Latenightstampin with the Blogger's Challenge crew!

OK, so does anyone else have such a hard time finding time at the end of the school year!  Seems there are way way way too many things to do and way way way too many places to go! For goodness sake it has been months since I have been caught up, lol!  So again, in an effort to catch up I am combining two challenges.  The first one and the one I am way behind on is our weekly challenge on Latengithstampers.  This week we were to make an ATC and then make a card from it.  So both of my samples today are doing just that.  Of course one is 100% current and one is a combination of retired and retiring stuff. 

The first one is using the fairy set in the Summer mini.  I have only had time to use this set once (twice now) so far.  It is not my favorite fairy set but I love fairies and therefore had to buy it.  What do you think???

This is also a preview of the new color Daffodil Delight.  I matched it up with Tangerine Tango.

Stamps: A little bit of magic, Upsy Daisy 
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Other: ribbon, markers, embossing folder

The next one is also an ATC made into a card, and it is using this week's blogger's challenge--which is a color challenge--Kiwi, Blue and White.  Fun combo.  Since I was using either retired or retiring colors I decided to pull out a retired set that I have not used in a while. Remember this one.  Frolicking Frogs!

Stamps: Frolicking Frogs
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers

Whew, sorry for the wordy post!  How to be back on track or close to it, lol!

Have a great weekend!
