Coloring Down the Lines- Pink Christmas

Happy Wednesday to you!  Amanda has a beautiful card this week, doesn't she?  This week's colors are pretty much similar, they are Very Vanilla, Blackberry Bliss, Rose Red, ? I used Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, and Pink Pirouette.  Not so sure I like my card, but I did  it late last night, and my Christmas Bauble was laying on the table, so I had a Pink Christmas epiphany...   I'm pretty sure Helen will be on her game today, so let's go see, shall we?  Thanks for visiting, and come back again soon.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines

Happy Wednesday, as this is blog hop day.  I'm sure you loved Amanda's card,, as usual.  Such imagination!  This week's colors, were crisp cantaloupe, tangerine tango, Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green and Pear Pizazz.  I apologize, I wimped out when I laid these colors out, I drew a blank, so I got out the stamp set "Happy Day", which I've had for a long time and never used, and just stmaped it all over for a background.  I used all the colors, and made a salutation from the new leaf die.  Turned out ok, I guess.  Let's go see what Helen made, I'm certain it will wow us...  Thanks for visiting, and come back again.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines

Welcome from Amanda's blog at !  She outdid herself today.  Love her ideas....  Everyone who knows me knows I love topiaries, so when I saw these little pots in the inspiration photo, I knew I had to do a topiary!  Pretty cute, I must say.  Let me know what you think.  Our colors were Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, which I sponged over the first color, and made a pot of the Cajun Craze, and the wreath is both Garden Green and Wild Wasabi, with Blackberry Bliss flowers.  I can't wait to see what Helen made, so let's go see.  .  Thanks for visiting, and come back again!  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines Hop

Hey ladies, enjoying the hop so far?  I am-  this is a good week to go nautical.  Labor Day weekend... You've just come from Amanda's blog . Loved her card.  This week's colors are Soft sky, Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Night of Navy, Real Red and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I used a New-to-me retired set that I have been looking for forever... Just sponge the background with all the colors, and I added the die in the corner and cut off a couple of the wings so you could see more of the background.   Opinions, please?  Let's see what our Helen made this week, I'm sure it will be spectacular!!  Comeback next week, and enjoy the rest of the hop.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines

Hey, it's once again Wednesday, our blog hop, and I hope your day is going great!   Mine is, because I have my little Gabriel with me today.  You have just come from seeing a  beautiful card by Amanda  She is very imaginative and creative, right?  Well, I picked this inspiration photo, and I had a very different idea from these colors from what i did!  The colors are: Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Soft Suede, Crisp Cantaloupe, and So Saffron.  (colorful names, huh).  Anyway, when I laid out all my elements, I had an epiphany- I used the so saffrorn as the center of my flowers, and the rest came together just like that..  Oh, and by the way, those tabs on the wreath are there for a reason!!!  From now on, I mark with a pencil, those tabs, or else  you can't find the right position to use the cutting die.  WOW!  .Hope you like it.  I'm anxious to see what Helen  She's a hard act to preceed, I don't know how she comes up with all her ideas.  Love her work.  So let me know what ya think, and come back again.  Enjoy the rest of your day.  Carol Smith
