Coloring Down the Lines

Happy Wednesday to you!  Did you have fun at Amanda's blog?  It's always a treat, to say the least.  Our colors for today were to use Very Vanilla, Crisp Cantaloupe, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, and Marina Mist.  I used the stamp sets Bordering Blooms and Chalk Talk.  The colors are all in there, I colored in my little pearls with the cantaloupe pen, and added the marina mist ribbon.  Hope you like it.  I can't wait to see what Helen made, so lets go!  Enjoy your day and the rest of the hop, and come back again to see what's here.  Carol Smith

Coloring down the Lines

Good morning ladies, and happy Wednesday!  It's raining cats and dogs,here!  And Windy!!!   A good day to stay in and stamp, right?  I bet that's what Amanda's doing as we speak.  Her blog is always fun to visit, as  you know, cause you just came from there.  Our colors for today were Crushed Curry, Wild Wasabi, Lost Lagoon, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler.  I used a white background to make the colors show up nice, and used the kissing technique.  Love that, except it mixes your inks up.  Anyway, then I used the black for the Salutation from "Good Greetings" and put some "grunge" on it.  I added a cheerry cobbler ribbon to the inside for a little card to write a letter in. I so want to go on to Helen's blog, cause I missed her last week.  Let's go.  Come back next time, and thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines

Good morning ladies, and welcome from Amanda's blog. (who by the way, has a beautiful interpretation of our inspiration picture)!  Our colors for this one was Sahara Sand, Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Blackberry Bliss, and Perfect Plum.  Lots of purples... I was at a loss for ideas, then I spied my new polymer set "Wonderful" and thought that would be just fine.  I added some iridescent ice emboss powder to it for some sparkle, just like our stone in the picture.  Let's see if Joni did something sparkly or not.   Come back again and thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines

Good day, ladies, hope you are enjoying your hop so far.  You've just seen what Amanda made, and it it is always very special, no?  Our colors for today were Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi, Mossy Meadow, Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, and Whisper white.  I used the darkest colors for my background in cardstock, and added flowers and leaves from the stamp sets "Happy Watercolor and Summer Silouhettes".  Just add a crystal to the center of each flower.  Let me know what you think.  It's growing on me. :)  Let's go see what Joni made.  She's such a crafty girl, I know it will inspire you also.  Thanks for visiting, and come back again.  Carol

Coloring Dwn the lines-Being Sillly

Hello and welcome from Amanda's blog  We are here for another round of coloring down the lines, and hers was fabulous!   Our colors for today were Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Blackberry Bliss, Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight. Sandy picked this inspiration photo, and although I love the colors together, I didn't know what to do.  I drew a blank, and our week started out horrible, had a bad well pump, the dog is sick, and what next?  So to put myself in a little better mood, I thought I'd just be silly, and this is what happened!  I had this halloween set sitting on my desk, but wanted to do flowers.  Whalaa!! (I didn't say I liked it).  I know for sure, that Helen will trump me! Can't wait to see how she will inspire me today.  Well, come back next week, I'll try to be in a more creative mood.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

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
