color inspiration 35

Ok, so it's become very sad that the last couple posts have been for Kristina's color inspirations and hey, here's another one, ha! I DO need to find more time to stamp so I can post more for you. The good news is I'm DONE shopping for Christmas, so I don't need to worry about going out in the morning for that anymore. Thank goodness because it's a balmy -4 as I'm typing this. Nothing like walking out into cold weather that makes your lungs hurt! To be fair, it is 10 PM, so it's not like it's -4 at noon, but it didn't get past 5 today, so that's still stinkin' COLD!


Mr. Brown battled the snow-packed streets and delivered my new toys today, yeah baby! I ordered some of the new Big Shot die cuts and had to use the Flower Layers die for my card today. I have a Cuttlebug and wanted to see if the Sizzix dies would work with it and they do!! I had to sandwich the Flower Layers die in between two B cutting plates for it to work and I'm not entirely sure it is good for the plates, but it worked. So until I can save my pennies next quarter for the Big Shot machine, this will do. The other dies work wonderfully though. I also got some fun new stamp sets and I have a new card for you tomorrow - oooh, teaser! Yes, I really will post at least twice this week - hehe.


Man, I'm chatty today! Kristina's challenge this week is Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze (I don't have it so I used Sage Shadow since she mentioned 'minty green' in her post), So Saffron, and Very Vanilla. It was a fun challenge, so go check out the other entries and give it a try.


Have a fantastic day!
Karen
