Coloring Down the Lines Hop-March 25

Good morning, hoppers!  You've arrived from Amanda's blog  Today's inspiration photo is cheese, and I love all the browns and blacks together, such a neutral palate.  And I love cheese, but My card has nothing to do with cheese.  The colors today are: Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black, and Basic Gray.  I love how this stamp set looks. At first I didn't think I would like it, but it has become one of my favorite sets.  I added a little glitter to the butterfly for some bling.  Helen's card, I know is not "cheesy" either, Let's go see what she made.  I know you'll love it.  Thanks for visiting, and see you next time.  Enjoy the hop.  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the Lines Hop-March 18

Hello, crafty ladies!Amanda is out this week, we'll miss her.    Just coming from Robbie's blog,   you know she was on the ball-  Me, however, I am not pleased with mine at all!  Seems like a cop-out.  I LOVE hydrangeas, but there's no excuse for this one.  Anyway, our color palate used Pistachio Pudding, Pear Pizazz, Wild Wasabi,, Mossy Meadow, Basic Gray, and  Wisteria Wonder.  Similar to last week, but with the purple.  I bet Helen did a bang-up job though,  let's go see.  Enjoy your day, and thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Welcome to our Wednesday hop!  I'm sure Amanda kicked another beautiful creation out to us, where you've just come from  Our colors today are old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Wild Wasabi, Pistachio Pudding, Smoky Slate, and Very vanilla.  A lot of greens, so I just punched out some blooms and put them on the Bordering Bloom stamp and added a little crystal in the center.  My version of a St patty's day card.  :)  Let's go on over and visit Miss Helen, ok?  She is very good at using her colors, so I can't wait to see it either.  Enjoy your hop and your day, and thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

coloring down the lines hop-March 4

Happy Icy Wednesday! Did you slip and slide from Amanda's blog?  No doubt you did.  Our challenge today was to use Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Sahara Sand.  Some real vibrant colors, for sure, but I didn't know how to mix them, so I spied my pack of something borrowed DSP and just simply colored it in, because the background is Sahara sand!  Genius, right?  Well I kinda like it now, though I had my doubts.  I just put some ribbon across and colored up those rosettes.  What do ya think?  Let's slide on over to Helen's blog and see what she did.  Pretty, huh?  Well thanks for visiting, and come on back for more.  Carol Smith
