A New Year & A New Look!

Hi Stamping Friends!

I haven't been stamping lately, 'cause I've been so busy fixing up my blog.  What do you think?  I downloaded this Blog-In-A-Box from the Sweet Shoppe Designs.  I love it!  I've been having so much fun making sidebar buttons and rearranging all my Widgets.  But now I'm ready to stamp.

All my favorite challenge blogs are back in full swing after the holidays.  So today's double challenge card gets the sketch from the Stamping 411 blog SSC132 and the color combo from the Color Throwdown blog CTD74.

Keep in mind that I haven't stamped in awhile, so this card is pretty basic.  Suffice it to say that I'm not in love with it, but I just need to start stamping again to get in a groove!

I love pink, brown, and orange for Valentine's Day, but that Dusty Durango was hard to work with!  It's such a fall color to me.  The card base is Chocolate Chip layered with Regal Rose that has been embossed with the SU! Polka Dot Texturz Plate.  I haven't got my SU! Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder from the Occasions Mini, but it's on it's way!  The heart image is from the Priceless set and the sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes... LOVE this set!!  It has every sentiment for every holiday.

I guess I better get back to stamping.  I have over 180 cards I need to make for my Stamping For Missions fundraiser.  YIKES!

PRICELESS  #115052  $28.95

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

I must admit that when I first got the combo I struggled with it but once I saw the digi paper it really came together for me and I have been having so much fun with it. I even decided to use it as a theme for my Scripture challenge album--check it out:

Great job on your card--someone will enjoy that sweet card come Valentine's Day!!
