Bloggers' Challenge -- Pink & Brown

Happy New Year! I've been back for almost a week, but had so much to catch up on. My Mom (and Dad) are doing much better. (Thanks so much to those who sent me their good wishes.) Hopefully you had a wonderful, fabulous Christmas and New Year!
So, now that it's officially 2008, it's time to get back into the swing of things.....and the first order of business is to post my weekly Challenge.....although, I have to admit to "cheating" just a bit! I met a few of the ladies from work this morning for our annual "Christmas" get-together. Well, you KNOW I couldn't go empty-handed! Each one of them received a packet of monogrammed cards and a monogrammed pocket calendar. Donna (her items are here on the left), received her set in Close to Cocoa and Regal Rose.....and so they "qualify" for this week's Challenge. But the set was so extraordinarily easy to make, that I'm almost embarrassed to post them here....but I just LOVE they way they came out! The set features papers from Stampin'Up! and stamps from Papertrey Ink.....and are inspired by Stefanie Summerer from a post a few months back.

Here's a peak at the 3 sets I made: Pam's is in Groovy Guava and Chocolate Chip and Lisa's set is in Soft Sky and Not Quite Navy. They all loved them....and who can't use a few extra note cards at this time of the year?!!


Stamps: Ambassador Monogram Edition, Borders & Corners, Monogram Edition (by Papertrey Ink
Inks: Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Not Quite Navy
CS: Stampers' Select White CS (for card base---from Papertrey Ink), Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy
Misc: Prints Designer Paper (Close to Cocoa, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky), Scallop Punch, Narrow Regal Rose Grosgrain*, Narrow Chocolate Chip Grosgrain*, Blue Bayou Stitched Ribbon
*Retired
NOTE: Card base CS and Stamps are by Papertrey Ink; all other supplies are by Stampin'Up!


These sets were so much fun....and SO EASY to make, I just may need to make more! I can think of a few other ladies in my life who would love these card sets as well!

Thanks for stopping by.....be sure to check out the other bloggers' Challenge ideas! And come back again soon....I'll be posting some specials and class ideas.
