The color combination challenge for this week on splitcoaststampers.com is purely pomegranate, old olive, and pretty in pink. I put my new wheel to use on my card and combined it with carte postale. I've been super busy with school getting back into the swing, so I have had limited time for stamping but couldn't give up some of the challenges because they are just too much fun.

Wow, my body just hasn't quite gotten back into the swing of my back to work mode yet. KWIM?? Couldn't resist doing this Halloween challenge on Splitcoaststampers today, so had to get this together before I get to bed. Aren't these the cutest Halloween stamps from the Batty for You set?? It's time to get those fall themed cards going!! Hope all my stamping buddies out there who are teachers have a smooth beginning of year and a very successful year!!Remember you can say when asked what you do---I teach future lawyers, doctors, and engineers!! The bumper sticker on my car says,"I teach, so therefore I rule!"

I've got to go back to school today, but started the morning this morning with Emily's color challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com. We were to use groovy guava and soft sky. I love this combo and this eyelet idea I got from javagirl 984 CASEd from one of her cards. I decided to run the ribbon through to see how that would look. Gotta get to work. Have a great day too!

I used one of my new stamps from the new mini catalog coming out in September. This is True Friends and I used the new sanded background from the big catty. It looks great when you stamp over an image with a very subtle color. Here I stamped over with sahara sand. This card was made for today's color challenge on SCS. The colors are bayou blue, sahara sand, and chocolate chip.

That Splitcoaststampers is the most wonderful place out there. Michelle, aka "istamp31," recently sent me some already punched scalloped ovals, squares, and circles, because I whined on a comment on one of her lovely creations that I did not own any of these fabulous punches. She took pity and sent me some that she punched out for me. I made this card with some of these. Got the new boho friend wheel that is in the new mini catalog that all of my customers should soon be receiving. I also used the true friend set from that mini as well.

How excited all of my stampers are going to be to try out the new punch out images to mount from the upcoming mini catalog from Stampin' Up! Wow, it took only about 5 minutes to mount this set and I was stamping in no time. This card was made with the True Friend set. I also used the new In color purely pomegranate. Check out those new jeweled brads and that new ribbon in the new in colors that is double stitched. You're going to love these new things from Stampin' Up.

I made this card today for two challenges on Splitcoaststampers. The featured stamper this week is 88 keys (Deb) and I used her fabulous layout for this card. I also used a tole flower for the technique challenge of the week. I really liked the way the layered tag turned out. That new scallop punch is great and fits so many of the stamps and other punches well.

I can't believe August is already here. I've been trying to learn more and more about how to get some other interesting things going on this blog thanks to two great gals from SCS: Mercy and Dee. They have been so much help and I think this is going to be so much fun to have a place for my work.
