Aloha!

Morning stampers! Did you have a wonderful weekend? Mine was nice...quiet...ahhh!

I actually got two cards made yesterday and one was with my brand new Aloha Sophia stamp! Isn't she adorable? She is July's Stamp of the Month from Paper Pretties. I was able to combine about three challenges on this card, fun huh? First, I used last weeks Lunch Time Sketch from Techno Stamper. Then, I used two challenges from Paper Pretties. This week's challenge is a color challenge which is yellow, turquoise, and another color of my choice which would be the pink. Also, there was a new stamp release for which they had a challenge of the only embellishment that could be used is buttons. So, if you can believe it I didn't use any ribbon, only a couple of buttons on the bottom by the sentiment. What do you think? A good combination of challenges?

So...we are off for some shopping today so I must get a move on and exercise before we leave!

Have a happy day everyone!
