I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Happy Thanksgiving, Sweet Sunday and Curtain Call Color Challenges

Happy Halloween evening all,

I'm so happy because I had time to stamp today. I made four cards that I will be posting throughout this coming week. The first card up is one I made for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenges.

For this card, I pulled out a very old Stampin' Up set. It's fun to look through my bookcase and find a set that I've not used in forever. It's almost like using something new. Karen's sketch is perfect for this oldie and goodie, as is Stacy's fall colors. For coloring, I've mostly been using Copics lately. For this card, I pulled out my aqua painter and did some water coloring. I added a hint of blue wash around the  whole image for contrast.
