Color Throwdown #409

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! Hoping now to be back on a regular stamping schedule and maybe get a little fun stamping time in!! My mom was here visiting for a few weeks- LOVED every minute!! My dad passed away recently and this gave her a little break- Bill and I took her to Florida- we shopped- ate a lot of good food- and visited family!!

Anywho- on to business...

It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! I am the host this week and we're playing with aqua, yellow, black, and white!! Hope you enjoy them!! 


So, the other day I was driving to work and noticed this woman with palazzo pants (yes, yes, these are back in style!) in these exact colors- they were an abstract print- LOVED them - thus, the colors for this week :-)


So... I played with MFT's Soda Pop stamps and dies along with those wonky stitched rectangles again. When i bought these I liked the idea they were different and fun- have used them several times now- great for masculine or feminine cards!!

I love, love, love these dies and you've created a gorgeous card with them. The way the color fades towards the tops of the bottles is fabulous.

I'm so sorry for your loss Vickie~I'm sure you blessed your mother. We just recently lost my mother-in-law and it's been a difficult transition. I think you hit the ball out of the park with these colors~can't wait to try them. Love your bottle duo and ribbon treatment~

LOVE the bottles and sentiment and colors! So glad you were able to spend some time with your mom. So sorry to hear about your dad passing. You could've come and visited me in Florida! I live in Sarasota !
