Playing Along with Challenges...

I have a few cards to whip together, so I thought I would play along with challenges. First, I meant to play along with A La Card Monkey, and I forgot the key part, the pennant flags. Doh! I blame the little motor mouth who was helping me.

So this one is the ColourQ challenge. Little Missy colored the straw and umbrella.

Stamps: Tropical Party; Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray, Whisper White; Ink: Lucky Limeade, Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise, Bashful Blue; Accessories: Signo white gel pen, Sponges, Brayer, Hemp twine, Square Lattice embossing folder, Top Note die, Big Shot.

Try again, here's my A La Card Monkey card.

Love, love, love the sewing on the pennants. Little Missy got to color the drink, which she also chose. Can you tell where my inspiration came from?

Stamps: Tropical Party, Cheers to You, Up, Up & Away, Calendar Alphabet & Numbers; Paper: Bashful Blue, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Island Oasis DSP; Ink: Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Basic Gray, Sahara Sand, Garden Green, Crumb Cake marker; Accessories: Build a Cupcake punch, Petite Pennant punch, Circle punch, Itty Bitty punch pack, Color Spritzer Tool, Brayer, Signo white gel pen, Sponges, Square Lattice embossing folder, 3-1/2" Circle punch, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!
