Baking with Charliene - Color Throwdown #63 & Papertake Weekly #24

My new Clear Dollar stamps came in the mail today, so I was anxious to get at least one of them inked up this afternoon! I chose out Baking with Charliene from Clear Dollar Stamps and after looking over some of the recent challenges, I decided to go with the color challenge at Color Throwdown where they challenge us to use "Kraft, Olive Green, Dark Brown & Dark Yellow". I interpreted to be these stampin up colors: Kraft, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip & Summer Sun. I also was inspired by sketch challenge #24 at PaperTake Weekly (from about 2 weeks ago), and here is the end result. Admittedly, not my favorite creation of late, but it will do. I think my sinuses are inhibiting my creativity just a little bit, and no, I am not admitting to having a cold, nope, just a little sinus inconvienence. lol.. (the power of positive thinking myself into a stronger immune system) -- if that makes any sense at all.. I am not even drugged up because I am not even sick! lol..
Thanks for stopping by, and Thanks for saying HI! Hope to see you again!
