Real Apricot Blues


This is for today's Color Challenge on SCS, Real Apricot Blues, to use Real Red, Apricot Appeal and Ballet Blue on a card. I used the By Land set from Stampin' Up. I just LOVE this set. It's so cute! I stamped the car in Real Red and Black, then cut out the Real Red "body" and mounted it on the black with dimensionals. The wheels have Dew Drops from The Robins Nest on them. I bought those at Kitchen Sink Stamps. This is a perfect color combo for children, I think. . .especially paired with a stamp set like this.
Verve Visual has their FOUR new releases available for pre-order today! Head on over and check them out! All of their stamp sets are 15% off this month as well. . .and that includes the new sets! Don't forget about their Honorable Guest Contest either! Hope you're having a great day! Things aren't so great here. Savannah has come down with a high fever again. She had one last week, but I thought it was her cough and cold. . .especially when the fever went away. Now it's back and unfortunately, higher than before. We're heading to the doctor today, so hopefully he can figure out what the problem is and take measures to fix it! Hopefully it will be something common and easy to treat. Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- By Land (SU); Paper- Basic Black, Whisper White (SU), blue, red, patterned paper (DCWV) Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Real Red (SU); Accessories- small oval punch, hole punch, paper piercer, polka dot organdy ribbon, Basic Black marker, Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest), eyelet (Making Memories)

Cute cute card!! I just made a Valentine with that card (using our "lovebug" sentiment) - it's a cute set! You did a great job with a very difficult challenge! :)

Oh goodness Charmaine! I hope all will be okay with Savannah! Like Alex said, maybe an ear infection. That's usually Chloe's problem when fevers persist.

Your card is super cute! You are making me wish I hadn't given this set to my sister, as she has two boys and they LOVED the tractor...lol

Hope Savannah feels better soon!
