I'm back baby!

At least for today...lots going on in the next week so this will probably be my last post until next weekend.  So, I've not been very motivated to stamp this week or do much of anything:-)  Still trying to get used to my summer work schedule and get lots of workout time in too.  Plus, I can't seem to stop gazing (and maybe drooling a bit) over the new catalog!  I think sometimes making out my wish list is more fun that stamping!!!  LOL!  Anyway, I loved the Colour Q challenge this week!  I wanted to do something really bold with the cherry cobbler kind of like the skirt (which I LOVE) but I ended up with something more subtle.  I did use a sneak peek stamp set though.  Check it out:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Snow much fun (sneak peek)
Paper:  watercolor, subtles DSP stack, crumb cake, early espresso, cherry cobbler
Ink:  staz-on, various for watercoloring
Accessories:  Modern label punch, two way glue pen, pearls, dazzling diamonds, cherry cobbler seam binding

I think it turned out pretty cute!  Although, you'll have to excuse the crummy pic, I just took it and they never turn out well at night.  The sentiment really does show up better than in the picture too. So I'm ahead by two Christmas cards already this year, haha!  When I saw this little guy and his birds, I knew they would be the perfect pop of cherry cobbler so I colored him all in with my aquapainter.  I should have used my watercolor crayons but I forgot!  Anyway, I highlighted him using some crumb cake to make him look a bit more vintage.  When all was said and done he just needed "something".  So, I also highlighted him with some dazzling diamonds and that was just IT!  He looked fab!  I hope the CQ ladies enjoy my little snow man...which by the way I would love to have for a friend right now...or at about 7pm today after running four miles out in the almost 90 degree weather:-)  See you next weekend!  Happy stamping!
