Hi stampers and happy Friday! It's been a busy week here with my BFF coming to visit which was fun but kind of sad since we wanted to go to the pool and it was cool and rainy. Of course it was pretty nice today....right after she left...figures. And then we are planning on seeing a movie this weekend and have our class at the hospital on Saturday. Oh, and the crib is in and it wouldn't fit in my SUV so I'm hoping it fits in Jon's! I'm tired just typing all of this, lol! AND I should be getting a box of goodies tomorrow as I finally put in an order from the new catalog! Do your orders always seem to come RIGHT when you have plans or a ton to do? LOL!
Anyway, since it's time for a new challenge at Fab Friday I did manage to drag my tired self (I had fun with my friend but I guess she wore me out, lol) down to stamp last night! This week's challenge celebrates the new in colors!
I kind of have a confession....I did NOT like these colors upon first glance but that's sometimes the case with new in colors for me. Maybe because I REALLY like the other group of colors right now and am drawn to bright colors like them? Maybe because these colors were so different from that group? Who knows but each time I looked at them I liked them a little more and I have to say as I may have been putting this logo together at the last minute yesterday (kind of forgot to update MDS and that I needed to do it so thank you to our team member who reminded me!!!!) it struck me that I REALLY love these colors especially all 5 together! There is just something striking about seeing them here together I think! And I do like them in other combos but I really love this!!!!!!
So, I wanted to really focus on the colors so I went with a super CAS card which is mostly what I've done lately anyway (when time and mojo are lacking clean and simple is the way to go I guess). I really need to sit down for a long time and play with these new colors and all my new stuff! But I think the card turned out really well, yay!
Stamps: Point & click (Project life set), previous MPP stamp
Paper: Whisper white
Ink: Rich razzleberry, lost lagoon, mossy meadow, hello honey, tangelo twist, basic black
I used the stamp from the old MPP welcome kit and I love it! I don't know why but it will be one of my all time fave sentiment stamps forever and ever! And I have been seeing stars EVERYWHERE and I don't have too many so I hunted these down in one of the project life sets which just goes to show you those sets are highly versatile and NOT just for scrapping! And again, with wanting to focus on the colors themselves I went ahead and stamped one set at full strength then stamped the second set of stars without inking again which is a technique I should use more often! It's so simple but kind of striking!!!!
So there you have it. I know I haven't shared a whole lot about my pregnancy but I thought I'd leave you with this crazy picture of my little man stretching out yesterday. And it's not that I haven't wanted to...I'm just lazy lol! But he is CRAZY active and actually hurts me quite often! This did not feel good but it just looked so weird! My hubby and mom's replies when I sent them the picture were so funny! lol! I can't imagine what he's going to do to me in 6 more weeks!!!!!!
Now, if you're not totally freaked out (lol) head on over to the Fab Friday site if you haven't been there already to check out ALL of the DT's amazing projects! I get a sneak peek of them on Thursday and have to say this week they are all more than amazing!!!! And don't forget to bust out those new colors and play along!
