Inkspirations Colour Challenge #17

I've had time to actually see a challenge (see them all the time and want to play along) and then DO IT!!!! YAY! YAY! YAY!
My wonderful, super Husband has taken our precious older kiddies to the Hadspen river for a water ski and swim and I'm here at home whilst Esther is snoozing making cards and posting them!! YAY! YAY! YAY!!
So here is the challenge from the lovely Keesh.

Everyone, well nearly everyone struggles with Cameo coral, for me I've been using it for ages, I really like it (along with last years Groovy gava!!) I even have tops and cardies in this cool colour so I was excited to play along! I do have to say though that my cards (yes I made TWO!!) are very, VERY simple! I've come to the realization that this is ok, at least I'm joining in!!
So I needed some House warming cards and with the super fab new "neighbours" set that Stampin Up! are releasing as of tomorrow with the SALE-A-BRATION promo. When you spend $100 or more on cool SU products you can get one for FREE!!! There are 4 new sets to choose from and if you're anything like me you'll want them all! :0)

I did mention that they're simple, though I did manage to create 2 different looks with just a few changes. Can you spot the difference?? He he! Yes I know it's easy, but which one do you prefer?

Inside this one I stamped "home sweet home". And the way I did the choc "twine" in the button is with some very thin chocolate chip card stock, you just tread it through like you would normal ribbon and presto you have co-ordinating ribbon! I got this niffty trick from the super talented Sarah Klass 2 years ago at Convention!
So there you have it, I participated!! Probably wont win the awesome prize up for grabs but I'm content in knowing that I played along!!!
What I'd like to do next is the Just add ink challenge and the new Embellish challenge!!

Time Sharnee, all I need is some "free" time!
Love and Smiles
Me :0)

I really, really like these! They're simple but full of charm (I'm not good at creating simple, so I raise my hat to those who can!). I think my fave is the first because I like the fiber with the button :)
