Default TCP Tuesday 161- Inspiration Challenge!

Hey TCP fans!! I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend and are now ready to get your stamp-y-ness on! I have a fun inspiration pic for you to go by this week. It's a funky, fresh, summer-y and a lot of FUN...and whatever adjectives that you might use for your inspiration. It's completely open to your interpretation, so just go forth and have FUN!

The details you wanna know...
Here's what you need to know:
1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook on My Blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES161 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

Either I am going colour blind or my computer's the culprit...lately I've gotten a few colour challenges mixed up!! I see pink when it's appartantly red, and purple when it's really brown?? Anyway, I went with pink for this challenge! Thought I better explain myself a little hehe

You used pink Jenny? Looks red here! I think it could be either a dark pink or red - hard to tell sometimes! Either way, it's all good . . .it's all about being inspired and your card is definitely that!!

Must be a Canadian thing Jenny, I thought it was pink too!

I inked up my new Wet Puddle stamp set. It seemed fitting to associate rain with Spring and Summer considering the weather we have been having here lately!

It's not just a Canadian thing - looks dark pink to me too! This is my favorite type challenge so I'm hoping to get something done for this.

Haha! Yep, I used pink! The CS and ribbon is rose red (SU!) and since I didn't have that ink colour, I used melon mambo ink for the birdhouse. I did totally screw up the CTDC challenge though- it was supposed to be chocolate chip and all I saw was purple! I guess if I would have looked closer at the DT samples, I would have seen that there was no purple to be found!! lol

I had a lot of trouble with this challenge. Almost gave up a few times. lol
I used the colors from the apron, felt flowers for the flowers, and pink slats for the park bench. (It looks pink on my laptop. )

It's adorable Jill. You'd never know you had a hard time.
