Finally a Post!!! CCMC102

Sorry again, seems like I'm always apologizing lately for not posting!!! This is a tough time of year with baseball & summer chores. And, I've been sorting out my stamp room to deal with all the changes! Retiring colors + stamps + accessories = MESS!!! My room is always organized chaos, but it's a little worse than normal at the moment making it a little tough to stamp! I have successfully pulled my retiring colors and added folders for the new colors though. Ink pads are sorted, just need to pull out the retiring. And I've started sorting through stamp sets. But the even better news is I have in my possession NEW items!! Colors, sets, ribbon! YEAH!!

The first card up tonight is for the Create with Connie & Mary weekly challenge. The challenge this week is a color one, and here is what we were given.

And here is what I came up with. I changed up the colors a bit because I've already retired my retiring colors!

My colors: Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi & Daffodil Delight. Background is textured with the Square Lattice folder. The image is from the Very Thankful set, the Ronald McDonald set of the current catalog. What a great cause that set supports! I've neglected it this year, but decided I needed to at least get the set so $2 goes to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

The turtle was stamped on Whisper White with Jet Black Stazon. I colored him with blender pens and Classic ink. No markers yet in all these new colors. The ribbon you see behind the turtle is the Daffodil Delight in the NEW 1/8" Taffeta ribbon.

Simple & Sweet!!! Don't miss your chance to own this Very Thankful set!! Time is running out!!
