A Color Challenge

From Color My Heart
Colors are Wisteria, Lemonade, and Green Apple.
It seem like Thank you notes are in short supply around here. Lots to be thankful for. Sometimes a hand written note is appreciated more than just an e-mail or text. And of course thank you hugs are the best. It's kind of like I can't do Snapchat or Tiktok, but I can write in cursive, do math without a calculator, tell time on a clock with hands, and write a hand written thank you note for someone special.
Send a Thank You note to someone today.

Tic Tac Toe Time

At Color My Heart
This Tic Tac toe Board was truly a challenge. It was hard to pick the row, column, or diagonal to play with . I finally decided to play with the top row: Peach, Pewter, and Evergreen. I used a peach base with a pewter circle for a background. I dropped down some banners and accented with a peach flower and a touch of the Evergreen. 

Play at Color My Heart for a fun challenge.

I like to keep a handful of thank you cards handy. I was getting low so  I used these cool colors from Color My Heart and my favorite thanks die cut to make a small stash. The colors are Capri, Flamingo, and Grape. I added a touch of Lemonade flowers to dress up my thanks. Thanks Color My Heart for the cool colors.

Tic Tac Toe Time

At Color My Heart
Tic Tac Toe Time was a little challenging because it was hard to choose the row or column. They are all so fun to play with. I finally settled on the middle row with Clover, Kraft, and Capri. I made a soft Capri background with the card front stencil "Thank You."  Colored a flower image with the Capri and Clover colors. Then added some Kraft embellishments  from the Hope & Kindness die cuts and stamped "Thank You" with Capri ink.

Have fun with Tic Tac Toe and share at Color My Heart.

From the Six Pack

Rich Dark Colors
Going from Summery fun colors to Rich Dark Colors 
was quite a stretch. It took a while to decide what to make. 
I finally came up with a collection of sea shells. 
This stamp set was just sitting on on my work table when
 the Color My Heart colors came to mind. I made some 
shells with the rick colors and this card came together.
My colors from the six pack: Sundance, Rosemary, & Mocha
To color these shells just stamp the outline image in the
 color of your choice. Then turn the stamp over using the
 backside of the same stamp ink to 2nd generation and 
stamp on top of your outlined image. Accent each shell
 with a water brush and the ink pad.

Have some fun with these rich colors and share at Color My Heart.

Simple & Easy Coloring

With Sponging
Don't get out your markers,  colored pencils, or water colors, 
Just grab your ink pad and a sponge and color your stamped image.
With the new In Full Bloom stamp set  you don't need to color 
in the entire image. Just stamp the image and sponge the center. 
This sponge coloring coordinates with the new In Full Bloom
 paper pack. I stamped my images with black ink and sponged 
lightly with Lagoon and Avocado. Give it a try and share
