A Color Throwdown

I love summer! The kids and I have just been living outside, playing with the neighbors until late every night. They have been loving it! It's almost been hard to look at curriculum, but I know that we'll have to buckle down eventually and get back to the grind at the first of August. All the neighborhood kids will be back to school, and we'll have to get started too. Until then, we'll just continue to live it up outside even if it is 100 degrees outside with 99% humidity {lol}.

Speaking of neighbors, one of the little girls down the street is having a birthday party on Saturday. So, when I came across the colors for the Color Throwdown, I knew they would be perfect for Lily's card! The colors are Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, and Kiwi Kiss. Lily is having a Tinkerbell party, so I thought the new My Little Ballerina set from Clear Dollar Stamps would be perfect!
Stamps: My Little Ballerina (CD Stamps)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Neenah Solar White, Whisper White, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss dp
Accessories: Copics, Tempting Turquoise brads, circle cutters, Scallop Circle Nestabilities, turquoise & icicle stickles
With my man gone, my days are filled with playing outside and my nights are filled with stamping sneaks for CDS. I hope you all are enjoying your summer as well.
