Mojo Monday & Color Throwdown Combo

Happy Monday to ya!!! Hope you had a GREAT weekend!!! We had a HOT one here in California....topping out at about 106 degrees!!! So, to chill out.... we did LOTS of swimming!

Each Monday morning the Mojo Monday blog posts a new sketch for the week. Here is this week's sketch....
Also, The Color Throwdown blog posts a new color challenge each are this week's colors:
So....what I did today was to combine both those challenges into one made the making of this card MUCH EASIER!! Both the design and the colors were already chosen for me.....sometimes that is where I get stumped! There are so many choices of color and stamps that it begin to short out my pea-brain :-D Here is what I came up with.....
I recently ordered some textured cardstock for the first time and now I LOVE IT!!! I'm hoping that now that Stampin' Up has come out with 8-1/2 x 11 textured cardstock for their new InColors, that they will soon be coming out with 8-1/2 x 11 textured cardstock for their regular colors. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed!!

Well, I've had my stampin' fun for the it's time to clean up! I've got mountains of towels to wash from this weekend's fun in the sun.

Until next time....find some time for stamping!!!
Blessings, Cindy
