Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge

Yay, it's already the weekend again!  I never wish the days away, because I believe each day is a gift from God!  I have been feverishly doing laundry and cleaning, and teaching the kids, but did find time to take part in this weekend's Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge going on over at Papercraftplanet.  Monique is hostessing and she definitely came up with some challenging colors for all of us to work with.  She chose the colors, Pink Pirouette, Cameo Coral, Kiwi Kiss, and Sahara Sand, with White as an optional neutral.  I combined two stamp sets for my card.  I chose Cat-tastic, because I was just dying to ink it up.  I also chose to use the April Stamp of the Month called Silhouette Wishes, because I loved the script in this one.  I was also really excited to try using Flower Soft with the Flower Soft Wires.  The drapes are just crumpled, and I did score the 'house' to give it the look of siding.

So now that I have gotten a chance to stamp, I think my shakes will go away ;)  Now I need to clean up the mess I just made and get to the grocery store, and the dog needs a bath so I better run.  Hope everyone has an amazingly blessed weekend!
