Blogger's Challenge 30



WOW!! This was a tough one for me. The challenge was to use River Rock, Real Red and Bayou Blue. Not my favorite combination, but I guess that is why they are called challenges. All I could think of when I thought of these colors was stars but I wanted to use flower! So that "hard headed --stuck on one thing" person that I am stuck to it and here are my flowers. They were a labor of love to say the least!

Stamps: So Many Scallops, Small Script, Little Pieces, Noteworthy
Paper: River Rock, Real Red, Bayou Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Blue Bayou, Glorious Green
Accessories: Hodge Podge Hardware, Build a Brad, ribbon, white gel pen, markers, ruler

I promise to get my list of players up on my sidebar again. I have decided to put them back up -- I know I am also wishy washy at times. For now you can visit Pat's Blog and check out her sidebar for all the players. Also I will be adding another sidebar for you all to check out. Starting on Monday I will be doing my very own Sketch Challenges! I can't wait, I have a wonderful group who want to play along and I sure hope that you will too. Keep watching for more details. For now I NEED to get in the shower.
