OCC Color Challenge, plus a TSG Sneak Peek Preview #1!!!


Happy Saturday!!!

My goodness this week has gone by in a flash....I was a busy little Stamper and I'm happy to show you two cards today!!!

My first one is for the OCC Challenge - Kim has challenged us to use this Color Combo - More Mustard, Bashful Blue and Not Quite Navy!!! Please visit the OCC blog for all the Samples and all the other info.

Oh my, I really had to think about this Color Combo, but after searching for a perfect Stamp Set - I came a cross the *Happy Harmony* Set and figured it would be perfect for the task.

I used the Mojo79 Sketch for my layout. The Not Quite Navy DP is from the Hostess Level I Patterns Pack featured in the past SU Catalog. The Ribbon is from American Crafts. I also used a new EK Success Punch (Michael's) on the top and bottom of the Bashful Blue CS. At the end I added the big Silver Brads.

For all the close ups please visit the OCC ladies on their blog - Cindy, Jennifer, Lori, Kim, Vicki, Frances, Robin, Loretta and Jenny.

**********************************************

If you saw a different card earlier, well I goofed....Yikes!!! I guess I was confused - LOL???
This is the *official* right post now - LOL. This card is for the There She Goes - Blog Hop!!!

Well - let me show you the right one we are *featuring* - this Set is called *Cupcake Mix & Match* - designed by Nina Brackett.


The layout is again from the Mojo79 Sketch. I used a monochromatic look on my card using Basic Gray and White.

The DP is from the upcoming *Walk in the Park* Collection. The Punch is from Martha Stewart (Michael's). Of course I had to add my favorite Silver Pearls to spice up the card....LOL!!!

At last I added the Organza Ribbon and raised the main panel up with Stampin Dimensionals.

Since I'm the last in the blog hop line - I want to make sure you get to see all the other Trendsetters as well - REMEMBER YOU HAVE TO COMMENT ON ALL THE BLOGS IN ORDER TO WIN THIS AWESOME SET!!!! Jessica Knutsen, Angela Jones, Becky Carafa, Christi Thorsen, Faith Hofrichter, Holly McMillen, Jessie Rone, Joanne Grzelak, Jodi Collins, Julie Lacey , Makiko Jones and Gabby (our Guest Designer).

Hope you'll come back tomorrow when I have the right post again...he,he,he?!? ~TFL~
