I Llike You (CTD416)

Hey, hey friends! I've had SO much fun this month guesting for the Color Throwdown Challenge. YAY! It's nice to be crafting again for a challenge. Maybe I will just keep doing it.

This week, the colors scream fall. Oh, I need fall to be here weather wise. I'm sipping hot cocoa as I type this blog post....
Here is my take on the colors:
You know me - anytime I have a chance to use teal and red, I'm alllllll over it. These little llamas from MFT are soooo stinkin cute! I kept them simple and just inked them brown.

I hope you will join us this week and play along. Thanks for having me this month! xo

Tomorrow Is A New Day

I have been dying to use these WPlus9 Amaryllis for quite some time now. They have been patiently sitting in my "to be used pile" since they were released and I finally got the chance to color these gorgeous flowers yesterday for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Something New. The product highlight is Wplus9 so it was perfect! The sentiment is also WPlus9. The silver hummingbird is a Memory Box die. The frame die is My Favorite Things.
I hope you all are having a fabulous start to the new year and if not, well...tomorrow is a new day! xo.
