Wedding Wishes

Do you ever dream of crafting? I woke up this morning with the TGIF and Friday Mashup challenges on my mind along with a card floating around inside there, too! So I ignored all housework after exercising and spent a happy hour in my stamp studio...

...and these are the results:

For the first one I colored directly on the Something Lacy background stamp with my markers (Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder). 

Then I tried embossing Something Lacy on vellum cardstock and colored it from the back using the same colors: 

 Both turned out lovely and I'm prepared for 2 June weddings! #tgifc04 #fm210

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:

That was fun~ I may have been a little excited to be the VERY first TGIFChallenge'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.
