Sew Fun – Color Challenge #840

Tuesday is Color Challenge day.  Chris challenged us to use Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Coastal Cabana on our cards today with the added challenge of stitches.

That mixed sew perfectly with this week’s Waffle Flower Weekly Challenge. The theme is Sew Fun:

I was one of the lucky winners of an earlier Waffle Flower Weekly Challenge and I picked up the coordinating dies to this Heatwave layering stamp set. I was really glad to get these dies since these stamps aren’t very easy to cut with my ScanNCut.  You know that I find it important to order some extra stamps when a company is kind enough to give me free stamps, so be on the lookout for the rest of my new Waffle Flower stamps in future cards!

I matched my colors the best I could using Distress Oxides and then did my best to match to some cardstock. They are sending friendship notes to seniors in nursing homes. And to really stick with the sewing/stitches theme, I did some wonky stitching with my sewing machine.

You may know that my company was recently acquired by Farmers Insurance.  I’m excited to be part of Farmers now and this week at Farmers is “Spring Into Service Week” and we’ve been introduced to the GlamourGals  #MYDEARFRIEND card campaign.  Click on the link to sign up and send notes of your own!

Also, I had a pleasant surprise this morning when I woke up to find that Barbara chose my card as her favorite from last week’s Color Challenge.  It was another Waffle Flower card and was a really fun one to make:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
