Color Challenge, Mojo 102, Mudder's Teapot Tuesday, and Taylor's Cupcake Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone....hope you are having a great day!!! All is well here in my little corner of the world. My DH is getting the boat ready for a trip this weekend...the boys are going to fish and the girls will be shopping at Canton's First Monday Flee Market.... over 100 acres of stuff....whoohoo!!!
Today's Color Challenge on Splitcoast features three of Stampin Up's new in colors: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry.
I used the Mojo 102 Sketch for the layout, the Wings of Friendship images were stamped with all the challenge colors, cutout, and layered with dimensionals. Ribbon, hardware, and silver pearls finish it off.
Stamps: Wings of Friendship
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Corner Hardware, Silver Pearls, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Nestabilities, Punches

What a great day for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday....we are all going to Africa for a rock concert!!!!!!!! There is a catch, though....since Mr. and Mrs. Zebraliski are paying for the trip we have to try to talk their Rock Star son, Zeke, into taming down his wild look. Awwww, Jeeezzzz....wouldn't ya know it!!! Well, I'll just have to sneak in the back door with all the animals because I am not going to talk young Zeke into wearing such boring clothes...ya gotta have a little spice in your life, right?????? Don't tell the Mudder I said that!!!!
Anyway...if you want a fun time...don't look on the bathroom wall for a number....instead, check out the Muddermarks blog for all the deets!!!!
I also used the sketch from Taylored Expressions Cupcake sketch challenge #80.
Edit: OOPS!!!! I just noticed I left one of the backs to a dimensional behind the lion....yikes...looks like he just pooped!!!!! Don't tell the Mudder about that either!!!!

Stamps: Imaginisce Snag 'em Stamps, Sentiment from Unity's June KOM
Paper: White, Black, Glitz dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard
Accessories: Ribbon, Zebra Staple, Nestabilities
Thanks for visiting today....hope you day is SUPER special!!!!

These are both so wonderful, Joan!! Love the bright colors on the first card, and the second is just so cute with all those animals!

You kill me posting two beautiful cards together - how can I possibly remember to comment on specifics of each one once I move to the comment box (with my CRS issue!?!?!LOL!)

well - the colors and bird are lovely on the first one - and the animals and DP's are super on the Muddermark card!

I'm off to make mine - I just got home from dinner with Anne Harmon - what a great night we had - I don't think we stopped talking for 1 second for two hours!! I'll post a couple of pics soon!

Hope you had a fabulous day at Canton!! I have many wonderful memories of First Mondays in the fall!!

Awwww, your aminals are so cute!!! (said in my best imitation of my youngest son.) And I didn't even notice the "poop" until you pointed it out! :-D I LOVE your bird card. That is so FABULOUS! Your white background is perfect for those colors. Nicely put together!
