Day 29 of the 30 Day Color Challenge

Hello and welcome to Day 29 of the 30 Day Color Challenge. I did change things up just a bit. For the background on this card I used a Cover-a-Card stamp called "Clouds" from Impression Obsession. This stamp is 6x6. I stamped the paper then cut to fit a card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). The ink I used on the stamp was Tim Holtz Distress "Salty Ocean" for the sky.

The girl on the swing is a Unity Stamp by Phyllis Harris called "Happiness is..." I colored her with my Copic Markers then cut her out as I wanted the background to show through as much as possible. The tree limb is a Tim Holtz Bigz die Holly Branch. I was so bummed when I realized that I had some how gotten a mark on the front of the card. Ugh! Other than that I was very happy with how this turned out!

I was hoping to ride at the State Park again today with my farrier Curtis. I was planning to ride Diamond but we got some rain this morning and it was enough that the park closed the trails. I was so bummed! I could have ridden anyway out where I keep the horses but I chose to catch up on some things here. It is Wednesday and church night for me so it made for a short afternoon anyway.

I did some blogging this afternoon and I had a little help! This is Abercrombie. Vanessa named him when we got him which was in 2000. Yep, this cat is 15! I call him Ab. He usually stays outside when the weather is nice but when it rains or he hears a little rumble of thunder he yells to come in the house. He's not gotten up on the desk in a very long time. Guess he needed some "contact"!
I went to feed on my way to church and there were more clouds building to the Southwest. We did get some rain but only a tenth of an inch. East of us got it a bit worse with some hail. I am thankful we didn't have that!

Have a good one!


  1. Wow love that background and your card design! Beautiful! Thanks for playing along :)

  2. Love that background on your card! I have that stamp and forget to use it! The image is perfect on that background for sure! Our cat Portia will be 15 this fall and then Piper will be 15 next spring. I don't like my pets getting older. Well I don't like myself getting older either. LOL
