Freshly Made & ColourQ#154

I really seem to be having a hard time getting into the fall groove...must be the summer like temperatures that we're having ~ 25C on Friday (77F) ~ so needless to say, the pool is still open and we'll be celebrating Angela & Kevin's Birthday's with a pool/BBQ Bash! But I did get some stampin in last DH is so sweet, he came downstairs and watched his shows while I created, he said "I just want to be near you"...I'm blessed...

So the two challenges that I entered are...Freshly Made (love this blog) ~ the challenge was an Anniversary Celebration, and here is the sketch that I chose to use, but I flipped it on it's side
the Colour Q # 154! Now if you've never played along with these challenges or it's been awhile...jump over and have a peek!!!! Join in the fun ~ I had a blast!!!

My card is another Triple Time Stamping Technique....I'm in LOVE with this Technique and  just needed to create another and when I saw the colours from the Colour Q, I knew exactly what I was going to do ~ found the perfect sketch from Freshly Made (although AFTER my card was complete, I realized I forgot the long panel...sorry girls, I hope that's okay) and here is my card..and as you can see...I still own some retired items...actually, I need to confess...I have a ton of retired stamp sets, can't seem to part with them (my hoarding is organized, so I guess that's why I think I can get away with keeping everything)...enough is my card...

I'm really pleased with the out come of my card ~ can't wait to create this with my girls next week! Hope I've left you with some run over to these challenges and give them a go! Enjoy your is a quick shot of what I've been up to with my girls!
