Color Throwdown Challenge #345

Hello everyone....hope all is well with you!!! We have had a couple of sunny days this week without rain!!! I'm sure we will be praying for rain come August and September when it's over 100 degrees for days on end but right now, it's kinda nice to walk outside and feel the sun, not rain!!! We went to our grandson Cole's project presentation Monday and this morning we have our granddaughter Caitlyn's awards program...tomorrow we have Cole's graduation from the 5th grade and then our summer starts with a bang!! Cole is moving in for a few weeks and his sister, Autumn will follow in a week or so.  When the other grands hear they are in town, we will have a house full...oh boy...I better start taking my Geratol...LOL!!! Anyway.... It's Wednesday and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Wanda is our hostess and she has picked  some bold and beautiful colors for us to play with!!!

I played with some old but well loved stamps this week...the fern is from the Flourishes Ferns and Fiddles set. It was stamped with Pear Pizzazz and the butterfly is from the Stampin Up! set called Bliss Butterfly. It was stamped with Memento Lady Bug and splatters were done with the same ink. 

The sentiment is from Lots to Say by Reverse Confetti and the corner stamp is from Postcards From Paris by Technique Tuesday. The enamel dots finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD345 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd345 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.

Wonderful card and I love that sentiment. It reminds me of a children's book that I used to read to our son. You've created lots of great projects since my last visit too. The fish one definitely made me smile.

Beautiful card Joan, and I love that sentiment.

So beautiful! I have always loved that fern stamp and hate that Flourishes is no longer in operation. Sounds like a non-stop summer for you! Sounds also like you're a popular grammy! :-)

I LOVE the mix of stamps you used here Joan, for this great collage-y look! Beautiful creation!

Lori said...

Your collage style stamping is fabulous, Joan! Perfect with these colors. Rest up for your time with your grands--sounds like you'll need it!
