I HAVE made two Mint Melody notepads... just not got round to photographing and uploading yet. Am a bit bogged down with making cards for the 100 birthdays which are coming up in the next week! Why do they all come at once? And WHY do I never get organised sooner?

Mint Melody? Mint Melody? Man....you are killing me. That's my 48th favorite color! Right before that is Glorious Green. Maybe I should make a card with both of those. NOT! LOL

Beate - I love that - 48th favorite color! But I think I put us vanilla and us white ahead of it. And MM & GG - how very march 17th! Only day of the year those should even be mentioned together.
Now I am going to raid one of my SS packs and try to create something tolerable.

MM is towards the bottom of my favorite color list too (I'm Soft Subtles challenged to begin with--All I see is baby cards--except for the plums and Mellow Moss & Sage greens) ...but...I did try to use MM so I'd have a sample for those people that might like it...here ya go...

p.s. Hi Sue!

Robin, that's actually really cute!

Mine is in my gallery! http://splitcoaststampers.com/go/mamakimberly

And I think it is my 46th favorite color now.... blush blossom and glorious green are lower. Glorious green is SO harsh!

Default Mint Melody

I actually started making some cards this morning with Mint Melody. I needed to make up some cards and was looking at my cardstock to see what color I never use and had a lot of.............and you guessed it MM.

I'll finish them up and post it later.

Y'all should see the MM cards on my monitor! Not one of them is the same color and some some of them look worse (yes, that's possible) than MM looks in person (so to speak).

Please note: this is about how the color of the cards looks on my monitor - not that the cards themselves are bad!!!

Well, that might be a SLIGHT exaggeration! But one's DH and one's DS, so that have to be GOOD... and, more importantly, DIFFERENT from each other! Oh, and it's our wedding anniv soon, too!

Do you have a specific place where you post what the daily challenge is or is there a gallery? I am still a little new to this and would love to join in on the fun.

I've been reading everyone's comments this morning about Mint Melody and thought I should check to see if I'd ever made any cards using this color and surprisingly I have! Can't say its my favorite but it must not be my least favorite either.

Default My mint melody contribution

Here is my contribution for today's challenge.

This is my first attempt with using Flexible Phrases on grosgrain.

I am still not a big fan of mint melody though.

My first try with shaving cream technique too. My studio stinks now. Gotta find a brand that is not so scented.
