Color challenge and Card #1 from the highway.

Here is the color challenge. Use pink, orange, and white. The inspiration is a dinner plate I saw at Casa de Fruta in Hollister, California.


Here is my first card made in a hotel room during my “Day Job”. I’m not over the moon with it but it is cute. The Colorbok paper is really not suitable for card stock – in my opinion. It is not heavy enough for my liking, but it is doing well for now.


A little tip. Wal-Mart doesn’t sell acrylic blocks for stamping. I purchased an acrylic wallet size clear frame and used it to do my stamping. It works 😀




I thought I was buying a black ink pad from the Studio G bin at Wal-Mart. I have no idea what color it is, except I do know it isn’t black.

Here is my “haul” from Wal-Mart plus Joe asked the hotel clerk where a craft store was nearby. He found a Michaels and I got a couple things from there.













Have fun with the challenge. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

      Thanks Sis. Getting used to a new paper trimmer has a learning curve :-). Plus my card making skills are not the greatest but getting better.

      I appreciate your kind words. And I appreciate you.

      Love you Sis

      I can only speak for myself and no one else. Carissa says I’m like an ostrich and it is so true.

      Ostriches peck at shiny things and want to eat them. I see something pretty or new-fangled and I have to have it. No self control 😀

      I didn’t think the colors would work well and have been pleasantly surprised.

      Love you – Leslie
