Default WT99 - Glorious Green?

Your challenge this week is to use another color that I rarely use or see in the gallery. Glorious Green is piling up in the cardstock file and I need to find some uses for it. If you are like me, it is probably one of your least favorite SU colors so the challenge is to see if you can find ways to make it fresh again. You don't even need to use it as the main color, just as an accent or a layer is OK with me!

Make sure that you tune in and play next week! I have a really fun challenge planned with prizes donated by Jacksonbelle Embellishments and Stamping Bella and myself.

Thanks so much for your continued support and prayers. My mom is currently waiting more treatment. It is wonderful to have her home from the hospital right now.

Please remember to put WT99 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your work!

Oops! Forgot to add my card! LOL

Happy stamping!

Great challenge, Julia. Your card is awesome! Glorious green looks great with green galore -- in case anyone needs a jump start!

I am so behind on the challenges for the last couple of weeks. That's what happens when I have to fit classes and workshops into my schedule - but that's a good thing. I'm actually working on a card for last week's challenge, but I will try to get this one done, too. Maybe I can double up.

This is a challenge, I hardly ever reach for the Bold Brights. I know I have plenty on hand... Off to see what I can create while giving a spelling test to my 1st grader.

Julia, Glorious green? I just threw up a little in my mouth. Really? Are you serious? For sure? Dang...I might have to break my challenge streak. I am not sure I can make something show worthy with glorious green!

LOL!!!

Green is my favorite color, and I would love a shirt or something in GG, but it's never occurred to me to actually use it yet, though I have the paper and ink...

I'll get on this later tonight, hopefully. Have to drive 8 hours round trip to take my two-year old to the pediatric orthopaedist today... Yes, that's me and a two year old and non-stop Blue's Room, Barney, and Elmo DVDs for 8 hours of drive time -- so whatever you're doing today, know that you could have it worse!!

At least I'll have this challenge to think about on the road. By the time I actually get around to executing, it should really be something!

I love these pop up cards - they are so quick and easy to make. I like Glorious Green - go figure!

Ruff Day?

Thanks for looking.

thanks Julia... it is a neglected color and whenever I use it I really like it and think "Now why don't I use it more often!"

hugs to you and your mom

Glad to hear that your mom is home and doing better. My prayers go out to you and your family. Thanks for the great challenge. I hardly ever use that color so it will be nice to see what I can come up with. Your sample is just gorgeous.
