Creating For Me

I apologize for my absence lately.  It seems as though I've only been posting projects on the days I "have to" for my Design Team responsibilities.  I realized that last night, and decided that I was just going to make a card FOR ME; just because I WANTED TO!  So, I sat down and this is what I came up with.  I made a card and a little paper mache box.
 My card was made using the color scheme suggested in the following challenge using some of my stamps from JustRite Stamps.  I've been a long-time fan of their gorgeous stamps and die-cuts, and so...I couldn't resist joining in on this one:

JustRite Stampers Challenge Blog - Challenge #091 - A Colour Challenge (yellow, medium grey, charcoal grey)

I'm also entering these fun challenges:

Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenges - That Stamp You Just LOVE, But Don't Use Nearly Enough!!!  Unfortunately, that would include most all of my stamps.  But for this one, I used a stamp from JustRite.

Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello.   I hope you're having a great weekend of crafting, relaxing, family and fun.  I look forward to visting your blog to see what you've been creating.
 
Blessings to you,
Karen

  6. Adorable little set, love the grey and yellow together. I think grey is hard to work with and yellow is a nice color with it.
