Thanks for the lift!

I am so excited to be able to participate in the SPCC again. I adore this color combo and couldn't wait to try it out. I got my SU order in and haven't played with it yet. That is one of the things I LOVE about color challeges. They usually get me using my colors in different and fun ways. Here is this weeks combo I combined this with an older Clean and Simple sketch. Another thing that has been fun is going to some of my favorite challenge sites and looking at older challenges. Here is that site if you would like to do that as well.
Here is my creation
As I was thinking about this card I read the Moxie Fab World Blog and found out that there are tons of fun challenges there this week. They are exploring different styles of cards. I thought this might work for the Fun and Cute challenge

So I started with my Early Espresso from SU and stamped with Polka Dot Basics 2 with vesra marks so that I could emboss with clear embossing powder. I then stamped some fun clouds on the bashful blue card stock and the kite from the PTI set Up, Up and Away. I haven't used that nearly as much as I like, but I am going to work on it LOL!

I had to stamp the kite again on white so that I could add the tangerine tango to the card. I finished with the sentiment and then added the buttons. This is another of my many thank yous that need to go out. I might start a count down soon, it seems to motivate my daughter, so maybe it will be motivating for me as well.

It's a good life!
