I made this card for Sarah Moore, who has broken her foot … in TWO places!!! How awful!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ If you get a chance, go over and wish her well. ๐Ÿ˜€daisy-get-well

My inspiration came from 3 places today. First the Sketch Challenge on the Planet – SK031409 (hosted by Tammy YaHoo!). Second, from Color Throwdown #33 – CTD33 and third, from Sarah’s foot cast! Sarah’s cast is bound to make anyone smile!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I sure hope you mend quickly, Sarah ... and aren’t going too crazy from not being able to drive!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Monday KSCrew Challenge – Take 2

Yes, same card, different look.

I wanted another version of yesterday’s card (Lori’s KS Crew Challengemulti-step stamping using no flowers), that I felt was more suitable to a male, since the first one was better suited for a female. ๐Ÿ˜€

Monday in the Kitchen with another Crew Challenge

bw-lori-flower-with-nameAre you in the mood to do some 3 Step stamping today? I am! ๐Ÿ˜€

Todayโ€™s Crew Challenge is hosted my KS Crew member, Lori Tecler!!!

Lori’s Challenge: It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 -with a twist. For this challenge, let’s show off some of the non-floral multi-step images from Kitchen Sink Stamps. Apples, hearts, shells, bells, hula girls, and baseballs–they’re all fair game for this challenge.

Here is mine. Thank you Lori … you know how I love to multi-step stamp! ๐Ÿ˜€

PLUS, thank you all for the great comments and emails for the โ€œRoses – Color Recipeโ€ for the 3 Step Hearts & Roses. Here is another Color Recipe for the Teddy Bear from 3 Step Get Well Teddy.
