Truly Scrumptious Challenge #12

Hello All, well I actually made it!!! I finally got to stamp after not stamping for quite some time. I was actually afraid I FORGOT how to do this lol. I have been so darn busy, I havent had the chance to stamp. I am so glad I got this made in time for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge tho.

This weeks challenge is a sketch designed by DT member Heather with the extra challenge of using beads. Since I have not stamped in a while, I havent had a chance to really use all the NEW Stampin Up In Colors, so for this challenge, I wanted to use the new Soft Suede. I dont know really how to define it, whether it is a brown or a green or a mix of both, but I did discover one thing about it. It is the PERFECT color to use with Basic Greys Infuse Collection. So that is what I did. I used the Soft Suede with Regal Rose and the Infuse collection and they fit sooooo well together.

So I am going to post the sketch here for you now and my card to go along and I will post all the additional details tomorrow. I am pretty tired now and still have to go to work tomorrow, boo hoo.

So here is the sketch to follow:

and here is my take on the challenge:

The stamp I did use is a new one to my made by Close to my Heart (oh no, no Stampin Up!!!).

Go check out the Truly Scrumptious Challenge blog NOW to see the rest of the DT's beautiful creations and to get all the juicy details on how to play. I will be back tomorrow and fill in the details here.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!!!

Abrams Falls

Yesterday, we hiked into Abrams Falls. It was a 5 mile roundtrip trek. Ok 5 miles isnt too bad huh? Well dont forget you have to to walk UP AND UP AND UP. But definately worth the effort. It was beautiful. We sat there and ate our lunch and I would have swam had I worn my bathing suit. You get pretty hot and sweaty climbing mountains lol.

We also bought our kitten a little friend from the Visitors Center. A little black bear about the same size as her. She LOVES him!!!

Make it a great day!!!! Time for lunch, Im starving!!!
