CTD100, CCEE1027 Miss You!!!

Aloha friends!!!

Boy oh boy is it HOT here in Georgia!!! How about in your neck of the woods??? At least I had a chance to stay in most of the day .... I got to stamp and clean up my messy table...wahooo!!!


Did you see that the CTD Team is celebrating their 100th Challenge this week!?! Of course I had to play along in their fabulous color challenge CTD100 !!! Congrats ladies to your major milestone...it's always fun to playing along with you all!!!

These are the colors for this week.....


Here is my card............



My sweet blogging friend Joanne is hosting the CCEE1027 Challenge this week and I used her fun Sketch for my layout (I actually flipped it sideways)!!!

I used the beautiful SU Watercolor Trio Set. I stamped the images randomly with the required colors using SU Ink and Markers. To finish it off I added the Dazzling Diamond Glitter, some Silver Cord, a MS Butterfly and my fav Silver Pearls!!!

Thanks for stopping by tonight!!! Stay cool and I'll see ya soon!!! Hugs ~S~

Hello my friend...PERFECTO!!! love that watercolor look...where did you get that patterned paper? geez...that adds a special touch to this beauty!

and heck yeah...it was over 100 degrees in my neck of the woods...I left work with two cupcakes to give to my DD... by the time I made it to my car (probably less than 1/2 a block)...the candy palm tree on the cupcake fell...and melted...LOL...I am sure it still tastes good though.

Stay out of the sun...and stay safe!!

Gorgeous as always Silke! It's been really HOT here too (in PA), reaching 100 the past few days, I just hate it! My Mom is flying down to Atlanta on Saturday, and then she and my sister are headed to Charleston for a few days, I told her to bring along her asbestos underwear lol!

Charlene Merrick (LilLuvsStampin) said...

Oh so pretty, Silke! I'm glad you were able to play in the CCEE challenge. It's been terribly hot here, too. My mama is in Georgia this week with her sister; I hope they are surviving your heat.

Marisa said...

Gorgeous!! I am very impatiently waiting for this set arrive - ugh!! A perfect match for this colour combo! You have used it perfectly on this card!!! An there is that fabulous butterfly too - you're killing me, Silke LOL!

We are roasting out here on the West Coast! 31C today (94F) and this is not normal for us!! Consequently very few people have air conditioning so we are very hot and sticky right now. Poor cat is not happy!! We are off the the water slides tomorrow to try to keep cool.

Liebe Silke,

Deine Karte ist traumhaft schön geworden, die Farben sind so richtig schön sommerlich.

Bei uns in Deutschland ist es auch total warm, wir haben endlich Sommer, nur leider seit Tagen keinen Regen, für den Garten und die Natur ist das nicht so schön.

Vielen lieben Dank auch für Deinen lieben Eintrag.

Herzliche Freitagsgrüße
von Anke

Robin Kirkpatrick said...

Gorgeous card. I'm really loving what you've been doing with that set and I adore that butterfly. Be cool, my friend!

Dawn Easton said...

Silke, this is simply GORGEOUS my friend! Wow! So eye catching!

LOL it's hot here but not like at your house. Mind you, we don't have central air here so it's extremely uncomfortable in the house....haha!
Hope you guys can stay cool!

Broni said...

What a GORGEOUS card, Silke, as ALWAYS!! Thanks so much for helping us to celebrate our 100th challenge!

jdmommy said...

Silke, the image panel is lovely, but ........the RED butterfly is GORGEOUS!! (Would you expect anything else of me???!)

Savitri said...

Hey! How are ya? Long time I haven't left a message!! This is gorgeous!! LOVE every bit of it! I hope things are well there!!

I don't miss the U.S. heat. There's no AC here and the house is cool while it'll be 85 or something today. That's a stinkin' heat wave here :P

Tammy Hershberger said...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! You know I think you alone are responsible for me breaking down ordering this set. It comes Tuesday! I hope I can work the magic like you can!

BTW-I don't think I knew you lived in GA. My son was born in GA. We lived in Chattanooga. I loved the South but wanted to be close to my mom and dad while raising the kids.
