Stick Together!


Today my good friend, Holly, is guest hosting the SCS Color Challenge 232, so I just had to make time to play along! The colors were Close to Cocoa, Taken With Teal and Very Vanilla.

I used some of my fun Hambo Stamps for this card. The porcupine is stamped in Palette Noir Black ink and then watercolored with Close to Cocoa ink. Isn't he cute?

Yesterday was Back to School and it went very well! The kids were glad to be back, I think, and we played instruments all day long! But I do treasure my stamping time today and was glad to be able to stamp!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a wonderful job with the color challenge. I still haven't done it yet because of work, but also because it looks like a hard one. I love the background papers and the tag of your card. Great job!
