Color Challenge Monday

Well it is Monday and only 29 shopping days until Christmas. I can’t believe we are so close. Where does the time go? It is time for our color challenge for the week. Candice and I enjoy doing them and I must say they are a challenge for us to come up with the colors. We hope you enjoy our cards this week.

I used this sketch from Twisted Chick’s blog to create my card.

Sketch Saturday by Candice

Well I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, my favorite was when dinner was all over and I got to have my slice of pumpkin pie. I have to say this was the first time that I ever made the whole dinner by myself and and it turned out really nice.
I found this sketch on a blog that I visit daily, www.iheart2stamp.com and I thought I would give this one a shot. Sorry it is a day late but my family all left today and I just could not find the time while they were here to go downstairs to design this card so I am posting it today. Have a lovely week 🙂

This would make a great Christmas gift for someone. The cost of the workshop is $15. If you are interested please e-mail Candice or myself so we can reserve your spot. Check back in a few days to see the cards to go with the tin.

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

I bet you were wondering if there would be a card today or not. Well I have been busy getting my stuffed ham fixed. It is on the stove and cooking. It should be done about 7:30 tonight and then I can hang it to drip. The house smells so good. I can’t wait to have some!!!

Here is my card for today. I started playing and just kept going. Hope you like it. Candice and I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! Check back in later this week to see what else we created.
