Feeling the blues...

Not actual blues, just the latest colour challenge from the Colour Chef, light blue, dark blue, grey and white. This did not turn out the way I planned it, but I quite like the result and it makes a nice masculine card. Need lots of those, with 3 boys in the house! The sketch is from Unscripted sketches, I really liked this one.
I used paper from Notebook and Stardust paper packs and the stamp set is New Horizons, all CTMH.

Haven't posted in a couple days, it's been super busy. However, I did find time to peek at the new CTMH catalog that's coming out in September, and I now have a wish list as long as my arm. Sigh... Can't wait to share it with everyone!
I just bought some super cute stamps from Joanna Sheen called Messy Rabbit. Two firsts for me, ordering online (and from the UK no less) and trying unmounted rubber. I know many of you out there will be snickering, but I've always prefered the touchy feely part of buying stuff. With so many LSS closed now though, if I want a good fix, the internet is full of great stuff. As for rubber stamps, when I found CTMH, I couldn't imagine ever using rubber again. But, the internet is full of tempting options, so I am anxiously awaiting my new stamps to try them out. If anyone has any suggestions on using unmounted stamps, please pass them along, I could use the help!

Finally, a great big thank you to Krista Ritskes for giving me this blog award, I appreciate it so much. I will try to pass it along to some other bloggers soon, there are so many great blogs out there it's hard to choose!
