#1 COLOUR ME card challenge. 

 This week you get to pick a "team" and play along to see which one wins.  Here are the team choices:



Which will you pick?  Team Tara or Team Haley?!?!  So hard to choose!!!!

I went with Team Tara this week.  We used Cajun Craze, Hello Honey and So Saffron.  This creation features Hambo Stamps digi and sentiment.  The papers are SU! with some Studio Calico DP.  I can't recall the embossing folder (frown) but I pushed the saffron circle through so hard, it shredded the edges a little and made strips, I liked the effect, so I kept it that way.  The dragon is colored with a mix of Copics and SU! markers. I added some American Crafts Hearts for my final touch!


There is more fun over at the DT blogs and on the Colour Me blog!

Katie Brooks  (that's me!)

I hope you will come play along with us. 

#2- Birthday Blog Hop for my Wonderful Friend Kimberly! 

We have a hop line up and you should stop and comment on each of the blogs below.  The last stop on the hop is Kimberly's blog where you should stop and wish her the happiest birthday.  Those that comment on all (especially Kimberly's) will be entered to win a $15 Butterfly Reflections Ink Gift Certificate.  Here is the hop list:

Katie (YOU ARE HERE)

 I made this card for this super special lady because she is EPIC and as it says, she is, "the stuff of Legends!".    Kimberly is one fabulous friend!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIMBERLY!

Hey there Katie! Love your magical creature and cute composition!! I told my student this morning I would turn into something like this dragon if he didn't focus...green horns, steam from my nostrils and ears, a tail with spikes.... the things that work with kids, I tell ya!!! We had a good laugh but he hopped right to it. Anyway, hope you are well and that we can connect in real time soon!! Glad we could do this hop together!!! Xo
