JAI #138 Colour Challenge

When I saw this weeks JAI challenge I made it top of my list of things to do to play along!! What a wonderful arrange of colours to make something with.... I was EXCITED!!!
As our little one has decided to "rock" on longer in the comfort of my tummy I decided to go and stamp at my dear friends (Leith's home. She has a monthly stamping time on the last Friday of the month) yesterday and took the challenge colours with me.
I had recently ordered some new "wish list" sets and so I inked up "Postage Due" for the challenge! The children happily played and I happily stamped... what a super way to spend a sunny Friday.
Here is what I came up with:

I added shimmer paint and spritzed it too in the Summer starfruit and grey. I'm loving my new big shot die "lattace" and the new faceted buttons and the white bakers twine!! Oh and see that lovely stitched ribbon... Well for the month of October you can earn that for FREE when you place a $60 order! All the wonderful in-colour ribbons..... so yummy!!
Thanks for popping over and saying Hi! I hope you like my take on this weeks challenge, do make sure you check out the JAI blog, I'm telling you those ladies are talented to the max and you'll be sure to see something to get your creative juices flowing!!
Enjoy the weekend,

That little one is sure to come along when you least expect them to. I am so glad you got to craft at your friends as you made a lovely card, love the faceted button on ribbon, must get some of those myself. Thanks also for your lovely comments Sharnee on the JAI team, they are a great bunch to work with and good friends.

Hi Sharnee, yeh for as little extra stamping time. Just loved how enthusiastic you were about the colours and it shows in the end result too. Love your mix of vintage and almost retro modern. Just bet the shimmer looks gorgeous :) Will be thinking of you, sending hugs and best wishes!
