Colors, Mashups, Retirement and Special Card

Give me a good challenge...or three...and set me loose! Today I was anticipating the opportunity to join the inagural challenge over at TGIF Challenges with the uber-talented Mercedes and her "dream team" of creators and serendipity happened when the Friday Mashup gave me an excuse to use my Chalk Talk stamp set once more before it retired! Here are the challenges~ A color combo, sketch and retired set:


And this is my creation:

Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

That was fun~ I may have been a little excited to be the VERY first TGIFChallenge entry...it's a stampin' thing, I guess!!

Chalk Talk was one of my favorite retiring stamps and if you love it, get it today in my store! I've shared a few other projects using this soon-to-be-gone set on my Creative Juice by Loni Facebook Page ...join me there for daily inspiration, fun and creative juice.

Hi, Loni. What a great combination of the two challenges. The Chalk Talk label works perfectly with the sketch. I love the colours you've used as well as the textures. I'll miss that stamp set, too. Thanks so much for joining us this week for the Friday Mashup.

These colors are very soft to me, but I love how bold they look on your card! Thanks so much for joining us at TGIF!

Aww thank you for the sweet comments! I must admit that our Team was stalking the site to see if anyone was going to play along & we all got a little giddy when your card popped up! Thank you SO much for making time to stamp along with us! ~Hugs

YAY! The are the first player and you created a fabulous card! Love how you have cut the "something" to highlight it, Chalktalk was one of my favorite stamp sets and I will be keeping it for a long time.

Thank you for the support by playing along with TGIF.
