Just for Fun Friday


Wow...it's Friday already (whew!) and time for yet another Color Challenge at the Just for Fun Rubber Stamps blog. Color Challenge #16 has us pulling out some of our primary colors (or hues in these color families), Green, Blue and Yellow. 

A little October Afternoon Thrift Store paper got me going in the right direction when I started crafting this card.  Not to mention the fact that I've been looking for a reason to use this too-cute Cat stamp from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps too... (as if seven cats isn't enough, I gotta go and actually stamp and color another one... bahahahahaha). Ah well, I'm in touch with my Crazy Cat Lady side and proud of it too.



Actually, I wasn't totally convinced that the patterned paper and the cat went together...but I was determined to use both on this project... so I threw caution to the wind and whipped this baby up despite those feelings.

Okay...so before I go any further ... have you joined us in a challenge over at Just for Fun Rubber Stamps yet?  If not, I want you to promise me that this is the WEEK you will! ... In fact, here's what I'm gonna do to get you to play along.  If you do a project and link it up over at Just for Fun Rubber Stamps... you'll not only have a chance to win a 25% discount at the online store... I'll also visit your blog or gallery and leave you a comment... how's that for incentive to play along...  bahahaha.  Okay, so even if that isn't much of an incentive... I still want you to play...so run (don't walk) to your craft room, roll up your sleeves and join the challenge!!

AND....Don't forget to check out all of our other Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Design Team creations for this challenge. Their links are listed in the sidebar at the left!

I just love this stamp! I think you paired it and the paper together just right! I really enjoy all the elements you used!

I think the paper and image combo worked out GREAT! I'm always in awe of those who aren't afraid to leap off that cliff (unlike myself!). This combo reminds me of the very colorful Talavera pots that I collect
