Here is my entry. (Please ignore the spot over the face.....It's not part of the challenge)

Thought I'd pop in and publish the entries for my colour challenge. Unfortunately, there were not many entries. I"m not sure if this is because
- you didn't like the colours that I (the colour wheel) chose
- you ran out of time
- you didn't get a chance to take a photo because of the dull weather
- you don't like colour challenges
- you don't read my blog. LOL
Anyway I have 3 entries to show you, from 2 wonderful stamping friends of mine.
First we have Cassie's entry.
(I think the Really Rust is hiding underneath the Tempting Turquoise of the frame around the words - Cassie told me that she doesn't like RR much! LOL)
This is Jo's first entry.
And here is Jo's second entry.
And the winner is.....................
Jo's card #2
Congratulations Jo.....Look out for something arriving in your mail box soon. (DD1 and DD2 helped me chose the winner)
Thanks for playing. Happy Stamping......Manda

Amazingly, this long weekend, we are having a quiet weekend at home, the kids are happily playing WII, DS has discovered Disney's Aristocats DVD and I've had some time to sit at my craft desk. OMG!
Even more amazingly, I have actually used a sketch challenge and finished the project before the time is up. OMG! OMG!
Here is the Just Add Ink Challenge 21 sketch.
Not my usual colour palette, but I had to take inspiration from the photo. Also please excuse the spray paint over personal details.
Cardstock: Brilliant Blue, Green Galore, Whisper White.
Inks: Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue, Green Galore, Gable Green.
Stamp Set: Circle Circus
Accessories: Flower Brad, 3/4 inch circle punch (for the scallops), Circle Scissors.
Non SU: White ribbon, glue gemstone, silver cord(SU retired).
Here is a close up on the make your own DSP.
My apologies for the not so great photos, but it is a miserable grey day here, so I had to take photos inside.
Wish me luck with the challenge, hopefully I'll link it correctly!
Anyway, I thought I'd share with you a project that the kids made on Friday. It's a bookmark, which is something that they can use, and to a certain extent personalise. Not that you can tell from this photo (sorry that Brisbane blue sky is hiding today, hence the lovely photo of my kitchen bench top), but the bookmark is actually Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White and Basic Black. The stamp set is called A Beautiful Thing.
The children chose stamps from a variety that I had available, and they had an assortment of colours. The one in the photo was my sample for them to copy from.

I am just slightly addicted to DSP - funny that really. Believe it or not, but I even had a paper collection back when I was in primary school. So gotta say that I'm loving this weeks deal!
