I Carrot 'bout You


I was excited this weekend to finally work on some challenges!  I have been wanting to play in Sue & Allison's challenge Everything Old is New Again Challenge  but hadn't had a chance since their first or 2nd week

This week their challenge was to use an unloved color- Orange.  Well, I had the PERFECT image for this that I just received from Stampotique.  How cool & funky is this Carrot image?  I also stretched myself to use Allison's sketch for the week as well.

I've had a friend in mind the last week and have actually made several cards for friends this past week and will be posting them throughout the week.  She's been having a rough time and I've just had her on my mind.  I wanted to send her a nice quirky card so I hope it will put a smile to her face when she receives it as it's so NOT her style of card...but that's why I know it might give her a little chuckle.

If you haven't already joined us at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge- head on over there and join us, it's an easy theme this week- "LOVE".

Here's a 2nd card I did with just a little different layout.

Card details:
Stamps:  Carrot & I Carrot 'Bout You from Stampotique Originals
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie & SEI Black Orchid, Stamper's Select
Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers
Accessories:  Orange You Fabulous ribbon from Clear & Simple Stamps, Black Brads from Designer Mix Clear & Simple Stamps

Kim, Hi

this is a very cute card. the image is so odd but still cute-weird? I love the color orange but so true it is hardly used.

Your friend will surely smile when she sees this.
