Thursday's with Lindsay

Good Morning! For being up since 5:15 this morning, I'm running very far behind.

I love when I can combine my design team work for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff with other challenges - it makes the card that much more fun to create! I love this new image from Lindsay, I've always had a fondness for cattails. I think they're so cool looking! And, of course, I had to play with the other new dragonfly that she released last week.


This cattails design can be found in her shop. So can the dragonfly. OK - now this is what is so cool about high quality digi-stamps. They can be resized to suit your needs. See how tiny I made these dragonflies.

The challenges that I participated in are: the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday, Digital Tuesday - a man card (this card is pretty masculine) and Color Throwdown which is to use the new Stampin' Up! In Color colors Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede. Well, I don't have those colors so I chose what I thought was closest to these colors: Close to Cocoa, Really Rust and Taken with Teal.

Don't forget to check out the team members blogs - someone has the freebie!

Thank you for stopping by.
