Keesh's Inkspiration Colour Challenge #12

Is it just me or did August just race by???? It only seems like yesterday that Keesh asked me to be her Guest DT for August - and now here's my last post - or it was meant to be before Keesh needed last week off - too much partying on the Incentive Trip methinks - LOL!!! Only joking Keesh - I know how sore your poor foot is!

I do seem to have been chasing my tail a bit lately - but it was SOOO much fun to be a part of Keesh's team - and thanx soo much to Keesh and the regular DT girls , past and present, for welcoming me aboard. If you don't know who they are you have been missing some awesome talent - so here's a link to them all...
and the lovely Karen, who has retired from the team but is an amazing talent, and a lot of fun!!!

Now onto this week's challenge!!!

There's a funny story to my card - and my sister will have a good laugh when she sees it!!! I was on the phone to my sister (she was on loudspeaker so I could keep working - we chat a LOT - LOL), when I was "playing" with the colours and trying to choose a stamp set to use. WELL - I was having all sorts of problems, the cold I had just wasn't helping my brain function. I wasn't happy with how anything was working out and Sharon was trying to make suggestions sight unseen! In a fit of angst I told her I was done, and maybe I should just put EVERYTHING I had done on the card!! We had a laugh and I decided to walk away from it for a bit. After picking my daughter up from school I popped into my desk and saw all the bits lying together - and thought "why not!" - so I DID use all the bits I was working on and came up with this!!! And I actually quite like it - LOL.

The Stamp sets I've used are Circle Circus, A Kind Word, Embrace Life and Short & Sweet. The DP is from the Windsor Knot series.

Thanx again for all of your kind words and support during my time on Keesh's team!

Oh Debbie ... how can you make such a mix of sets/images look soooo great??? If I tried this ... mine would look like a dog's breakfast!!! Tricky colours ... but you have done a gorgeous job!!! And ... I had to laugh at the talking on loud speaker ... I am always so frustrated when someone rings me when I am stamping!!! I just don't want to be interrupted!!! So ... I always put on loud speaker too! Hope you had a nice lunch out! xxx

Isn't it just the best when things fall together like that? This is such a great card! I love the stamped background piece... and that image is just as cute as can be! You nailed the color challenge!

I wish we could talk on the phone for hours!

I hope you're feeling better now. Just think, spring is here (for you!).
