - Kindergarten homework! And is probably the norm with Kindergarten homework, it involved lots and lots of coloring. He wasn't too happy about it. Apparently there were soo many more important things he could have been doing! So, I thought it might make things a little better and less traumatic if while he was doing his coloring homework, I would sit beside him and do some coloring myself. . .

I LOVE to color! I find it relaxing, rewarding and just plain ol' fun!! This first card used some Unity rubber that hadn't seen ink yet! Unbelievable, I know! These teapots are actually two different stamps but they look so cute together don't ya think?

This second card uses an image by Anna Wight for Whipper Snapper. That girl has a way with chickens, I tell you. Too stinkin' cute! I gave him some polka dots with a white gel pen. The ribbon is some yumy new stuff from Stampin Up! and the pp is from October Afternoon.

Finally, this last little card was a smorgasboard of stamps! The turtle is from Unity, the cupcake was a Michael's dollar bin purchase and the sentiment was from ??? I'm sure it's on the block of wood, but can't think of it right now.

As you can see I was in a Not Quite Navy mood last night. I think it was mostly because the paper was already cut, it was lying right in front of me and it just seemed to go well with the colors I chose to color in the images with.

Well, my son eventually got his homework done (with a little help from mom - I just couldn't resist :0) And I got a chance to get some "fun-work" done too!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a wonderful colorful weekend!
